Huge sound out of a microscopic package.
Orange Amplification launched the Micro Terror amplifier - their smallest Terror ever! Building on the winning recipe of the rest of the popular Terror series, the Micro Terror retains the beautiful unpretentious design, delivering a classic Orange sound way bigger than it looks, with a size and weight making it the most portable Terror yet!
With a high tensile steel case it is built to the same rugged specifications as the other members of the Terror family and is incredibly compact and highly portable. This is a true Orange Amp classic, with masses of vintage British character, clean crunch and full-on overdrive sounds.
This amp is a big surprise in a small package. What you get for 120 euros is unbelievable. 20 watts of hybrid power that translates into good tone and maintainability. I have it plugged in a 10'' cabinet and it is the master of the stage. Thanks to the solid state output stage it has enormous power for its small (almost cute) size. The features aren't bad either: adapter power, headphones jack, aux input and you can plug in any cab as long as its impedance is 4 ohms or higher.
This amp takes pedals really well. Drive pedals seem to pair with the 12ax7 preamp tube in a way that tubeless amps just wish to and can't achieve. I have a Orange 35LDX as my former practice amp and it just can't match the Micro Terror's pure tone. That amp is 120 euros more expensive.
Yeah sure, you have to buy a cab and a speaker cable. That is not a downside. The rumours are true, this little head can power a 4x12. It really can and if you want to turn some heads, that is what you should do.
Buy this amp, you can carry it in a backpack to a gig to act as a backup where a cab is available and the solid state output makes it reliable and rugged. If you are not pleased with the tone, you can swap the factory tube with that from Electro Harmonix, Sovtek etc.
Just buy it.
This amp does what it shoud do: serves right as a practice amp and/or backup for a gig. During the home use you can get all range of tone - from nice clean into real dirty and everything in between. It will cut through in the band situation, but do not expect lots of clean headroom then. It takes pedals very well - i put a phaser and a distortion in front of it to push it into limits.
For that price, size (yes, MT won't hurt your back during transport) and versatility you cannot go wrong with this amp.
The Orange Micro Terror it´s a very good sounding and portable amp. It is the perfect combination between really good amp and a small size ( and even small price) . This thing can really give you good tones and take a 4X12 cabinet but , if you use it with the small amp that comes with, you won´t have the same good result as you can. This amp can support pedals really good and also has a headphones input, that makes it even more usefull. Tha fact of it being an Hybrid amp makes it even louder , because of the solid state output. The Hybrid amps are the perfect combination of good tones with low maintainence and price. Buy it, play it and enjoy it . :)
For its size, plugged in to a 2/12 cab this thing puts out major volume and tone. Great little secondary amp or main for small venues, even a recording amp, and has an amazing clean tone with tube warmth even when playing an acoustic guitar through it.
I've had this head and the mini cabinet that goes along with it for several years and while it takes a while to love, this amp head is really great when paired with a good reverb pedal and a nice 2x12 or 1x15 cabinet. I used this head with an old dean markley cab for smaller venues with my shure sm58 and a 1/4 inch to xlr cable and really liked it due to my ability to turn the gain up and get a gritty sound for my vocals - very interesting sound. Highly recommend for the insanely low price point for a great sounding practice amp/recording amp or even a live amp if mic'ed or using a large cabinet.
The perfect keychain amp. My entire rig fits in a small gig bag. Sounds great through a 4x12 cab or the Orange 1x8" companion cab. When you play a number of different styles with a bunch of different bands, this level of portability is great!
