Orange Amps - Visiting With Music Royalty



Some famous faces popped by the Orange booth at NAMM this year, not surprising given they've announced some stellar new amps (Twin Channel OR100 & Custom Shop 50) and a real game changing piece of gear with their VT1000 automated valve tester.

Famous Faces Using Orange


None other than Stevie Wonder, reminiscing with Orange founder Cliff Cooper about using Orange amps on seventies classics like 'Superstition'.


Kellindo Parker striking a pose, Kellindo is plays with R&B and soul star Janelle Monáe. Quite a mighty wall of amps too, we spy a Rockerverb in there.


Larry ‘Ler’ LaLonde uses Orange. A true one of a kind guitarist with pioneers of oddball rock/funk Primus. Anyone who helped write the South Park theme tune is a legend in our book.


Glenn Hughes rocks out with Cliff Cooper. Currently playing with supergroup Black Country Communion, alongside Joe Bonamassa and Jason Bonham. For another famous Bonham collaborater see below.

There's more than a few big names using Orange who weren't spotted at NAMM. Few brands are more synonymous with British guitar tone than Orange and few names are bigger in the annals of rock than Jimmy Page. Here he is at the Led Zeppelin reunion gig in 2007 with what appears to be an AD30 (available as a twin channel amp too), the recording of the concert  was recently released on Blu-Ray/DVD/CD (and hopefully vinyl soon too).



It's not just the old guard that use Orange from that inimitable crunch, sizzle and grind. Progressive metalers Mastodon are also big fans of the Orange sound, with Brent Hinds using a Thunderverb and Troy Sanders appearing in this fun, little video where a Micro Terror saves the day.
