I generally like Ade's ideas, but I don't see the big deal with hiding schematics. You might as well goop the PCB's if you're worried about people copying the design. Every amp is a copy of another amp, and it would only be copyright infringement if you copy the brand.

You might try sending them a message on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/OrangeAmps/
I contacted them via Facebook. Interesting enough I was sent a reply of " Contact our USA office". I told them that I did.

Waiting a response now.

So, are you an amp tech? As in, people bring their amps to you for repair?

Absolutely, been doing it for many years.

My Shop is called "The Cold Solder Joint" :)

I will get this one fixed, it just takes longer on an amp I am not familiar with without a schematic.

The customer will not pay for my "learning time" either. I chatted with him today and he is onboard with this issue.
I was hoping to get a head start since it seems to be a known issue on many of these amps during a particular time period. Later 2016- to early 2017.

edit - A few more bits of info since I was asked. I am 60 Yrs old, retired twice, once from the US NAVY and this past year from WestRock. I am here to support the local artists and students. The shop does not pay my bills, just my GAS habit. I am a member of a Volunteer Veterans band.
