The Year in Gear 2019

The 60+ guitars, amps, pedals, basses, and accessories that stood out from the crowd and earned our coveted Premier Gear Award this year.


Orange TremLord 30

This 30-watt, 1x12 combo puts a new spin on the signature Orange sound with brighter, more articulate tones, greater headroom, and tube-driven multi-speed tremolo and sopping-wet reverb. Boasting a tube-buffered effects loop and powered by a quartet of EL84s, the TremLord 30 yields a generous palette of tones, from gossamer clean to gravelly crunch, and its rugged design and solid workmanship promise a long, healthy working life.
