Re: Orange Hustler amp

+1000 Get someone handy with a multimeter to figure out the resistance of your current speaker. A failure of the output transformer is a $200-400 part and it may well take other components like your speaker or tubes with it.

Nice amp rychehed! 8) It is a pull out type, yes. You'll need to select the correct impedance for your cab. Do you know what that is? (Probably 16 ohms stock.) I see the amp impedance selector is set at 4 ohms though. Is this correct for that speaker in the combo? The impedance should be marked on ...
