PG's Joe Coffey is On Location at the 2009 New York Amp Show where he visits the 3 Monkeys booth. In this video segment, we get to check out their Orangutan model. The Orangutan is a 4-6V6 power tube amp with a six position rotary "Voice" switch that changes both the gain structure and tone as it is rotated clockwise and runs from 30-35 watts. In addition, it features 3-ECC83 preamp tubes, custom hand-wound transformers by 3 Monkeys, footswitchable "Lift" control for boost and clarity and a Accutrone Reverb Tank.

A lot of cruel fates can befall a gig. But unless you’re a complete pedal addict or live in high-gain-only realms, doing a gig with just a reverb- and tremolo-equipped amp is not one of them. Usually a nice splash of reverb makes the lamest tone pretty okay. Add a little tremolo on top and you have to work to not be at least a little funky, surfy, or spacy. You see, reverb and modulation go together like beans and rice. That truth, it seems, extends even to maximalist expressions of that formula—like the SolidGold FX Ether.
