If you want to get specific his is an OD120M which is even more expensive now.

They're probably the closest thing to an old OR120 as far as tone goes (way more gain available on the R30). I love these amps. I just sold mine, which was probably really dumb, but oh well.
If you start missing yours you should check out the new Rocker 32, i'm glad that Orange is bringing these back. I'm hoping i'll get a chance to play with one later this year but from what i've heard they're very much in the same vein as the old Rocker 30.
