What Orange amp do you have?

I love what I've heard of the Dual Dark and came close to ordering one a couple times, but I can't get past that single knob eq on Channel B. That would drive me nuts.

Currently just a Thunderverb 50 and a PPC412. After a ton of buying and selling this was the one that stayed and just “fit” right. Would love another OR15 in the future, with the Jim Root mod wired to a switch to change between voicings, I’d also love for Orange to bring back another BIG iron amp, perhaps a Thunderverb 200 Mk2.

I'm thinking the Retro 50 is giving me all the beef that I want in my sound

Good build quality on this one ^

It's got a good vintage tone to it and seems to love pedals right in the front end (all I ever run is maybe an OD and a delay).

I just did a 100 ohm cathode bias resistor and 6n14n tubes to my Brent Hinds, and my god! 150 ohm isn’t enough juice. 120 is great, 100 is Van Halen, especially on 7 watt. The whole amp gets browned like a variac on that setting. May go as low as 75ohm with a DPDT switch for different bias at different voltages

The B+ is about like a Z Wreck, and the good doctor uses the old Russkie EL84’s with the 100 ohm.

If you’ve never had the 6n14n’s, do yourself a favor and try a set. They are head and shoulders above JJ’s and are basically 7189 spec.

7 watt, 100ohm, dimed EQ, gain @ 3 ‘o’clock, 8 ohm out into a 16 ohm V30 is Van Halen mode.

So delicious!

current orange amp is CR120 head - so much fun. great tone, great bargin. lots of vids on how the gain staging knobs function and all sorts of other tones you can do with it, grab an eq pedal in the fx loop to add presence frquencies and u have a very affordable rig doing everything from aping vintage marshall to modern scooped metsl sounds.

i got this used cr120 head for 290, sold the orange brand double footswitch for about 40 (as i have all sorts of cheap and homemade channel seitching boxes) and voila, $250 cr120 head, amid the covid pricing insantiy.

anyone that says its gain channel sounds bad is just a person that really doesnt like the rocker or more modern orange tone, because this what i think of when i think orange tone

oranges previously owned:
rocker 15 terror - amazing amp, kinda regret letting it go, sold when i got the cr120. may revisit this amp someday

micro dark - hard rock to metal head’s super affordable back up amp to bring to gig. EXCELLENT beginner’s head for the metal head in the house.

original run of tiny terror. this is what started the orange train for me. owned for around 6 years

Hi All,

I was hoping everyone could post pics of their current Orange set-up! I'd love to see what everybody has in their arsenal!
