Orange amplifier dating

Let me say it right away this is not a versatile amp it has basically one sound, and depending on the volume it gets crunchier as you turn it up.This is the deal, put a Les Paul through it and you will sound like Jimmy Page.

50 watts out of an open back 4×10 cab housing some very well suited Eminence ceramic speakers.

Forget the Master volume and dirty channel – use this amp as if if were a non master Super or reissue Bassman (w/ reverb) and get your distortion from a pedal you like.

Although it is outfitted with four EL 84’s, its no AC-30. Later on Peavey, through its dealers, started selling Russian (Sovtek) tubes as replacements, but these tubes biased a lot cooler then the Chinese ones did.

And unlike many other EL 84 combos the Delta is not cathode biased, so when you change tubes the amp must be rebased. Also if you want the amp to sound good all night long, have a tech install a fan to cool off those overworked power tubes.

#7: Marshall 1974X HW New about $2250 This amp is a faithful reissue of the 18 watt single 12 inch combo from the late sixties.

The amp has two channels which sound virtually the same, one of which sports a great sounding tremolo.

I dunno I think this amp could actually live up to its name.

#6: Vox AC-30CC New w/ Al Ni Co Blues 00, std model 00 The amp I am recommending is the currently available Chinese made Vox AC-30 combo with the Al Ni Co Blue Celestions in the 2×12 configuration with a street price of about 00.

Peavey told me awhile back that 6 months of steady use and you should change the tubes. #2: Gibson Lab Series Used price- 0 or less These Moog designed amps were very well made and quite dependable, but probably misunderstood for its time.

Lots of different eq settings were available, which made many guitarists feel (yours truly included) a bit overwhelmed.

It also lets you run the power tubes hotter or colder as well as the voltage going to the filter caps, this option gives you the option of running the amp tighter or with a bit more sag.
