White back panel on OR120 - help please

Post by hell_awaits » Tue Oct 12, 2010 6:14 pm

Hi, guys!

I need your help over this particular Orange. The owner says it's built between 1972 and 1974, but what puzzles me is that this Orange has white back panel... :?
I am not an expert in Orange amps, but I didn't see Orange with white back panel... :oops:

You can see it here:

Did you ever come across anything like this? And also, do you think it is perhaps too pricey (1000 Euro) for the state it is in - front panel scratched etc...

Thanks in advance! :)

That looks more like faded orange than white to me, but the lighting is weird...

Bad photography indoors. That chassis is orange- look at the lighting on the front panel- the white has orange tints from bad camera lighting and probably a cheap digital camera.

Thank you for your time end effort :D

I already have "baby" Orange (TT), but I wanted to get myself a real one :)

I'll take a friend of mine with me (he's an amp tech) to check it out and probably will buy it. Do you perhaps know if it's possible to buy exact replacement front panel for this amp (I'd try to make it look like it just got out of the Matamp shop in 1972)?

Thanks again :D

I think that would be more or less impossible ti find, but why would you want to have a brand new front plate when the tolex still is quite worn?
Oh, and this amp isn't built by Matamp.

I'm speaking out of my a$$. Yours might differ.
