Early Days of Orange
OMEC Amplifiers and Cabinets
In 1977, OMEC introduced an entire line of 150-watt transistor instrument and public address amplifiers. The line of budget amplifiers included (left) a 150-watt instrument amp with 5-band graphic EQ and built-in Reverb, Phase, and Boost effects and 2x12" cabinet ; (middle) a 150-watt instrument amp with 5-band graphic EQ and 1x15" Bass Reflex Horn cabinet; and (right) a 150-watt, 4-channel PA amp with 5-band graphic EQ and 2x12" PA cabinets. The solid-state amps bridged the gap between affordable offerings and Orange's higher-end valve amps.
