Orange Amplification has announced its limited-edition Marcus King MK Ultra signature amp . Created in conjunction with Grammy Award-nominated singer – songwriter Marcus King , the MK Ultra is Orange ’ s first-ever amplifier designed with Orange USA and built in the U . S .
Using components including American-made custom Heyboer transformers , the handwired 30W all-valve guitar amplifier brings together classic American and British tonal sensibilities . The MK Ultra features tuned input circuitry that responds to different volumes and tone settings on the guitar . This is driven by a pair of 12AX7 preamp valves feeding into a power amp section consisting of two 6L6GC power valves that are cathode-biased . This choice of output valves is a first for Orange , bringing out added harmonics and touch sensitivity .
