Orange Unveil New Amps

Orange have been keeping busy and have used NAMM to launch a number of new models.

The Class 5 is a low-powered 5-watt amp in the style of the Bluesbreaker combos (albeit smaller).  ECC83s in the preamp and an EL84 handling power promised Marshall valve crunch.
Now you can hear how it sounds.

So, what do you think?  Does it do it …
