In a sea of spam... a New Amp/Cab Day is born!

Post by MarshallGibsons » Fri Oct 12, 2018 3:16 am

So far, so good. This was a special order for another customer, that flaked out when it came in. Balked at the sticker price. One guy bought it, came back within a week... too much amp for him.

Brought my pedalboard in, we plugged into a Orange 2x12 and spent at least 2 hours playing it. A bit darker than my usual Marshalls, but extremely articulate and just screams, when you open it up. Nothing like any of the SS Orange amps, I've played... which I actually really like.

It reminds me a lot of a Plexi, to be honest.

With my taste in guitars, I'm not surprised its voiced well for them. Asked them to stash it for me, on the promise I'd buy it. 3 months later... it came home.

I had tried matching it with my 1960AV, loaded with Marshall Vintage. Wasn't really feeling it, so I tried running it through a Mesa Boogie 1x12 Recto cab. That was the match. The Orange cabs sound real similar to me... so I traded an old Tweaker 15 head and the Mesa, for a PPC412.

Invested in a Hotplate as well, as I think the CS50 sound better pushed. Give up a little bit of tone, but not so much it bothers me.

Congrats!!!!!

So you like LP quite a bit then..... good match with Orange amps (ok, a LP is a good match with any amp!)!

Looks like you have a really nice set up. I've heard the custom shop in a store, and recorded live.... it does sound fantastic.

Very cool! Impressive setup.

Side note...why ask a store to special order something without knowing what it will cost? Seems kinda lame to back out. Worked out for you in the end though!

Yeah, I like LPs. Think I have 11. I keep thinking I need one more for a clock... so its gotta be 11.

The CS50 is a beast. It really likes to be run hot, as well. It pretty much knows Crunchy and Crunchier. Which, is fine by me.

I see it a lot. They had another customer order a Custom Shop True Historic '57 Black Beauty, from another store. She backed out, when they called to tell her it was in. They're typically people, that have a history of spending money, so they'll order something, and let you pay when it gets there. They've been burned a few times. Usually they just send it back to the original store. If its something like that, and they know a particular customer might be interested, they'll float it there way.

I actually had to wait a week for her final "no," before I could buy it. That's OK. I got a better deal. She was paying the price from the other store. I paid the local price. :D

I liked Gold Tops. Have 2 now... 3rd is on the way. Well, I'm most likely going to buy it. I've got a Tribute I never play. I always buy one, thinking I'll play it... then it just hangs on the wall. I want to play my guitars, not look at them.
