Re: Cab Recommendation For AD30HTC?

I run mine through a PPC412 with stock V30s. The pairing instantly killed any curiosity in other cabs.

Re: Taming Feedback: AD30HTC w/ OD Pedal

I know what you're going through as I face this too. I play a lot of doom/stoner and run heaps of fuzz through my AD30HTC 2nd channel and have to deal with the excess noise. Unfortunately, when using this much distortion, noise comes with the territory and noise suppression is the obvious quick fix....

Re: I tried to like Orange

I once had a friend loan me his Mesa Lone Star head and cab for what turned out to be more than a year. It was a sexy looking amp and many people swear by it, but you know what? I couldn't for the life of me, bond with that amp. It was just the complete opposite of what I look for in an amp. Upon re...

Re: Bonamassa is quite the gear freak then.....

Great video!
I've seen him live three times and each time was quite a different show but all equally awesome. It's nice to see that even famous players can still be huge gear nerds. His collection is just ridiculous. :shock:

Re: AD30HTC Rectifier/PT issue.

One other thing, I often use a cranked ZVEX Super Hard On into channel one with gain set high and master set quite low. Is there any chance this could be hard on the PT/rec tube?. But since my master is set to bedroom level, isnt it V1 taking the brunt of it and acting as a limiter so no harsh signa...

Re: AD30HTC Rectifier/PT issue.

Update: :) My friend gave me a new Ruby 5AR4 today. I tried it tonight and it worked right away and I played it for about an hour with no issues. I still feel I'm not in the clear yet and am still left with a lot of questions. The most confusing thing is why the Sovtek doesn't light up in my AD30 bu...

AD30HTC Rectifier/PT issue.

This is what's happening. All preamp and power amp tubes light up, the jewel lamp lights, but the rectifier tube does not. There's no idling noise that's normally always present once the rec tube kicks in. The current rectifier tube is a Sovtek 5AR4. All power tubes are less six months old, and prea...

Re: sovtek rectifier issue

Funny you mention this.. A few months ago I swapped out the stock GZ34 rectifier tube in my 2006 AD30HTC for a Groove Tubes 5AR4 and upon startup, I immediately blew a fuse.

Re: Compliment/contrast my AD15 (Fender, Vox, Supro?)

My two main amps are my Orange AD30HTC through a PPC412 and my 65 Deluxe Reverb RI with a Jensen P12Q. Since the Orange is more of a mid heavy amp, the Fender compliments it perfectly with a more scooped feel. I use my orange for dirty rock, doom, metal, basically anything not clean, and that's wher...

Re: Orange Amps and Big Muffs

Forgot to mention, I'm referring to playing into a clean amp. I've never been one for stacking fuzz pedals or playing fuzz into an amp with preamp gain.

Re: Orange Amps and Big Muffs

With heavy distortion and fuzz, it's crucial to turn down the gain level as your master volume increases. Saturation that sounds good at bedroom levels, quickly turns to mush when the power tubes start to break up I use a Big Muff(ish) fuzz with my AD30HTC every day. It's all about settings. In fact...
