"He also got a new main amp, a vintage 1967 (?) 200-watt Orange Matamp. However this did not end up on the Blue Album due to its constant fuse popping (later we figured out that it needed a bigger size fuse than what it said on the back). Later, in 1995, Matt got a second Orange Matamp, which was very similar to the '67, except it was from approximately 1975. It looked almost new, but this was before they started re-issuing them, so we knew it was old. On 'pinkerton' and on stage for later Weezer and Rentals tours, Matt went back to the GK, with a Sovtek Big Muff pedal for distortion, and used the Orange just for recording clean sounds and for a back-up. Eventually both Oranges were severely damaged - the '67 from the "Rhino Lad" incident during a '97 show in Richmond VA, and the '75 from a bad freight shipping incident. Their whereabouts and current condition are unknown." - Karl Koch, weezer.com Apparently, one of these amps was auctoned off Ebay in 2010.more
