The Amp for All Occasions
Capable of 0.5, 1, 7 or 15 Watts of output the Rocker 15 is an extremely portable combo that moves seamlessly from the home, to the studio, to the stage. Finally, a small, two channel, bedroom-friendly all-valve amp that you can legitimately gig!
With the Rocker 15 set wide open, smaller venues are comfortably taken care of despite the amp’s miniature footprint. Thanks to a custom Voice of the World Gold Label speaker and beefy transformers, the Rocker 15 has a remarkably potent delivery which takes full advantage of its EL84 output section. Even when scaling back the power, the amp’s tone stays fat and full, oozing warm valve compression and saturation without disturbing the neighbours.
Clever options aside, the Rocker 15 has real character – a twin channel design with a twist. The Natural channel is a purist’s dream with just a single knob: Volume. Finely balanced and supremely playable, this channel is perfectly voiced to bring out the ‘natural’ sound of the instrument under your fingers (or the pedals under your feet). The ‘Dirty’ channel is a more familiar affair with controls for Gain, Volume and a three band EQ section. Both channels are very sensitive to touch and playing dynamics, making Rocker 15 very versatile despite its straightforward, player-friendly layout.
The amp also features a proper valve driven effects loop for total purity from input to output. So, whether you need a rig for low-volume practising, recording, or to be heard on the club circuit, the shape-shifting Rocker 15 will show itself to be the amp for every occasion.
A Rocker for the Stage or Bedroom
In the early 2000s, a new era of high-gain Orange Amplification tone was ushered in with the Rockerverb series of electric guitar amplifiers. The all-tube Rocker 15 is the culmination of over a decade of fine-tuning that game-changing amplifier. The 15 offers an easy-to-use clean channel and a dirty channel that will take you anywhere from classic British crunch to the very heaviest in modern metal. Add in power scaling and switchable attenuation, and there’s nowhere the Rocker 15 can’t take you.
Maximum versatility and easy to use
Rockerverb guitar amplifiers were versatile, making them a staple in rigs for years. The Rocker 15 continues this tradition, offering you two channels with plenty of clarity and headroom. The clean channel features a single volume control. It’s carefully voiced to bring out the best in whichever guitar you’re playing. The dirty channel is engineered to bring the filth, starting you in crunchy rock ‘n’ roll territory and throttling you deep into modern high-gain grind.
Dynamic control with power scaling
Sometimes a screaming 15-watt tube amp is perfect for the gig, but it may be a bit much for the rehearsal room or at home. Now you don’t have to give up the feel and tone only offered by the cranked amp. With onboard power scaling, at 15, 7, 1, and 0.5 watts, you can get those power tubes cooking at volumes that tailor to your situation.
100% tube driven, including the effects loop
Nothing sounds like a tube amp. Orange knows that, which is why the Rocker 15 is a 100% tube design. The tubes aren’t only in the preamp and power sections, either. The onboard, buffered effects loop has been dialed in to give you a more clear, organic, and usable tone — all with the power of 12AT7 tubes. While there are a lot of great-sounding options out there to take you out of the tube world, just remember: nothing sounds like a tube amp.
