Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this Orange Dark Terror Amplifier! You want more GAIN? YOU GOT IT! You've probably seen the demos, read the reviews and peeped a few online videos ( if you haven't be sure to watch the Orange Dark Terror video demo below ). Now you're here and you want to know what WE think. Well, this amp RAWKS in a big way!  Guitar players of all stripes and colors will instantly love rocking through the dark terror whether at home, rehearsals, gigs or recording sessions. The tone is all Orange, albeit with more gain at your disposal than you have ever thought possible, especially from an amp this size. The tonal difference between the different wattage settings is very slight in our opinion. The shape control offers a huge array of different classic Orange amp voicings, producing different amounts of compression, variable EQ sweeps and bass boosts. We'd recommend the 7 watt setting for bedroom levels - very impressive hard rocking tone and gripping sustain for low volume. Once set on the 15 watt settings however, the flood gates are wide open for tsunami sized hard rock and metal tones. For a nice "clean" setting, roll off the gain, crank the volume, find your preferred sweet spot on the shape control and enjoy glistening cleaner tones. This amp is touch sensitive enough on this setting to produce just a bit if grit when you lean into it. We can't tell you that clean is what this amp is about though because it's not. Crank the gain on this setting, dial in your "Shape" and you'll be ready to make heads roll at your local gig.

This amp is perfect for the guitarist looking for something portable that rocks in a big way. It is truly amazing what Orange has delivered in such an easy to carry package. 

Item Details

The Dark Terror produces it's incredible tone from a fairly simple tube arrangement. It employs 3 12AX7 preamp tubes, 2 EL84 power tubes and a dedicated 12AT7 tube to drive the FX loop. The super high gain preamp sounds amazing and helps deliver the Orange sound at any volume. When you crank the volume, however, you'll hear those EL84's open wide for heady power tube distortion. Orange has also given the Dark Terror a nice compatibility feature offering a 16 ohm output and two different 8 ohm outputs. This opens the door to multiple cab setups for the guitarist on the go or for the player who runs one cab today and two cabs tomorrow.  Weighing in at only 15 pounds and coming with it's own padded gig bag, you'll have never had an easier load in to a gig. This is a tiny package with a massive sound.

From Orange's website:
"Menacingly small, easily recognizable, this aggressive little amp comes with a mind-blowing sound which combines the Shape control of the Thunder series with the weight and size of the monster Terror family. This Frankenstein-like amp has creepy amounts of gain on tap with disturbingly pleasurable responsiveness. It is uncompromisingly brutal, doubtless unhinged, even ferocious! The Dark Terror rises from the ethereal depths to fulfill the every desire of the Heavy Metal and Rock guitar players. With its characteristic fearless Orange Amp looks, heavy duty construction and portability, guitar players everywhere will quickly become attuned to this scary dark force of nature.

The Dark Terror is highest gain Terror amp ever.  Hear its distinctive Orange Amp sound and you will feel this mysteriously attractive force pulling you into the shadow of the Dark Terror. It’s everything you want from a Black Orange Amp. Prepare to ride the Dark Terror storm."
