Re: NGD: Epiphone Snow Falcon

Interesting, I wasn't aware of the specific issues with the snow falcon. i wish i would have gotten one anyways. you still can. but now because there were only 500 made their value is going up, finish issues or no. but ill settle for this epi snow falcon. it's a great guitar anyways. and i won't ha...

Re: NGD: Epiphone Snow Falcon

thanks and so far it is fun. better than expected. i am really enjoying the killpot. i'm fairly familiar with nitro yellowing with time. but what i am talking about is not consistent with the nitro yellowing i'm used to seeing that takes place with age. the yellowing is splotchy on a lot of them and...

NGD: Epiphone Snow Falcon

Got this Epiphone LE Brendon Small Snow Falcon today. Obviously it's one of Brendon Small's sig guitars. i am not really a fan but i like the guitar. Gibson had a Snow Falcon around 2012 or 2013, i can't recall which year it was atm. When it first came out i couldn't stand it and thought it was ugly...

Re: what is the highest gain Orange in production atm?

yeah the dual dark's were the highest gain. but they do not make them anymore. easy enough to find them used.
everyone seems to say the rockerverb is highest gain now, but i wonder still.

Re: what is the highest gain Orange in production atm?

i guess i mean preamp wise. which orange amp's gain circuit/stages push the preamp the most? before the dual dark's were discontinued i'd say they had the most obviously. when i had a epi valve junior i could get it into death metal territory with a good distortion pedal and boost. way less gain tha...

Re: The Wombats at Glasto....light blue Orange Amps !!

would be easy for someone to just do that to their cabs. it's not hard to rip off tolex and replace it. usually the older the tolex the easier it is to rip off. i've de-tolexed every cab i got. i hate tolex. but i'd keep it on an orange cab.

Re: To scoop or not to scoop

When playing with a bassist and drummer I'd say crank those mids and lower the bass. Low frequencies will be covered by the bass player anyway and the mids are where the guitar lies in the mix. Go with what sounds good to you, your ears alone will tell you. i wish more guitarists understood this ab...

Re: OR15 Demos. What am I missing?

Toby's demos are probably the best you can find on youtube. Orange should be paying him to demo their stuff. And he mics them all, tho i do not know what DAW he is using to record them. but more than likley he's using some kind of noise reduction at the very minimum. no way you're going to get an ac...

posted today. timely video on how much headroom you actually need vs avg power you run your amp at.

i'd say if you're playing metal or overdriven rock the lower headroom is what you want, not higher.

Re: Dual Dark 50 or 100? "Darkness and Wattage" discussion

even back in the day 100 watts were overkill though most people from back in the day do not or can not admit to that. i ran a peavey vtm 120 for a long time. i hardly ever came across a situation where i'd need to turn the volume (post) up past 2 on the volume knob. most times if you saw a show with...

Re: Orange Rocker 15 combo + Mooer Red Truck or single pedals?

i been wanting to try one of the trucks. i think i'd like to have the black truck, as it's got the 5 band eq and metal distortion with the overdrive. but i guess the black truck is more for hi gainy metal sounds. and i'd need two .... to run stereo .... somehow. and yeah can o' worms is right. there...

That's a really good demo of the scope of that amp.
i think toby has some of the best amp demos on youtube. and a lot of them just happen to be orange amps.
