Don't Forget

This 30-watt twin-channel combo sizzles with the unmistakable sound of two Celestion Vintage 30 12" speakers.

The 30W Orange Amplifiers AD30TC 2x12 all-tube guitar combo amp offers channel switching, thanks to 2 dual-stage channels with completely separate signal paths. The result is like having 2 vintage amps in 1.

The AD30TC combo amp's Channel 1 has a thick, creamy, classic voice that barks like a Rottweiler when pushed into the tone zone. Channel 2 has a tighter, springy and slightly faster character with a little more upper mids and a bit more gain. The Orange AD30TC combo has consistently stood above the competition, as confirmed by professional users and reviewers alike. It retains the original vintage sound and uses a smooth electron emissions GZ34 tube rectifier-similar to the first original tube amplifiers made-and operates in Class A. This makes the Orange AD30TC amp a true force to be reckoned with when played alongside any 'vintage' classic and high price tag, boutique amplifier. The Orange AD30TC amp has proved to be so popular worldwide that its specs remain unchanged. The Orange AD30TC combo is fast becoming the new world standard for 30 watt Class A tube amplifiers.

The AD30TC-identical in specification to the Orange amp head-has 2 Celestion Vintage 30 speakers in an open-back acoustically designed enclosure. Orange crafts the cabinet from 13-ply high-density 18mm birch plywood to further enhance the amp's sound.

Celestion Vintage 30 speaker
The Celestion Vintage 30 Speaker recreates the sound of the original Celestion Blue with a new cone and a new coil assembly. Rated at 60W capability, the Celestion Vintage 30 handles massive overdrive tones with ease and scoffs at the extra heat generated by higher power equipment.

This amp is the sound in my head

By Joe Rogero

from Portland, OR

Comments about Orange Amplifiers AD Series AD30TC 30W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

I bought one these last year. As soon as I plugged it in it was love at first power chord. The tone is what I hear in my head when I imagine my perfect sound. The cleans range from dark and hauntingly beautiful to bright and sparkling highs It sounds great when it just starts to break into overdrive territory. When the overdrive gets thicker it has an old school punk type sound. I wish it had a reverb tank but it is pretty heavy already. Also there's no effects loop but don't let that scare you. It plays well with pedals in front of the amp. Try it out if you get a chance. It's one of the best amps out there.

Comments about Orange Amplifiers AD Series AD30TC 30W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

The sound of this amp the fact is does clean just as well as a dirty mean streak. Fender can make some beautiful cleans marshall some amazing dirt. But neither do both well. Only Mesa and Orange seem to be able to have this narrowed down. My only dislike is that it doesnt come with a foot switch which is something you would always want with a two channel. I would have given it a 10 if it came with that switch
Its a basic as it comes as far as bells and whistles. It does however have 2 channels with MID,Treb,Bass Settings unlike some of the Thunderverb amps. When I plugged it in and dialled it in it was that perfect sound. It makes the P90's in my Junior scream. it has such a growl the vintage 30's are my sound. Even my 335 is in love with this amp.
Ive always had vintage 30 cabs from orange usually powered by a Mesa Amp Trans Atlantic 15. The cabs are so well made I have never had a problem with this amp.
For an english made quality amp the price is good. yes its more than a HRD3 but it would eat a Fender combo alive.
