    Yeah, I'd take a Rocker 30 with onboard reverb for sure!! I think the only Orange valve amp with reverb is the Rockerverb/Thunderverb series. Great amps, those!

    Love the Micro Dark. Sounds big and full through my 2x12. It's great for recording too. Just plug in and crank it up!! I keep it as a backup. I could gig it, no problem, because everywhere I play I run through a PA.

    I checked Orange's website. The sole combo with reverb is the Rockerverb 50 MIII. A superb item, indeed, but nonetheless with a weight at 36.2kg :eek: and a cost at 2399E :confused: (thomann.de). Very different from the Rocker 30... :(:)

    I haven't seen a Gretsch with that style cutaway before. What is it? Looks great.

    Valve all the way. Subzero valve amp. Made in china. Its a clone of the Fender blues Jr. Made loads cheaper. Wiring layout is identical. Replaced the tubes and speaker. Now running Mesa Boogie tubes, through a Celeston greenback speaker. It sounds great. IMG_20180803_071544826.jpg

    Here’s my humble setup: G5420 through my board (including Dynobrain, of course) into an Egnater Tweaker 15. Cab is a Randall 2x12 converted to open back and loaded with a WGS ET65 and a Veteran 30. Options include plugging into my Vibro Champ XD or my 90’s vintage Roland BC60 Blues Cube.

    It’s the (infamous) Gretsch 6120N - the New Nashville model. It was made by Gretsch for a short time between 2000 and 2002, and had the unusual Florentine cutaway and thinline body (1.75”) while retaining the classic 16” 6120 body size. I found mine in 2013 and it soon became my main gigging guitar. I replaced the stock pickups with TV Jones Powertrons so it’s a total rock machine!

    A tweed deluxe and a Goodsell Champton which is a tweed champ/princeton mash up! I love old tweeds, think my next amp will be a tweed super if i can find a good one.
