    I have an Orange AD30tc combo. I want to put a new tube in V1 but which one is it.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    ECC83 ECC83
    ECC83 ECC83 EL84 EL84 EL84 EL84 GZ34

    That is what the tube chart says and that is how the tubes are arranged
    I added the color coding so we can redfer to a color. Each preamp channel has two tubes each. Are the V1 tubes, Black and green or red and black. Can anyone help.

    I don't know anything about Oranges but AFAIK there can only be one V1 tube. Usually, the one closest to the input jack.
