NAD Orange DT30 and Cab
« on: May 16, 2013, 10:00:53 AM »
Picked up a Orange Dual Terror 30 watt and an Orange PPC 4x10. Anybody used one of these?
Not really used it in anger yet, I will have to wait till Monday at practice. But at low level volumes it sounds great.
I've been looking for a simpler amp for gigging than the Marshall JVM for a while, so when the offer of this came up I jumped on it. The only down side is, it hasn't got an effects loop, which I think I can probably cope with, but would be nice to have.

Heck, I didn't even know what an effects loop was for until about 10 years ago.

Congrats on your new amp. Keep us posted.

Interesting, how does it sound compared to the Tiny Terror? I like that little one.

Sorry so delayed on reply on this amp, my Mum passed away so I've been a little out of sorts.
The main channel on the amp is the tiny terror Robert, then it has a cleaner channel but it's not got much head room for clean playing at volume. Turn up the gain on the channel it does have a thicker tone than the tiny terror channel.
Loved the tone of the amp but found I really need a dedicated clean channel and an effects loop. So I bought an Orange TH30 and I think I've found my nirvana. Simple 2 channel amp, that pumps out some serious db's. The only thing about it is, it's dark or bassy. I added a mxr 6 band eq to my board, edged the bass side down and it's now a total keeper.
With the 4x10 it's sounds amazing. Tight, punchy but with a compression that you can feel from your insides out.
I've kept the dual as a back up for gigs, it's that small in it's bag, no lugging at all.
