1979 Orange Husler OR145 Bass Combo Amplifier Schematic

Postby Lemos on Sat Nov 08, 2014 7:29 pm

Hello, VintageAmps community. I am currently seeking the schematic/diagram for a 1979 Orange Hustler OR145 Bass Combo. From what I have read, this schematic is very similar to the Orange SuperBass, not sure how- or in what way. The reason I am digging through the internet to uncover this schematic, is so I can home fabricate my own. That being said, any schematic/instructions that will lead me into a path with an end product of a mimic '79 OR145 will work for me. I have yet to contact Orange in order to confirm this SuperBass schematic clone idea. If you know of a verified schematic of say a Fender Twinsomething rather, that resembles the same diagram, that will work as well, I am just looking for someway to fabricate my own verifiable replica of the said Hustler model. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you guys in advance,
Dave

As I said in the other thread, it will be the same as the Superbass schematic minus 2x EL34 output valves.
Schematic is here:

I can guarantee that the above schematic is accurate, as I drew it up myself from my own 79 Superbass.

You can even get a trace pattern for the PCB here:

Apologies for the slightly grainy image (it will still work though) - there used to be a better version on imageshack but it has gone now.
Cheers,
Jon

I have seen this theory that they are the same amplifier schematic in a few forums- I am still wondering why they would release two separate amplifiers with nearly identical circuits?

Jon, I got a quick question for you. I am beginning the process of ordering all the parts I need for the build. I looked up the Power/Output Transformers, and they are like $200+. I am wondering if I could gut one of these amplifiers, in order to supply the demand of circuitry: A 2007 Line 6 Spider III 150w, a 2006? VOX Valvetronix AD15VT XL, or an old Marshall MG10CD 40w, (all Guitar Amplifiers.) I will edit the post later with the circuits of the posted amplifiers, I am just throwing the question out now, in case you can answer it without knowing the components.

PMed you as well, not sure if we get notified when someone posts on the forums boards. I am also wondering if you could post the serials of the two Transformers, just so I know what to look for.

Thanks in advance,

Jon... I have a major favor to ask of you, I am wondering if you could post a video demonstrating the different tones that can be achieved from the SuperBass. As the time closely approaches towards the build, I would like to get a final verdict before diving too deep into the project.

Thank you in advance,
Dave
