Picked up a 70's OR 80 pics only !

Post by jojo68 » Sun Oct 21, 2018 9:13 pm

These have been on my bucketlist for awhile. I used to have a 74 OR 120, but traded it off a few years ago. Got an excellent deal on this OR 80 I couldn't pass up. Digging it more than the OR 120, it breaks up sooner. Sounds killer, has great cleans and can get pretty knarly too ! Sounds awesome with a fuzz !

Those original pics only look so nice!!!!

Can you get to crank that one? I know your band is pretty heavy going, but wondering if the OR80 is still too much?

I assume your OR120 was a bit too much?

I'll have to see what it's like at band rehearsal. I have a feeling I may only be able to barely crank it at practice and use a fuzz. We are really loud, but yea, these are freaking LOUD. The OR 120 was super clean until I dimed the volume and that was too loud for my jamroom and most venues we played. I'm hoping I can at least crank it at gigs.

Looks great.

Would love to see some pics of the transformers and the circuit internals.
