Hallo,

I got a Orange Or-120 with the serial number: <b>11112</b>

Does anybody know in which year the amp was made?

Any specification about this product year?

Is it a old (original) one or a reissue?

The frontside only got beside three bog knobs two small EQ-knobs.

On the backside of the top it is written: made in england

Hope you guys can help me.

Cheers,
aba

Hi aba. Welcome! :)

Probably 1974, so original.

More about some of the knobs in the two articles here:

Worth having any amp that old properly checked over by a good amp tech. Have them replace the big power filter capacitors if still original or likely to be older than 10 or 15 years as they are the things that will most likely fail on you.

Then just buy some ear plugs and enjoy!!! :D
