Re: Best Orange for good tone at low volumes?

My Rocker 15 Terror has a 'Headroom/Bedroom' power scaling feature. Takes it from 15/7W down to 1/0.5W. I tried to A/B it with a Bad Cat Unleash attenuator and preferred the Bedroom setting, by far. For a silent stage setup, I use a Two Notes Torpedo loadbox/cab simulator/DI box. I used it today wi...

Re: Micro Dark FX Send/Return Question

If it worked, you know your track would be subject to the OD and effects you use to drive your sound?

I think it will sound like ass, but IMO, it won't hurt to try.

Re: TH30 Clean channel picking up local radio.

Just curious....was it ever working? Did anything change, i.e. amp location, etc.?

NEVER run an amp without a cab or loadbox.

Re: El84 in Orange AD30

Copy this: 6p14p-ev matched quad NOS Go to ebay and paste and search. You should get a number of hits. Or you could try www.thetubestore.com. They sell them ...

Re: 2 Oranges squeezed into 1?

Nope. But if it's headroom and output power you seek, it could be done with a Bad Cat Unleash.

Re: El84 in Orange AD30

+1 for the Soviet 6P14P-EV tubes. Clearest, cleanest sounding EL84 I've tried in my amps. That said, there's nothing wrong with JJ's, they usually come stock in Orange amps (or at least so I've heard. They came with my Rocker 15 Terror and a Tiny Terror that I sold). Really nothing wrong with EHX, T...

Re: Dirt on Rockerverb 50 Mkiii vs Brent Hinds Terror?

I have a Rocker 15 Terror. Similar layout, no EQ on the natural channel. I added an Ibanez EQ pedal and it works great. Really amazing how much tweaking can be done with one. They can also transform a fuzz pedal.

Re: Just a question!

There are only three tube manufacturers on the planet. The preference around here and elsewhere seems to be JJ and I think they work fine. I've also tried Tung-Sol, Sovtek, EHX, Shuguang and others that all did the job. Sovtek's might have been the 'worst', but still did not transform the amp. I've ...

Note to anybody shipping a tube amp.....remove them and wrap in bubble wrap, secure tightly, no problems.

Re: TH30 valves damaged in shipment - can I fix this?

Ouch! I hate this story! Much has already been said. I'll second that JJ EL84's sound great with my Orange and VOX amps. As for buying extra preamp tubes, it NEVER hurts to have backup tubes, especially if you gig.

Re: What happens if your amp goes down mid-gig.....

IMO, a pedalboard straight to a PA will sound dreadful. There needs to be some kind of preamp in there, as well as cab simulation. If my Rocker 15 Terror goes down mid-gig, I'm reaching for my VOX Nigh Train. The convenience of being able to tote two lunchbox heads is why I switched to them from usi...
