About the Orange Dark Terror:

The first high gain amp in the Terror series, the Dark Terror is a true master of saturated distortion. This makes it an ideal amp for Hard Rock players looking for signature Orange ‘chug’ in a portable package. It features the same 15/7 Watt output section as the Tiny Terror.

Plus the addition of a low impedance, valve buffered effects loop. This uses the 12AT7/12AX7.

So the key to this amp success (second best-selling amp in 2016 according to Reverb) is its high gain preamp section and the exclusive Shape control.

The Shape, which first appeared on the now discontinued Thunderverb Series, takes the sound from scooped, chunky modern rhythm tones to a more classic voicing. This offers boosted mids and smooth highs, and everywhere in-between.

So this makes the amp much more versatile than its single channel, three-knob layout might suggest.

The preamp features four stages of gain. They 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 also some very tasty Blues tones to be had there too!
