NAMM 2019 – Orange unveils Pedal Baby 100 and TremLord 30!

Orange Pedal Baby 100 Power Amp

The Orange Pedal Baby 100 is a class A/B power amplifier, is a product designed for the touring musician; flatter than a normal guitar amplifier it’s perfect for guitarists running pedal boards, modellers or digital processors. Light, compact and built for the road; fly dates, changing venues are all taken in its stride.

Class A/B power amp: Unlike Class D amplifiers which are not able to keep up. Class A/B delivers a more natural and complete tone while being able to properly power larger cabs into 16 Ohms with at least 70 Watts of clean tone.

Class A front end: Class A coupled with high quality components is the only standard to ensure no crossover distortion inside your amplifier, resulting in genuine, clean and natural tones – plus valvelike hair at higher levels. Especially when driven with any external preamp.

EQ designed for pedals: Different to traditional guitar amplifiers, the EQ has been designed to be flatter and more neutral. At 12 o’clock (neutral) the EQ cuts out allowing the tone to be exactly what your pedals define. With a responsive Bass and Treble control, guitarists can tune their cabinet to get the tone they’re looking for.

Small and portable: Weighing around 3 kg, this is a perfect amplifier for fly dates and can drive any cab from small clubs to huge arena stages.

Orange TremLord 30 1×12 Combo

The Orange TremLord 30 is our very British take on the 1950’s amplifier. It’s a 30 Watt, 1×12 all valve guitar combo with two foot-switchable valve driven tremolo speeds and a two spring reverb tank. Contrary to our other combos, we’ve worked with Italian speaker designer Lavoce to deliver a unique speaker able to deliver more headroom and the smoother top end required for the unique vintage tones of this amplifier while our carefully chosen El84 output valves enable the unique British tone associated with Orange.

Bedroom to headroom switch: When in Bedroom mode (2 or 1 Watts), the circuit has been designed to retain the springiness and feel that we love about valve amps, a sensation that often gets lost with some attenuator designs. This makes for great tones in the practice room or in the studio, with the option to step up a gear to 15 Watt or 30 Watts for the stage.

Valve buffered effect loop: A post – tremolo, FX loop allows players to use proper, built in tremolo anywhere in a modern FX chain. Driven by a 12AT7, the fully buffered, low impedance design allows for any number of effects and cables to be patched in without sacrificing tone. It’s incredibly transparent, meaning your pedal arsenal will perform to its absolute peak.

Two spring reverb tank: Our two spring Reverb tank offers masses of reverb with springs that can be heard, making it deeper, splashier and crashier. Driven by a single 12AT7/Ecc81 valve and our own custom transformer, the spring reverb circuit is our richest sounding spring reverb design to date. Add a foot pedal for switching the reverb on or off during gigs.

Footswitchable valve tremolo: Harking back to tremolos made famous in the 50s, our 12AX7 Valve powered Tremolo gives versatile depth control. The two speed controls are foot-switchable allowing for quick switching between your favourite dialled in settings or defeating the tremolo entirely.
