The Orange Amplification Dual Dark Series amps are Orange's highest-gain amplifiers yet. With two independent channels that each feature four stages of gain, the Dual Dark heads are as versatile as they are aggressive. Equipped with independent Volume and Gain controls, each channel can take you anywhere from crystal clean to insane, over-the-top distortion and everything in between. Although the Dual Dark Series have been designed with the metal player in mind, these amps offer incredible sonic flexibility.

The voicing for Channel A has been completely revamped, offering a fat, powerful EQ with strong open mids and a tight response. Taking its roots from Orange's beloved Dark Terror, Channel B provides a lightning fast attack that's ideal for those heavy percussive down-tuned riffs. Channel B also sports the unique intuitive Shape control that was originally seen on Orange's famed Thunderverb Series. When turned all the way down, the Shape control tailors your sound for full, potent midrange. When cranked all the way up, the Shape control gives you all bass and treble with scooped mids.

The proprietary output transformer design employed on the Dual Dark 50 gives this amp its tight, focused low-end response and its exceptional string-to-string clarity, even when the volume is cranked all the way up. Despite its lower wattage, the Dual Dark 50 dishes out killer tone with incredible tube-driven power. Featuring switchable output power, the wattage of the Dual Dark 50 can be cut down to 25 Watts so that it breaks up and distorts at lower volume levels.

The footswitchable attenuator control allows the Dual Dark 50 to maintain its output clipping characteristics when the overall  volume is lowered. The Attenuator circuit determines when and how the amp distorts post preamp stage. Orange's design ensures that the relationship between the speaker and the output transformer is maintained, giving this amp a springy and responsive tone even at extremely low volume levels.
