amp addictive

By shaps, 23/11/2014
I could optimize this amp by using a EHXAY7 in clean, the rest will be JJ tesla, demonic power is a 2x12 Celestion g12 heritage, using a NOVA SYSTEM in excellent effects loop. I do not use equalizer, while at midday the sound is. The variable power can play his studio to the average concert halls, without worry.


simple configuration for lazy like me, this Orange eat all the pedals without problem, as long as you place them. It also respect the sound of the guitar.


The clear, which is the recipe (ax7ay7 in clean and split the gibson LP), to its monstrous distortion very easy to get, I walk all the records of old school rock. I love U2 play well also with delays, rev etc that standarts ZZ TOP. Contrary to some opinion, the TH30 is very versatile, especially associated with a good pair of Celestion greenback. The sound is more modern with V30 I liked least.


After years of VOX AC30, this transition ORANGE for 2 years, it turns very robust since used daily or ERfKE 40 concerts, just a change of control without bias .Of lamps more versatile than AC30, and cheaper, I do it again this choice because he never betrayed situation.

Good quality / price ratio

I think a lot has already been said on this head. It has 30w lamp: 5 lamps for the preamp, 4 power.
In addition, this head has two channels (clean / dirty), an effects loop but no reverb and must be added to the footswitch.
Power is 30w but can be decreased to 15 and 7.5 w.
Clear channel amp has only 3 settings: volume, bass and treble. In channel "dirty" we still 3: gain, volume and shape. the shape is a kind of equalization of the poor ...
A line output would not have been refused but do not forget that the head only costs € 800.


Use of this amp is simple, very simple, too simple. Simply plug in and turn the knobs. Obtained a "good" very easily but I think the result is often impersonal and this is for me the biggest problem with this head!

I think this amp is best suited to beginners or people who have no desire to take the lead to get her a little more successful.


The TH30 be pretty good at it why I buy. To rock, blues, metal it can go but if it is not versatile. However, the little he does, he does it very well!

Then the "clean" channel saturates very quickly which gives a very nice little crunch but it can cause problems for not having a clean sound.
Furthermore I very quickly abandoned the "dirty" channel for an overdrive pedal Maxon. It was too violent for me and the lack of adjustment here is really felt.


I use it for 3 years now. I bought it at the time because I could not make me better.
Its strong points are:
- The price / quality ratio.
- Its easy grip.
- A "good" its easy to get.

Its weaknesses are:
- His great lack of versatility.
- No line output, reverb and true EQ!

The quality / taken ratio is very good, but I think this amp quickly becomes limited when you want to go further in the sound.
With the experience I do not have that choice. I orienterais over to a rack that best meets my expectations but this is not the same budget!

Excellent plug n play amp that combines true grit and true versatility

Everything has already been said
a good place for both real channels, effects loop, but also the available powers (7.5, 15 or 30W) and the change of grains (and thus the potential it generates): The 15W obtained from 4-2 EL84 powered does not sound like the 15W obtained by dividing by two powerful but feeding 4 loupiottes power.
One point less for the perfect but stupidly optional footswitch
Clarification: I am original lamps not looked at what it was probably nitpicking but felt no need to change until now.


His guitar is put in, it sounds!
However, the dirty is easier to understand immediately that clean: with Gain, Volume and shape adjustment playing on the mids was immediately full of sounds under your fingers without tweak. On the clean (a real Clean!), The interaction between bass and treble is a little thinner to understand, and will depend quite terribly your guitar ...
For the rest, in use in the apartment 7.5W all volumes 0.5/10, but for the power reserve, it is not the ideal use ... in fact the power section needs to be a minimum loaded ...
In the other direction, 30W are big watts, so no problem: for example, repeated on a fairly fatty register, drummer, bassist and another guitarist, I'm between 2 and 2.5 / 10 the volume of dirty, and 1.5 on the clean.
Small defect more annoying than really penalizing: a rather marked difference in volume between the two channels. A control knob equivalent volume on both channels, the Fart clean sheets when dirty is "normal" ... Think about it if like me your sounds clear, crunch and distortion are those of the amp.


I walk in registers ranging from bluesy to metal guts hairy ...
Two shovels: a (good) Gibby faded SG 490 but with original covers (large positive impact on its incidentally) Schecter Blackjack ATX C1 and with active seymour patators but not that
a baffle: orange ppc 112 Celestion V30 Original
First observation: the amp is very respectful of the guitar that motorized. it is even possible to rediscover his guitars so it highlights the personality of each.
The clean is very good first: it is a real clean that you can push hard enough before it distorde (in 30w, and the Schecter falling by 10% micro volumes). The grain is English of course, but it is a harsh sound less dry than a Marshall ... Subject to grind both EQ knob accurately and taking the time to see their interactions, you can go from something quite nice jazzy ultra slamming thing ... I insist on both EQ knobs firstly because I never got something clean with extreme settings (I'm between 4 and 6/10 on both parameters), and secondly depending on the guitar setting is not the same (on the schecter it quickly becomes so dark bass grow quickly pass 5/10 on the gibby is a bit the reverse).
The dirty is more than good, it's a treat: with a personality very "orange", it will easily sound bluesy English dug up metal hairy with equal success. Headroom makes it all absolutely still remaining musical. it is (but it's a story of a critical taste), I got used depending on the desired register stroll the shape of 3/10 (blues, rock to slash etc) and 7 / 10 (heavy to metallica, through all sounds saturated rock and independent). I never go below 3/10 because it gets pretty dull, as I do not frequent the range from 7 to 9.5 which removes more than it brings into the mix. on the other hand to 10 of Rammstein or fear Factory is not bad!
Accuracy: the beast is completely pedal friendly (in my case in front RMC wah and chorus / flanger + analog delay in the loop).
Accuracy 2: a precaution I put the preamp section in the loop of a clamp noise, but it should be noted that this head is silent! leave it with pleasure feedback service game, but no buzz, hum, or other, despite levels therefore gain. Appreciated! I am using more than the noise clamp to calm the ardor of the SG.
Precision 3: I have long considered switching to a 2x12 cabinet (Orange PPC, NOS ...) but the ppc 112 jostled by the TH30 has largely forget about me!
Accuracy 4 with a Pod HD (or any other simultruc) in the effects loop to bypass the preamp, and the condition that the POD HD is properly used, it also works with the fire of God!


Used in repeated weekly for 3 months, I am absolutely delighted.
I have long questioned between several models (orange dark terror or OR15 or jim root, DV Mark Little 40 etc) and I am very happy with my choice despite Chinese manufacturing, I have a much closer grain Thunderverb big brother that low-end orange sounding suddenly advantage as amplified preamp as well as real amps chunky.
The key now will be in the long term ... if it takes a long time, I have found "my" amp.

plug 'n play that sounds!

Head delivered to choice 30, 15 or 7.5 watts for s' adapt to all situations. For settings, c is could not be more simple: two channels, one clean and one dirty. To clean the three knobs: volume, bass and treble. And the dirty, three knobs also: shape, gain and volume.

The amp has no effects or reverb c is sound crude declffrage. There also has to not switch over to it to buy more. Always annoying, I think.


The settings are extremely simple and a manual would serve nothing. You turn the knobs and it sounds live. Guitarists wanting a truly accurate equalization will be disappointed but the amp is not made for that. And even if it has only one setting on the dirty, the panel between the 0 (and his very British Open) and max (and compressed sound very hollow medium metal) of Boiton Shape and reserve monstrous gain the yield still versatile.


I play this amp with a fender pawnshop 72 and EC50 ltd. And both say that c is the day and night. D its a very cool and perfect for flat metal with ltd, b have much warmer and round sound with the fender. The guitar amp great respect branch even with the gain at max. on the other hand it is clear on the amp is oriented rock, hard, blues, metal. Ca ca crunch quickly and sends severely when slap a big deal.

the proposed 30watts are becoming extremely powerful because it allows me to rehearse with a drummer really strong typing a meter from me.


I used the last 9months and c is a choice I would do eyes closed. Robust and well finished, the amp sounds better than a lot of other head sweats I've tried.
