It won't happen.
That being said, my band owns three
I will be collecting them over the course of our career.
You know it is so
tempting for me to go grab the black R.30C which is still sitting next to an orange one in a shop near me. Price is the same as I paid for mine and I've always liked black Oranges. I keep wishing they'd sell it and take the temptation away. I really don't need it but the temptation is huge!
Should Orange reissue the amp? Probably not - not right now anyway. (How I'm voting then.) They'll have all the sales facts and figures and will have decided that things were tailing off and they could make more sales with different new designs. It'll have been a purely business decision and probably the right one.
Will they eventually
reissue it though? Wouldn't surprise me at all in a few years time. I truly believe the R.30 was the best of all the modern Orange designs in terms of all round balance. With its beefy 30W output section, great 'Dirty' channel (anything from shimmering clean to as dirty as most will ever need), and the simplest possible low gain 'Natural' channel (which you can do what you want with from adding nothing to any pedals you care to try) they came up with a bare bones tone monster. Exactly zero frills, but none were needed.
I've always loved the Natural channel every bit as much as the Dirty one. With EQ you can always change the tonality - dramatically if needed. (I've taken to plugging my parametric EQ into the Natural channel get two different core sounds, but a good graphic would work fine there too.) With a simple volume boost you can get louder cleans before distortion. (For those who find it too quiet as is this solution does work as the channel is so low gain that there is TONS of preamp headroom!) And with drive or distortion pedals you can dial your own grit to taste at any volume.
It is a very well rounded totally usable amp with two channels which work brilliantly
together, and now has such a good reputation with users that 'classic Orange' status is a sure fire certainty. That is why I think they may well eventually reissue it, but probably not too soon.
