The first high gain amp in the Terror series, the Orange Amplification Dark Terror Guitar Amp Head is a true master of saturated distortion, making it an ideal match for Hard Rock players looking for signature Orange Amplification ‘chug’ in a portable package. Featuring the same 15/7 Watt output section as the Orange Amplification Tiny Terror, plus the addition of our low impedance, valve buffered effects loop, the key to the amp its high gain preamp section and our exclusive Shape control.
The Shape, which first appeared on our 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!
