No Improvement needed
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.
Small but powerful beast!
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.
Great Compact Amp
I found this on Facebook marketplace and drove a half hour into the city (already 1AM at this point), excited to get this amp for a steal. I didn't mess with it too much while testing it out, but was not at all disappointed when I finally had the opportunity to plug it in.
This thing CRANKS. Such an excellent drive tone, and pushed all the way- it's a great distortion. I keep the tone right in between 12 and 1 O'Clock, otherwise it's too dark or really bright. Orange has never failed to impress me with what I've tried out- but this little thing sold the brand for me. It can get surprisingly loud, but there isn't very much clean headroom at all. To get it loud enough to gig with (possible, but not ideal), the gain has to be cranked to noon with the volume maxed. Better hope they mix cabs! A bit too driven like that, but it can work if you don't have another option.
I got it with two matching cabs with 8" speakers (mini stack), and they sounded excellent together. The low end doesn't thump too much, so the tone can be turned down a bit before getting too muddy. Pairing this amp with a 2x12" is a wonderful combo though.
This is a steal of an amp but too quiet to gig with due to lack of headroom. Save for a dual terror if you can but if you want a decent bedroom amp or studio amp then go for it. It won't do raging gain by the way if that's what you are looking for then try the 'dark' version.
Awsome sound,even with a good price
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 . :)
