This is a small practice amp, rather than a genuine micro amp, although with superior sound quality and at a cheap price. It takes a 9V battery (one supplied), or an external power supply (not supplied). It has a volume and tone control, a button for "overdrive", a power button, and a further button for the tuner.

It makes plenty of noise for your bedroom/garage, but not enough to compete with a drum kit in practice. The sound is excellent, with that typical Orange quality, beating out far more expensive (and more powerful) practice and gig amps.

I've been playing for 30 years or so and have always just used my big 50 watt Marshall valve combo to play at home (volume turned down of course to a sensible level)but have always wanted a tiny small amp with serious tone for bedroom use at home, THIS IS that amp ! I've only just taken delivery of it today but the tone and feel has so impressed me that i said "i have to write a review".
Clean sound is good, really good, but it's when you hit the overdrive button that the amp really shines, superb distortion sound with great gain and dynamics, i was playing a Fender Eric Clapton model strat through it which probably does the tone no harm but honestly this is the best tone i've ever heard from a practice amp.
If you're considering getting a small amp for bedroom use at home or for backstage warming up or what have you then get this amp it really rocks, i couldn't stop playing and grinning as i used it for the first time, it sounds that good.
Only downside could be the robustness of it with the wooden cabinet, i saw a review on YOU TUBE where someone had sent for one and the sides were broken off when it arrived and after ordering a new one they used it for a short period of time before the wood broke of again, but i have to say i've not heard of anyone else who has had this problem, but seriously the sound is so good that if that was me i'd just add some glue to the sides and put it back together, the sound and feel is that good.
One more downside or upside depending on your viewpoint is it's so good that you think what their more expensive amps sound like.

While I wasn't expecting the world out of a mini-amp and can't really judge the brand on its portable amp (the big ones being where most companies shine), I really thought Orange would manage to keep the signal from fuzzing up too much on its cleaner setting. It's not particularly difficult for it to over-distort your clean sound even on tiny volumes.

The fuzz of the overdriven sound (when wanted) is the nice classic feel you can expect from Orange, obviously given that you lose out on presence and thickness of sound with such a tiny amp, and that the higher volumes will get a bit messier sounding as with all mini amps I've played. Good quality for its price and if you do a lot of outdoor impromptu jamming, you could do a lot worse than this baby.

When I received the item I was disappointed with its size, I hadn't realized it was that small when I ordered it. I would be a Xmas present and had to show my son before to avoid his disappointment too. However, when he started using it, the quality of the sound for the size of this amp is amazing, perfect for his practice in his bedroom. We don't need anything louder than that at home.

This amp is okay and fairly good for the money and compact size but that's as far as it goes. Clean channel is okay - bit of a jump volume wise to distorted which is also okay not great. It's fine for someone wishing to practice guitar who wants a guide sound. At 3 watts and the dinky size, cheap price it is probably what you should expect. As someone like myself who has another amp for cranking it up with the live band but just wants a wee practice amp it's fine. Feel other reviews have over egged the quality of the sound.

Overall - Looks nice, fine for practising and fits on the mantelpiece - bit of fun rather than serious kit.

Looking for a quality micro amp, then look no further.
The first thing you notice is the build quality of this little gem, that solid Orange build.
The sound is excellent for such a small unit especially if micro effect device, such as pocket pod is used as well.
Tuner is handy and seems accurate.

If your looking at the Marshall micro amp then spend a little more and get this beauty.

A quality piece of kit, not your usual "plastic tat"

I bought this little amp to practice with. I play Bass!!! I's ok if you turn down your volume knob(s) on the bass and have the amp's volume on full. It's fine for playing along with CDs or iPod.

I needed an amp to take away with me, so my first thought was Marshall, as I have been a fan all my life.
BIG MISTAKE . Sent it back as its made of plastic and sounds like tin.

I now bow down to this tiny wooden box which has the big almighty sound, that I would never have believed! could come from a such a small box.
I am really surprised to find that the built in tuner has perfect PITCH! which will be great for a beginner , A tuner like this would set me back at least £30 as the cheaper ones just don't get to the right pitch.
I love the over drive button, wow ! the distortion is amazing, takes you to another world .
Turn the tone level to what ever suits your type of music. half way suits me.
It won't turn on until you have your guitar lead plugged in both ways, this is to save your battery, only then will the tiny light go on..

Its looks amazing ! "BRIGHT ORANGE" I'm looking for a Jimmy page doll to stand in front of it.. how cool is that.

If your looking for a cheap affordable practice amp, congratulations it's here.

Straight out the box battery already fitted, just plug your guitar in and go, simple!

Great sound, this is not one of those ornamental amps you see in the music shop which sound like a wasp on acid in a tin can, this is a genuine guitar amp.

The size does not fit the sound, Built in tuner so no messing about going through your bag to find one, 2 channels clean and dirty great tone adjustment more than enough volume for any room in the house and a headphone socket for midnight sessions.

I can't recommend this enough, if your just starting out playing the guitar this is perfect for you, it's not expensive, its not to loud and it will sound great, you'll have a quality amp for less than £40 from one of the top amp makers in the world. For any body whose been playing a long time as well and looking for a small decent practice amp.
