The Orange Thunderverb 50 is a bit of a unique design.
To start, it's a 2 channel amp that utilizes a special designed
transformer that allows the amp to recreate bass frequencies all
the way down to 30hz without loosing definition, and that is *REALLY*
hard to do! Leave it up to the genius of Ade Emsley at Orange
UK. I've had dinner with him on more than one occasion, and take
it from me, the guy knows his stuff as well as anyone in the biz!
His design allows the lower frequencies to really cut through when
playing with drop tunings or baritone guitars. Naturally, it
sounds stellar with regular tunings on normal guitars too!
The Thunderverb 50 also comes with a built in attenuator allowing you
to crank the amp (which is absolutely what tube amps need to sound
their best) and then attenuate the output wattage to the speakers so
the overall volume can be tames. AWESOME for multiple
reasons... One, in keeping the neighbors and their phones calls
to the local authoirities at bay! And secondly, you get to keep
your tone at gigs where the sound guy (or those never understanding
band mates) are always crying like a baby to turn down! As you
may kniow, then you turn a tube amp down, you lose tone. LOTS OF
IT. An attenuator helps solve this problem. For more info
on attenuators, you may want to check out an article we wrote: WHAT IS AN AMP ATTENUATOR?
So, what else is special about the Thunderverb 50? Well, how
about a fully tube driven 3-spring reverb that's super lush?
Yep! It's got it. It's also features one of the finest
Effects Loops out there. Orange pioneered tyhe amp effects loop
back in the 70's, so that should come as no surprise. :)
