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

    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.
