Orange amplifier dating
I also very much liked the L5, a 2×12 inch version.
This amp was used by BB King for many years and it sounded great.
Also good for funk rhythm with a good on-board compressor.
These amps are very reasonably priced, but make sure you also get a service manual as this will confuse many an amp tech once he gets it open.
And for God’s sake get rid of that stupid master volume!
#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.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.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.It has a master volume and you can combine the two distictincly different sounding channels with a flick of a mini toggle. All in all this amp is a great deal for the $, but you better work out before you bring it to your gig, it will make your Twin Reverb feel like a Pignose.
