The Orange Vintage Pedals have been reissued: distortion, Phaser and sustain. Each pedal is based on the original ’70s orange-coloured, oversized stompboxes, just with a few added modern-day tweaks.

Orange Amplification has reissued the original ’70s Vintage Pedals with the distortion, Phaser and sustain all back in their orange-coloured cases and black fonts. With the distortion and sustain they also have that unique lower case naming, whereas the Phaser has a regular capital letter.

The company put out a call back in 2020 for vintage originals, as they were working on this reissued range and now they are finally here.

Vintage ’70s-inspired stomboxes

These modern-day reissues feature LEDs and DC inputs, unlike the original battery-powered 1970s originals.

Orange sustain

The Orange sustain adds a clean(ish) sustain to your guitar signal. Orange describes the effect as  “smooths and regulates guitar sounds, acting like an overdrive for clean tones with added chime and warmth.” It adds volume when required and could be used as a clean boost, with a touch of sparkle.

MSRP – GBP 199

Orange distortion

Next up is the Orange distortion and this one is a new design and a different circuit from the original. It replaces the original pedal’s back-to-back diode design with an amp circuit and tone stack that has a user-adjustable treble. It gives a nice saturated dirt tone, perfect for screaming ’70s-inspired solos, etc

This has a low-impedance buffered bypass switching, so your guitar tone will stay intact.

Orange Phaser

Finally, there is the Orange Phaser and this pedal gives you a nice psychedelic swirl. It is a one-knob design (some of the best phasers in the world also follow this simple formula) based around a four-stage circuit. Certainly, a nice easy pedal to use and with its own unique take on the classic phaser tone.

This modern recreation of the original also features a lower noise floor. The original ’70s model named Phazer was always a noisy pedal whenever I used one, so this is a nice modern update.

Verdict

They aren’t cheap at £199 each, but they certainly have those vintage ’70s tones. I like the modern updates, like status LEDs and the ability to run from a power supply.
