Orange Rocker 15 1x10" 15w Tube Guitar Combo Amp
Capable of 0.5, 1, 7 or 15 Watts of output, the Rocker 15 is an extremely portable combo that moves seamlessly from the home to the studio to the stage. Finally, a small, two channel, bedroom-friendly all-valve amp that you can legitimately gig!
With the Rocker 15 set wide open, smaller venues are comfortably taken care of despite the amp’s miniature footprint. Thanks to a custom Voice of the World Gold Label speaker and beefy transformers, the Rocker 15 has a remarkably potent delivery which takes full advantage of its EL84 output section. Even when scaling back the power, the amp’s tone stays fat and full, oozing warm valve compression and saturation without disturbing the neighbours.
Clever options aside, the Rocker 15 has real character – a twin channel design with a twist. The Natural channel is a purist’s dream with just a single knob: Volume. Finely balanced and supremely playable, this channel is perfectly voiced to bring out the ‘natural’ sound of the instrument under your fingers (or the pedals under your feet). The ‘Dirty’ channel is a more familiar affair with controls for Gain, Volume and a three band EQ section. Both channels are very sensitive to touch and playing dynamics, making Rocker 15 incredibly versatile despite its straightforward, player-friendly layout.
The amp also features a proper, valve-driven effects loop for total purity from input to output. So, whether you need a rig for low-volume practising, recording, or to be heard on the club circuit, the shape-shifting Rocker 15 will show itself to be the amp for every occasion.
FROM BEDROOM TO HEADROOM:
Between the Rocker 15’s full and half power modes – plus the aptly named ‘Headroom/Bedroom’ attenuator switch – the amp switches between 15, 7, 1 or even half a Watt. When in Bedroom mode, the circuit has been designed to retain the springiness and feel that we love about valve amps, a sensation that often gets lost with some attenuator designs. The result is that this little combo sounds and feels more like a big amp, even in the lowest power modes. This makes for great tones in the practice room or in the studio, with the option to step up a gear to full power 15 Watt mode for the stage.
UNIQUE TWIN CHANNEL DESIGN
If you’ve ever wondered what your guitars or your pedals actually sounded like, the Rocker Series amps are a joy to play. The ‘Natural’ channel features just one control for volume and is voiced for absolute transparency. Single coils ring out with true clarity and humbuckers sing with woody overtones. Cleaner settings produce clear, glistening tones whilst cranking the volume reveals a bluesy crunch that loves to be kicked harder with boost and overdrive pedals. Quite literally, you get out what you put in. The ‘Dirty’ channel has a more traditional look with Gain, Master Volume and a three band EQ. It too can be set on the cleaner side as a second rhythm sound, or dialled for various flavours of British grit for leads. (Optional FS-1 footswitch sold separately)
CUSTOM ORANGE VOICE OF THE WORLD GOLD LABEL SPEAKER
EL84 valves and 10” speakers are a time-honoured combination for classic guitar tone, but in order to make the smallest possible gigging combo we decided to develop our own custom driver. With a sensitivity of 101dB, our Voice of the World Gold Label 10 makes the most of every available Watt, and you’ll soon notice the extra clout on stage. This high level of efficiency, plus a surprisingly gutsy bottom end means maximum projection from this tiny combo, whilst retaining the crisp, bell-like chime of a great 10” speaker.
ENGINEERED TO BE PLAYED
At Orange, we expect our amps to work for a living. For the best possible tone and durability, the Rocker 15 uses the same proprietary transformers found in our iconic Terror Series. Like our latest flagship valve amp heads, the Rocker combos do away with plastic connector blocks and ribbon cables in favour of hand-soldered flying leads. The chassis-mounted switchgear is secured to a welded steel enclosure and housed in a sturdy 18mm plywood cabinet. As for the amp’s effects loop, we’ve opted to keep the signal path all-valve to preserve the amp’s tonal integrity.
