Bring on the power of rolling thunder!
With a 2-channel Orange Thunderverb 50 Head, you get the boutique sound that has made the Thunderverb 200 a success, but with the performance of a smaller amp. The result is that you can push the Thunderverb 50 Head hard enough to overdrive its power tubes without either dialing up the attenuator or traumatizing your house pets. The variable attenuator allows you to record with the same tone that you play with live, without running the risk of blowing out your mics. On stage or in the studio, your Orange Thunderverb 50 Head will always be your go-to guitar amp.
Great on-the-fly shaping options
When you play live with the Thunderverb 50 Head, you have several great tone-shaping options. Three footswitch inputs make it easy to instantly switch between playing styles. One footswitch lets you jump between attenuated and the full sound of the Thunderverb 50 Head’s output. If you’re familiar with using the gain knob on your guitar to hit your tubes with varying intensity, this is a great way to make sure you get the right amount of breakup at the output volume you want.
Footswitchable reverb and effects loop adds dimension to your tone
Another footswitch lets you kick in or out the spring style reverb that puts the “verb” in the Thunderverb 50 Head’s name. This tube-driven effect doesn’t just call up the sound of classic spring reverb, its rich and resonant sound is an absolute dream to play with. You also get a tube-driven effects loop included in the Thunderverb 50 Head’s reverb circuit, making it easy to get an absolutely huge range of tone when you play live.
Two channels deliver double the playing pleasure
And what would a 2-channel amp be without an instant way to jump between the clean A channel and the dirty B channel? The A channel gives you a wide tonal range that revives some of the qualities of the earliest clean-style Orange amps. The B channel delivers bone-crushing punch and screaming drive! By using the Thunderverb 50 Head’s new shape control, you can scoop some of the mids and pile up the bass and treble, or you can tap into the 3-band EQ (the same on the Rockerverb series) and dial in your signature tone.
