Re: Used market gotten greedy?

This drives me crazy y'all. Why would I buy from a 3rd party for new-with-coupon price and no buyer protection? And if I'm selling and the item has any cosmetic defect, folks expect me to give it away for free.

Re: Orange VT1000 Test Poll

I've got one. First one i bought was DOA. I returned it to the store and bought another one which I used a few times and then it mostly sat. What i discovered was that old power tubes that I had changed out (but kept for some weird reason) were actually in fine shape and maybe power tubes last longe...

Re: Pickup Wiring Help

Usually you can find a wiring diagram from the pickup manufacturer. It sounds like the two twisted together are both ground and your other one is hot. I've installed lots of 4-conductor dimarzios and 2 wires go to ground. Definitely try to check the manufacturer diagram first if possible. I'm unfami...

Re: Micro Dark as preamp

I haven't tried my OR15 at practice but I used to have a 15w egnater tweaker and that wasn't loud enough. Maybe I'll try the OR15 though. What I really need is a rockerverb!

Yeah not remotely loud enough but the tone was nice and it was cool to go to practice with just a guitar and a backpack. I'm glad I tried it though.

Re: Micro Dark as preamp

I'm back from practice and the micro dark by itself didn't cut it.

Re: Micro Dark as preamp

Ok I tried it and it didn't work out well. I don't think it was the micro dark's fault though. The other amp is a laney gh100ti and it has a parallel effects loop. It might work better with a series effects loop, but I don't have an amp with one anymore. I'm going to see if I can get away with just ...

Micro Dark as preamp

Sorry if this has been covered before. Can I use the micro dark as a preamp by running the fx send or the phones out to the fx return of another amp? I ordered the micro dark the day it was released cuz it seemed cute and affordable, and I loved my OR15. I've had a love/not love (never really hate) ...

Re: Orange amps vs. other amps

I like orange because all of the ones I've played seem thicker AND sweeter than other amps I've owned or played. The OR15 doesn't have a bad setting at all.

Re: Shocker: Cabs matter

I just got a PPC412 this weekend because all my amps sounded awful through my marshall cab with g12t-75s but they all sounded pretty good through my PPC112. I have to say the PPC412 sounds great and I wish I had gotten one sooner!!

OR100 how much gain?

Hi everybody, first post here How much gain does an OR100 have? Orange specs say it has 3 gain stages, while the rockerverb has 4. I've been wanting a rockerverb for some time but it's a bit out of range for me since I've been unsuccessful at selling my jcm 800. I've seen some OR100s for sale used f...
