    When I run an Orange Micro Dark (Solid State, valve preamp) at 12V 2A instead of the 15V 2A, what's the worst that could happen?
    It sounds rather nice so far...

    Most likely the worst thing is that you'll get a little less output power. My old Peavey Decade is rated at a little less power when on 12VDC than when it's running on its internal power supply.
