Orange Rockerverb 100 MK3


Experience unparalleled sonic power with the Orange Rockerverb 100 MK3 guitar amp head, delivering unmatched tone and clarity for your performances.



Orange Amplifiers is a renowned British amp manufacturer known for their exceptional high-gain sound, durable build quality, and striking orange aesthetics. Their latest addition to the Rockerverb series, the Rockerverb 100 MK3, has lived up to the iconic brand’s reputation by offering guitarists a versatile and powerful all-tube amp head.

Design and Features

At first glance, the Orange Rockerverb 100 MK3 appears strikingly similar to its predecessor, the MK2. However, upon closer inspection, you’ll notice several significant improvements. The amp’s front panel features dual-channel control switches, a four-band EQ, a three-way mid-range frequency selector, and a built-in attenuator. There’s also a valve-driven effects loop, a transparent series effects loop, and a half-power mode to switch between 100 or 50-watt output.

The Rockerverb 100 MK3 comes in a sleek, almost all-black finish with orange accents on the control knobs and logos, a departure from the bright orange look of the previous MK2 model. The amp head measures 55cm x 29cm x 28cm and weighs a hefty 24kg, reflecting the amp’s all-tube circuitry and robust build construction.

Sound and Performance

The Orange Rockerverb 100 MK3 provides staggering tonal versatility, covering a range of genres from classic rock to heavy metal. The amp’s dual-channel functionality allows you to switch between a sparkling clean tone and an overdriven crunch, with a footswitch or front panel control.

The Rockerverb 100 MK3 boasts six ECC83 preamp tubes and four EL34 power tubes, generating a rich harmonic content with a tight low-end response. The clean channel preserves the guitar’s natural tonal characteristics with a smooth, glassy sound accentuated by the amp’s unique valve-driven spring reverb. The gain channel, on the other hand, delivers a high-gain, tight response that cuts through the mix with ease.

The Rockerverb 100 MK3’s EQ section offers plenty of tone-shaping options, allowing you to fine-tune your sound to match your playing style. The three-way mid-range frequency selector lets you choose between a scooped, mid-rich, or mid-cut sound, making it an excellent tool for modern metal and contemporary rock players.

The built-in attenuator provides the option to push the amp hard without rattling walls or irritating neighbors. The attenuation knob on the rear panel allows you to adjust the output wattage at any level between 0 to 100 watts, making the amplifier suitable for both stage and studio use.

Final Verdict

The Orange Rockerverb 100 MK3 is a formidable amp head considered among the best in the market today. Its versatile tone, extensive feature set, and reliable build quality make it an excellent choice for guitarists of all genres who desire a high-quality, all-tube amplifier. With the added bonus of the attenuator, the MK3 continues to provide the monstrous tonal power of the Rockerverb series while being versatile in playing options. Aspiring rockers and metalheads must give the Orange Rockerverb 100 MK3 a try.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What are the steps to correctly connect my Orange Rockerverb 100 MK3 to a guitar and speaker cabinet, considering all necessary cables, power supply, and safety measures?

To correctly connect your Orange Rockerverb 100 MK3 to a guitar and speaker cabinet, follow these steps:

1. Make sure the amplifier is turned off before connecting any cables.
2. Connect the instrument cable from your guitar's output jack to the 'INPUT' jack on the front of the Rockerveb 100 MK3. The instrument cable should be a standard straight-to-straight or right-angle-to-right-angle cable, depending on the shape and size of your guitar's output jack and the amplifier's input jack.
3. Connect the power cable from the rear panel of the Rockerveb 100 MK3 to a suitable power source. Use the supplied IEC cable with a kettle-style (IEC) connector, plugging it into a wall outlet or surge protector. Do not use an extension cord, as this could cause electrical hazards and damage your equipment.
4. Plug in speaker cables from the amplifier's speaker outputs to the appropriate input(s) on your speaker cabinet. If you have multiple speakers, connect them according to the instructions provided by the manufacturer of your speaker cabinet. The number of speaker outputs available on the Rockerveb 100 MK3 varies depending on the specific model and configuration.
5. Turn on the amplifier by pressing the power switch located on the top-right corner of the amp.
6. Adjust the volume control on your guitar, as well as any other settings you desire, such as tone controls or gain levels, before playing through the amplifier.
7. Place the Rockerveb 100 MK3 on a sturdy surface away from heat sources, water, and direct sunlight to avoid potential damage and ensure optimal performance.
8. Always follow safety precautions when using electrical equipment, including unplugging the power source before making any connections or adjustments and keeping cables neatly organized and away from heat sources.

What are the primary differences between the Orange Rockerverb 100 MkIII and its predecessor, the MkII, in terms of technical specifications and functionality?

The Orange Rockerverb 100 MkIII is a significant upgrade from its predecessor, the MkII. Here are some of the primary differences between the two models:
1. Tube Complement: The MkIII features an upgraded tube complement with six ECC83 preamp tubes and four EL34 power amp tubes. This provides a more dynamic and responsive tone compared to the MkII's five 12AX7 preamp tubes and four EL34 power amp tubes. Preamp Section: The MkIII features an upgraded preamp section with additional gain stages, providing a wider range of tonal possibilities. This allows for a tighter low-end response and increased headroom.

The MkII only had a single spring reverb type. EQ Section: The MkIII features a new 3-band EQ section with separate bass and treble controls, as well as a mid-shift switch that allows you to select between two different midrange frequencies. This provides greater control over the tone of your amplifier.

Effects Loop: The MkIII features a new effects loop that can be switched between series and parallel modes using the onboard controls or via MIDI. This provides greater flexibility when using external effects pedals. MIDI Capability: The MkIII is equipped with a built-in MIDI interface, allowing you to control various aspects of the amplifier remotely using a MIDI controller. The MkII did not have this feature. Build Quality: The MkIII features an upgraded build quality with a more rugged chassis and improved component selection. This provides greater durability and reliability for touring musicians. Overall, the Orange Rockerverb 100 MkIII is a significant upgrade from its predecessor, offering improved tone, greater flexibility, and enhanced functionality.
