Atlanta, GA (January 8, 2012) – The new OR100 from Orange Amplification can simply be summed up in one word ‘Stunning’. This top of the range guitar amp is the first OR model to feature two channels and delivers up to 100 watts of incredible Orange tone making it the crown jewel of the OR series.

Drawing on the heritage of the original and iconic ‘Pics Only’ launched in 1972, the new OR100 has taken the best of the original features in terms of tone, construction and design and uses today’s expertise to create a guitar amp of epic proportions. Better still, the new amp utilizes the very best valve technology to create a tone that is so very special.

The OR100 incorporates for the first time on an ‘OR’ series amp; twin channels, as well as a valve driven FX loop, foot-switchable boosts and independent EQ. The output power can be scaled between 100,70,50 and 30 watts, plus there is a choice of clean and dirty channels.
