So the OR50 came in yesterday. I got to spend about an hour with it through an oversized Mesa 4x12 with v30 and my Reverend Sensei RA. So far............... it's completely amazing. For me it's the sound I was looking for out of my Rockerverb but always struggled to get. I have seen a lot of post about how it doesn't really do modern gain; and that seems crazy to me. I couldn't imagine wanting more distortion than what it has already. I am very happy with it at this point!

Congrats! OR50 is awesome. I have said a few times if I had the need I'd get a 2nd one - 1 set clean and the other Dirty

I think you will find it takes pedals very well too. I set mine at edge of break up for rhythm with the guitar full up. Backing off the guitar volume cleans it up nicely.
An EP boost in front for solos is marvelous! I've even used my old Rat pedal with good results.

Congrats! It really is an amazing amp. And it's great with pedals. Now it's time to look for a '100 as well... :mrgreen:

I've been pretty close on occasion to getting one, but it hasn't turned out that way yet.
