Came back to orange again.

Very long time no posts. Still popping in here and there.

Picked up a mint tiny terror combo 12” on the old eBay locally for £150! What a result.
Forgot the beauty sound this amp has with a telecaster.

Has a G12H 30W speaker 70th anniversary. Thought they all had V30’s so that was a nice surprise as love a heritage over a vintage 30.
No idea how old it is :roll:
It’s Chinese and serial number is 00454-0612
Keep seeing info about yy/mm but that don’t make sense so if you got ideas then let me know
Cheers guys

Nice to be back :twisted:

Nice to have you back in the fold!!

Do you still have you Marshall amp too? Was it a DSL?

Your tiny terror is from June (06) 2012 (12). The G12H30 was standard for them until Orange switched to the cheaper voice of the world speaker. They never had a V30 for some reason.

Hi,

It was a Marshall jcm 900 mk3. I converted a 1x12 combo In to a 2x12 home made vertical combo.

I put them up against each other tonight and the orange had the Marshall hands down in pure thickness of tone. I was shocked to be fair how thin the Marshall sounded.
I love my 900 and this made it feel and sound small at similar volumes. I only used them as they stood so terror with one speaker and Marshall with 2 and the orange still sounded fuller and bigger.

Thanks for the date info also I should of looked at the last digits and not the first :roll:

I tried the TT combo with that speaker once and it was glorious. I backed out of the deal due to a few rips in the tolex which I still regret (didn't start understanding "mojo" until recently hah). I haven't seen one for sale in these parts for a few years now.

Nice find!
