Product Description

High Gain Orange Monster to Bring Out Your Dual Dark Sides: Orange Dual Dark 50

This is the slightly more sociable, 50 watt version, of the Dual Dark family from Orange Amplification. Rooted in the Dark Terror series, this performer's guitar amplifier head has 2 distinct voicings. Channel A is a totally new voicing profile that turns heads. Channel B is familiar to anyone who has heard a guitar played through the Dark Terror system. Control panel layout is very similar to orange's Thunderverb series to which it is a natural successor. the key difference in this series is the amount of gain that has been engineered into the valves and circuitry. Despite the multiple boosts to the guitar's signal players comment that the output sound stays really responsive and still has a delicious organic feel to it.

Designed with "Metal" in mind, the design of these heads keeps them completely balanced and flexible throughout their tonal range. The twin channels are both served by master volume and gain and can throw out superb cleans and overdrive, but come into their own when "insane" metal head distortion is thrown into the mix. Pushing the gain to the limits gives some incredible lead tones and players seem to appreciate the unique flexibility in its response. The combination of valve driven FX loop, voices and sheer responsiveness make this amplifier head a must for the serious guitarist!
