Well, I'm pleased to say I've made quite a step forward with this amp :)

I decided that the best place to start might be to change the preamp valves and at first I thought I'd wasted my money as...

As there seems to be a lot of Orange wisdom here I wondered if someone could help me.

I play in a Rock covers band and I recently picked up an Orange TH30 head and Orange 1X12 cabinet. I've read...

Orange CR60C Review

Like most people I've been a real fan of valve amps for many years but unlike most people who seem to write reviews for this amp, I was looking at the CR60C to replace a more expensive valve amp for...

I've looked into this a bit more and I'm still unsure I'd change from valve unless the solid state option is genuinely good but there are some I came up with that I thought may be worthy of further...

Valve amps I've owned so far are:

Marshall DSL401 - Nice Marshall tone but too much lag on channel switching and it was a pig to boost for solos.

H&K Switchblade - Some great tones in there but way...

I think what I mean by consistency is that the valve amps I've had always need to be really pushed hard to hit their sweet spot and I think I'd find life a little more straightforward if the quality...

Solid State Options

I've been using valve amps for a while now with a range of good quality pedals. I love the sounds I can get but I don't like the relative fragility of valve amps and their inconsistency can be a pain...

I am indeed using the one NS-2 before the amp and in the loop. I may look at going back to an ISP Decimator by itself in the loop as it was both more effective and easier. I check into the solutions...

Having spoken to both EHX and Digitech, it turns out that neither the Pitch Fork or the Whammy are harmony pedals at all, despite what is claimed in their videos. The Whammy even says 'harmony' on...

Pitch Shifter/Harmony pedal

The core effects I use are Wah, Overdrive, Distortion, Compressor, Chorus and Delay so I'm looking for something new to inspire me that could get a reasonable amount of use in a Rock covers band. I...

Ibanez S420 would be better than the RG as it has a better trem system. From Jackson, either the Adrian Smith or SLX Soloists would be good options.

That Charvel looks awesome. In many ways it's a mahogany, single cut version of the Jackson Soloist I'm selling! With all that mahogany, does it seem similar to a Les Paul tonally to you?
