The new Orange Rockerverb 50 MKIII head carries on the tradition of the popular Rockerverb series, offering flexibility, great tones and plenty of power for live performers and recording artists. This all-valve guitar amp also features Orange's tube-driven spring reverb.
This supremely versatile, high-gain amplifier features the kind of voice that has cemented itself as a firm favourite of touring artists and session aces the world over. The Rockerverb MKIII also features the same footswitchable attenuator that has been so popular with users of our Thunderverb and Dual Dark Series amps.
With this amp you get the choice between a supremely bright and 'chimey' clean channel, with plenty of headroom and warmth that we've come to expect from Orange. The valve driven spring reverb has a much more extensive range than previously, and this is just one of many refinements that Orange have made to the Rockerverb series of amps to bring you the finest-sounding and most feature-laden entry to the series to date.
Highly Versatile Twin Channel Design
Arguably the most attractive feature of the Rockerverb amps thus far has been those iconic high gain tones. This tradition is continued in the MKIII, but with added flexibility - produce anything from classic British crunch to the filthiest of the filthy whilst maintaining an oustanding amount of clarity and preserving that tone. The Clean channel has also been ever-so-slightly adjusted to produce a brighter range of tones, but with more accurate control via the re-engineered two-band EQ section.
Valve Driven Spring Reverb
The Rockerverb 50 MKIII houses a single 12AT7/ECC81 valve and custom transformer to help recreate the classic spring reverb sounds of yesteryear. This is arguably Orange's richest sounding spring reverb thus far, producing a more intuitive and usable sweep than ever before and giving you a nice range of sounds to play with.
Footswitchable Attenuator Control
The volume controls of the Rockerverb 50 MKIII contain an Attenuator certain, which helps determine just when and how the amp distorts after the preamp stage, meaning you can lower the overall volume level of the amp whilst keeping a nice measure of control of the amp's saturated output - even at the lowest volumes this amp remains springy and responsive! Adjusting the Attenuator control clockwise will reduce the overall output level, but this can be remotely bypassed via a footswitch to give you a volume boost on either channels when ripping out those solos.
Switchable Output Power
One of the key features of the Rockerverb 50 MKIII is the ability to switch your power output levels to 'half power', reducing the output power to 25 Watts and giving you more control over the headroom and breakup from the output valves. At a reduced output you get a greater amount of valve clipping and saturation at lower volume levels!
