Win tickets to see The Strypes in Stoke-on-Trent this Wednesday

Published: Thu July 04, 2013  News Feed

"Hot Irish quartet The Strypes ripped up the John Peel stage with a blistering set of raw, garage blues rock, closely modelled on the Stones circa ‘64, with a dash of Eric Burdon’s Animals aggression, Yardbirds-style soloing and Dr Feelgood intensity. All this, and they are younger than One Direction, schoolboys ready to take over the world."

The Strypes

If reviews like the above (from the Telegraph) don't get you excited about The Strypes, you probably just don't like music. Fresh from an incredible Glastonbury show, the Irish blues rockers embark on their first UK headline tour and we've got a pair tickets to give away for the Stoke on Trent date.

The gear they'll be using: Orange amps

Three out of The Strypes' four members love Orange amps - and you can't blame the drummer for not using a guitar amp! Lead guitarist Josh McClorey says:

"I love the dirty sound you can get from Orange amps as it really suits the rough and ready R&B sound I try to produce. The amps have a great range in tone without having an unnecessary amount of control knobs and this appeals to me as it is simple yet effective."

Josh and fellow six-stringer Ross Farrelly both use the OR50 Head (pictured), while bassist Pete O’Hanlon pairs an AD200B Mk3 Head with an OB C810 cab.
