Orange Overdrive - vintage
Orange Overdrive Amp:
for guitar and bass
This is a very rare offer: over 30 years old, in an absulute mint condition, completely serviced by one of the best german Valve Amp specialists.
When we received it back from him he told me that this amp is a real seldom and very powerfull, secure Amp that beside the unique Sound is an original hancrafted device - not comparable to what Orange produces and sells today. The Amp was bought used Amp in 1977 and used until the early 80th, then it wasn´t used until 2 years ago. Friends used it for 1 year for rehearsal only - until it was serviced 1 year ago for over 350.- Euro ( Valves & Condensers + complete measurements ) and then again not used since. Mint Condition ! No rust, no parts broken, even the Chrome part are like new. Only the cover darkened by the time and the black edgeprotections have gone, but those can be organized from Orange or other Suppliers as a spare part .
Not sure what year it was build exactly, but for sure before ´77, eventually it is one of the rare first ones of the series - but we can´t guarantee it. We have a very rare Orangemixer here which was signed 006 by hand - a typical way to give a device a serialnuber before it really went into series. As this amp was bougt by the actual owner in ´77 our Tip is that this one is from around ´72, but sure one of the first build. The Amp will be delivered with the original parts which have been taken out when it was serviced and completely re-calibrated. The amp was used for Bass, very clean and crisp with a lot of power, if you want to use it for guitar it´s a
blower - very soft to very agressive as you can vari the amount of ( very beautifull) distortion at any loudness.
As we are sure that this baby is running perfectly when not run without cabinet or with wrong selection on the Ohm knob we also give a 1 Year Guarantee on it.
Will be shipped by UPS only - we can calculate the shippingcosts if you give us details on the shippingadress - please ask ! Is around 44 pound
The Amp can be tested in cologne.
