TopGuitar is proud to announce that the OR15H all valve guitar amplifier head with a PPC212 cabinet from Orange were reviewed in the November issue of the magazine and received a “Top Gear” editors’ award this month. The products were delivered for review by Orange distributor in Poland, Arcade Audio.

Below are some excerpts from a successful review by gear department editor Mikolaj Sluzewski, which may serve as reasons for the award:

“This amplifier – which is typical of most Orange amps – perfectly transfers the character of the guitar, the pickups and playing style.”

“With full power of 15 Watts, believe if or not, the OR15 screams like crazy. It is probably thanks to a perfectly matched cabinet which lets us take advantage of this little head’s full potential. In moments like these, one feels a lot of respect for the engineers who thoroughly planned, designed and built the equipment that delivers what musicians really need.”

“As opposed to many modern and multifunctional amps of today, the OR15 stands out with simplicity, naturalness and a look back to the very roots of guitar tone to extract and bring what is most relevant for contemporary player. With moderate measurements, the OR15H & PPC212 set is incredibly loud and can easily handle a typical band setting with bass and drums. Orange sound is the real essence of rock.”

The latest issue of TopGuitar magazine is available across Poland in Empik and Ruch press retail networks, in the online store (, and as mobile version for tablets and smartphones using iOS ( or Android ( operating systems.
