Orange OPC – A Computer In An Amp?

This is the OPC (which I’m relatively sure stands for nothing more complicated than ‘Orange PC’).
A computer in an amp?
Orange announced it recently and the associated news article on their web site carries the headline “Orange launches its new PC division”.
I don’t normally just paste in press release text but, in this case I think I will.  I’ll come back to my own views after the release – hope that’s ok.
Orange Amplifiers, the British based pioneering force in guitar amplifiers, are proud to announce the launch of the revolutionary all-in-one …

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.

This new addition to the Tiny Terror Combo range is even more tiny and comes loaded with a Celestion G10 Vintage speaker.  This unit sits …

Gretsch Gets Pimped

That’s quite handsome, isn’t it?  Gretsch have press-gagnged renowned hot-rod graphic artist, JimmyC into decorating a heap of Electromatic G5120 guitars.
Using the same enamel paints he would on cars or bikes, JimmyC hand-paints each guitar. The pinstriping is applied on top of the guitar’s original finish and, because it’s done by hand, each will be an original – no two will be the same.  Cool, eh?
The guitar underneath the stripes is, essentially, Gretsch’s Electromatic G5120 but there are some differences.  Gretsch tell us it will have newly designed pickups and …
