    crap!

    I played an Orange today and confirmed it was THE tone I've been looking for.....

    really expensive!!!

    Would a Traynor YBA200 get me part of the way towards that sweet tone?

    I feel for you...

    I did the same thing on tuesday. Tried an Orange with a Sansamp 4x10. Had to go back on wednesday with my own bass to check it out...sounded even better.

    Oh well, tomorrow I'm going to check our various Ampeg all tube thingies...and a Monster (a local delicacy, 130W with tone to die for (so they say)).

    But the Orange had such lovely growl with my Warwick. Yummy, fat, growly and, well, singing tone. I just wish it had a power-amp in, for more options. I feel I might need a different tone at times and that would be when a different preamp would come into play. I guess we just can't have it all...

    (I too put in a call to the local Yorkville distributor about the Traynor...hasn't called back yet)

    tubes tubes tubes aaaaargh

    OH MAN! I want on orange to match up with my bergie. The NV series are the best when it comes to tube heads.

    The Traynor is a completely different sort of animal than the Orange. Sure they are both all tube, but they sound very different. The Traynor comes closer to SVT than Orange.
