NAMM '11 - Orange Amplifiers DIVO TubeSync

January 21, 2011
PG's Chris Kies is On Location at the 2011 NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA, where he swings by the Orange Amps booth. In this segment, we hear from Orange's engineer Adrian Emsley about their new device -- DIVO TubeSync. The DIVO TubeSync technology automatically adjusts the bias of the output power tubes to ensure their full potential is realized. It monitors the amp's performance and will isolate faulty tube failures, by running them at half power until the tubes can be changed. The DIVO system also increases the reliability of amplifiers by maintaining the optimum performance of the tubes by performing an 'in circuit' test every time the amplifier is powered up. DIVO technology opens up a whole new dimensions in tone options allowing for the first time ever the ability to mix and match tubes. You can experiment with an EL34, 6L6, 6550, KT77 or any other tube type all at the same time in the same amp. With DIVO the Tubes are automatically matched. DIVO will extend the lifespan of your tubes and never again pay a tech to re-bias. DIVO can be easily integrated into any almost any guitar tube amplifier. Orange amps will be offering this as option in their new Rockerverb 100 which will be "DIVO Ready." For other Orange amps and most other brands Orange offer the DIVO Orange Tube Sync OV4, a complete standalone unit.

Video Review - Orange TH30 Head

November 19, 2010
PG's Jordan Wagner walks us through his latest review of the Orange Amplification TH30 head (also available in a 1x12 combo), which is featured in the December issue of Premier Guitar.

The TH30 head is a 30 watt head running on EL84 power tubes. The simple control layouts of Orange amplifiers have always been a design strength. In the case of the TH30, that philosophy remains very much intact. Each of the amp's two channels—which you can select using a front-panel toggle—is controlled by just three knobs, which means you can dial in both clean and dirty sounds with very little fuss. The Clean channel features a Volume knob and Bass and Treble EQ controls, while the Dirty channel features Gain, Volume, and Shape knobs.

The amp's overall wattage can be cut from the maximum of 30 watts to 15 watts, using the 3-way standby switch on the front panel. And if you're in the mood for some low-wattage, greasy-amp goodness, another rear-panel switch lets you knock the wattage down to a tiny seven watts by bypassing two of the four power tubes. Rounding out the modern options are a series effects loop and a jack for an optional channel footswitch.
