The Orchestrator amp is based on a 1950′s style Mullard push-pull circuit with slight modifications using vintage Germanium transistors …. AC125 and AC126 on the front end and two AC128′s on the output side. It also features both driver and output transformers that mimic the sound we are familiar with. The speaker box contains a custom made Weber 6.5″ 4 ohm twin cone driver speaker. The amp is powered by a standard size 9 volt battery. Its power output is approx 1 watt. We are not suppose to say it but it’s a clone of the amp that was used by that famous 70s band, We Will We Will Rock You !! Sing IT ! The Orchestrator amp

    Hey…just wanted to share an email I got the other day from one of out Orchestrator users…..

    Just thought you may be interested in a comment that the engineer said about the frequency response of the Orchestrator – he usually (always) has to remove certain bothersome frequencies (with graphic eg or parametric or both – not sure) from amps/instruments which clutter and interfere with everything when they accumulate in multi track recording. Anyway, the “Orchy” has no troublesome frequencies anywhere ! – none, zero, ziltch – so (as you would expect from the sound alone) all of the amp’s energy is focussed right where it should be, in the musical frequency band exactly where you’d want it !! This is probably another reason why Brian May’s engineer(s) always preferred working with the Deacy rather than an AC30 flat out.

    I’ve had the Orchestrator for about a year now and it rocks! Very reliable, easy to lug around. It runs on a battery, so you can take it on a picnic and it will be loud enough for an impromptu concert. While this amp was originally conceived for recording multi-part harmonies, I use it a lot as a plug’n'play practice amp. I love the natural tones it produces even without being driven by a treble booster. Very bluesy and very responsive to nuances in note articulation. Depending on how you set the volume on your guitar, you can get everything from a nearly clean sound to a dirty overdrive that’ll put a smile on your face. I particularly like the mellow drive from the amp, which allows me to produce sounds reminiscent of a muffled trumpet. Add a booster and your notes will sustain infinitely with a distinct, sweet quality. I brought this amp over to a friend who has a small recording studio and he was amazed at the power and versatility coming from this tiny thing. His comment to me was that every studio should have one. Well, I don’t know about studios, but I sure am glad I have one!
