The Orange Rocker 15 Guitar Amplifier Combo is designed to be the ultimate in power and portability, with versatility at its core. Satisfying the demands of bedroom rockers, those jamming with friends, and even those looking for fat tones at recording-friendly levels, this beauty is perfect for the home, studio, and the stage. The Rocker 15 is the all-valve amp that is a gig-ready beast.
As we've come to expect from the team at Orange, the Rocker 15 is built like an absolute tank, with an output to match. It may have a diminuitive footprint, but it quite heartily makes its presence felt. Boasting a trio of ECC83 (12AX7) valves alongside a single ECC81 (12AT7) valve, you have plenty of gain at the pre-amp stage to kick up an enormous amount of energy. A pair of EL84s in the power amp stage give you the legs to be heard in the most boisterous of small venues. The custom Voice of the World Gold Label speaker and beefed up transformers - same ones from Orange's mighty 'Terror' series - ensure that the fullness of your fatty tones sing with brilliant clarity.
The Rocker 15 is a twin-channel monster that offers a Natural channel that keeps things simple with a single knob for Volume. Simply plug in, turn up, and you're in Orange heaven. Your guitar and pedal setup is given full command of the amp's natural tones. The Dirty channel offers a plethora of control including Gain, Volume and a three-band EQ section, giving you a thick and meaty chunk with frequency sensitive control for maximum control. Both channels respond to your playing dynamics beautifully, ensuring the subtle nuances of your performance are translated transparently.
Orange have equipped the Rocker 15 with a proper valve-driven effects loop for exquisite tonal purity from source to output. By taking advantage of the built-in half-power mode and/or headroom/bedroom attenuator switch, you are guaranteed a sublime response for low-volume practise and recording with the same grunt and gristle you'd expect at full volume.
Sparing no expense when it comes to build quality, the Rocker combo's chassis-mounted switchgear is secured to a welded steel enclosure, and housed in a rock-solid 18mm plywood cabinet - just as with Orange's flagship valve amp heads. The Orange Rocker 15 Guitar Amplifier Combo is built for life on the road, and you'll wonder how you ever got by without one.
