Orange Dual Dark 50 Guitar Valve Head.  Free Insured Shipping Australia Wide.

Our highest gain amplifiers to date and our 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.

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.

These amps exhibit a lightning fast attach that’s perfect for percussive down-tuned riffing. 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.  Channel A is a completely new design with a voicing that reveals a fat and powerful EQ with strong open mids and a tight response. Channel B takes its roots from our much loved Dark Terror, with a lightning fast attack perfect for percussive down-tuned riffing. The intuitive Shape control, first appearing on our acclaimed Thunderverb series, affects the midrange response whilst interacting with the bass and treble. Dial in a range of tones using just one control, from a full-on scoop, to a rich lead sound with strident mids and rounded highs.

Meanwhile, our footswitchable attenuator circuit allows for control over when and how the amp distorts after the preamp stage. Use the amp’s master volume controls to push the output stage into submission, then reduce the volume level with the attenuator, right the way down to ‘conversation’ levels. This feature can also be defeated remotely for a volume boost in a live setting. Unlike a loadbox, our design ensures the all-important relationship between the output transformer and the speaker remains intact, so even at very low volumes the amp remains springy and responsive. Finally, the amp is equipped with a highly transparent, low impedance valve buffered effects loop to take full advantage of the masses of gain available when using time-based effects.
