Orange Rocker 15 Combo

Post by PaulieD » Sat Aug 10, 2019 1:54 pm

Hi Gang,

I just purchased a Rocker 15 Combo 2 weeks and 95% of me loves it...except while playing in the Natural Channel I am learning quire a bit of Tube Rattle. Particularly bass strings A and D 11- 13 Frets...I have tried several guitars just to rule out some fret noise and all the same so I'm sure that it not an instrument issue. Additionally I plugged into another tube combo I have - different brand / model...No noise.

For $700+ I expect that this should not be an issue this early in the game...Any thoughts?

Thanks Paulie D

A microphonic valve cam happen any time.

If that happens only on the clean channel, you should only need to change V1. If your amp is brand new, your valves probably are still under the 3 months warranty period, and your dealer could take care of that.
