    Here can I find a replacement for the stand-by switch on my Orange Tiny Terror?

    Is that one of the off/standby/on switches? As far as I know, that is an Apem 644H/2, which shouldn't be too hard to find. Mouser carries them, probably lots of other places. Apems are great, heavy-duty switches, it's all I use - they are, imho, much heavier duty than Carling.

    Don't take it as gospel, though - I don't have an Orange amp here to look at.

    It's actually a 15 watt/stand-by/7 watt. It's a DPDT on-off-on switch but it doesn't have a brand label on it :/

    Not an Apem. Probably an SPDT; any good, robust, high-A switch should work. The specs are printed on the side of the switch.
