OT: I Died for a while, I'm back

Post by Bandeapart » Mon Dec 05, 2016 4:55 am

Hi to everyone that is still here..I've been away for at least 6 years - had a difficult time logging back in and all that, but yeah, who isn't dead? :?

Any significant Orange news I've missed in that time? I sort of fell off the playing music wagon. Got sick of gigging around, hauling equipment, dealing with bandmates, dealing with awful clubs and all that so I went on hiatus and became more of a record collector than a record maker and did the college education thing, now I'm back into writing and playing but I'm sure I've missed a lot. I stumbled across a Chappers video on YouTube of him playing some new Orange gear I've not seen before which is what reminded me of hanging around these parts.

tl;dr - I've been gone for 6 years and out of the loop, what Orange stuff is new and significant?

Six years huh? Well, I got married four and a half years ago!

And there's an Orange/PBR tap handle!

Where do I get that tap handle? Did you make it?

I feel ya OP. Had a bit of a breakdown during my last band. Posted some giant touchy feely emo stuff on here and got some advice on both sides. I did end up taking a break for nearly a year. There was no gear hauling, no band mate drama, no midnight shows playing to the sound guy, oh man... Was so nice. I just sat at home and did nothing. Well a bit of cleaning and cat petting, but aside from that, relaxed. Really amazing how much stress a band can add to your life. Especially if it has the wrong members in it.

I was doing great until a friend at work asked me to fill in for a their drummer who was out of town. "Ah sure what the heck". Played for an hour with those guys and the fire was back haha. Started to get a bit sad about not being in a band. Missed the few good parts about it. Last moth my last band messaged me and said he we kicked out the d005h want to be our drummer again? I said "sure", and that's the end of the story.

I think the other folks covered the new products, plus I always loved Telecasters, but not as much as my LPJ :)

I have about (5) of these tap handles to sell. The bad news: they're $50 each. We never planned on selling them but they're so limited that's what I'd have to sell them for.

I've had 2 kids in the last 6 years. (well, my wife kindly gave birth to them on my behalf..... :lol:)

Funny, I'm don't have as much time to play these days..... Though i still manage it.

In the last 6 years, I've also bought 2 Orange AD15 (sold one), and a Rocker 30 to complement my RV50.

Whenever I get to play, it pretty nice......
