New for 2008, Orange Amps rolls out two killer heads at NAMM. First up is the vintage-flavored OR 50, a single channel monster with a special boost and a foot-switchable master. Also, check out the cool 40th anniversary head which will be made with 40 different circuits and given the names of 40 different girls. Jimmy Page has the first one (he's been using a version Orange's AD 30TC for a while now).
