AD30 Graphics Only

Post by StratusX » Sat Oct 20, 2018 12:51 am

Since the graphics only are making a comeback in the recent releases from Orange over the past few years, I’ve often wondered if they’re ever going to make a graphics only AD30. Also since the knobs are stacked and staggered, how would they even pull it off?

Anyone else thinking it’d be cool to see?

Honestly, every orange amp should be pics only from now on. It is just so much cooler. Also, giant knobs like the OR50.

I would probably put the pic above the top row and then put a diagonal box around the eq, volume, and gain. The diagonal line would suggest that the offset knobs correspond with each other.

Also, more 212 combos with top facing controls please.

I like the original graphics of the AD series, it was unique from other Orange products, clean, and managed to not look cramped with 10 knobs together in a pretty small area. I thought it looked bad when they "updated" it the first time with the modern graphics and I think it would look similarly bad if they did it again, it just doesn't work as well as the original style.
