Jimmy Page with 30 watt amp at 02 Arena...

Page was plugged into an Orange AD-30 at the 02 Arena show. Interesting to consider that 30 watts may have been all Page was using for some songs at a stadium show. He's only plugged into one of the AD-30s - each amp stacked in two's most likely just as back-ups.


The other amps Page used were a Super Lead, AD-50 and Petersberg. I also wonder if he was doubling up different amp models or just A/B/C/D switching to each amp alone for various songs/guitars?



Page with entire live backline...

That was my immediate thought! I have to admit, I've never needed to mic my 22w, and I can get it up just loud enough to sound really, really great without people giving me "the look."

Theremin = Orange

Bet he used the Marshall and Russian amp for all the songs.

Oh no - "the look" lol! I hate that - if they only understood that we don't turn up just to be loud.

Large-scale p.a. systems are a lot more powerful and sophisticated nowadays than they were in the '70s. No need to have a bank of 100-watt amp stacks.

I figured that, but still thought with that much room onstage and in the house 100 watts or so would disperse without too much volume intensity. Just goes to show 30 watts can go a long way live...

I've heard rumors that Angus plays a small modded amp behind the stacks, then has it piped into those speakers through the FX loop for the illusion and stage.

Regardless, I know very few bands who don't mike these days...anyone with a few months experience can get it right so your stage volume is not killing you, and everyone can hear everyone.

Aha! That's why the 4203 I play sounds so much like that tone!

How do you know they're AD50s? Are there closer pics that haven't been posted that can confirm the ones on the far right are AD50s and not Retros??
