Re: Bi-amping (Dirty amp + clean w/fuzz) HELP!!!

This is strange. First time (on soundcheck actually) when we tried this fuzz with his setup, wah was not functioning. Yesterday I tried in our rehearsal place and it is fine… my thoughts were the same… I need to place tuner after way. It worked. But then I swapped back, and it still worked… no diffe...

Bi-amping (Dirty amp + clean w/fuzz) HELP!!!

Hi! Ok, this is not directly related to Orange, but I'm asking here because I trust you guys! And also because I would like to do the same setup… OK, here it goes… In my band, other guitarist is playing Marshall JCM 800 and Ampeg VT22. Marshall is on dirty channel and Ampeg is on clean channel. So H...

Re: Or120 1974

Welcome to OR120 fan club :) And congrats! What are you running it on? PPC412 with V30??? If you have a chance, try it on G12Hs. I tried many different speakers, but I ended up with G12Hs Blackbacks from 78's. Black Magic! :) Anyway, I think you will never sold your OR120. It is simple amp, that has...

Re: YOUR fav fuzz pedal with your Orange ?

I do agree that with OR120 Master volume mode does kill the headroom and I think OR120 takes better all the fuzzes when opened on full - no attenuation. I had hard time searching for best fuzz for my Or120. I love the sound of this amp by its own, but its to light for some really heavy sounds. I run...

Re: Orange Matamp vintage 4x12 (price???)

I will not remove the paint… it will take too long for now. Friend of mine gave me a mix of chemicals (he's working in some kind of restoration shop). The smell is the problem for this cold winter. I cannot do it inside. Anyway… I finally installed 78s Blackbachs G12H 75 with kurt miller cones and t...

Re: Orange Matamp vintage 4x12 (price???)

Well, it looks like the speakers are not original. Matamp usually used Fanes and Square magnet Eminences. Or maybe someone ordered the cab with geenies. In my opinion, G12H is just much better fit. It has more headroom. Greenbacks just don't produce that bottom end. They just get really compressed a...

Re: Orange Matamp vintage 4x12 (price???)

OK, lets face it. I played this cab for 2 days now… Greenbacks just don't do the trick, but I know that this cab is much more capable than, lets say Marshall JCM 800 cab or something in that domain. Yes, looks matter to me. And If you ask me if I would buy an almost new PPC 4x12 with china made V30 ...

Re: Orange Matamp vintage 4x12 (price???)

Ok, some update! The guy who is selling is was so kind to let me take the cab and test it in my studio. It looks better than the photos… Black shitty paint job is don on original rolex. It is not pretty, but who cares… OK, so here it goes… It has original vintage pre rola G12M 75. T1220, 102 003 con...

Re: Orange Matamp vintage 4x12 (price???)

What are you running for a head into it? Since it's not a ported cab, 25 watt Celestions can easily handle a 100 watt head - and for example, I used to run my Marshall Superlead which put out 147 watts into a single vintage greenback 25 watter cab. The closed cab helps reduce the full travel of the...

Re: Orange Matamp vintage 4x12 (price???)

Thanx for advice! Yes, if speakers are pre rola I think the price is ok. But if they are 25 waters, thats not enough for me. I really don't want to blow them. I will try to lower the price because of shitty paint job. Maybe for like 650 euros. That would be great. Anyway, I can buy new PPC Orange (u...

Re: Or120 too much for 120W cab?

Yeah, I was thinking to pull two tubes out and rebias it and Ohm compensation… How do I know that speakers are working too hard??? And I if I blow a speaker is there a chance to blow the amp to, if I'm on a concert rocking hard and I have no idea that this is happening??? Is it maybe a better idea t...

Or120 too much for 120W cab?

Hi there! I finally got my hand on proper Celestion G12H Blacbacks from 70's. So this speakers are 30W Each, that makes 120W in 4x12 configuration. How safe is to run my OR120 near max power? It this a potential risk for blowing my new celestions? I have a Master volume mod, but I rely like the amp ...

Re: Pushing my OR120 Master Volumen from breakup to full gai

Yes, Or120 is very picky beast. I play Les Paul with mine, and it is really hard to find a good Fuzz/overdrive/Distortion box that goes well with it (If you really play it on full). Mine is from 73 I think and I have made a PPIMV mod but I play it on full anyway. So max Overdrive that Or120 can prod...

Re: 1976 OR120 or OD120

Usually, I'm really concerned about running my OR120 on cabs that I'm not 100% sure about their power handling. If I run FAC on 2 (from left) EQ Flat (or maybe bass on 3 o clock) and Gain to full, there is zoo much power that this amp can produce that I really don't think it is a good idea running i...
