Built-in cooler? Now that would be genius!

Orange posted it on their Instagram today and there was an interesting comment suggesting it was designed from the ground up in the US by a guy named Jon Bailey, not Ade Emsley.

It was indeed designed by Orange USA's Tech Manager, Jon Bailey. He too is a bit of a wizard when it comes to amp design. I can't say much about the amp, but I can tell you that it's VERY non-traditional for Orange. It's more akin to what would happen if an Orange and a Fender Deluxe mated.

Also, good to see everybody still posting! I've been focusing a lot of time on Orange social media, USA marketing, and AR so I haven't checked in here in a while. Glad to see you guys are still solidly self-regulating haha!
