A fast look says that is about the price you will find on ebay stores or at Musician's Friend. I'm not a fan of Orange, they're kind of like Marshall's younger less talented cousin. What, are they the guitars? I did have to return the first one for an odd noise. Just lift the Label off the rear bell cover and undo the one screw. Me and my father appeared to have discovered the issue that plaugues thousands of sold and unsold and even Vox amps being made at the factory to this day.
It exceeded what I hoped I could get it to do. Good luck and post about your choice and experience. Not sure what that's telling me, but it's an easy fix. I have a Deville and I love it but it's more than most people need. But these new ones main issue is this the Cylinder tube retainer.
I was hoping you'd chime in! You can return it if you dont like it. Your zip code will be used to confirm that your items qualify. I like the simple interface and easy access to the delay, reverb and chorus built in. I assume that when you are in Manual Mode you are still using the amp model you have dialed in, just that you are setting the gain, volume, treble, middle and bass yourself. He was sure that I was doing it wrong.
With the amp's built-in modeling and effects, I don't understand the need for adding the loop. Tone wise, I think it's limited by the cheap pair of headphones being used. Can't really crank it farther up if you like your music a little loud. Be careful not to bend the pins in too much or you will crack the glass! Very midrange-heavy, but sounds great in a mix with a band. During the 1960's, Vox was one of the largest musical instrument companies in the world and their products were utilized by almost every major pop music group. I am fairly intrigued by this amp.
Orange seems to be more heavier rock and metal. The other, is the warranty, or lack thereof. These amps combine all-new sophisticated modeling technology with a multi-stage tube pre-amp circuit reproduce the unique distortion, touch sensitivity, and the response that is characteristic of classic tube amps. The issue is the damn cylender retainer. I also had problems with ground-loop hum as soon as I connected the amp into my mixer, so my conclusion is that the best way to record this amplifier is to mic it up.
And of course, this being me, here is some video goodness. We can't say that we were not disappointed that Korg had gone to china because we would rather not support their brutal oppressive government. I personally own an Orange tiny terror and a Vox ac15. It' pricepoint is at an odd place. It amplifies microphomics and rattle. Then the original Nighttrain came out so I traded for one.
He said if I turn the master volume up full then I will be likely to blow the internal fuse, which you have to take the amp apart to get at and change. Orange amps are great but cost much more to get an equivalent to the ac30, such as the Rockerverb 50. Just look for a sound I want, listen to a sample to make sure, then dial it in to my amp. Contact mods if you have a complaint. I personally wouldn't bother with the 10 just my 2 cents.
But we're talking tone here so our minds were open. If you're not using manual mode, then the knobs are bypassed for all intents and purposes, and you're hearing the factory presets, for the amps being modeled. There are four effects sections in all, the first of which emulates pedals connected before the amplifier, while the remaining three deal with modulation effects, delay and reverb. If you do not agree with something someone else said, please either have a polite discussion or do not comment at all. Those speakers are the only ones that will give you that true vintage Vox sound.
Lots of sounds I like and will use. The ac15 blows it out the water as far as tone and how versatile it is. This is something I read on the Valvetronics forum and tried out for myself. A much warmer tone with a lot better definition and smoother distortion. Haven't gotten any reports yet on how he likes it, but I'll bet it keeps his girlfriend and their neighbors happier. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
Changing tubes solved the issue for about a minute and then the tube rattle continues. The idea is to get more of a valve sound out of the amp. The case is plastic, and probably won't take a huge drop or other beating. I've had this for a couple of weeks at this point and enjoy every time I play it. I also decided I wanted an amp I could upsize and upgrade the speaker.
