General Your general opinion of this product. This head has replaced all my other amps for small to large gigs. I use this head with a PPC112 cab for small gigs and can set it to 7 or 15 watts and large gigs with a pair of PPC212s set at 30. The half power switch on the front and the 4/2 tube switch on the back gives you a lot of options for a 7watt to 30 watt range with 2 options to run it at 15 watts (2 or 4 tubes). Shape knob is all vintage tones run to the left (more mids) and a hard rock/metal machine on the right (full right is more treble and bass, less mids). Clean channel is very clean and lively. It's not bright like a fender but it sounds "warmer" and "fatter" to me. I don't have a problem with really heavy handed drummers who crash on Zildjian Z Customs and can easily drown them out with a turn of the volume knob. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Quality is great. Don't let the made in China fool you. They don't have non company shops make their amps like some companies do overseas. They built their own factory there, hired and trained their own workers and brought in managers from their England plant. Great stuff. Have been gigging a Tiny Terror for the last 4 years before I got this and never had a single issue out of that amp. Expect this amp to be the same and I'll be gigging it a few times a week. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? I can set it clean with reverb and delay through the fx loop and can get lost in the tones. Extremely responsive to your pick attack. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Clean: Darker than fender/Little brighter than mesa. Thicker/warmer than fender. Distortion: Covers Vintage/Modern voices very well. I'd say its 65% modern tones 35% vintage. If you were looking for a pure vintage voiced amp you might would be better with an AD series amp. This amp is tight, full bottom. Reliability How has it stood up over time? 10/10 Been gigging it on avg twice a week for the last 5 months. So far so good!
orange you glad you bought this?!.. oooh YEAH!!!!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Don't let that slogan "made in china" hold you back! The build quality on this head is Ffu%%^%%^ng OUT OF THIS WORLD! simply solid all the way through! This will live up to any ENGL , MESA quality standard! Reliability How has it stood up over time? I haven't done many gigs with it yet, but I would say this is built to last! no doubt about it! General Your general opinion of this product. Having owned Mesa for most part of my life I did not think Orange would have me hooked! I plugged the guitar and was rewarded with immediate satisfaction! I went ahead and also ordered the 1 X 12 cab extension cause it really deserves a decent cab to match with! the list goes on. I really got a great deal on this head from AMS, I got a "dent and scratch" unit for $760 bucks! Unbelievable deal! full warranty from Orange, after receiving the unit I honestly expected to find dents and scratches...NOTHING! They must've shipped a brand new one to me cause I could not find anything, maybe a minor little mark on the side but you can't really see it unles you're 2 inches from it! WOW and WOW Can't go wrong with AMS! Solid all the way! You guys rock! Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? N/A Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? N/A Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Orange is an awesome color! I love it even more now! I went ahead and ordered me a Lava Coil Orange cable to match it with the amp and cab! looks freaking awesome! Action How was the action out of the box? Plug and play = immediate satisfaction!
Sweet sweet tone!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? So far, yeah! Had it a little under a week, we shall see! Reliability How has it stood up over time? Good so far! General Your general opinion of this product. The amp is amazing. I have gotten tones anywhere from vai, to metal, to praise music, to indie, it's got it all! Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Orange knew what they were doing with 3 knobs a channel! Sounds better than my old Marshall jvm and egnater renegade! IMO Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Heaven Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I have an Orange cab, the tolex is a slightly different shade of orange, but it was also made in China vs the cab and other higher end orange amps coming from UK Action How was the action out of the box? Problem free and left me in awe!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? BUILT LIKE A TANK, SIMILAR TO MY OLD MESA BOOGIE. QUALITY IS TOP NOTCH. Reliability How has it stood up over time? THIS AMP SHOULD STAND UP WELL OVER TIME HOWEVER I JUST BOUGHT IT SO I CAN'T SAY FOR SURE. General Your general opinion of this product. TE TH30 GETS ACES IN ALL CATAGORIES. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? NOT APPLICABLE. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? THE TH30 MATCHED WITH THE ORANGE 2X12 CABINET PRESENTS COMPLETE TONAL VERSATILITY. ITS BRIGHT, WARM, MELLOW, OR AGRESSIVE DEPENDING ON HOW YOU DIAL IN THE TREBLE ON THE CLEAN SIDE OR THE SHAPE AND GAIN CONTROLS ON THE DIRTY CHANNEL. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? THE ORANGE TOLEX COVERING IS VERY COOL AND GROOVY TO THE EYES AND LOOKS TO BE AS STURDY AS ANY OTHER. Action How was the action out of the box? NOT APPLICABLE
What can you say, it's an Orange.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This product is made very well, very sturdy. No issues at all yet. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Well, it's not even quite a month old yet, but it's an Orange, so i wouldn't assume it's going to head downhill anytime soon. General Your general opinion of this product. This is an amazing amp, overall the quality here is amazing. The tone is incredible, it's well built and it's very simple to use. Not too heavy, but not light enough to feel like a toy. Affordable powerhouse, this amp is worth it in every sense of the word. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Action How was the action out of the box?
Orange Head and Mesa Boogie cab are the perfect combination!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Great product. Reliability How has it stood up over time? It's an orange, of course it's reliable! General Your general opinion of this product. This head is outstanding. The warm sound coming from a valve/tube amp compares to non. Don't be fooled by the 30w out put. I also own a marshall mg100fx and this 30w head kicks the Marshall's but anytime. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Volume levels are not balanced. So when switching from clean to distortion need to have the distortion volume knob set higher....Not a problem for me as I use the clean channel with distortion pedals. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Same as it's siblings..All nice an d orange :)
