Re: Just a question!

I prefer Tung Sol or EHX (they're almost identical) because they seem to have some pleasant surprises that JJ's lack. That being said, it's all very subjective and they're affordable, so it's easy to try a few and form your own opinion.

Re: The ultimate Orange lunchbox amp comparison! (7 amps)

They all sound very similar to me. I could get along fine with any of them. I've got an OR15 because of the effects loop, but the Rocker 15 also has one plus a clean channel. They're all pretty nifty amps.

Re: Orange amplification ....I would like please

A Tremlord head would be nice. Even without the spring reverb it would still be a great amp. They sound really good to my ears.

Re: Found a pair of 4 x 15 Orange Cabinets

This is what the guy at orange had to say. So, this is a 4 x 15 off set bass cabinet and would have been sold during the era of the 250watt Orange Matamp Guitar Amps. The picture of the cabinet showing the speakers have the 1 pin nylon corners which were used from 1968 -69. The picture of the cabin...

They weigh about 50kg each, i'll take a proper look at the date codes when I pick them up but the pre rola label dates them no later than 1971 i think
Might be earlier. Cabs like that did not last very long. You'd have to hire 2 extra people to move them.

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

So what are we hearing at the notches? Clipping at different frequencies Jondog beat me to it. Yes, just a point when the cumulative clipping raises more than at other points. I wonder if the extra clipping added by the 1st ECC83 triode causes the following triodes to clip even more - similarly to ...

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

The gain stages are all in series, they are not on/off or switched independently, what comes out of one is fed into the next.You can adjust when each begins to clip to a point through design, but they are always producing signal. Something unique to modern Orange amps is the use of a dual gang pot ...

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

So you're both right, is what I'm hearing. Personally, I'm having an interesting conversation, and learning a few things. If I've been laboring under a delusion, it seems to be a fairly common one. There does seem to be more than one way to achieve cascading gain. For instance, if you have 2 overdr...

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

My phrase "second gain stage kicking in" is probably oversimplified, but it seems adequate to describe what I'm hearing. Yes - some amps are more linear than others. With the RV50, or R30, you reach points on the gain control where the dirt level jumps quite a bit over a tiny fraction of the rotati...

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

You can plainly hear where each gain stage kicks in. I suppose that's the point where the output of one stage becomes the input of the next stage, thus increasing the gain. That's why it's called cascading gain. This is my understanding of it as well, though now I'm second guessing myself as Les Pa...

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

All the amps with 4 gain stages are tied for most gain. Like others have said, I barely use the second stage. Somewhere between the 3rd and 4th hashmark is pretty much perfect. If you play metal, you probably go a bit past that. All the gain stages are on at all times. Your signal will flow through...
