Re: AD15 Mods - Questions for the Experts

Would you mind trying gain and volume maxed and seeing if you get some squeal/oscillation/feedback? You don't even need a guitar plugged in in mine, just does it by itself. Just tested with nothing plugged in. Quiet as a mouse even with all the tone knobs maxed out. I may have been thinking about m...

Re: AD15 Mods - Questions for the Experts

Booh...... what happened to it? My own AD15 has started to feedback all by itself with the gain and volume cranked, so I think I'm heading towards a full recap. It isn t valve related for sure. It's almost 20 years old now, so a recap is on the menu anyway. Not even gonna try to trace, I'll just ch...

Re: AD15 Mods - Questions for the Experts

All of this is all well and good, but if I had serial number 001, I wouldn't touch anything. Just saying. :mrgreen: I lost that from sight..... I would defo buy another one to play around with. Well with a push/pull pot it would be reversible... and it's not like the inside is still original anyway...

Very easy.
Neatest non invasive way would be a push pull pot.
Cool idea. May have to give that a try.

Re: AD15 Mods - Questions for the Experts

The best person to answer this would be Ade but I guess he does not get time to visit here now. c4 is a cathode bypass cap. The cathode resistor of 1k5 is a very generic value for an ECC83 running a plate resistor of 100k. Adding a bypass resistor will give you a gain boost that will be quite full ...

Re: 1979 Orange Dealer Pricing Catalog

There’s no difference between the function of PCBs from the 60s/70s and the function of PCBs now. The biggest difference between the PCBs from back in the day and modern PCBs is the green soldermask and white silkscreen with text it. Except that today's boards have pots, jacks, and sockets mounted ...

Re: 1979 Orange Dealer Pricing Catalog

Not to be that guy but Orange amps were PCB since like 69 or 70. They wouldn’t be PTP wiring in the late 70s. I’ve only seen ORSTs that used tag board instead of a PCB. Maybe an OR200 would count as PTP and those were built into the early/mid 70s. Fair point. But at least the Overdrive Series didn'...
