Re: Ad30 Tube and Speaker Change Questions

Hi ArchDill, I have an AD15 combo, and I recently retubed with JJ's (as normal) but this time I used a JJ-ECC83 MG (MID GAIN) in V1, and it gave it some real extra headroom. I tend to crank the Master and use Gain quite low, just before it breaks up. IT gives me a some great clean tones with the gui...

Re: AD15 - Speaker change?

Thanks guys, thats really helpful. I'm not sure I'm overly confident buying vintage speakers that have been refurbed, but very keen to try the G12H30 range. Listening a bit on YouTube for a guide, they do sound a bit less compressed and more open that V30's, but still with plenty of clarity, top end...

Re: AD15 - Speaker change?

Thanks for the feedback Steamboat I get a bit lost with all the G12H speakers, there seems to be a few, Heritage and Modern, and then the Heritage have different Bass Resonence ratings too, which I also don't understand! Are you able to provide a bit more info around the vintage G12h you mentioned? ...

Re: AD15 - Speaker change?

Thanks for all the advice and feedback guys, always much appreciated. Nothing really wrogn with the V30, it is UK made and nicley broken in, so not too harsh sounding. Just curious to try some options. The Alnico Blue would be great, but probablyt too much of an investment for me, but the G12h 70thA...

Re: AD15 - Speaker change?

Thanks guys I'm particularly curious about the Greenback, but with the AD15 being a little Dark in nature, would the Greenback accentuate that by tapering the top end and upper mids of the stock V30? Doing some research, it looks like Greenbacks and G12H Anniversary speakers have been used at variou...

AD15 - Speaker change?

Hi guys, I love my Oraneg AD15, but am curious to try some different speakers (some say it's almost like getting a new amp, becasue it can make such a difference). I play mianly classic rock, indie, britpop styles, and have a natural tendency towards British sounds/amps. Does anyone have an experien...

Re: AD30HTC - Trying to sort it out

Hi Chachi, If you can, try a Crowther Hotcake, it goes great with my AD15. Nice boost, bit of extra presence but also fullness to the sound. It was made to be a perfect match with Vox's, of which the AD range is a slightly darker version of that circuit. Hotcakes have a bit of a sweet spot to the th...

Preamp pedals vs Regular Drive pedals

Could someone please explain the difference between a Preamp pedal (eg. Xotic BB Preamp, Victory V4, Mooer Micro Preamps, Two Notes Le Crunch) vs a regular drive pedal (eg. Tubescreamer, DS-1, etc)? I'm exploring the world of cabinet modelling and Impulse Responses, particularly with Two Notes Capto...

Re: Tube/speaker swap Rocker 15 combo please help

Hi cnemitz22, I had a Rocker 15 combo and noticed more fuzziness on the gain channel also, more than I expect from Orange, so I plugged it into the V30 on my AD15 combo (nicely worn in) and it smoothed the gain channel out massively, and helped the bottom end too (to my ears anyway) I sold my Rocker...

Re: TH30 or not...

Perhaps trying a lower gain pre-amp tube (1st) could help?

I put a JJ 12ax7 MG (Mid Gain) tube in my AD15, and it helped tame the gain and allow me to crank the Master volume, getting some more headroom and volume.

Cheap option to try at least, before buying another amp....

Re: AD15/12 - ohms question

Thanks guys, making more sense now! Would that mean I could disconnect the 16ohm speaker, and use the new Suhr Reactive load IR connected to the 8ohm socket? I'm keen to explore the world of IR's for quiet practice at home, so looking at the Suhr (which is very $$$) and Torpedo Captor with a Cab Sim...

Re: AD15/12 - ohms question

Ok thanks Ant, I guess the 16ohms on the black sticker is referring to the Speaker probably.

I did see the 16ohm and 8ohm noted to the right, on the plate, so was confused and curious to work out if both sockets could be used.
