GENERAL ORANGE AMPLIFICATION SERVICING WORK - CARRIED OUT ON FOUR ORANGE AMPS

Hello everybody out there. OK, Orange gear. Mmmmmm, let me see. What can I tell you about these? Well, firstly all the Orange amps that I have worked on over the many years have always been extremely well built, very solid, great wood & metalwork, all of which makes them pretty heavy beasts too! Even some of the earlier models used PCB’s (we won’t get into this!) but they too seem to be pretty tough & reliable.

Their early/original amps always did make the true RMS power, and in-fact most of the time…well beyond! I have found that, although all the later products are of just-as-good build quality in all ways, I nevertheless have had some disappointment when comparing actual outputs against some of the stated RMS power ratings.

However, I have since spoken in great depth to Adrian Emsley (he is the designer & tech-guy at Orange….he is a good, helpful guy), and as far as I am aware most of these early issues have now been corrected.

As I always say……enjoy the article & photos. Thank you. John.
