I think they should make a Ke$ha endorsed Thunderverb 200.

I guess we had better get used to some new artists picking out some fancy new tube amps too. I was watching the Disney channel the other night (hey, I have to, I'm a Dad...) with my little girl and I got a chuckle as one of their artists videos was on and the backing guys (high school aged kids) had Orange amps. Two half stacks, mind you - They get whatever they want when they pull in that big of an audience. I can here it now, "No way dude we want Orange stacks, two of 'em!"

It was Demi Lovato. Here is the painful video if you want to see it...

actually that is not a bad idea. Orange could have people on the forums or anywhere for that matter, send in pics of themselves on stage, or in the studio with their Orange amps. And run them on their web page, giving Orange a better relationship with the people that actually play their amps everyday and pay top dollar to have them, and it shows that they listen to the artists that support them. Plus it would also be nice to see a bunch of real world guitar heroes get some recognition for the work they do, just to be able to purchase one of the best amps on the planet.

While I agree with you, and that many people might be like, man if i buy and Orange Amp I might just end up on their web page; in all reality it's not going to happen.

Why? Because Orange's webspace cost's money. Orange wants that space to pay for itself. They aren't about to show the small guys, because then they are paying for advertising, instead of getting paid on the reputation of the artists that use them.

Isn't the solution kinda obvious? Why do you need to get to the Forum through the Orange Amps homepage when you can just bookmark the Forum directly? You won't have to see Madonna rockin' those juicy (albeit a bit saggy) Oranges ever again if you just fix your bookmark.

Haven't we all asked this question? Can't tell on the recent video, so what were you playing through?

Yes our web space costs money (everyone's does), but we don't want the space to pay for itself. The reason we have the endorsers on the site is because we are proud that so many well known people use our products. I have no problem looking into this for our site, however don't expect it soon, there is a lot of work being done to our site behind the scenes.

I wasn't suggesting that anything was free. Rather that they can afford anything they want. They demand Orange because they can!

Putting pictures of Forum members with their gear (Teddy will need a wide-angle lens to fit all of his Orange amps in the picture) is brilliant idea. It would show that Oranges are for the regular working musician, not just the stars. Save your bucks, get a great amp, sound terrific, and have your picture on the website.

Ok I spoke to soon. I think it really is a great idea though, Imran. There is a lot of good music happening with these guys! And what other manufacturer does something like that? Orange would stand out once again!

Even if the background of the home page was made up of pictures of regular everyday Orange amp users, and still have the Endorsed artists in the flash videos. Something like a background collage.
