Orange RT Rocker 15 Terror 15W Head
Orange RT Rocker 15 Product Overview by GAK
A head only version of Orange's popular Rocker 15 combo, the RT Rocker 15 blends innovative technology with beautiful orange styling.
The unit now features a tube FX loop and its simple, player friendly layout makes it perfect for onstage performance.
The two channels onboard; natural and dirty give you the option to change up the tone to suit your style. The single control natural channel packs some serious bottom end, whereas the dirty channel gives you the ability to create grittier, distorted sounds. The Head features an EL84 output section, giving your tone some vintage warm valve compression and saturation.
Orange Product Overview
Orange Amplification is proud to introduce the Rocker 15 Terror, the head only version of the enormously popular Rocker 15 Combo.
The Rocker 15 Terror is the result of an impeccable blend of technology and styling from the Rocker 15 Combo and the Terror range of amps. Designed to be versatile, with a straightforward, player friendly layout, the new Rocker 15 is an amplifier comfortable on the stage, in the studio or in the bedroom.
With the Rocker 15 set wide open, smaller venues are comfortably taken care. The Rocker 15 has a remarkably potent delivery which takes full advantage of its EL84 output section. Even when scaling back the power, the amp’s tone stays fat and full, oozing warm valve compression and saturation without disturbing the neighbours.
Ade Emsley, Orange Amps Technical Director, explains ‘players were asking Orange to bring back the Rocker 30, so we took the Rocker 15 combo, added a tube FX loop to the original front end and made a smaller version.’
When they were launched last year, Guitarist Magazine called the Rocker 15 and 32 ‘deceptively versatile combos, among the best Orange has ever released’. Whilst The Guitar Magazine described their sound as ‘the natural channel is a joy, with plenty of chime and harmonics complexity and a raw, moreish overdrive as you crank the amp. Switch over to the dirty channel and you get rock tone that carves out space in the mix.’

My first ever Orange amp, and I'm not disappointed. Build quality looks good, sounds wonderful, good features. Highly recommended!
Great lunchbox amp that is versatile and gives me great tones for lead or rhythm. It would be nice if the foot switch was included.
Excellent head. Perfect for home use and at the flick of a switch, for small gigs. Great sound at all volumes
Cracking amp, try one!
