As we all know, when Madonna puts out a show it must be perfect from every aspect – the direction of the stage, the song list, the choreographies, the costumes and even the music gear! So when Monte Pittman was packing his Les Pauls for the “Hung Up Promo Tour”, he also ordered 4 custom made Orange amps (plus 2 for Madonna) in a fantastic sparkly pink tolex to match the disco vibe of Madonna’s album “Confessions on a dance floor”! See it in action!
But it was a whole other story when the “Confessions Tour” kicked off in Los Angeles on May of 2006! The “Orange” amps were dressed in white tolex! In addition to that, Marcus Brown’s keyboards were white, Steve Sidelnyk’s DW drums were white too and Monte Pittman loved New York in a white Gibson Les Paul custom! Check it out!
So with all these not only amazing but also gorgeous looking amps waiting to be plugged in, you’d think that Madonna wouldn’t go for something more for her latest tour! Although she and Monte used their sparkly pink Oranges at the “Hard Candy Promo Tour”, they got some new old-school black Oranges for the “Sticky & Sweet Tour”!
If you haven’t tried an Orange amp yet, then you should definitely pay a visit to your local guitar store and check them out! They are expensive, but a test drive is free and always fun :)
