Re: What does a mains fuse look like when it's blown???

Could be the electrolytics in the power supply also. If they are gone bad, the amp keeps eating up fuses. Just another possibility.

Re: Stomp Box Sized Direct Injection Device?

Nick, Teddy, Sorry, if my statement on the Tech 21 stuff was misleading. They are very well made and do their job well. What I meant, was...is my personal impression and experience. But anyway, ripping out the guts from a solid state amp and fumbling them into a stomp box housing it's something I wa...

Re: *swallows pride* Pedal order help?

Distortion by its very nature is compression, making a sine wave into a square wave. I do see the occasional use of compression on distorted gtrs in a mixdown situation, but not often in a live rig, so I`d probably always run the compressor before the distortion if I was using distortion,although c...

Re: Stomp Box Sized Direct Injection Device?

I think a guy on here (Tiborange) makes tube-based pedals that are based on the sound of vintage Orange amps, as far as I can recall. Perhaps you should check out his stuff: http://www.tiborange.com/index2.html EHX released the 22 Caliber recently, which is a pedal-sized power amp - team one of tho...

Re: Stomp Box Sized Direct Injection Device?

Fast response guys. At Teddy, it was just a thought. But thanks for your advice. I have already a sort DI box I made myself: http://www.woodchuckred.de/Louisianna_front3.jpg Pretty straight forward. At Nick, I don't like the Tech 21 stuff at all. To me (and that is my personal opinion - don't want t...

Hi guys, Throwing in a new topic (maybe there is or was already a discussion about that. If so, just forget this post). What do you think about a direct injection preamp think in a neat package which can be easily installed on an effect/pedal board. Please allow some thoughts: - based on the Crush 3...

Re: Update on Replcing Stk Speaker with Ragin Cajun In Crush 30r

Great! Glad to hear that. I haven't ordered one yet. But that is just a matter of days. After listening to the soundclips available on the Eminence site, I was just sure that this is the right joice. Next thing will be installing a speaker OUT in order to run an external cab (preferably loaded with ...

Re: Acoustic string gauge question...

Hi everybody, Have to trough in my experience. First of of all, the quest for the right acoustic string is almost like the quest for the holy grale. In my humble opinion, it depends very much on the guitar itself which brand and which sort of string (phosphor bronze, 80/20 bronze, 80/15 bronze....) ...

Re: DEFINITIVE ORANGE FORUM GUIDE TO: Overdrive Pedals

WHICH ORANGE AMP DO YOU USE? Orange Crush 15 and a Crush 30R (I think it might be interesting for those who are playing solid state Oranges too, and are wondering which OD pedal i.e. works with these amps). WHICH OVERDRIVE PEDALS WORK BEST FOR YOU? Arion Tubulator (modified - I threw in some German...

Re: New Ragin Cajun Speaker For My Orange Crush 30R!!!

After months of deliberating I took the plunge and bought an Eminence Ragin Cajun for my Crush 30R- Has anyone ever replaced the speaker in their Crush amps .... Hi guitkrazy, hi Randy, I am thinking about changing the stock speaker of my 30R as well. But I am not sure yet which I should take. Some...
