well, I sold my OR15 and PPC112, because meh.

and i funneled those funds (plus a few other Benjis) into this gorgeous beast...

Tom @ Hoffnine Cabs in the UK restored the shell and sent it over in absolutely bomb-proof packing... the packing materials alone are nuts! Huge A+++ for them.

I still need an AD5, an AD30 single channel, and an AD200B and I'll feel like the collection is complete!

Let us know when you get to try it!!!

I've got the AD5, it's neat little amp.
Perversely, my AD15 is more house friendly... the combination of excellent master volume and separate gain control really help.

I find the AD5 is good clean, but with no master volume, any crunch is too loud at home with the kids around. A shame, with no rectifier, single ended, it sounds pretty different to my AD15 - more like a mini R30 than a mini AD15..... a lit rawer, in a very pleasing way. 8) not sure I'm gonna keep it though.

aaaand it has to be converted to 110V... Has a 220/240V switch, not a 220/110. shite.

hopefully I can get it dropped off with the tech on Friday. GAH!

Congrats! That is one sweet looking (and I'm sure killer sounding) amp. I love white amps and cabs. I have the Rocker 15 & Brent Hinds Terrors with a Marshall 412/V30s, EVH 5150 III 212, & EVH 5150 III 112 all in white. There is just something about amps in white being so elegant and stands out! Good Luck!

Orange is my first choice of amps (having 5x Terrors) and my 2nd choice in amp color following white.
Heads: Orange Rocker 15 Terror, Brent Hinds Terror, Signature #4 Jim Root Terror, Dark Terror, Micro Dark Terror - Cabs: Marshall 412 Celestion Vintage 30s, EVH 5150 III 212 & 112 Celestion 70th Anniversary
