That said, I'd love a three channel Orange. One clean channel w/ EQ, second rhythm channel dirtier w/ EQ, and a solo channel. With a overall master volume that brings all three channels up and down proportionally. Maybe a built-in speaker emulator/ attenuator. No effects loop or reverb...
Never thought of that, it would have the potential to be a cool and very versatile amp.

Oh yes it would be cool.......but probably very very pricey. So I would not want to see this amp because I would have to add another Orange to my list that I would love to own but could probably never afford. :(

Still loving my Tiny Terror, and I think the OR15 will hit all my buttons for what I'd ever need, ampwise. So, I guess if I had to say something, I'd say a diagonal or vertical 2x12 cabinet, that'd be something I'd buy for sure. :D

Bang on jeepocaster. Vertical cabs give a much better sound spread across the audience than 2x2 format cabs.

Orange, seriously, vertical 2x12 cabs, both for guitar and for bass!!!

A 30watt hardwired Tiny Terror.

Possibly with an effects loop... switchable maybe.

You're probably right but i have an EL34 OR120 an EL34 Marshall JMP50 and my rack is EL34 powered...
So I guess its for my own selfish reasons I'd like them to build one :D

I could just about justify it to myself getting a compact EL84 powered amp on top of all that. Plus I have my mesa combo still :)

also, Orange should make slant cabs and 212 diagonal cabs with removable back panel for open or closed back cab like Matamp makes, also custom colors and faceplates so I can get a GREEN by Orange :)

those matamp 212 cabs are killer, removable/repositional back panel and angled and ...

they are pretty killer tho, I see one for $700 about, on teh bay:

looks pretty awesome for all teh versatility ... can convert from open back to closed back easily with two types of porting variations and is angled ;)

Third that! It would be exactly what I need. Matamp quoted me £629 for one of their diagonal 2x12s in the UK, which is obscene.
