Orange Rocker 30H Reviews
This head is one of the best I have used in over 30 years of live and recording work. The list includes Vox, Marshall, Soldano, Miles Platting, Peavey, Line 6 etc ad nauseum.
Very simple, just a Natrual channel with a volume only. This channel will faithfully and accurately amplify your guitar, thus if your guitar sounds pants then this head will do nothing to disguise the fact!
I use Strats and Gordon Smith mainly and the sound is fabulous.
To get any sort of crunch on this channel you have to wind it up big time, then the volume is pretty bone shaking, especially through a 212 or 412 cab. The sound is just to die for at high volume.
The fun begins on the Dirty channel, which has Volume, Gain, Lo, Mid and Hi. This channel will give you anything you could ever need, from clean and chiming through to dark and dirty. Volume at 1 o clock and gain at 11 o clock is what I use for Rock and Blues, and unmiced the sound cuts through in a 300 - 500 seater, even up against a mental drummer who plays a Pearl Masters kit, a 2.5Kw PA,and a bassist using a Trace 300 watt head and 410 cab.
Its a bit fussy about pedals, so be careful. My TS9 sounds good through it but not as good as it does thru other amps.
No reverb on this puppy so if you like reverb you will have to plug one in.
Channel switching allows seamless, noiseless clean to dirty. Orange footswitch is not supplied and is expensive. (C'mon Orange !!)
The R 30 is good at bedroom/rehearsal room levals also. It will break up nicely at low volumes with a bit of gain on there, but as always the best tones are at higher volumes.
All in all got nothing bad to say. Tone is quite middly, but thats Orange. If you like Fender Reverb clean and chiming the Orange is good but not quite there. Crunchy to Hi gain, there is little that can touch this amp.
Highly recommended !
