Re: OR120 mod

hello, yes, I KNOW this is an old thread, I'm replying to it to set the record straight on a few things for future gents to be able to sort out their amp easier. I used to be "Amperex" on the OFG and the plexi palace eons ago, and Im the one who "suggested" to remove the 220K resistor to ground bef...

Re: OR120 clean sound at lower volumes for small stages

Yes! It's been so long since we talked OR-120/80 around here. :mrgreen: Most of the 70's amps I've seen have 115V primary taps for US voltage, whereas the 90's amps have a 120V tap. I've owned three 90's heads, and I haven't had any that were in the 470V range, but maybe my wall voltage is high aro...

Re: OR120 clean sound at lower volumes for small stages

Is it that one??? https://youtu.be/sU7Sy5Xhs40 Could you run it with a quartet of 6v6 too? I assume so? Yep, thats the one! a quartet would be fine as long as you adjust the impedance switch accordingly. 6V6 tubes might be worth a try. Though the amp was never designed to run that tube type, so the...

Re: OR120 clean sound at lower volumes for small stages

So now I'm not looking at 30 watt amps anymore. It's either the attenuator, or save more money to fund something like an OR100, which has a built in attenuator. I can't own two €1000+ high wattage amps though. I'm not poor, but I'm not that rich either, and it would be a waste not to use the other....

Re: OR120 clean sound at lower volumes for small stages

Have you looked into the mod that yossarian83 made to create a 20 watt OR120? Seems like it might be worth exploring. https://forum.orangeamps.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=51492 I don't know what part of the world Fughawz hails from. If not the United States, he/she might not even have to do the simple ...

Re: which el34 to buy for orange amps

I'm a big fan of GT EL34M's. The QC can be a bit spotty but so long as you handle them gently and bias them on the cool side, they sound miles ahead of any other new production EL34's I've heard.

Re: ORST vs Marshall video

I prefer the sound of the Marshall for the straight up playing, but the Orange has some really awesome gain, harmonics and undertones. I wonder how they would sound with the same speakers (M's are a lot different than H's). I still like the Orange... it's a bit too "soft" here but so much more comp...
