Thunder 30 Amplifier Bucks Trend, Goes Orange—Loudly

Most amplifiers are black. Inconspicuous. But not the Thunder 30. Its designers saw the legions of muted amplifiers on the market today and went orange in a big way. As for the amp itself, it may be just as loud.

Musically inclined folks will appreciate the amp's four EL84 class A 30 watt-pumpin' power valves. Completely new to the Thunder 30 line are a twin channel setup and an FX loop. Further customisation is available, as you shredders out there can opt for head alone or front loaded 1x12. That's all Greek to me, but you musicians out there can get hot and bothered, or bored, at your leisure.

Unsurprisingly, a company called Orange Amplifiers deals primarily in orange amplifiers, and has since about 1968. This new model aside, the rest of their line is, yes, very orange. [Orange Amplifiers via CrunchGear]
