Re: replacing tubes on my AD140 HTC

The rectifier has nothing to do with gain. You would not benefit from changing it in any way. I have been enjoying the sound of JJ KT77's in my AD140. Also, a combo of Tung-Sol 12ax7 (input) and Electro-Harmonix 12ax7 (phase inverter) seem to give me a good complement to the KT77 set. If you aren't ...

Re: Opinion on this delay...

I've got the malekko 616, and I like it, but the delay gets lost as your guitar gets dirtier. Seems to get absorbed with the compression. amazing sounding pedal, though. I ended up getting a digital delay for my distorted parts and use the 616 for clean/slightly dirty stuff.

Re: AD140 volume drop

If the volume drop was present on both channels, the power tubes would be the suspect I'd look towards.

Re: AD30 channel two - the pre-amp question

preamp tubes can definitely change the bass response of your channel. Not as much as a change of speakers or power tubes, but they can give you a tweak in the right direction. I really like using Tung-Sol 12ax7's for the input valve and have had some good experiences with Electro-harmonix in the pha...

Re: Orange new endorsees!

I suppose the endorsement won't be doing Mark Linkous any good. What a shame.

Re: Thunder 30

I'd really be surprised if they start production of their Full sized heads (non-lunch box) anywhere but England. I may be surprised. I know price points play a large role in the production of anything, but still... I'd be swayed from purchasing it if it's not made in the Orange homeland.

Re: effects loop?

you can buy kits to mod an effects loop into your amp. It actually only puts the effects signals after the preamp and before the power tubes, so they are right in the middle of both tube sections. your local tech may be able to help you install it for a fee, but short of that, you'll just have to ge...

Re: my or120

Hey Wrath, Without knowing more about what and where the resisters, it is hard to say if they could be the cause. It is possible, though, that if someone got in there and modded your amp they could have done something that could be the cause. I don't know if I've ever experienced my preamp tubes mak...

Re: Orange AD140HTC Bias Level

i bias my ad140 around 35mA i believe, just like most el34 recommendations. yes, it is true that the largest amount of volume increase is in the last 45 degrees of the volume knob. you shouldn't expect your amp to have the same volume as other amps at the same settings, it's a different amp. what ca...

Re: Selling my PPC412 and buy a PPC212 instead?

The PPC212 is amazing in the world of 212 cabs, but it's not a 412, and in the world of 412 cabs, the PPC412 is a soul crusher. You will experience loss of bass response with the 212. That may be a worthwhile trade in your situation. It's really about weighing the priorities of your sound. I play ve...
