Re: Amp wish list...

1. Vox AC10 2. OR15 3. Thunderverb 50 - which I've asked Orange for the last two times they've done the Christmas giveaway, maybe this year? Not a terribly unrealistic list considering the first 2 are pretty affordable, but I'm still paying for my last guitar so I'm trying to fight off the urge to b...

Re: Bax B. - Black or white?

Personally I'd get the white one no question. I actually really don't like the look of the orange knobs.

Re: TH30 vs. TH100 - strictly a difference in wattage?

I assume you are asking because you are in the market for one or the other... If so consider what you are using it for. How many people really need 100W of tube power in an amp?? I'd say not many. I never intended to get the TH100 and kind of got mine by accident - love the sound but it is extremely...

Re: Carbon Copy Bright?

I believe this is a collaboration with Pro Guitar Shop. I watched a few demos of it a few weeks ago and I really like how it sounds -- but I think I'd still go for the original if I were to get one. The original just has something about it that is unique - this one, though it sounds good, sounds ver...

Re: NGD - Fender Tele HS

Thanks for the replies. I'm going to bring it back today to have it looked at, I'm not going to mess with it myself just in case I decide to return or exchange it. I know maybe I'm being a little OCD but it's a USA made tele, I was kind of expecting not to get it home and hear something weird right ...

NGD - Fender Tele HS

I've been on the lookout for Telecasters for about a year now -- when I was a kid just starting out I thought I'd never want a Fender but I grew to really enjoy the neck pickup sound for clean playing and, well - tastes change I guess. I frequently would fiddle with the mexican standards at GC while...

Re: Orange Rockerverb MKIII: orange or black?

Well I voted orange... my Orange is orange, but honestly they both look great, and if I ever get another I'd probably get it in black just for the variety. The rubber feet on the head will leave marks on the orange tolex if you don't put something under them -- not a big deal if your setup is statio...

Re: TH30 vs TH100 personal story (in real time June 2015)

You shouldn't have any problems with clean headroom on the TH100. I don't even run mine on full power and I don't get any breakup on the clean channel. I believe this amp's clean channel is considered to be the cleanest of any channel in the entire line of Orange amps. It also works really well with...

Re: MXR M117R Flanger - anyone use one?

If you have a few pedals like that already, and are worried about space, why not sell them and buy something like a Strymon Mobius or a TC electronic G System? I'm very satisfied with the few effects I'm using and basically just want to add a few more onto that rather than starting over again. My p...

MXR M117R Flanger - anyone use one?

Since trading a large number of pedals toward my TH100 a few years ago I've been slowly building my effects chain back up. I've been looking to add a modulation pedal (currently running a TC Alter Ego, Hall of Fame and a Boss tremolo in the loop) and I've really enjoyed what I've heard in demo video...

Re: th100 and th30

I think some of the "hate" that the TH amps get comes from the PRC tag. I can't afford to buy a Rockerverb or an OR100, and my band isn't serious enough to justify spending the money just because I want one. I had an opportunity to get my TH100 at a ridiculous price so I bought it. Most important th...

Re: th100 and th30

I have played a TH30 head and TH30 combo, I actually ordered a TH30 at my local store and received a TH100 instead due to a mix up. I'm very satisfied with the sound of the TH100. It seems beefier than the TH30 did, probably a result of the different output valves. I exclusively run mine with 4 outp...

Re: Black or orange RV50? Vote!

Ok, so orange it is (though I still love the looks of my black OR100). I used to always be an orange Orange guy, until I saw your old signature pic of your room full of black Oranges. They look awesome in black. However, when you got your rockerverb didn't it have gold piping on it? White>Gold pipi...

Re: TH100 - Low volume Q

I could be mistaken here, but it sounds like maybe the first preamp tube for the dirty channel. If the clean is fine it doesn't sound like a power tube problem. Plus you said that you start getting output around 11 o clock which must be when you are about to get into the next gain stage. Maybe see a...
