Product Description

A pint-sized, 20 watt valve hybrid head, the Micro Dark Terror is driven by a 12AX7 preamp section that offers tones from ‘Clean’ to ‘Mean’. Features include a buffered effects loop , headphone out with CabSim circuitry. Pair with a PPC108 cabinet for a small but powerful practice rig.

Orange Micro Dark Terror Mini Electric Guitar Head Features

  • Single channel valve/solid state hybrid amp head
  • High gain preamp
  • Shape control
  • Fully buffered effects loop
  • CabSim circuitry loaded headphone output
The Micro Dark shares the same intuitive Shape control combined with a new 12AX7-driven high gain preamp section which yields screaming dirty tones that make a mockery of its miniature frame. Like its bigger brothers, however, the Micro Dark’s smoky black chassis and simple layout actually disguises its cunning versatility.

Of course, there’s plenty of gain on tap to satisfy even the most discerning devotee of distortion, but this little beast is by no means just a one-trick Metal monster! Beneath the menacing exterior you’ll find a rich and diverse palette of classy and confident tones. From squeaky clean to brash and mean – whatever your style – you’re gonna love this thing.

Other features include a transparent fully buffered effects loop and a headphone output with Orange’s popular CabSim circuitry. When with PPC108 cabinet, the Micro is an ideal practice rig… Plug into something a little larger, though, and you might find your new secret weapon in the studio!

The Micro Dark sports a new high gain circuit which blends valve and solid state technology. The preamp uses single 12AX7/ECC83 valve and produces a huge range of usable tones with warm cleans, smooth overdrive and fat, singing distortion. Its robustly designed solid state output section means the Micro Dark can be paired with any 8-16 Ohm cabinet. Plus, it’s so small you could lose it!

Orange’s exclusive Shape control varies the midrange response whilst interacting with the bass and treble. Working from the 12 o’clock position, a subtle nudge to the left adds more midrange and smooths the highs. A clockwise notch or two reduces the mids and brightens the tone.

At the extremes the Shape’s effect becomes even more pronounced, especially as you begin to push the Gain control. A scooped, thrashy voicing with a ‘smiley face’ EQ is easily achieved in the fully clockwise position, whilst turning fully anti clockwise aggressively boosts the mids, for a more ‘classic’ bark.

The Micro Dark’s fully buffered, low impedance loop allows for any number of effects and cables to be patched in without sacrificing tone. It’s incredibly transparent, meaning your pedal arsenal will perform to its absolute peak.

A popular feature on Orange’s Crush Series amps, the headphone output includes our CabSim circuitry which faithfully emulates the sound of a mic’d Orange 4×12” cabinet loaded with the flagship Voice of the World speakers. Use headphones for silent practice or connect to a mixer/recording console to capture huge, authentic Orange tones in the studio.

Big sound in a tiny package!

Product Review

Wow! Just wow. I cannot believe this thing sounds this great for the price! It’s clean when you want it to be, crunchy, and furious, all with the twist of the knobs. I love the hybrid combo of tube preamp and solid state. Seems to work outstandingly well. Highly recommended!

Great Little Hi-Gain Amp

Product Review

Great little amp that gets SUPER loud. It gets very dark and crunchy. It’s a bit of a one trick pony, but with more time I’m sure I’ll find more versatility.

Wow

Product Review

I was very impressed. I hooked it up to my Randall 4x12 and the sound was crazy. Surprised me for it only being 20 watts giving out the big sound of a 100 watts if amazing. I have my other guitarist about to order one for him self.

Product Review

I've had this amp head before, but sadly was stolen. Have it once more and couldn't be happier! For it's size, pairing it with a good cab produces amazing results. It's loud, proud, and even though this is the "high gain" model, it produces clean tones better than most clean amps I've used before. The effects loop is a super nice touch, and the headphone jack is nice for some at home practice. I've had quite a number of people shocked that the tone and presence of my sound comes from such a small thing. I definitely recommend it, and it even fits in my pedalboard bag!
