From what I understand about the rockerverb amps, 1 has a better clean, 2 made improvements to the drive channel at expense of the clean, and the 3 brought the good clean back but kept the improved gain. GOSH. Sell both and get a TC-100 and Fractal FX8. They have a bit of everything and an orange with reverb is pretty special! I'm an orange endorsed artist, the only reason I point that out is to tell you I've tried pretty much them all a lot. Not for me. But on to my question: which make of the RV100 should I get? Recently, I tried out a used MK II with anticipation. Or would you recommend I try the new ORs? Ok, Orange fans, I have few quick questions for you. Published on Sep 11, 2015 Guitar Center's Product Spotlight provides a comprehensive overview of the Orange Rockerverb 100 MKIII 100 Watt Tube Head. The Clean Channel delivers a super rich clean tone with beautiful harmonic overtones. Those amps seem to really fit the music you'r into. I am the only guitarist in a three piece band. I need 2 channels, a bunch of headroom and a very bassy amp and love the warm Orange distortion (mids!). Also, I can get the MK1 for like 850 EUR used and the MKIII new for 2.000 EUR. I was also looking at the Thunderverb 200 and the TH100, but the first doesn't have a real clean and I didn't like the second channel too much and the TH sounded like a cheaper RV (is that just me?). I have checked the MKII with Orange’s VT1000 and the preamp is loaded with ‘high gain’ tubes, I have not had a chance to test the MKIII as of yet. If I could only have one orange amp, it would be a rockerverb. That said, I second his opinion. Not really, the Rockerverb sounds much better. Don't regret it one bit. Then, with the TH30, I am not totally convinced I like the dirty channel, but I am really impressed with the cleans. Both amps are loaded with Orange’s chosen PM tubes, none of my own. I have an MKII but would trade for a MKIII if it came up. Personally I would go with an Orange out of those two choices. It is a non-master channel, much like vintage Orange amps, and when cranked the power section breaks up faster, delivering the most classic British crunch imaginable. Making its debut at this year's Frankfurt Musikmesse, Orange's new Rockerverb MKIII range builds on its popular two-channel format, adding some significant improvements to the package. Saving money ain't a bad thing - unless it's a bad investment. Would you be worried about the high impedance effects loop?

Sell the rockerverb, buy a CR120, pocket the difference or buy a new guitar with it. The Rockerverb 100 MKII head utilises a two stage clean channel with a four stage dirty channel. The Gear Page is the leading online community and marketplace for guitars, amps, pedals, effects and associated gear. I gig with an 18 watt amp and it's more than loud enough.

Both are really awesome amps, and if it were me I'd probably prefer the TC, but for what you're playing I'd give the Orange a slight edge. I'd sell it, buy TWO CR120 heads and a new Reverend Sensei and call it good. The Clean Channel delivers a super rich clean tone with beautiful harmonic overtones. Turn it up to 11. Ditched it for a Dual Rectifier. Nov 2, 2018 #1 Ever since the MKiii came out I wanted to directly compare one with my current MKii. You must log in or register to reply here. I could not find some great information on the advantages and disadvantages of the different builts,but understood there are fairly large differences. In a first for the Rockerverb Series, the MKIIIs include selectable output power options to manipulate headroom and volume, switching down to 70, 50 or 30W.
