Re: what is the highest gain Orange in production atm?

So what are we hearing at the notches? Clipping at different frequencies Jondog beat me to it. Yes, just a point when the cumulative clipping raises more than at other points. I wonder if the extra clipping added by the 1st ECC83 triode causes the following triodes to clip even more - similarly to ...

Re: what is the highest gain Orange in production atm?

The gain stages are all in series, they are not on/off or switched independently, what comes out of one is fed into the next.You can adjust when each begins to clip to a point through design, but they are always producing signal. Something unique to modern Orange amps is the use of a dual gang pot ...

Re: what is the highest gain Orange in production atm?

So you're both right, is what I'm hearing. Personally, I'm having an interesting conversation, and learning a few things. If I've been laboring under a delusion, it seems to be a fairly common one. There does seem to be more than one way to achieve cascading gain. For instance, if you have 2 overdr...

Re: what is the highest gain Orange in production atm?

My phrase "second gain stage kicking in" is probably oversimplified, but it seems adequate to describe what I'm hearing. Yes - some amps are more linear than others. With the RV50, or R30, you reach points on the gain control where the dirt level jumps quite a bit over a tiny fraction of the rotati...

Re: what is the highest gain Orange in production atm?

You can plainly hear where each gain stage kicks in. I suppose that's the point where the output of one stage becomes the input of the next stage, thus increasing the gain. That's why it's called cascading gain. This is my understanding of it as well, though now I'm second guessing myself as Les Pa...

Re: what is the highest gain Orange in production atm?

All the amps with 4 gain stages are tied for most gain. Like others have said, I barely use the second stage. Somewhere between the 3rd and 4th hashmark is pretty much perfect. If you play metal, you probably go a bit past that. All the gain stages are on at all times. Your signal will flow through...

Re: OT: anyone watching USA v Eng FIFA Women's World Cup right now?

I'm not a huge soccer fan, but that was a great game. Riveting. I'm not really concerned with celebrations, just the level of play.

Re: TH-30 Volume spike

Could be the volume pot. Might need spraying out or replacing.

Re: Any using a Wampler Tumnus ?

My Archer work incredibly well on both channels of my TH30, no problemo, but it's not adding any distortion. I've never used it as a distortion pedal.

Re: Any using a Wampler Tumnus ?

They work great with Orange. My clone is set up to be a boost at lower volumes, but the louder you crank the amp, the more distortion starts creeping in with the shrinking headroom. I think they're essential.

Re: OR15 or another amp?

I love my OR15 but I wanted it specifically because it was a single channel amp so I can control it from the guitar. If that's not important to you, the Rocker 15 is a real humdinger.

Re: OR15 Better with Zero Pedals?

I have zero problems with the loop in my OR15. I don't use a ton of gain, though. It's dead quiet, and doesn't seem to be altering the tone in any way.

No problems with mine. Try replacing the 12at7 tube.
