However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Switchable Output Options

This portable combo amp offers a versatile choice of three outputs including 50 watts class A/B and 30 watts class A, allowing you to tailor the amp to the situation. This is ideal for times where extra power is needed, or scaled down for smaller performances. The 30 Watt mode provides you with a classic jangle, chime and clarity that many guitarists look for. At the flick of a switch, you can easily access the 50 Watt mode, which delivers an iconic British rock tone. Controlling both modes is easy, with the range of highly responsive EQ controls including Gain, Bass, Middle, Treble, HF Drive and Master Volume.

HF Drive Control

In addition to the standard control options, the Orange Custom Shop 50 also features HF Drive control. This unique setting allows you to fine tune the upper harmonics, giving you a distinctive tone. When turning the dial to the 3 o’clock position, it adds negative feedback at the output stage for a rich, thick overdrive which sails through any mix.

Classic Orange Styling

The Custom Shop 50 Guitar Amp Head is finished in Orange's legendary appearance dating back to 1968, including basket weave vinyl, signature picture frame edging, signature 'picture frame' edging and iconic hieroglyphs on the control panel. Made from solid 18mm plywood, this retro-looking amp head is solid, rugged and durable. Reinforced corners also add to the sturdy construction, and ensure that the internal components are protected. The additional built in carry handle means this compact amp head can be easily transported between performances.

A Brief History

Founded in 1968, Orange has been a pioneering force in the guitar amplification industry and is popular across the world. Even today, Orange still continue to maintain their high prestige and push back the boundaries of conventional valve amplifier design. Their superb craftsmanship and quality control has allowed Orange amps to stand the test of time, giving their owners as much pleasure now, as the day they were bought. Their quality ensures a premium product and a guarantee that the customer is investing in a worthwhile product. Each Orange amplifier is put through many rigorous test procedures before leaving the factory, which maintains the level of excellence.
