Since the best way to start a Monday is with a review of sweet unreleased new gear, we’re taking a look at Orange Amplification’s Dual Dark Amplifier. It straddles a nice gap between what a lot of people think of as the “classic” Orange sound (similar to a Rockerverb, which I in a fit of nervousness referred to as a “Rocketverb”) and the more aggressive tones of the company’s Dark Terror amp. But a picture is worth a thousand words, and our video is 30 pictures per second, so watch below for something infinitely more valuable than anything I could type here.
As a bonus, here’s a video we filmed at NAMM. It’s Kurt Ballou playing (better than I do) through a Dual Dark, using one of his new God City Instruments guitars.
