Brand: Orange

Celebrating its 20th Anniversary in 2024, the Rockerverb Series demonstrates better than anything else that a workhorse amp can be a master of all trades. The original Rockerverb was actually our first ever ‘high gain’ amplifier, with a unique voice that quickly became a firm favourite amongst the heavy crowd. However, its supreme versatility and dependability meant the series has been a mainstay for touring artists and session aces, both on the road and in the studio.

Orange Rockerverb 50H MKIII Valve Guitar Head

The Orange Rockerverb 50H MKIII head combines over a decade of user feedback with numerous improvements to the design. In a first for the Rockerverb Series, the MKIIIs include selectable output power options to manipulate headroom and volume. This 50-Watt version switches down to 25W in half power mode, whilst the mains transformers have also been upgraded for better low-end response and articulation. The MKIII also features the same footswitchable attenuator that has been so popular with users of our Thunderverb and Dual Dark Series amps.

Orange have revoiced the clean channel on the Rockerverb 50H MKIIIs for a more ‘chimey’ response. The clean side now has even greater headroom than previous models, whilst still retaining the warmth and vintage character of a non-master volume design. Also, the valve driven spring reverb now has a more extensive range with a brighter trail. Add to this a host of other hidden refinements and you have the finest sounding and most feature-laden Rockerverb to date.

Celebrating its 10th Anniversary in 2014, the Rockerverb Series demonstrates better than anything else that a workhorse amp can be a master of all trades. The original Rockerverb was actually our first ever ‘high gain’ amplifier, with a unique voice that quickly became a firm favourite amongst the heavy crowd. However, its supreme versatility and dependability meant the series has been a mainstay for touring artists and session aces, both on the road and in the studio.

FEATURES:
HIGHLY VERSATILE TWIN-CHANNEL DESIGN

The original Rockerverb gained a cult following on account of its iconic high-gain tones. The Mk IIIs of course continue this tradition, but these amps are immensely flexible. The Dirty channel goes anywhere from clean to crunch to the very heaviest modern saturation, and always maintains outstanding clarity. The non-master-volume Clean channel has been re-engineered to take on a more sparkly and crisp nature but with greater control through a revoiced two-band EQ section. The Mk IIIs have even greater headroom and volume in full-power mode should you need it, but this can now be manipulated with the amp’s output power and Attenuator controls.

FOOTSWITCHABLE VALVE-DRIVEN SPRING REVERB

Driven by an ECC83/12AT7 valve and a custom transformer, the spring-reverb circuit in the Mk III has undergone significant upgrades. Brighter and more controllable than its predecessor, this lush spring-reverb circuit covers everything from “air” to full-on surf.

FOOTSWITCHABLE ATTENUATOR CONTROL

Get cranked amp tones at “conversation volumes”! The Attenuator circuit is located after the master volume controls and determines when and how the amp distorts after the preamp stage. This means the overall volume level can be reduced, whilst keeping control over the entire amp’s clipping characteristics. Unlike a loadbox, this design ensures the all-important relationship between the output transformer and the speaker remains intact. So, even at very low volumes, the amp remains springy and responsive. Turning the Attenuator control clockwise reduces the overall output level (i.e. increases the attenuation). This can even be remotely defeated via a footswitch for a volume boost on either channel for lead lines.

SWITCHABLE OUTPUT POWER

Switching the amp’s output power allows for more control over the headroom and breakup from the output valves. Reduce the output for greater output valve clipping and saturation at lower volume levels. The Rockerverb 50 Mk III features a “half-power” mode that drops the plate voltage on the output valves. This serves to reduce the output power to a very useable 25 watts.

VALVE-BUFFERED EFFECTS LOOP

The highly transparent effects loop is buffered by a single ECC81/12AT7, so is perfect for the pedal-loving purist. This loop ensures an all-valve signal path from input to output.
