Well I just could not resist - New Amp Day

Recommended Posts

I had been tempted to buy an Orange OR15 for a while but never saw a good deal locally until last week.

 

This head and cab, a 2x12 with Celestions V30 was listed for $700 in new condition, I offered $650 cash and offered to pick it up. A sweet, sweet deal, even included cable. Retail is $1,450 on this.

 

This thing rocks.

 

Without further ado.

15w is all you need unless your Motorhead

 

Nice deal.

Or unless you want to play clean and not by yourself [biggrin]

Thanks guys, this amp is awesome, definitely a different voicing from my other amps which is a good thing.

 

It looks like the speakers are not broken and and that makes a different on V30's so i'll keep on playing through it an crank it in the first opportunity.

 

Lately I have been running my other amps through a Weber attenuator even though they have drive/gain knobs as they sound more open.

 

This Orange has a hard clipping voicing, not sure how to describe it, I'll play through it as is and then use the attenuator to see the difference.

 

This thing looks awesome, i'll probably flip the orange logo on the cab since I am planning to leave it on its side.

 

The other nice thing about it is that I can use this cab with my Marshall and Mesa heads for even more variety of sounds.

In the 70's we called it "clank", "clanky". Orange and HiWatt did that, Fender had a couple powerful amps that were that way too, Dual Showman, Dual Professional. Super headroom, super mids, it took three Big Muffs in a row to get any grind out of them kinds of amps!

 

Nice amp! Good luck with it.

I don't find the cab overly heavy is just hard to carry by a single person because of its dimensions. I do not gig so it's alright but if I do take it out for a jam I'll use a dolly.

I flipped the cab logo and didn't bother with the silly crest. I think it looks better this way.

What’s the funky looking Vox(?) down to the left of the orange in that last pic with the badge flipped?

 

That’s a 1964, maybe 1965 Vox Student

I agree, looks better and less space. Now for a demo for us all? msp_flapper.gif
