As a big fan of the original tiny terror and dual terror I pretty much had to check this little amp out. The price point is attractive. But let's see if the amp pays off. The FX loop is great. All orange loops tend to be really good and they really have this nailed down on their amps. I use mine with a Bogner Oversized 2x12 most of the time. I tend to favor my old Ibanez rg550 with it a lot.


The shape knob is probably one of the best features in an amp that really makes an EQ section redundant. Careful control of it will give you all the tones you could want. I will admit that this amp is great at high gain and it can "chug" better than a lot of bigger heads. But the lower gain tones are also surprisingly great. It even cleans up nicely. Who would have thought? It's helpful to think of the dark terror as a tiny terror with a slightly more aggressive voicing and a lot more gain on tap.


This amp is louder than the tiny terror. Just getting that out there. It sounds like it has 22 watts to the TT's 15. So keep that in mind. You can play just about any gig with this. There's a ton of headroom oddly enough.

The only knock I could say is how similar it is to the tiny terror. To be fair, I think this is overall a more usable amp especially if you player heavy metal or the like. If you are playing classic rock or something then stick with the TT.

Orange Dark Terror
For the size of a lunch box this little amp pacts quite a kick to it. This amp looks like something you would walk to school with and be carrying your peanut butter sandwich in. Orange has taken such a small but positive approach to lunch box style amplifiers. There seems to be a trend going on with manufacturers hitting a market that seems like a good entry way into their flagship amplifiers.

The amp has that familiar British grind that you found in the 60's and 70's went they were the leaders in getting high gain sustain from their guitar rigs. This little box does what a full stack can do in a pint size proportion. It sounds fantastic and gets chewier and smoother as you hit it harder with more volume. This amp is the same spec as the original tiny terror but just in a black amp casing. Same great tone as would imagine and the fantastic new look.

Though the Orange amps have a familiar British flavor to them I think that anyone would be surprised at how big and bold the tone is from this small box. Though is is rated at only 15 watts it gets quite loud and will accompany most small clubs or gigging situations quite nicely. There is no compromise of tone or quality in this amp. Is sounds as huge tonal wise as any of the larger more frequented amps that Orange makes.

Try this guitar out with a Les Paul and you be pleasantly surprised out how meaty the tone is from simply a Gain, Tone, and Volume knob. This thing can be dropped down to a 7 watt operation for home use or even recording. It sounds great in either setting you have.


Many manufacturers have now saw the overwhelmingly positive result that Orange got from this and are now doing the same thing. Mesa Boogie released one last year as well as Vox. Hughes and Kettner is releasing one this year and you'll see that in the trade shows real soon. There has been an untapped market for these little light weight but heavy punch high gain amplifiers. I would recommend this amp to anyone who needs pint size amp with a kick. At new these amps come in at a round $650. Great bang for your buck in these harsh economic times.
