What Haworth Guitars say:
The Orange CS50 Custom Shop 50 Amplifier is an awesome tube guitar amp head by Orange.
At Haworth Guitars, we love this Orange Custom Shop 50 Amp's bright-sounding EL34 power-amp tubes with 12AX7 pre-amp tubes, plus the incredibly smooth overdrive tones and the 30 watts Class A to 50 watts Class A/B switching options.
What Orange says:
Our Custom Shop Series represents over forty years of craftsmanship, creating some of the world’s very finest amps in limited numbers. Combining a beautifully straightforward front panel, elegant construction and exquisite Blues-Rock tones, the Custom Shop 50 is the quintessential ‘player’s’ amp. Meticulously hand wired using premium grade components and heavy gauge copper wire, the internals is nothing short of a work of art. Sonically, this single channel gem caters to those guitarists pursuing pure and unadulterated tonal refinement. Switching from 30 Watts Class A or 50 Watts Class A/B output alters the amp’s feel and response, with a wonderfully sensitive chime in Class A mode. In the Class A/B setting, the mids open up, for a warmer, full-bodied kick. The EQ section is highly responsive, and interacts brilliantly with the Gain control, going from round and smooth, to bold and snarly. Our unique HF Drive control allows for fine-tuning of the upper harmonics. As the HF Drive reaches 3 o’clock on the dial, it adds negative feedback at the output stage for a rich, thick overdrive which sails through any mix. A footswitchable EQ lift provides an awe-inspiring canvas for lead work, adding fullness and singing sustain. For classic British tone, it doesn’t get any better than the Custom Shop 50.
