Orange Amps launch new tube bias tech

Posted 07 Jan 2011 in Gear News, Press Releases

For over forty years Orange amps has pushed back the boundaries of guitar amp technology and at NAMM 2011 the company are to announce a worldwide exclusive distribution agreement for DIVO Tube Sync®, a “truly revolutionary” new guitar amp technology.

The new technology automatically adjusts the bias of the output power tubes to ensure their full potential is realised. It monitors the amp’s performance and will isolate faulty tube failures, by running them at half power until the tubes can be changed. The DIVO system also increases the reliability of amplifiers by maintaining the optimum performance of the tubes by performing an ‘in circuit’ test every time the amplifier is powered up.

This approach opens up a some interesting tonal options, allowing the ability to mix and match tubes. You can experiment with an EL34, 6L6, 6550, KT77 or any other tube type all at the same time in the same amp. With DIVO the Tubes are automatically matched.

The technology can be integrated into any almost any guitar tube amplifier.

Orange amps will be offering this as option in their new Rockerverb 100 which will be ‘DIVO Ready’. For other Orange amps and most other brands Orange offer the DIVO Orange Tube Sync OV4, a complete standalone unit.
