Re: Just a thought on scratchy pots

Since using Deoxit Gold fader lube I've found scratchy pots are a thing of the past (no I'm not a spammer!!) :o in amps and guitars.

Re: Orange Model RO 100? Serial Number 752

I agree with Billy

The front looks like bog standard early/mid 70s OR120
From the back I thought that it was going to be a GRO100 (with the G obscured by the pot ). It has Matamp style black transformers.
Pics from inside would tell a lot, as would the pic from above of the transformers and choke.

Re: DIY Room Treatment Project...

Intrigued?

On what did you base your plans, design and layout?

I am very ill informed on this subject and might have to do some reading!

Re: Hello, I’m new here

Hi
The clips I have heard of these sound very good for an SS combo.
Hope it hits the spot.

Re: NGD, but a problem

I agree, if the guitar feels good and plays well keep it - the electrics are easy to sort out. If you know what you want and can solder you can buy all the bits. Otherwise you can get something like this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Les-Paul-drop-in-wiring-harness-upgrade-with-USA-components-handbuil...

Finally written it up ORST Preamp

https://i.imgur.com/CufPyDt.png I hope it is ok to post the schematic of an amp first built nearly 50 years ago, not sure where we are on intellectual property after this elapsed time. Please check it over, I am pretty sure it is correct. A friend, Ned Babb has a similar era amp that he has had dra...

Re: Orange Crush 15 blown resistor

Given absence of schems from Orange (I could find a CR15R part schem.) and the variability in the support for this end of the market, all I can suggest is flipping the board over to see where the tracks go to. It looks like it took a significant hit, suggesting a short circuit - guessing a component...

Re: Orange Matamp ORST 50w, ORST 100w?, OR100

Yes you are correct. The contemporary OR100 and ORST from 1970 both use the same choke and pcb. A 100w uses T148 (G9978) OT, T149 (G9979) choke and T147 (G9977) PT A 50w ORST uses T151 T149 (G9981) choke and T150 (G9980) PT I have a whole bundle of pics of these. The only other difference is the Dri...

Re: Matamp 2000 - pics and clips added

Only clips of Mark playing (Andy did the recording on his phone) I was to busy watching and listening to record Andy. Good news is that WA will have a full Orange backline for the coming tour which is fantastic. I hope I am not breaking news but both Andy and Mark will have two mini stacks consistin...
