NAMM 2011: Orange Amps Launch TH100 Head
This mighty head delivers more tone, greater power and more features. With this knockout combination, the TH100 will be the driving force behind your sound!
The TH100 has exactly the same controls and pre-amp section as its smaller sibiling, but when running at half power (class AB1), it makes 35 watts on two output tubes and 70 watts on four output tubes. Put it to full power (AB2 position) and the amp makes 50 watts with two output tubes and 100 watts with four. Why does it matter that you can switch to half power? Being able to do so means you can reduce the listening volume while presevering the power tube distortion.
Just like its little brother, the TH100's design features the best of the Rocker and TH series, with two channels. The clarity of the classic vintage sparkling sound on one channel plus the stunning overdrive/distortion with its British tone crunch on the other, making this a very classy amp.
The new head will come with four EL34 tubes, four 12AX7 pre-amp tubes and a 12AT7 for the low impendance FX loop. It will also have four internal bias pots so the output tubes can be matched into the amp by a qualified technician. How big and heavy is it going to be?
