The TH30 head is a 30 watt head running on EL84 power tubes. The simple control layouts of Orange amplifiers have always been a design strength. In the case of the TH30, that philosophy remains very much intact. Each of the amp's two channels—which you can select using a front-panel toggle—is controlled by just three knobs, which means you can dial in both clean and dirty sounds with very little fuss. The Clean channel features a Volume knob and Bass and Treble EQ controls, while the Dirty channel features Gain, Volume, and Shape knobs.
The amp's overall wattage can be cut from the maximum of 30 watts to 15 watts, using the 3-way standby switch on the front panel. And if you're in the mood for some low-wattage, greasy-amp goodness, another rear-panel switch lets you knock the wattage down to a tiny seven watts by bypassing two of the four power tubes. Rounding out the modern options are a series effects loop and a jack for an optional channel footswitch.
This year they have a new Rockerverb, the Rockerverb 50 MKII. The updated head features a new FX Loop with a transparent sound, improved reverb tone, a Mid control on the clean channel, re-designed combos with front-panel controls and a new 1x12 configuration with 2-EL34 tubes.
Next up, is the Thunder 30, which is their newest head and it aims to replace the 30 watt Rockerverb head. Also, the introduced a new 4x10 cab loaded with G10 Celestions and a new 1000 watt Terror Bass head.
