Abrand new amp from Orange, The Marcus King MK Ultra is a 30-watt, all-valve head, equipped with two 12AX7 preamp valves, and a pair of 6L6s in the output. Controls are limited to
Volume, Sing (treble) and Deep (bass), with Orange saying it’s designed to work with your guitar and pedals to help shape the tone rather than “sit on top of it”. As blues-rock maestro Marcus says: “For me to have a signature amp with Orange is just like a childhood dream that’s come true. It’s a uniquely crafted American amplifier by a British company for a uniquely crafted American man.” It’s out now for £2,400.
