Re: TH30 or not...

Hi there,
I had for 3 years a TH30 head, using it for stoner rock (live & rehearsal), I sold it to get a used Rocker 30.
Good choice indeed and I don't understand why I did not make it before....Overdriven tone is way way better !!!
Hope it help you

Re: Fortieth Anniversary Custom Shop "Michelle"

Cool looking (and most probably sounding) amp.
I know, it is a collector piece but almost 3.000 euros for a guitar amp ..? :( :(

Re: CR120

As an owner of a TH30 head, I first bought a CR120 head as a backup unit. Now, it sounds so amazing that I next used it as may main amp for gigs !!! :D :D :D :D

Re: Rocker 30 serial numbers

Congrats and keep it !!
I've recently changed my TH30 to a R30 head.

The only thing I can say: wooooh !!! what a difference, I couldn't believe it. I do not understand why Orange decided to discontinue it. Okay it has no reverb and no effect loop but it kicks ass without them. Impressive :D :D

Re: What OD pedal for my CR120H

I am boosting the dirty channel of my CR120 with a Moog MF Drive pedal (found for cheap as a 2nd hand) on a low gain setting.
That works perfectly for achieving a fat stoner-metal sound :) :)

Re: Bax Bangeetar - just love it!

wow ! awesome comments !
For me it was not that clear how well it can work either in front or in the FX loop of any Orangey-voiced amps.
but...it was before your posts !

Would it really bring some worth sound improvements for a TH-30 head ? I am playing stoner metal with this head and I am curious.

Re: Should I get the OR15H?

Hi,

Orange CR120 (solid state amp 120 W) is a cheap and an excellent alternative for Rockerverb.
I pair it with a 2x12" V30 cab for playing stoner metal & sludge rock. :wink: :wink:
Try it or tube it, you'll see: awesome.

Re: Should I get the OR15H?

Hi,
I'be been in the same situation for trying to select the right head to play some loud stoner/sludge stuff in rehearsals.
I now have a CR120H which represents a perfect & cheap option. Try it !

Re: NAD! ....CR120

I even played my CR120 head instead of my TH-30 in live sessions (clubs or small venues), believe me, this head sounded awesome with different 2x12 or 4x12 cabs :) A light weight, a classic orange head look, pure clean and dirty tones, no fear of valve failure issues,.... just test it and keep it !!!

Re: New NAMM Gear

it was only an example and I know that hybrid amps have been previously released by other concurrents.
What I meant is that I was much more excited when Orange launched new lunchbox-sized hybrid/valve heads (TT, DT, MT, MD,...) or s-s CR series. :D :D

Re: New NAMM Gear

a bit disappointed...2 pedals, bass...headphones... Orange now proposes pretty conventional products (made in Far East plants like others and that will probably be too pricy)

Where is the originality ? :( :( I was expecting some more exciting and pioneer products such as >20 W hybrid amps
