I've played several SS Orange amps. I've liked them all. I think they've nailed the analog sound. I like their little hybrid Micro Terror. I own one, and can't see ever parting with it. If I got asked to play, I'd grab it... and one of my WGS loaded Marshall 1x10s. I'd be set. This beast was a special order for another customer, that flaked out when it came in. Balked at the sticker price. Another guy bought it, came back within a week... too much amp for him. My buddy kept raving about it, so I brought my pedalboard in. We plugged into an Orange 2x12 and spent at least 2 hours playing it. A bit darker than my usual Marshalls, but extremely articulate and just screams, when you open it up. Nothing like any of the SS Orange amps, I've played... which I actually really like. It reminds me a lot of a Plexi (sacrilege!), to be honest. Has cool EQ lift, that takes the EQ out of the circuit, and its just running through the 12AX7 and EL34 gain stack. With my taste in guitars, I'm not surprised its voiced well for them. I ended up asking them to stash it for me, on the promise I'd buy it. 3 months later... it came home. I had tried matching it with my 1960AV, loaded with Marshall Vintage. Wasn't really feeling it, so I tried running it through a Mesa Boogie 1x12 Recto cab. That was the match. The Orange cabs sound real similar to me... so I traded an old Tweaker 15 head and the Mesa, for a PPC412 (I hate the color orange... I made sure the cab was black). Invested in a THD Hotplate as well, as I think the CS50 sound better pushed. Give up a little bit of tone, but not so much it bothers me. Making room for the new cab. Finished! Some glamour shots... Now, its either a mini Jubilee... or a JCM800, if I can find one for the right price. 2205 near me... but there's something wrong with it... or I just don't like the 2205.
