Re: Orange Amp choice for replace th30

I know this does not really help your situation but I have been able to get a pretty good clean out of my Ad30 combo. I switched out the vintage 30s for a g12h and a blue alnico and it really helped.

Re: What Made You Choose ORANGE?

The forum lives on. As a younger feller one of my favourite bands was Underoath. Guitarist played a Rocker 30 into a PPC212 for a few years. It was such a unique sound and look in that genre that I had to have it!!! I was dumb at the beginning and figured I wanted the bigger version of his rig (RV1...

Anyone using an Attenuator on their AD30 Combo?

I have had my AD30 for about ten years now. I recently have been messing with stuff on it (New speakers and Tubes). I have been considering picking up one of the Dr. Z Brake Lite's to mount in the amp. I mainly play at home and at church. I usually play on Channel one with Master at 12 and Gain at a...

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

This happened to me in front of 4000 people when I was 17... The bad thing about it is that the amp I had was a tube amp that could also be switched to Solid State. My tubes crapped out and I panicked. We had to stop mid-song and switch amps... I could have just switched it to Solid State and finish...

Re: Talk to me about Orange Clean Tones

Ok, so I just put an SP Compressor by Xotic and my clean is so chimey now. I had to mess with it a bit. I finally got the clean tone out of my AD30 that I have been wanting. The downside is that the compressor puts out some noise. I have it on the medium setting.

Re: Talk to me about Orange Clean Tones

To add to the AD30, you can get a more chimey clean when using channel 2, in my experience.

Re: Orange Rocker 15 Combo

My 2001 Ad30 combo has done this since I bought it in 2010. I finally started changing out tubes. I am waiting on my NOS tubes to come in. I just put in some Tung Sol's. I am hoping I can make it work without doing the Rec tube too.

Re: Talk to me about Orange Clean Tones

I am currently on the Clean tone search with my AD30 combo and it is sounding pretty good right now. I took out the Vintage 30's and put in a G12H 70th Anniversary and an Alnico Blue and I put in some Tung-Sol 12AX7's. It seems to be a bit more chimey. I have some new EL84's coming that are supposed...

Re: Ad30 Tube and Speaker Change Questions

AD30 will blow a Blue in a New York minute. Add up the cost of a Gold and a retube kit and you're right about AC15 money -- I bought mine new / b-stock for $425. With stock tubes and stock Greenback it sounds very good at all volumes from living room to medium club. Orange Rocker 15 would do the tr...

Re: 2001 AD30TC Combo Tube Replacements

Ok, I ordered some from that first link. I also found the 12ax7 tung sol on eBay. Should I wait on the rec tube? I really appreciate the help from everyone! The EL84's are going to take a bit to get here but that will be fine. Once I get my amp settled, I am going to add a compressor and preamp to ...

Re: 2001 AD30TC Combo Tube Replacements

The ones in the Reverb link look good, albeit expensive, like at The Tube Store. The ones from the ebay link are used ('Strong' means they have life in them, for the price, probably not a bad deal on a set of backup tubes). However, they also don't have the -EV suffix, which makes them 'ordinary'. ...

Re: 2001 AD30TC Combo Tube Replacements

-As much good clean headroom as possible. I like a little break up. I have read a solid state rectifier would be good for this. -As chimey as possible (for an orange). I like brighter tones. Clean headroom is in the output tubes and IMO, you can't beat NOS Soviet 6P14P-EV tubes. Spec'ed for 5000-10...

Re: 2001 AD30TC Combo Tube Replacements

Thanks for the replies so far, guys! I should have specified that the main reason I figure it is time to change them is that I have a lot of tube rattle. Are the full retube kits on eurotubes a good option? They are JJ. Also, if I do that, other than volume db, do the "low output" options sound good?

Ad30 Tube and Speaker Change Questions

In 2010, I traded a Blues Deville and some Cash for an AD30 combo. To that point, it was my dream amp. I was playing in Indie and Rock bands at the time so it was perfect. Fast forward to 9 years, a wife and a kid later... I have recently started playing a lot again and have joined the worship team ...
