Orange Rockerverb II Launched

A couple of weeks ago, we took a brief look at some of the new amps launched by Orange at this years NAMM.
Time to take a closer look at one of them.
This is the Orange Rockerverb II.  With it, Orange plans to build on the original Rockerverb reputation and to improve the specification and range available.  Orange tell us that the new Rockerverbs have been upgraded based on feedback received from both endorsers and players.
The new Rockerverb range includes both a 50-watt and 100-watt head and a 50-watt combo (available …

Hear It: Marshall Class 5 In Action

We talked about the Marshall Class 5 amp on it’s release a while back and it’s safe to say we were looking forward to hearing how it sounded.

Now you can hear how it sounds.
Joe Bonamassa demos the Class 5, both in a band context and by showing how it sounds at different settings.
So, what do you think?  Does it do it …
