Thanks Allen. Have the RV50's always had 6v6 powertubes?

Thanks for the responses guys! I'm sure that the Rockerverbs have more than enough preamp gain to get great tones at lower volumes, but it is a different type and character of gain. I like to get the power tubes working a bit to add tightness and punch to the sound. Makes the amp sound fuller as wel...

Well, I had pretty much made up my mind that if I was going to try an Orange amp it was going to be the RV50, ...then I heard a clip of the RV100. [:0] I guess I just have a thing for that EL34 tone. The RV100 just seemed tighter, crunchier, punchier, etc. Of course I realize that it's 100 watts vs....

The Orange website mentions a "new" F8 output transformer for the Rockerverb 50. Is this something new or has the Rockerverb always used this tranny since going with 6v6 power tubes? If not, what year did they make the change?

Ok, I don't just play 80's metal, but my cover band does do some hard rock and 80's metal in between the classic rock stuff. It seems like the RV50 with the 6v6s wouldn't be able to get a tight enough tone to pull off say Ratt or Whitesnake, etc. I would think the OR50 with the EL34s would be a bett...

Hey everyone. New guy here. I've really been digging the clips I've been hearing of the Orange stuff and think I'm going to grab one soon. I've got it narrowed down to a Rockerverb 30 or 50. Leaving out the equation of volume, headroom, or money, which one would you choose? I guess someone who owns ...
