I was playing:
Schecter c1- hellraiser
Peavey 6505
Mesa 4x12

Then I switched out my Mesa for an Orange 4x12 and I can't get that
low-gain warm heavy tone any more. I'm playing the same guitar and head, but my settings for my head (for the Mesa 4x12) were; Gain: 3, Low:4, Mid:8, High:5, Res:5, Pres: 5.
Now with the Orange 4x12 I have the Low and Res at freaking 10 and my Mids almost scooped. I'm struggling to get that warm low gain tone again, but I can't find it with this new cab...

My tubes are kind of low but do you think it would make that much of a difference???
What do you think?

put some mids in there..... i don't understand y it is such a hard concept to understand. by taking out the mids your getting rid of the body of your tone and eliminating the ability to really cut through the mix.

nonetheless, it may be a difference in speakers. just tweak things until you find what your looking for or get close. if nothing quite helps, get a 10 band eq to help fine tune your tone.

Can't you switch back to the mesa and sell the Orange if you prefer the mesa? Anyway, I would just sit down with the amp and play with it, messing with the EQ, until you get the sound. And if you actually can't, then you may have to buy another Mesa cab. Are they both closed backs? And what speakers are in the Orange?

You've obviously never played a 6505.

TS: get your old cab back. I'm thinking there might be such a noticeable difference because you went from an oversized cab to a standard cab.
