Re: Red Plating

Cathode biasing isn't the 'automatic' biasing many people believe. It does 'self adjust' to an extent giving a certain amount of leeway for slightly different spec valves, but valves which are way off normal spec (for whatever reason) may still lead to problems. I have a slight memeory at the back o...

Re: Rocker 15 or Crush Pro Cr60

Be interested to hear which you guys eventually choose, hopefully after having tried both out. Haven't tried the R.15 yet - no rush as my R.30 isn't going anywhere. Do like the idea of the amp, especially the 'bedroom' settings, but don't 'need' it! Have tried the Crush Pro 60 though and was very im...

Re: Crush Pro 120 direct recording

I don't see why using a load box wouldn't work. It's doing the same thing a speaker does. Something like the Mesa Cab clone. Some of them are ONLY for valve amps. My THD Hotplate is one example. From the user manual: Q. Can I use the Hot Plate with a solid state amp? A. NO! The Hot Plate and the po...

Re: Vintage EL 84's in Dual Terror ?

"Don't have enough voltage?" Well, the amp supplies the voltage to the valves, so I've no idea what that means... :wink: LOL Some amps (actually a lot of amps running EL84) run them quite hot. So whilst your not hurting your amp running it with RCA's, you may not enjoy the longest life for these val...

Re: TH30c Channel switching not working

You need to take the amp somewhere else and try it. That is the symptom of low voltage out of the wall outlet. When there is a low voltage situation, only the second channel will work... Hi Billy. Wasn't that just a silly issue with some old AD30TCs. Is it really still a problem with more modern am...

Re: JRT 8 ohm operation

You checked the manual? :wink: https://orangeamps.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/Jim-Root-Manual-V16.pdf Yeah, run a single 8 ohm speaker from the 8 ohm output. Use proper speaker cable. No it won't lower the output wattage. Unlike solid state amps valve amps will put out their full rated power into...

Re: 6550 in Rocker 30

Also love the (JJ) 6CA7 in the Rocker 30. Mine came with them stock.
Don't think those JJs are exactly typical sounding 6CA7s though, so can't comment on others. But these ones really do give the amp some proper grunt. :D

Re: LP / tiny-terror /MIDS

Hi Aj_TinyTerror, and welcome. Do you have the same with that guitar through other amps? I'm wondering if it is to do with pickup height? May be that they are adjusted too low / far from the strings. Then you'd indeed have too little low end so that the upper frequencies would dominate. Might just b...

Re: Where is the Fuse on Crush 20 Amp ?

Hard to believe that switch isn't located inside the amp where idiots can't get to it. Yeah, well there is a whole new generation of idiots these days taking things to whole new depths. Time was when that sort of thing wasn't needed unless you let very young kids play with your gear... :roll: Andy ...

Re: Where is the Fuse on Crush 20 Amp ?

KO is almost inevitable. Everything would have got double the expected voltage and it isn't surprising something burnt.

That guy owes you a new amp - simple as that! :evil:

Re: New cab day. Anyone have a crest/emblem? I just bought this 2x12!

Looking closely at the photo, that just looks like residue hot gun glue. That won't come off with water. I removed one of the badges from my R.30C. (The one right over the center of the single speaker, getting in the way of a mic! :evil:) Used a sharp hobby knife to very carefully pick away all the ...

Re: Overdrive or Distortion pedal to replace Gain preamp?

My take on what Nick was saying on controlling it all from the guitar... Yeah, I'd suggest getting used to using the controls on your guitar first, just like they did 'back in the old days'. Some of us still prefer it to just stomping on a box anyway... :D Basically you use the volume on the guitar ...

Re: TH30 newbie, need advise.

'Perfection' is overrated anyway. Rolls Royce once tried 'perfecting' the old torque converter automatic gearbox they were using by polishing up the blades inside. Even though nobody would ever see them they wanted them beautiful. Trouble was they just didn't work as well - the slightly rough surfac...
