AD30 Tone From Other Oranges?

Post by adkguy07 » Sat Dec 25, 2021 12:56 pm

I've been reading up on the vintage style tones obtainable from the single channel AD30H; as well as the twin channel version. For AD30 owners: Are there other Orange amps (I own a Dark Terror) that would do a fair imitation of an AD30 30-watt amp? From what I read, the AD30 is its own thing with an older vintage vibe based on a tube rectifier that produces some sag in its “feel”.

I think you could get close with a Rocker or Tiny Terror because the voicing is similar but the feel and response is going to be a lot different.

Id agree with the terror ... perhaps the dual terror would get pretty close ??
