Orange Dual Dark 50 Tube Set
The Orange Dual Dark 50 Tube Set consists of 5 x 12AX7, 1 x 12AT7 and 2 x EL34.
This amp is Orange’s highest gain amplifiers to date and their very first amps to offer four stages of gain on two channels, the Dual Dark heads are both aggressive and flexible at the same time. With gain and master volume controls on both A and B, either channel can serve up clean, overdrive or insane levels of distortion, making these amps incredibly pliable despite their obvious Metal leanings.
The Dual Dark 50’s proprietary output transformer design ensures superb string-to-string clarity and a bass response that remains tight and focussed, right the way up to stage volumes. Don’t be fooled by the 50 Watt output rating. This head never sounds compromised, even when pushed to the limit. The full 50W can even be dialled back to 25W for earlier output valve distortion at lower volumes.
