I'm working with Cliff Cooper on a book about Orange. We are constantly looking for good clean photographs to use in the book. If you have any pictures of your amplifier (preferable at 300 dpi) and would like to see them in the book please send to rich@rich-art.co.uk.

Please be sure to include your name as we intend to give a full photo credit for those used.

Any material received will be appreciated and importantly only used in conjunction with the production of this book.

Thanks in advance - Richard Crediton-Hughes (Rich Art)

I will. I got a reply from him saying he'd be interested as it was a '73. I'll write him some speil with referenced info so he can cross check it with Orange themselves and hopefully i'll get in his book :)

Cool, he wrote me and told me that I would be contacted by the guy who wrote the book about Matamp. Seems like he got interested when he heard I had this earlybird.

Sent him shed loads of images of my OTR120. He seemed to like them. Would be cool if one got in the book but who knows, it would certainly make me a happy bunny.

As you said above the original address gets bounced back.

I got an OTR-120. It's an early one and seems a bit different to the later serial numbers (ie. it seems to be comprised of left over parts from the Overdrive series perhaps?).

If you want pics, ket me know. I know it's not vintage, but the OTR seems to be often overlooked in the Orange history.

I saw that head on the german bay quite recently. Told my bassplayer to buy it, but he's always broke..
