Hi, sorry for being a noob and my first post being a request...:D


I aquired an an OR120 head from a family member a while ago, and have just been trying to find out when it was from.

So... The serial number is 015612

It has no master volume, and a slave on the back.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.8)

Pictures would help...

... but go to www.orangefg.com and try to match it up. You'll be able to get a good ballpark idea of when your amp was made.

Sadly, serial numbers are little help as records were never kept.

welcome to the forum by the way!

Funnily enough Geerts field guide (http://www.orangefg.com/) also now has similar info! ;)

Anyway, TDA your amp appears to be a 1978 model, and like own '78 'Overdrive' model it has the
IEC type mains connector socket which a few people still don't believe Orange ever used in the '70s.
They clearly did on some of the late '70s amps!!!

BTW those pics of yours are <font size="5">HUGE</font id="size5"> TDA. Not only the screen size - though its always nice if they are resized to fit on screen which saves you having to search for the end of the line, and saves me having to keep my lines short......!

Your pics were also huge in file size too which is kind of pointless.
Resized pics (jpg files) when compressed to give files of a few 10s of kB will look ALMOST EXACTLY the same
on screen as ones of several hundred kB.

If you haven't got a handy graphics programme to help than Irfanview is free and good:

I'd reply to this, but those pics are blocking my keyboard from my hands getting at it. I may starve to death if I can't reach the X to close the window...they've blocked the door, and both windows in the room as well.
