2004 – ROCKER 30 HEAD & COMBO
Launched as the Rocker 30 Combo, this Class A twin channel amplifier’s design focus is that of versatile simplicity. This is largely achieved by the single stage clean channel, which produces various shades of clean tones just by turning up the natural volume control. The head was introduced six months after the single 12” combo which replaced the discontinued AD15.
Technical Director, Adrian Emsley, explains the changes made to the Rocker 30’s dimensions and cosmetics:
“The first Rocker 30s were about one inch shorter and had the small logo. These were made in the UK and were also assembled from kits in the USA with Mercury magnetic transformers. We then decided to make them exactly the same length as the standard Orange head. These longer Rocker 30s feature the large badge and crest.”
