Re: Why/how did the forum lose its popularity?

It wasn't that popular to begin with. O.k., maybe a bit more popular than now, but not in the sense that people would answer the threads a day later, more like a couple of days later, so it wasn't really worth checking up daily.

Re: OR-80 Overdrive vs OR-120 tone and volume differences?

Can't say I'm an expert in electrolytic capacitor brands, but they don't look that new and they should probably be replaced after 25 years. Someone else may have a better idea, seems like that company is still in business, but I couldn't find that they still make electrolytic caps. The amp will sti...

Re: OR-80 Overdrive vs OR-120 tone and volume differences?

I might open it up to take additional photos, but for now here are a couple of internal photos I took a while ago. No work has been done on the amp since I got it over 2 years ago. https://i.imgur.com/CwY2ePr.jpg https://i.imgur.com/Wx0Xz5U.jpg Can't say I'm an expert in electrolytic capacitor bran...

Re: OR-80 Overdrive vs OR-120 tone and volume differences?

My OR80 OD was reportedly serviced shortly before I bought it, with new tubes installed.... But I can actually bear to play my OR80 OD with it at its maximum clean volume while standing next to the amp, without needing any hearing protection. I cannot do that with my JCM 2203. If you're using the s...

Re: OR-80 Overdrive vs OR-120 tone and volume differences?

Have both amps been biased recently? If so, were the plate dissipation percentages similar?

You should remodel your basement to make it look like a hobbit hole to match the guitar. :D

Cool guitar.

My last 112 was as heavy as this and nowhere near as full sounding.
What kind was it?

I have an Engl 1x12" and it's heavier than the Orange cab you got according to specs, never tried the Orange.

Re: What happens if your amp goes down mid-gig.....

Fits in your case https://orangeamps.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Orange-Micro-Terror-1-1030x1030.png I need to order parts to fix my big amps, so I'm using it a lot now. Sounds great through a 4x10", I kind of like it even better than with 12" speakers because it sounds tighter. I use it with pe...

Re: Need help with Micro Terror

Try the mp3 player input. If that works, then the ECC83 is faulty.

Re: Questions about the PPC108

Hey I know this cab says onto to use it with the micro heads, but anyone know why? Especially if I had, say, 2 of them, or hooked them up to a 1 watt tube amp, is that gonna pose any risk? They're not going to recommend stuff by other manufacturers, because they can't be held liable, although it sh...

Re: VT1000 Tube tester adapters

I will be getting my VT1000 in a few days. I have made an adapter for 7027 valve since it is internally identical to a 6L6GC. The adapter passes all pins except pin 1 and 6 which are not present on a 6L6. I will see how it works on the 7027's. Let me know if any one else has any adapters for tubes ...

Musique Industrie

I figured this company from the 70s might be of interest here. Unfortunately I don't have one, I was just surfing this site: http://musiqueindustrie.free.fr/page23/page8/files/tete-musique-industrie-76745.jpg The amps seem cosmetically related to Orange, but they just copied the look.

Re: Micro Dark direct recording issues

That's what computer settings do. There is not only an input level control, but another one which does something else internally so you can get a distorted sound with a low level, plus mic/line and whatever other settings. Someone could write a book about it, it can't be covered in a thread on a for...

Re: Micro Dark direct recording issues

You can spend hours looking into the audio settings for computers, it's really frustrating.

But besides that, you might want to try a stereo cable to see what happens. I have a hunch it's the settings, but try that as well.
