Re: TH30 problem?

Hey!
Did you swap the tubes? Have you noticed some improvements?
However my TH30 (that I bought used) has JJ's tubes (pre and power) but since I bought it used I don't know if the former owner has made a tube swap.

Re: Orange TH30 dirty channel

Incidentally, I managed to scare myself during this test, by unwittingly (is there a theme across my posts in this thread? :oops: ) operating the amp with a cable plugged into the effects send socket, with the other end of the cable plugged into nothing; I could hardly get any volume out of the amp...

Re: Orange TH30 dirty channel

Here are the results from my TH30C (tubes are still the stock ones) with my 2004 Les Paul Studio's stock bridge pick-up. As per Invin's tests, I used all four power tubes and the full power setting on the front panel. Dirty volume was set to 12 o'clock. (Hopefully that was the same as Invin's "5".)...

Re: OFFICIAL ORANGE SOUND CLIP THREAD

I stuck a set of JJ's in my TH30 and tested it against a Laney vc50 for some high gain stuff.

Re: Orange TH30 dirty channel

I swapped the preamp tubes with no better results so I start to think it's normal too even though I don't like it too much... By the way I think I won't use the dirty channel at low gain, for this the clean channel is far better!

Re: Orange TH30 dirty channel

That definitely doesn't sound right to me... it sounds like yours has a lot less gain all the way through than mine. Was it loud when you were making the video? Because mine is painfully loud with the volume that high on the dirty channel at full power. You might have a bad tube. Is there any diffe...

Re: Orange TH30 dirty channel

Yes, from 10 o'clock on I get a nice tone.
The issue is in the huge difference, in the same channel, from gain at 9 o'clock to 10 o'clock and more... It seems like it sounds from 10 to 100 with nothing in between!

Orange TH30 dirty channel

Hi everybody, first topic for me! :D I recently purchased a used TH30, it sounds great! However I just noticed that, on the dirty channel, gain levels lower than 9 o'clock would make the amp sound very very low, almost not sounding at all. After increasing the gain level over 9 o'clock then the amp ...
