Can I put 12ax7 instead of 12at7 in the effect loop?

Hi, I've got a Rocker 15 Terror which hums even without a cable plugged in. It's not loud but it does bother me sometimes. It does get louder as I turn the power rating up (for example from 7w to 15w). Anyway, I've swapped all the 12ax7 tubes and both el84 tubes, the hum is still there. The only thi...

Constant Hum from a Tube Amp

Hi guys, I have a Orange Rocker 15 Terror. And there's a constant hum to it. My Jim Root Terror is dead silent using the same setup. I noticed the hum when I stopped playing. It remains unchanged through both clean and dirty channel, which is quite odd as hum should be worse when switched to the dir...

Re: 3 Preamp Tubes VS 4 Preamp Tubes, What's missing?

2 tubes make up the 4 stages (1/2 of a 12AX7 per stage, they're like two tubes in one). 1 tube for the effects loop, and on the Rockerverb a tube for the reverb circuit. The Jim Root Terror uses a 12AT7 for the effect loop, and it uses 3 12AX7s, for 4 stages of gain. Rockerverb on the other hand ha...

3 Preamp Tubes VS 4 Preamp Tubes, What's missing?

The Jim Root Terror is based on the Rockerverb and it has 3 preamp tubes. The Rockerverb has 4 tubes. But both these amps have 4 stages of gain, what does the missing 1 tube do? Does this mean that the Jim Root terror might have some sort of solid state gain stage? For example the Micro Dark's first...

7w/15w, what's the difference?

Can someone please lecture me on the wattage switch on orange amps? I switched my Jim Root Terror from 7w to 15w, I heard a slight volume increase, more high end and a little more bottom end but I'm not entirely sure because I've only been able to play it in bedroom level. What's the true purpose of...

What's the correct procedure to set an orange amp?

Hi I'm new to orange amps and this forum.It seems to me that the tone of orange amps is affected by not only gain but also volume. I've seen threads on dialing tones suggesting that pushing the power amp hard is necessary for an orange amp to sound good. I've seen folks set the volume on their orang...
