Re: RV50H MKII Problems (Long story)

I managed to get to get it off by unscrewing the handle and banging it out from the inside. So I'm not sure I can really compare this to the diagram posted on the last page. Does anyone see anything that looks weird? Seems like there are too many wires here: http://i926.photobucket.com/albums/ad104/...

Re: RV50H MKII Problems (Long story)

So prying the back off a PPC412 feels like an impossible feat. Got any tips for doing it without destroying the tolex?

Re: Orange Amps and Big Muffs

My feeling about Muffs and fuzz in general is that if you can run your amp with no break up any quality Muff or Muff clone should be able to be EQ'd to sound great as long as that is the sound you want. Running any type of muff/fuzz on top of even a moderately broken up/driven amp tone has always be...

Re: RV50H MKII Problems (Long story)

I kind of like the notches. I find myself trying to replicate settings with no luck. Would be nice if I could just clikclickclick my way to tonal bliss! I appreciate your affinity but turning those knobs makes me welcome nuclear winter. Between that and the mid knob being absent from the clean chan...

Re: RV50H MKII Problems (Long story)

I still haven't gotten around to opening up my 412 but look at this old post from the Technical forum: https://forum.orangeamps.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=12313 They seem to be describing my same problem and it looks like bad, out of phase wiring has been pretty common with Orange cabs. Let's just hop...

Re: RV50H MKII Problems (Long story)

Hey Hey! If you are comparing the clean channel to another amp you will probably be disappointed. I used to think my Rocker 30 clean channel was killer until I jammed with my friend who was playing a blues JR. Wow did my clean sound bad. Of course the distortion channel blew him away :) He kept sto...

Re: RV50H MKII Problems (Long story)

Do you still have the carvin combo? It is a combo right? What's the speaker wattage/ohm rating? Can you manage to plug carvin speakers into your RV100 speaker output? Still have it. Never wanted to lose it just because it could be a great backup and the cleans are awesome. It IS a combo. 2x12" 100 ...

Re: RV50H MKII Problems (Long story)

Sorry to read that. Something must not be right somewhere in the set-up. I’d check the wiring in the cab. Or take your amp in to a store to try a different cab. Yeah, lately I've been really thinking it could be the cab. Though, I do have a Hovercraft Falcon head and putting that through the cab do...

Re: RV50H MKII Problems (Long story)

What a shame. :( As you say, it's possible you're not an Orange guy, but the way you describe it, there's something wrong with your set up. (Even though you may still not be an Orange guy despite that) As you mention the cab being a possible culprit..... did you get the possibility of playing your ...

Re: RV50H MKII Problems (Long story)

So its been a long time. I ended up sending the MKII in exchange for a brand new MKIII 100W head. I felt too disappointed by the lack of quality of the MKII in relation to the B-Stock guarantee of "functioning like a brand new product" of which this was a complete failure. They did the works on the ...

Re: Fantasy/Hybrid Model Orange Amps

I'll go rob several banks and get right on that. Plus I've heard atrocious stories about ABY pedals and no one can seem to agree on a good one. I've admittedly never had an opportunity to ABY any amps. However, a single amp in the $2500 range with all the above features is a nice fantasy. Running i...

Thanks for the comments, guys. Man! What a ride. And indeed, THIS IS how you get a loyal customer for life.
