Re: What attenuator should I buy?

If I get one, and run the amp every day at let's say 7/10 volume, how often should I change the power tubes? Is there any danger to the amp if I don't change them and the tube fails?

What attenuator should I buy?

I love that power amp distortion on my Rv50(sadly I have Mk2 and not Mk3 which has power brake built in). However, I can get it only when the volume is above 6/10 and that is insanely loud. So do you have any experience with additional power brakes? Should I get one?

Re: Petrucci tone (Mesa Mk2) on Rockerverb

You are right, the od helps A LOT. I'm gonna try adding the eq in the fx loop too.

Petrucci tone (Mesa Mk2) on Rockerverb

Yes, I wonder how to get closer to Petrucci's tight prog metal tone with my Rockerverb. I prefer his Images and Words to Scenes from a Memory guitar tone. He probably used Mesa Mk2 on these albums. Any suggestions on how should I get this tone? Naturally, Rv is too muddy on the dirty channel and tha...

Rockerverb 50 Mk2 price

Hi. I want to hear your opinion on that. Do you think that the price of the Rv mk2 will actually rise up in a couple of years/decades? I actually think there is a chance that the Rockerverb series will become legendary bc even now they are a classic in alternative/nu metal world(e.g. Jim Root, Brian...

Re: Harsh sound coming from cabinet center-normal?

Okay, so I guess I was right that it is completely normal. Pretty interesting that I have discovered this so lately, bc I have been using my 4x12 for a few years now. I have pretty shitty cabinet though. I wonder if the original Orange cabs are also directional that much.. What interested me is that...

Harsh sound coming from cabinet center-normal?

Hi. Today I've been experimenting with my 4x12 cab and position of the chair in front of it. I found a pretty interesting thing. Few days before the sound of my amp somehow changed to something pretty harsh and non pleasant and I wondered why. Today I found what was the fault! It was because I moved...

Re: Rockerverb Mk2 sound issue

Well, it seems that I have kinda got rid of the problem. It was my fault. The eq in this amp is different to what I am used to. It has naturally much more mids than any other amp I have played. I am really more of a metalhead than a rocker, but I don't like scooping the mids either. I have played wi...

Re: Rockerverb Mk2 sound issue

The previous owner told me that the amp has been used only a few times and then hasn't been used at all for 3 years or so. The valves have never been changed. Don't know if I should believe him, though.

Re: Rockerverb Mk2 sound issue

Thanks for help, but I think I have explained it wrong. The volume knob gives very linear increase in volume. However when the volume is set low, the sound is nowhere as good as when it is set high. It lacks low end, treble and definition. I have asked local guitar amp seller and he also told me tha...

Rockerverb Mk2 sound issue

Hi! I have recently bought Rockerverb 50 Mk2 second hand and I think I am having some sound issue. The tone on dirty channel is flat, muddy and pretty much unusable when the master volume is below 12 o'clock. When the amp is cranked it sounds great, however the loudness is insane then. The distortio...
