hi im new here,
ive had an original 215 reflector and a 4x12 in my studio for the past 10 years. i recently had to move and decided that the 215 is not of any use to me anymore.
would anyone here know if these are sought after? or should i just stick it on ebay? its to big for me to keep in my house, if ihad space id keep it as i do actually really like it, its just now its sitting in my living room taking up space ive decided to see if anyone would want it.

im planning on contacting some specialist guitar equipment dealers this afternoon.

anyway basically im just wondering if anyone here would be able to help me decide what to do with it??

thanks for you time.

Edit.. thanks to who ever scanned in the old catalogues,
ive found out what it is,
its this....

I would like to believe there are bass players on this forum that would kill to lay their hands on a cab like that. But as you cannot sell on the forum you could either sell it on the Matamp forum or eBay and just mention on this forum that "You've seen a real cool item" and "Check ut this link.." :D

Oh don't worry. You have't done anything wrong.
You are more than welcome to talk about your gear here, and it's ok to say that you are going to sell gear, also link to sites like eBay.
You can even talk prices as long as it's not about the current line of Orange products..

Cool cab. The Orange logo is strange though- I wonder what year that was made...?

im not sure, its in the 1973 catalogue. but the exact year i have no idea. i bought it from a freind 10 years ago but i dont know how long he had had it and he bought it second hand. i used it on all 4 of the Mistress albums i did over the past 5 years and it sounded brilliant hooked up to a orange 4x12.

According to the logo, and the corners probably not a 73' but a late 70's, maybe 77,78,79 because these logo and corners seems to be the same as the ovedrive serie two !
Try to date the HPs that's the best issue.

Oh, and those are my scans by the way!

It looks to me like a cab that was made earlier but not sent out and badged, cornered etc later in the 70's. The Orange font has that late 70's look to it although the jack plate looks earlier 70's. Not sure....
