Orange Amplification’s Custom Shop Series represents over forty years of master craftsmanship, creating and building the very best Orange amps in limited quantities that have become much sought after and critically acclaimed.

The Custom Shop 50 is the culmination of years of experience and expertise. This new amp offers the finest in hand-wired, point-to-point workmanship and the definitive British Rock amp. Each of these amplifiers is an individual masterpiece, built to perfection using only the highest-grade materials and components. Beautifully crafted in the Orange custom shop, this amazing amp is full of wonderful, powerful sounds, all with that hallmark Orange tone.

The amp can switch between 50 watts class A/B and 30 watts class A. The 30-Watt Class A mode has all the jangle, chime, and clarity you could ever want in an amp. Flipping the switch to the 50-watt Class A/B mode unleashes one of the most inspiring British Rock experiences you’ll ever encounter. The gain, bass, treble and master controls give you absolute control and there’s an optional foot-switchable sustain boost.

Starting with the Ultimate Speaker Demo, an ever-increasing number of the GearTunes audio  clips are being tracked using the Radial JCR Reamp. The Reamp was invented by my good friend and colleague John Cuniberti who engineered/co-produced many of Joe Satriani's most infamous recordings.

For GearTunes, reamping allows me to record a track where the guitar "hears" the amp in the room, but initially only the guitar or guitar and effects signal is recorded. This allows me to spend additional time perfecting amp tones and mic placement once I have the performance I'm looking for. One of the byproducts of this process is the creation of GearTunes DI Clips which enable you to play select guitars and effects through your amp by using your mobile device or computer as a reamp device.

For GearTunes DI Clips - and Gear Tune DI Clips ONLY (always found under the DI clips tab for gear that has one), you can play our guitar and effects through your amp. Simply use an unbalanced cable that terminates with an 1/8th inch jack on one end and a 1/4 inch jack on the other. Connect the 1/8th jack to the output of your mobile device or computer and the 1/4 inch jack into the front of your amp. Start off with your amp volume at zero and your mobile device (or computer) volume all the way up to ensure you hit the front end of the amp with enough signal, and then gradually increase the volume of the clean channel on your amp until you reach a level that is not capable of causing damage to your ears or equipment. GearTunes accepts no liability for the use, abuse or misuse of these clips, and playing them into your amp is done exclusively at your own risk.

I am tremendously excited about being able to share GearTunes DI Clips with you as you journey on your quest to find right gear for the music you play! Cheers ~ Doug:)
