I have an Orange Overdrive (Model OR 80, Serial No. 719) and I'm having a really hard time determining when it was made. The only photo I phone of it online was at http://www.jamesstevenson.info/images/t ... %20amp.jpg and this page describes it as a 1970s rare model, but I'm pretty sure that my amp is a reissue. The voltage dial on the back has four options: 100, 120, 220 and 240. Any info on this model is greatly appreciated.

So is it an OD80 or an OTR80?

I could be wrong, but I think the OD80s were indeed '70s and then Orange sorta reiussed them with the OTR80s in the '90s.

Not the picture you posted. That's a head from the seventies.
