    Orange AD15-12Published on 06/24/09 at 08:20
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    15w tube combo Class A (two 12AX7 and two EL84, GZ34)
    Celestion Vintage 30
    A 16 ohm output, an 8 ohm
    Gain, Bass, Med, Treble, Volume, and power switch stanby
    No loops, no preamp out, the basic home basic.

    UTILIZATION

    Setup could not be more simple, you turn the knobs and it sounds if you put the bass and treble to zero med with gain and volume turned up no sound.

    Good overall sound whatever the settings, the opportunity to refine his playing precisely on the set and lights (+ or - gain, aggresivité, heat / round) but impossible to make drastic changes in personality.
    It's not the point either.

    Sounds pretty good at low volume but the sound really s'épannouit when …

    Sounds pretty good at low volume but the sound really s'épannouit when pushed a bit.

    SOUNDS

    He has a strong personality but remains versatile in my taste, or of the muffled slamming clean, dynamic or soft crunch of the next attack, to stoner / rock fat.

    Somewhere between vox and marshall but definitely vintage.

    I play with my Flying V 7 string epiphone rise Benedetti.
    The sound tends to blur when you push a little too gain rhythm.
    I use various pedals to boost the cash and it pretty well.

    With a clone TubeScreamer can grow up well revered hardcore rn'r to Converge and to metal very fat (but then it takes more than TubeScreamer.

    I would increase my mind when I received my attenuator.

    edict:

    I go back a little on my mind with the experience of two years of use around.
    I have experienced quite a few config lamps on this amp:
    power was originally provided with JJ EL84 that sound very good in the midrange but are a little behind on the bass, excellent for rock sounds bright or saturated.
    Then I tested the Sovtek Russian sorted, slightly more powerful than DD but with more bass and treble med senior who can be aggressive depending on the settings.
    Very good choice for anyone wanting a sound solid and robust.
    While browsing on ebay, I found our qqes tubes including RCA not bad but probably more comfortable on Fender type amps, the Mullard probably because his fully cooked dish and a pair of Valvo / Philips EL84 that I use and yet seem to be the ideal compromise between power, definition and warmth.

    In preamp: as in most tube amps is the lamp in V1 that allows the most important changes, however, allows the v2 to score a little more sonic signature of the v1 or to "correct" a little defects defects if there a.
    Bulk v1:
    Tung good soil, lots of gain limit too see, lots of presence and accuracy.
    JJ ec803s big gain, less presence and precision than the tung ground, I like less.
    Ei elite for me the best big win and good precios but more character and finesse that tung ground, so called weaker and more breathless, it can be a problem for traveling with his gear bcp.
    A good reference for Sovtek lps for those who want a sound typified marshall / orange vintage high gain bleak, high volume coupled with the saturation of amplifiers that must be daunting.
    Harma 12AX7 and 7025 ehx, high gain sounds good but no real flavor to this amp.

    Here for lamps high gain, that it starts to saturate at about 3/3.5 knob gain with this type of lamps, for more flexibility select lamps gain medium or low.

    V2 in my choice is focused on a so-called vintage Harma ECC83 Mullard type, it is rather neutral, and rather pleasant little clips and most important is precise without losing his body so perfect in this position.

    Whatever the config lamps used, it retains the vintage character and rather versatile amp but this helps to refine its use in going further in one direction.

    Important: EL84 vintage lamps are not quite the same layout as the current production EL84 player to pin 1, it is not a problem if used on the vintage to vintage but on this amp and probably on part of EL84 amps lately must be taken into account because this pin is grounded as provided on the tubes lately but not the vintage
    The amp does not risk anything but you're almost on your toast or our vintage tubes often quite expensive and difficult to find and it's not cool.
    The trick is to use an adapter or socket for tube noval and remove or disconnect the pin 1 in question.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought this amp to play at home with a real tube sound and I'm delighted.
    It's a great amp and studio work, in short everything you would expect of a great single-channel tube.
