    I like your color scheme
    Did I mention that way back when I had a Perception Dancer whitewater kayak and it was orange!

    Thanks that explains a lot.. disconnect the speaker and take those screw out and the whole thing comes out so you can access stuff.. very clever.

    If it comes out and all the dangerous stuff is sealed up inside the metal casing I will perhaps feel OK changing out the tubes myself.

    That's quite a collection you have.. with that much Orange stuff you should probably have a T-shirt and coffee mug or something too.

    Thread with some internal shots of the Rocker 32 here: http://www.tdpri.com/threads/new-amp-orange-rocker-32.712575/

    Thanks, they actually sent me a free Orange footswitch and cable for buying the Rocker 32, even though I bought it before the rebate offer technically started--about $100 of stuff if you were to buy it. That rebate and one for the Rocker 15 are still running, until the end of June (just a free footswitch for the Rocker 15).

    Damn just ordered a foot switch. (Oops just realized that was a rebate from a specific vendor)

    GC gave me about $80 off MSRP on the amp itself.

    The rebate form only specifies "authorized dealers"--all the big-box stores have the same PDF of the form posted. Order up your free one too--you'll need it for the next Orange you get.

    Was that the '10% off with a trade-in' deal? If they have a 15% coupon right now, you can get them to match the extra 5% (I did that exact thing when I got the PPC212C).

    Here's my OR15. Absolutely love it and I don't even play high gain. Low to medium at most but still plenty of clean(ish) headroom at basement volumes.

    I have a Cannabis Rex in the Orange cab and a Red Fang in the Raven (absolute killer speaker).

    I've tidied up since...:oops:

    Very intrigued by the Rocker 15, and 32 also. How do you like it?

    I like it a lot, love the clean channel. That's what I used mostly so far.

    I don't have a Micro Dark anymore, but when I had it, I did this to it:

    Still have a Micro Terror, but you know what it looks like.

    I still have my Micro Dark. I added a PPC112 to my setup along with a TC Electronic "Hall Of Fame Reverb". This combination is a lot of fun to tweak. There are some cleaner tones in the Micro Dark; not just Metal. What I like is the ability to get some chime out of this little devil. It's in there.

    Thanks for the heads up on the Footswitch rebate on the Rocker 15/32.

    I got mine in the mail recently. Works great, just a little annoyed it's so huge considering it's just a switch, it's the biggest "pedal" I have and I'm guessing it's 99% empty space inside.

    Still super happy with my Rocker 15. The dirt channel is so nice and easy to use my pedals are mostly gathering dust.

    I'm still looking for a Rocker 32 to try out. I have an older orange Rocker 30 that I adore, but saying it doesn't play well with pedals is an understatement. I wanted to see how the el84's in the 32 and tweaked layout differ from the el34's in the 30.

    Hello, I'm just joining to the club with my newly purchased Orange Dark Terror with its 1 x 12 speaker cabinet, pictured here escorted by two of its mates - Gibson Firebird 2017 and Telecaster Andy Summers' tribute.

    What a great little amp!

    Best regards.

    Hey.. so my Rocker 15 is starting to get a scratchy pot on the volume control for the clean channel. Anyone else see this? It's only a few months old.

    It is not real annoying, it doesn't affect the sound at all. What will happen is if I leave the volume alone for a day or two and then adjust it I'll hear some scratchiness. Turn it back and forth a couple times and it goes away.

    None of the other knobs are doing this at all, any thoughts on what to do? Not worry about it for now? Try to take it back? I bought it at GC, I wouldn't trust them to repair anything at this point. If I wait on it and it gets really bad I'd be fine replacing it myself as long as it's not too hard to get the thing out without damaging the cabinet.

    Can stuff like deOxit be used without disassembling the unit?
