Finally! A simple rig that works!

Like everyone else on this forum I have been through multiple set-ups over the years trying to get the tone I want, well 20+ amps & to many pedals to count later I have a rig that is utter simplicity: PRS Custom 22 > Fulltone Wah > 65amp Colour Boost (rangemaster) > Orange Retro 50 Head > Orange 212...

Re: BIGGEST Gig Ever????

Probably it was for ~2500 people at a outdoor festival, it was fun but you really have to have your sound together or else you can't hear each other. I actually like to play in pubs with a crowd of 50-70 folks, seems like I connect better.

Re: Thinking About Getting a Class 5

I have the latest version of the Class 5 combo (low power mode) and in spite of some of the previous comments I find it very useful and gig worthy. I will agree that on it's own it is average sounding at times but I plug a treble booster (65amps colour boost) in front of my Class 5 an the tone is si...

Re: Speaker Suggestions for Retro 50

The Retro 50 (killer amp) does tend toward the darker tones so I found that mine sounds best with brighter speakers. I often use a Orange 212 with the Vintage 30's (good sound) but it really comes alive with a cabinet that has two Celestion Century neo speakers in it. YMMV (Also, sometimes I put a 6...

Re: RV50 MKI = Best Amplifier Ever.

I agree to all the above! I searched for over ten years and countless amps and when I plugged into the Rockerverb 50 MK1 I knew that was the one I had been looking for. I haven't tried the MK2 yet so I can't comment, I also have a Retro 50 but that is a different animal.

Re: Need high gain pedal suggestions for Rockerverb 50

My Keeley modded Rat is very nice through my RV50, but the Fulltone Plimsoul is the best I've found.

Re: Update: green day cover show

I am also a big Green Day fan, we do a set of four of their hits, I like guitarists who can do a lot with simple chord arrangements. Orange amps can really dial in the Billy Joe sound, my TH30 just loves it when we do "Know your Enemy or "When I come around". I love three piece bands, because you ha...

Re: Thinking of becoming a 1 amp guy

I wish I could go with just one amp but I like different flavors. To me it would be like only eating one type of food everyday, I like to experiment and try different flavors. But if I had to I would probably go with my Rockerverb mark 1, still the most versatile amp on the planet. Hey Tango! Long t...

Re: New to the Orange Community - Just purchased a TH30 Head!!!

I've had my TH30 head for 2 months now and have found it to be a great gigging amp. I replaced the EL84's with new JJ's, and the preamp tubes with EH12AX7's, the amp is quiet and has more than enough power for all my needs. I'm considering trying a 5751 tube in the V1 of the lead channel to see if i...
