Slipknot and Stone Sour guitarist Jim Root will be launching a signature amplifier at this year's NAMM conference in Los Angeles on January 21. The Signature #4 Jim Root Terror Head is modelled after the dirty channel on the same amp that Root plays in the studio and on the road: the Orange Rockerverb 100. This all-tube, 15-watt amp features a full 3-band EQ, allowing players to dial in vintage rock, blues or anything else, as well as a tube-driven FX loop which will allow the user to take the tone in any direction they want.
The new Signature #4 Jim Root PPC212 cab has been developed alongside the head to provide Jim's full tone. The cab is finished in black vinyl with a specially developed black version of the Orange basket grill cloth and proudly features the signature #4 plate on the front. With a closed back design, the cab has a tight bottom end and delivers Jim's signature Orange tone.
Said Root of the name on the signature head, "With this amp, simply giving it the number I use in Slipknot seemed logical. I've not been to apt to splash either band logo or artwork all over things, but this will be the beginning of the end of that… maybe." The rear of the amp features both the Slipknot and Stone Sour logos.
* Volume, Gain, Bass, Mid and Treble Controls

Jim Root will be personally launching his signature #4 products on the Orange Booth #4890 Hall C at NAMM at 2 PM on Saturday, January 21.
