Hi! I'm currently looking for a new amp. I want a 3 band EQ and Effects Loop. I'm about to go for the Orange OR15H but I haven't pulled the trigger yet because I think it might not have enough of gain for my style.
I want it for some kind of stoner/doom/sludge-type sound with some hardcore and metal influences. I could list tens of bands I wish to sound like but something along the lines of High On Fire would pretty well sum it up.
I want to go with Orange. I know I have the Dark Terror and the Jim Root but the first isn't tweakable enough and lacks the Effects Loop, and the later is a signature amp I wouldn't ever buy. I hate signature gear and I'm not really a fan of either Stone Sour or Slipknot, so that's something I can't live with.
So the question is, will the OR15H live up to my gain needs? Can it do some high gain type sounds? I've seen some videos where it sounds like it can do it, despite being announced as more of a vintage Orange sound type of gear.
What do you think? Should I get it? Any OR15H owners here willing to give some input?
Here are five videos with some of the tones I'm looking to achieve.
Any and all ideas, sounds and thoughts welcomed. Thanks in advance. If there is some other brand/model that will fit me better please state it. I'll consider other options besides Orange.
High on Fire - Ethereal
The Sword - Apocryphon
Pallbearer - Foundations
Brainoil - Opaque Reflections
Converge - The Saddest Day
Sounds like enough gain for me.
