Orange Amps Rocker-32 30W 2X10 Combo Tube Guitar Amp

The Rocker 32 can be run just like a ‘normal’ combo – straight in or with standard mono effects loop connections. Even before you start experimenting, you’ll soon realize that this is not just another bland, soulless pedal platform, but a serious amplifier in its own right. The Rocker 32 has classic Orange mojo in abundance and its 2×10-inch configuration means a full and fast delivery whilst keeping the footprint small. There’s even some clever circuitry under the hood to give the amp a wider spread of sound than most regular twin speaker combos. At the heart of the Rocker 32, though, is its stereo effects loop which opens up a world of limitless possibilities for your pedalboard. If you’re into epic panning delays and massive soundscapes, connect the Rocker 32 for full stereo operation, unlocking enormously spatial tones that wash over the audience. If you’re more old-school, you can patch your pedals in ‘wet/dry mode, with your effects appearing in one speaker and your clean guitar tone in the other. This makes for great separation and clarity on stage or in the studio. The front end of the Rocker 32 is one-of-a-kind. The Natural channel features just one control (Volume) and has been carefully voiced to bring out every nuance of different guitars, pickups, and pedal combinations. There is plenty of clean headroom here but this channel also loves to be hit with overdrive and distortion stomps. The Dirty channel has a more familiar look to it with a three-band EQ, gain, and master volume controls, allowing for all different flavors of British crunch – and it can be set clean too. There’s also a handy half power mode to drop the volume level if you like to push the EL84 output valves a bit harder for more saturation. This switches the Rocker 32 from the full 30 Watts (15W a side) down to a more home-friendly 15 Watts (7W aside).

Mono or Stereo Operation

There are some great studio-quality effects for guitarists nowadays with two outputs for stereo operation, but normally you’ll need a pair of amps to take advantage. The Rocker 32 features stereo effects return with two separate valve output stages, so you can unlock the full potential of your pedalboard with just a single self-contained stereo combo. If you like to keep things simple, the Rocker 32 can be connected just like any other mono amp, but the loop can also be patched in various ways to achieve stereo panning effects, a wet/dry setup, or even to run separate effects chains to each speaker (with the help of an ABY splitter).

Unique Twin Channel Design

If you’ve ever wondered what your guitars or your pedals sounded like, the Rocker Series amps are a joy to play. The ‘Natural’ channel features just one control for volume and is voiced for absolute transparency. Single coils ring out with true clarity and humbuckers sing with woody overtones. Cleaner settings produce clear, glistening tones whilst cranking the volume reveals a bluesy crunch that loves to be kicked harder with boost and overdrive pedals. Quite literally, you get out what you put in. The ‘Dirty’ channel has a more traditional layout with Gain, Master Volume, and a three-band EQ. It too can be set on the cleaner side as a second rhythm sound or dialed for various flavors of British grit for leads.

Big Sound, Small Footprint

The Rocker 32’s clever dual output stage design and 2×10-inch speaker configuration mean this amp sounds much bigger than its dimensions would suggest. One output stage features its cathode follower which adds a subtle widening effect and an extra dimension to the sound, even when operating in mono. With a sensitivity of 101dB, our custom Voice of the World Gold Label 10 speakers make the most of every available Watt, and you’ll soon notice the extra clout on stage. This high level of efficiency, plus a surprisingly gutsy bottom end means brilliant projection whilst retaining the crisp, bell-like chime of a great 10-inch speaker.

Engineered to be Played

At Orange, we expect our amps to work for a living. For the best possible tone and durability, the Rocker 32 uses the same proprietary transformers found in our iconic Terror Series. Like our latest flagship valve amp heads, the Rocker combos do away with plastic connector blocks and ribbon cables in favor of hand-soldered flying leads. The chassis-mounted switchgear is secured to a welded steel enclosure and housed in a sturdy 18mm plywood cabinet. As for the amp’s stereo effects loop, we’ve opted to keep the signal path all-valve to preserve the amp’s tonal integrity.
