<br />Hi all!

This is my first post and I figured I´d join in as I´ve been visiting this forum on and off for a few months now. I´ve found lots of useful info on all things Orange here. Thank you for that. From what I understand you are a great group of people.

I bought a Rockerverb 50 head and a PPC 412 cab (in black!) during the summertime and I´ve been very happy with both. I own a Fender Deville 212, but I needed an amp that could do great overdrive tones too. The clean channel on the RV isn´t exactly Fender, but I like it the way it is.

I play in a few bands ranging from acoustic covers (90s rock) to progressive metal. I really like all kinds of music, but lately I´m been listening and playing the blues, some jazz, post-rock (or whaterver you call it!) and prog rock/metal.

English isn´t my native language, but I try my best. :)

Greetings from Finland!

Welcome to the forum! I've also gotten into post-rock lately, but I'm still having some difficulties playing it. It's just so different that I have a hard time figuring it out.

Thanks guys! :)

I need to get some new pics of my gear. I think I don´t even have a proper photo of my Orange half stack yet. I´ll do that asap...

I have a PRS CE 24, a PRS Standard 22 (my main guitar) and a Music Man John Petrucci 7 string. I want a Tele Thinline. :) Either a Fender or a Warmoth. I like the idea of building/putting together a guitar by myself. I don´t know if I have the skills though. I made a footswitch for my RV, but that´s a little different. :)

I like pedals too. My current pedalboard consists of Boss TU-2, Boss PS-5, Banzai Fireball 3, Line6 MM-4, Boss RE-20 and a Line6 DL-4. The Line6s and the RE-20 are in the loop. I can definitely recommend the Banzai. It works great with the Orange. Probably my favourite od pedal.

What I like about my Orange is that it´s got character. And a great sound.

I´ve been playing for about 12-13 years and I´m in my mid 20s now. I take playing seriously, but I have fun while doing it and I call it my hobby. It´s an expensive hobby, but I don´t mind. It´s a huge part of my life.

I agree you're most welcome, and I agree you've made a very fine first foray into the world of Orange. However, Orange gear should be Orange...call me old fashioned!! Enjoy it, but first spray it orange.:mrgreen:

Haha, that's one way to look at it, although I suppose we should welcome them now that we're virtually bankrupt. :x I'm using the time until prices start to grow to buy gear! Loads and loads of gear!
