Re: I think this band will get a lot of love here

I hadn't heard of them before this thread, but like them. I can see how some find them derivative, but after listening to 3-4 tunes, I'm already seeing more than just early Zep and Bad Company. Old school for sure, tho.

Re: Wow! This band rules - The Joy Formidable

Nice crescendo; took us from proper indie out to noisy bombast. I'd bet they're great live.

Re: Rocker 30 dirty channel + OD: I found one that doesn't s

Cool to hear about your experience with the Ecstasy. Black Arts stuff rocks with Oranges in my experience as well. Others that I've had great luck with are the Field Effects Manifold Drive, and the boosts from Lumpy's, the '73 and Brilliance, and from Diamond, the Boost EQ. I recorded myself going t...

Re: Orange spotting: Dead meadow

I dig them too. Tasteful stoner psych.

Maybe I'm getting old if I think 'tasteful' is a cool way to describe a rock band!...

thx for the interest! I'll try this weekend; I hope my humble home recording technique can capture what I'm hearing.

Re: Suggest an overdrive pedal for my TH30!

I finally got a chance to mess with an Ecstasy I received up last week. I am VERY impressed with its ability to mesh with my R.30's dirty channel, especially in 'open' mode.

Rocker 30 dirty channel + OD: I found one that doesn't suck!

The Wampler Ecstasy meshes VERY well with the dirty channel when set for edge or crunch. It's better than the Timmy. I just wraps around the R.30s crunch with more saturation and bite, but without losing articulation. I got lost for a few hours tonight using the P90 PRS. Evil goodness.

Re: Suggest an overdrive pedal for my TH30!

Not sure how much it translates, but I like a Timmy and a Lumpy's Brilliant Boost into the natural channel on my R.30, then use the dirty channel for higher gain stuff. Both of these are open in the mids while adding upper end grit and/or boost. My stomps that have more mids don't seem to get along ...

Re: Rocker 30 Natural Channel and pedals

IMO yes. With ODs and dirt that have nice EQ sections, you get plenty of control if needed, too.

Natural is cool because it's just a single preamp tube then all power tube flavor. Nice and direct. Your guitar and pedal's personalities are mainlined.

Rocker 30 + alnico = tasty

I got a few hours in today with the Celestion Gold (8ohm) in my R30 1x12. MAN the natural channel sounds great! The added warmth and compression of the alnico really works well for my needs. The edge tones were smoother as well. The most saturated tones were perhaps too smooth, as the V30's bite sou...

I just slid my chassis out as I was swapped preamp tubes anyway. Here are some pix:

Re: Hey everyone + Rocker 30 transformer question

thx guys! I see, hear and smell absolutely nothing like poo with my R30 :) I've been looking for a reasonably priced Class A el34 rig that has both rich, character-ful cleans and get get out toward vintage Orange OD tones. I'm thinking the R30 will do it with some tube swaps. So far so good! I playe...

Re: Clean Head

Have you checked out Egnater? Great tone for the cash. The Tweaker 40 and Renegade (65W) both make huge Fender-y cleans and take pedals very well. Awesome bang for buck.

Hey everyone + Rocker 30 transformer question

Hey good folks of Forum of the Orange I just joined up and am also new to using Orange amps, so HELLO from San Francisco! I just got my first Orange (after years of admiring their huge tone), a mint 2010 Rocker 30 1x12. Still learning its sweet spots and have just started some speaker and tube swapp...
