Orange AD30HTC

Guitar Amp Head

Since the amps with the unconventional colour returned, they have been fighting for their niche in a hotly contested market with great success. Just like in the past when countless stars used these amps, Orange builds amplifiers with an unmistakable sound for people who know exactly what they want.

The AD30HTC is an amp head with pure tube sound in the classic Class A circuit (with 4 El84 amp tubes), which guarantees harmonious sounds with an impressive spectrum. The "TC" stands for "twin channel", where a lead channel available, ensuring sustain rich sounds even at lowest volume.

Separate tone controls for each channel allow flexibility, although it would be difficult to elicit lousy sounds from this amp head! 30 W Class A power is loud enough for most applications.

  • Master volume, bass, treble, middle and gain control per channel
  • 4 EL 84 Power amplifier tubes
  • 4 ECC83 Preamp tubes

Dream of an amp with boundaries

Manfred209, 09.11.2009
Clearly! An ABSOLUTE dream amp the Orange has built for people who have found their style !!! Even despite the considerably lower price compared to eg the 100W orange varieties, this amp holds more than just!

30 watts - as little as some rogue would think ....... but of because .... this 30 watts so you from the seat that you look 5x on the number to convince you! Absolutely impressive and GLASSKLAR and STABIL in all areas of the sound, of course, especially if you tear our friend;) !!! I have a medium sized club (with Marshall 4x12 JCM) heated with these 30 watts without any acceptance (compulsorily because of technical problems;) ... and am, in this case, not only since that evening, in a square, orange crate, and dream at night From her;)! Wonderful, dreamy cleansound, wonderful crunches and a real vintage RockNRoll distortion which is unparalleled ... delicious, delicious, delicious !!!!!!!!

Sure, this 2-channel amp, in which even the most demanding, pampered and "noble" guitarists should not miss any processing quality / features / ease of use or sound - what is offered is not only for the international professional area Secret tip - also borders .....

... and the nat. By the assembly with 4 El84 power amplifiers in the sound. Who plans his trash / dark / heavy metal project or similar. So to power ahead has the wrong amp! Here in the distortion area, these limits are clear, however, the distortion sound is for people with a little gain gaining in TRUE, straightforward, uncompromising vintage / punk / rock-n roll sounds that have the same grimace every time the amp sounds - EXACTLY the right! Yes, I am happy with every gig and every rehearsal:) !!!

Orange AD30 Twin channel for a double juice

NeurZ, 09.06.2011
Color that does not go unnoticed, sound well typed, the Orange AD30 HTC amp is a fully tube amp equipped with 4 preamp lamps type 12AX7 and 4 lamps EL84 power for a power of 30 watts. Sufficient to be heard in live or repeat situations.
This amp version of the AD30 offers 2 twin channels which each has its own 3-band equalization as well as a gain and master setting. However the 2 channels are not quite identical in terms of sound. The second (the top one) has a little more gain than the first. This allows to have a clean type config on the first channel and overdrive on the second. These 2 channels are switchable to the foot via a footswitch which is unfortunately not provided.
At the rear we have 2 outputs in 8 ohms and one in 16 ohms and a connector for the footswitch. And that's all ! No effect loop, the amp is made to make plug and play.

Side sound, we have a sound with its own character it sounds old Rock which is by no means unpleasant.

I advise putting a preamplifier GE 5751 on the cannal 1. This allows to have a little more headroom. Indeed, with dual coil pickups it can cruncher fast enough.

To conclude, if you like sounds typed british this amp will delight you. The only downside is the footswitch which is optional and the lack of an effect loop.
