What can we expect from Orange this year?
Any new heads?
Custom Shop amps are a thing of the past, correct?

Has Orange "officially" stopped making the Custom Shop models, AD50 & Retro 50?

Another reason I'd rather not trust shipping it, is because the used Marshall I just received is in the shop, very possibly damaged by being dropped during shipping. I have no desire to gamble on a Custom Shop Orange. It's far too valuable. If it's in the store, it's mine. Game over. It's coming hom...

I think I'd rather drive to Humbucker Music & get it than chance shipping it. They're a day away but it's *more* than worth it.

There seem to be issues with build quality manifesting in reverb/buzz/hum problems from what I've read here.

I hope so. What I'm reading here about the Rockerverb models is disturbing. I was interested in the Rockerverb 100 but not any longer. For the $$, I'd prefer the C.S. model I think.

Anyone here own a Custom Shop Retro 50 or AD 50? If so, where was it purchased? With prices of everything going through the roof these days, I'm very near "pulling the trigger" on a Custom Shop Orange if I can find one in stock in the U.S. How's the build quality of these C.S. Orange amps? Thanks in...

Why offer it for sell if it can't be delivered any more quickly than two years?

Don't know how to edit my previous post so I'm posting this as a supplement.
You can see a cab that looks like this one here at the Orange website. It's a bass cab loaded with 4x10s. If I were a betting man, I'd bet that's what this really is.

Definitely *not* a Gibson reissue cab. It's a 70s model cab but it looks like a bass cab. Don't buy it without seeing a pic of the back of those "Celestion" speakers. I've never, ever seen a Celestion with a voice coil like that. JBL, Altec, PV, Utah, Radio Shack, yes; Celestion, no. I could be wron...

Ditto! Great sounding amp. I passed on a chance to cop an 80/watt Overdrive re-issue several years ago & of course have regretted it very much. The day I demoed that amp I spent more time with it than any Marshall I played that day. I thought it'd be there when I went back for another visit. It was ...

Any news would be welcome, even if it's only about one amp. With the class A amps & now the point-to-point wired "custom shop" models, it doesn't look good for me. I have no need of a 140-watt class A behemoth & the custom shop amps are very expensive. Will there be no more OVERDRIVE or OTR models? ...

Who builds the point-to-point hand-wired amps: Orange or MATAMP?
