Re: NAD....

Finally played the 140 last night... very interesting. pre-amp behaves far more like the AD50 than the AD15/30.... which are both FAR more compressed.... which actually means that the EL84 power section in the 15/30 are compressing/distorting anywhere above "3" on the knob. but yes, it's absolutely ...

Re: What happens if your amp goes down mid-gig.....

That's why I have a backup mantra. I tend to acquire gear in twos. Two AD30TC's; two OR80's; two Marshall JTM-45's, many backup Teles, six Strats, three Duesenberg's, etc. Only thing I don't have a backup for is my G-System, but I've been considering it... Billy, I don't think that's a Mantra... I ...

NAD....

well, I sold my OR15 and PPC112, because meh. and i funneled those funds (plus a few other Benjis) into this gorgeous beast... Tom @ Hoffnine Cabs in the UK restored the shell and sent it over in absolutely bomb-proof packing... the packing materials alone are nuts! Huge A+++ for them. https://i.ibb...

Re: Or15 noisy gain pot

Any valve/tube issue that Orange has, EVERY maker will have. the tube manufacturers are going to drive that through their QC and their build process. Of the 6 Orange tube amps I've had (still have 5 of them!) the only two that have had ANY issues are the two that have been used and banged around the...

Importing a UK AD140 to the states... power conversion?

I know that in theory, it's just a fuse swap and set the switch to 120V, but has anyone has any issues with bringing a Euro/UK spec AD-series amp to the US?

Re: I need a fuzz..... (TV50/AD30) HELP!

Scored a used Fur Coat locally for (substantial savings over Reverb $$$). The AD30 is in the shop, so dunno how that's going to work out yet, but it definitely gets along with AD50!

I'm learning it still, but I dig it so far.

Re: Kongpressor before or after Two Stroke

This is mine:

Fur Coat > (tuner) > Kong > two-stroke

works great that way.
