Orange Rockerverb 50 MkI

Orange Rockerverb 50

The Orange Rockerverb is one of the most successful model of the new generation of Orange amps. Its two channels and very deep reverb make it ideal for many styles, from pure Surf music to modern Metal. This is quite an achievement for a brand that built its reputation in the 70s on a range of amps that mainly offered one lonely (but great) tone.

This particular Rockerverb belonging to Yann Stefani of Skip The Use is from the first series and employs a quartet of 6V6 in its power section. This is fairly unusual for a British amp and its later version employed a pair of more traditional EL34s. It is in fact the power amp that was causing problems with this amp and after a swift repair and a conversion to EL34s, it was up and running for the traditional summer festivals tour of the band.
