Dual Dark 50w Amplifier Head Item Description
The Orange Dual Dark 50 is Orange's highest-gain amplifier to date! If you need to get heavy - the Dual Dark is the Orange for you. The 2-channel amp has a proprietary output transformer design that ensures excellent string to string clarity and a sturdy bass response that doesn't flub out no matter what drop tuning you're using. 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. The amp also has a footswitchable attenuator circuit for controlling how and when the amp distorts after the pre-amp 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. 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.
