Orange Amps teases a set of reissued pedals from the 1970s
Orange Amplification has teased a reissue of a trio of 1970s pedals, its Phazer, Sustain and Distortion units clad in its titular colour. It’s also called on any collectors to get in touch, as to put the pedals back together they’ll need some units to work from.

And the three enclosures are incredibly retro, with minimal controls and artwork. Notably, the top-mounted jacks are in the reverse order to the modern pedals we are used to nowadays. Orange has since manufactured a more modern line of pedals, and even unveiled the Terror Stamp, a pedal-sized amplifier that packs in signature Orange tones in a complete ‘board friendly unit.
