Re: CR120H Weird Volume Issue

Well odd. If not pushing the amp hard it (I’d say definitely) isn’t a speaker problem. Don’t know what it is though. Personally I’d take it back - sounds like a definite amp problem to me. Can happen very occasionally, up to Orange /their dealer to supply an amp without issues. I’d think it is a one...

Re: more cabs to one amp

Get an OR120 - they had a 4 ohms output tap! :D Orange is very conservative. They say you must match impedances. Period. No exceptions. Some amp companies say 2:1 and 1:2 mismatches are ok. Some amp companies even encourage experimenting with mismatches - changes the tone and distortion characterist...

Re: Clips: AD30TC, OR-80, and GRO100 shootout with Hiwatt and Vox amps

My ears said the same as Billy. AD30, OR80 and DR all sounded great in the clips. AC30 sounded the weakest, but I’m sure it isn’t. What struck me though were the similarities not differences in tones. Orange, Hiwatt, Vox? Just goes to show that a good player can get their own great tones out of most...

Re: Rocker 30C help please(update after gig)

Gigged with the R30C last night,big improvement in the sound of the Amp after new valves,but sadly I think I might have caused a new problem :( Because the 30C sounds so much better with my ext.cab I risked running the Amp with its 16ohm speaker & the cabs 8 ohm speaker from the 8 ohm taps & about ...

Re: Selling Ad30 for Rocker30??

Sounds to me like the R.30 would suit you much better. I’ve compared the two here many times, but basically the AD30 is one of the most compressed 30 watters out there, the R.30 one of the least compressed with a massive (loud to soft) dynamic range. The gain range is massive compared to the AD30 an...

Re: Orange TH30 crackly noise issue.

Yeah, sounds like a valve problem. First I’d try swapping each preamp valve out (and the PI slot valve) with a known good valve. Failing that the power valves...

Has anybody actually contacted Orange on this? Maybe an idea??? :wink:

They are usually great at helping with any issues. I'd be interested to hear what they say...

Re: speakers / cab question

I'd suggest thinking about grabbing two Mesa Celestion MC90s. They suit big Oranges really well. Better than either of the ones you were thinking of. Think more an H-30 sort of sound, and they are very efficient too so 2 in a good cab would slay!

Re: Variations in early to mid 70s OR120 amps

I know Nick doesn't like the master volume Oranges but I love 'em! I think they make the amp very usable and with the master all the way up, you can use the gain like a volume control and it's pretty close to a non-master amp then.... With Nick on this one. Yes, with the master up mine sounds great...

Re: R30 Natural and Fuzz

...so in this forum i've said disparaging things about the natural channel on my r30. the dirt channel is excellent and the more i play it the more i love it. i just rolled in a pair of gold lion kt77's and holy #$%+ what a difference - very plexi-ish. so after reading this thread this morning i de...

Re: Red Plating

Cathode biasing isn't the 'automatic' biasing many people believe. It does 'self adjust' to an extent giving a certain amount of leeway for slightly different spec valves, but valves which are way off normal spec (for whatever reason) may still lead to problems. I have a slight memeory at the back o...

Re: Rocker 15 or Crush Pro Cr60

Be interested to hear which you guys eventually choose, hopefully after having tried both out. Haven't tried the R.15 yet - no rush as my R.30 isn't going anywhere. Do like the idea of the amp, especially the 'bedroom' settings, but don't 'need' it! Have tried the Crush Pro 60 though and was very im...

Re: Crush Pro 120 direct recording

I don't see why using a load box wouldn't work. It's doing the same thing a speaker does. Something like the Mesa Cab clone. Some of them are ONLY for valve amps. My THD Hotplate is one example. From the user manual: Q. Can I use the Hot Plate with a solid state amp? A. NO! The Hot Plate and the po...
