General Your general opinion of this product. Great little lunchbox amp for shredders. Sounds great for any heavy stuff you want to do and no need to add distortion. Loud as hell even set as low as you can get it. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Very well designed and put together. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Super heavy. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Dark Terror is right. Action How was the action out of the box? Perfect. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Great. Reliability How has it stood up over time? No problems yet.

General Your general opinion of this product. Simply wow. The ability to make a head unit so small, but produce such loud and quality sound. Orange threw out all the stops on this one Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This thing feels like a tank. Good materials. Yet not overly bulky/heavy. Great portability. Easy to store. Great for practice or small gigs if you have the right cabs. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Controls are easy to figure out. Only three controls, but easily tweaked to match songs or your style. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? You can alter the sound from clean to heavy/distorted. Can pull off 70-80 thrash, or just some good ol' blues. Great pick for all. Action How was the action out of the box? Great sound right out of the box. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Clean look. My preference would be the options for other colors or designs, but very clean. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Yes. I feel it will continue to produce great sound for years to come.
One of the best

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? As soon as you open the box you will be able to see how well this amp is made. Reliability How has it stood up over time? I've only had this for a few months but in that time this amp has been perfect. General Your general opinion of this product. Five minutes is all you need to realize this is one of the best amps around. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? There is a variety of tones you can get from this amp. Even clean tones with that awesome tube break up.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Rugged and well finished as is the 1X12 orange cab I'm using with it. I like JJ tubes anyway so it sounds great with these reliable tubes. Reliability How has it stood up over time? The Dark Terror has taken everything I've thrown at it. The perfect bedroom amp, or on 15 watts sounds great miched through the house PA. General Your general opinion of this product. Suits my needs perfectly. I'm a Mesa Man so my tone is dark anyway. Fender like tone, not so middy like Marshall. Cab selection was interesting. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? N/A Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I'm playing EMG equipped guitars and Fender tele's and Strats through it. The fenders for my clean stuff, and the EMG guitars for the hellish sounds. Does it all. Better then my Vox Night Train. I mean if your into metal as I am, this litle amp has the stuff to open the gates of hell tone ! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Very nice look, and better in person. Good contrast of colors between black and orange. Matches the orange colored cab well. Action How was the action out of the box? N/A

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Still new but I see no issues ahead with this amp Reliability How has it stood up over time? yes 2 wks now General Your general opinion of this product. I am generally a Marshall player but I have been looking for a smaller high gain amp. The Dark Terror appealed to me right off, all tube with a great effects loop, there is alot of different tones to be had pretty easy with just 3 knobs to turn. The construction is solid and it came with JJ tubes from the factory, win/win! Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Finish How did the stain or paint job look? loooks good! Action How was the action out of the box? great!
Plain and simple it is an incredible amp overall. Great for cranking at home.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Well constructed as the others before him. Reliability How has it stood up over time? To be seen. General Your general opinion of this product. If you are a rock player and you play mostly at home, this is the amp for you. Although, don't be fulled by this guy, he is loud as hell and it can be gigged with. It delivers a wide variety of tones. My brother is a gigging musician and has even played jazz with it. The amp is that good. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? It covers a wide variety, not just the heavy, chunky, beefy rock metal sound for which it was probably intended for. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? For one knob, it is just incredible. It covers a wide range of tone. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Superb! Action How was the action out of the box? Superb!
Dark Terror is a beast!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? So far so good. I've had it a few weeks and have had no issues unlike past foreign made Orange's. Reliability How has it stood up over time? We shall see. But I have no reason to believe it will break down. If it does, it looks simple enough to repair given some electronics and soldering knowledge. General Your general opinion of this product. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Controls are smooth and very functional Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? N/A Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I've heard the Tiny Terror looks like Hendrix's toaster, in that manner this looks like Ozzy's toaster. I wouldn't change a thing. Action How was the action out of the box? N/A
