Biffy Clyro band signed OR50 Orange Amp in Ebay auction

A Mike Vennart OR50 Orange Amp, signed by the members of Biffy Clyro, is up for auction on Ebay with the proceeds for Cancer Research, the charity chosen by Orange fans.

Mike Vennart told MetalTalk: “This was my amp. I toured it for about four years. It’s signed by Simon Neil, James Johnston and Ben Johnston of Biffy Clyro, and myself. It’s an absolute classic workhorse beast of an amp. Never let me down. Goddammit, I miss it!!”

The versatile OR50 featured a traditional single channel with a three-stage gain section and HF Drive control. Its wide range of vintage tones and that classic British Crunch pay homage to the Orange amps that helped define the seventies’ music.

Biffy Clyro most recent album was 2020’s ‘Celebration Of Endings’ with which they were planning to tour prior to lockdown. The band told us they hope to tour in October 2021, once again filling venues with bone-crunching riffs and rousing choruses. They are scheduled to headline the 2022 Download festival.
