The Orange Amplification Company put out a press release in ca. August 1971 that Jimmy Page was proud to endorse Orange amplifiers and would feature them in the next Led Zeppelin tour. Page began using them on August 7, 1971, in Montreux, Switzerland. John Paul Jones also used one Orange OR200 Amplifier for keyboard duties on random dates in the 1971 US Tour.

Page had used them for the Sonic Wave Theremin.

On May 21, 2009, a sole bidder on eBay purchased one of the Orange OR200 Amplifiers, Serial #OR264, for $30,000. The amp had been sitting in a shed for years before it was found and had looked like a rat had made a nest in it. The person that found it had contacted Cliff Cooper at Orange Amplification Company in London, England who confirmed that it had belonged to Jimmy Page. It originally had been a slave unit and was modded to a main unit. He had kept the amp for about a year before selling it. The amp was sold on eBay by the Rutherford Music Exchange in Rutherford, NJ to an undisclosed buyer.
