"Lacey goes big and loud with a DR103 Hiwatt Custom 100 head plugged into a Janice 2x12 cab loaded with one Eminence Delta and one Swamp Thang speaker. Running in conjunction with the Hiwatt is a Gibson 1990s-era Orange Overdrive 80 that has been modded for 120-watt output," says [this article](http://www.premierguitar.com/articles/21220-rig-rundown-brand-news-jesse-lacey-and-vincent-accardi).more
> My main amp is a ‘78 Orange OR120. It’s got the Partridge trannys and is a bit of an odd duck with the stock black tolex. > I rarely use any OD pedals with it because it’s dirty enough! However, it cleans up remarkably well with my guitars since they all have treble bleed caps installed (an easy trick to retain high end when you roll back the guitar volume). The tone is unlike a Marshall; it’s “Foggy” like you might have read but there’s this extra weight you get behind riffs or even single notes that I haven’t found in other amps. It’s a beast!more
Basically, this amplifier was the Pics & Text with a post-phase inverter master volume control added, and with the HF Boost control renamed as Presence. The OD120’s control knobs differed from those on the Pics & Text: the Overdrive’s tone knobs were larger whilst the Master and Gain were slightly smaller. The OD120 was launched at Frankfurt in 1976.
