Just got an OR 120 ! I love it ! I haven't been able to crank it much yet, but I plan to use it at my gig saturday.It has some ugly replacement knobs, which I will replace.Here's a couple of crappy phone pics :

I really want to play one of these. These were out in the 90s, right?

They did reissue them in the 90's, but this one is from the mid 70's.

I have a matamp gto 120 that I gig with regularly, as well as an orange rv 100 with kt88's.I recently ran both of those together at a gig :twisted: But yea, I don't really get to open them up all the way at gigs. I'll probably run a fuzz with the OR 120.

I think you will love this amp, but don't stand directly in front of it. Better yet, you should put a warning label on the cab to that effect.

i borrowed my friends OR120 for the rehearsal we had this evening, i must say....it blows my rockerverb 50 to bits :) i had to push it since i dont have dist/OD pedal with me. just guitar cabble and amp. holy sh***!!! its bloody loud! i had to put the cab in the next room and almost close the door to not get killed by squared sound(coolest attenuator ive tried hehe ) :D


its an awsome amp!!

I'd like to hear what you think of the OR120 compared to your Matamp GT-120...

How heavy is it?

I sure would like to try one out for myself to see how the F.A.C. works. Good luck with it and protect your ears!

Those are some beautiful knobs. :) I'd love to take 'em off your hands!

The tolex is in remarkable condition for a 70s model. Right on. Now get the new knobs of thee orange website (they sell em now) and restore it to glory!
