Has someone used a marking pen on the ORANGE Logo ? Nice amp, would help if he posted guts shots and trannies as well.

Painted black, some changed minor parts, not at that buy now price......... more the starting price if lucky.

Most likely hardwired which is pretty cool. I'll check the number on mine which I think is in the 40's which used the same board material as Marshall rather than the Vox style wiring that single digit number ORST's I have seen pics of. You can get that Peter Green sound with this amp and some skill!

Buy it now is just under £3k English, plus shipping - even with the provenance, it seems a tad high from here.
I'd be expecting a 200w 'big one' for similar money, but maybe things have moved on?

:)

Edit: vvv Yup, starting bid is fine, it's the buy it now that looks high (& that is usually what sellers are aiming for)

Seller probably would ship to the US and it would be expensive, but the under $2000 US starting bid/potential final price isn't that unreasonable if all is right with the chassis.

been relisted,
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/ORANGE-MATAM ... 1834654663?


quote from seller

"The unit is aprox 80 watts. (but referred to by Orange as a 100W unit.) with two new El34's fitted plus bias setup and serviced this week. Tested today sounded great."

might be 80 fully cranked but it was sold as 50w, orange never advertised it as 100w,

"the front panel is Bakelite", no it isn't it's trafolyte. Why replace the lovely original face panel bolts with those silly looking screws, they used roofing bolts, should be easy to get in any hardware store.

I sold mine for c£1,200 but the case was trashed, saw one go for nearly 2k euros a few years ago but it was absolutely mint, looked like it had just left the factory. Certainly wouldn't pay his price for that one irrespective of who may have owned it.
