Plug into Orange's Dark Terror tube amp head and hang on. This amazing little amp pumps out up to 15 watts of incredible tones and excels at heavy, high-gain sounds. Plenty powerful for small gigs and rehearsals, the Dark Terror head also adapts well to studio use, as you can drop the wattage down to seven watts for lower-volume saturation. Dial in an awesome gain range. Use the shape knob to tweak your tones to your liking. You even get a very cool tube-driven effects loop, so you can add your own effects and get even more killer tones out of this compact head. Crank up the volume knob and behold the sonic beast that is the Dark Terror!
The first high gain amp in the Terror series, the Dark Terror is a true master of saturated distortion, making it an ideal match for Hard Rock players looking for signature Orange ‘chug’ in a portable package. Featuring the same 15/7 Watt output section as the Tiny Terror, plus the addition of low impedance, valve buffered effects loop, the key to the amp its high gain preamp section and the exclusive Shape control.
The Dual Terror has been built to the same rugged specification as the bigger Orange amps and its portability makes it perfect for gigging around town or rehearsing. The Dark Terror switches between seven and 30 watts for stage or studio use and recording. This little amplifier is a record producer's dream and comes complete with a padded travel gig bag.
The Shape, which first appeared on our now discontinued Thunderverb Series, takes your sound from scooped, chunky modern rhythm tones in the fully clockwise position, to a more classic voicing (anticlockwise) with boosted mids and smooth highs, and everywhere in-between. This makes the amp much more versatile than its single channel, three knob layout (and black chassis!) might suggest. The preamp features four stages of gain, becoming increasingly aggressive as you turn the Gain control, reaching truly insane levels of drive. Ignore the clean and crunch tones at your peril, though. There are some tasty Blues tones to be had here!
Get huge, over-the-top tones with Orange's deceptively compact Dark Terror amp head!
