damballah's review"Nice Piece"

Orange Tiny Terror
- Used at home and on stage,
- almost too powerful for home usage unless you want to fry your neighbors
- deliver a powerful organic sound that can get dirty quite quickly
- Heavy and robust
- Nothing fancy with it, Gain , master bass and treble..
- Missa a Mediuml for sound coloring

Orange Tiny Terror
This is a tube amp running on el84s. It has a 2 way switch to go from 7 to 15 watts. Settings are simple: volume, tone, gain. Cool carrying bag!

UTILIZATION

Super easy to dial in a great sound! The lack of controls and switches creates a super clean line that delivers Orange tone in spades. I never read the manual as the operation is totally intuitive.

SOUNDS

I have guitars from Gibson, Epiphone, and Fender. They each sound fantastic, but my favorite is the Les Paul going into an MXR overdrive (little gain applied) right into the amp. I put this little head on a 4x12 and played lead guitar in a band where the rhythm player played his Peavey XXX. The XXX is known as a LOUD amp, but this 15 watt amp easily kept right up in practice volumes in a LOUD punk/hard roc band. Very impressive! I had an Egnater Tweaker and a Randall rm20 and this 15 watt terror was clearly more powerful. I guess 15 watts does not always equal 15watts? Clarity and unique Orange british tone is the drawing card on this amp.

OVERALL OPINION

I love the simple great tone of this small beast. throw a 57 on this and you have a great rock tone that cuts through the mix- live and in the studio. Here's a couple of tunes I used all Terror>Marshall 1960>(2) 57s>Roland vs2480

This tone is unique and may not be for everyone...but it definitely has the signature Orange mids and presents great clarity and articulation.
The value is great bang for your buck for Orange tone seekers. t is not a modern chainsaw machine, so people looking for the rectifier buzz should look elsewhere. There are no channel switching abilities, but using the guitar volume with a pedal boost will give a seasoned player lots of option on stage. Ideally, this amp is for the bedroom player who can carry his amp to practice on a NY subway.

Great sounds at low volumes, enough power to keep up in a loud band, and clear tone make this a great deal. if you need more gain in a metal band, or perhaps cleaner Fender-ish tones, this is not the amp. Straight ahead great rock sounds is the forte here.

iamqman's review"Tiny but not Terror"

Orange Tiny Terror
Characteristics9/10
For the size of a lunch box this little amp pacts quite a kick to it. This amp looks like something you would walk to school with and be carrying your peanut butter sandwich in. Orange has taken such a small but positive approach to lunch box style amplifiers. There seems to be a trend going on with manufacturers hitting a market that seems like a good entry way into their flagship amplifiers.

The amp has that familiar British grind that you found in the 60's and 70's went they were the leaders in getting high gain sustain from their guitar rigs. This little box does what a full stack can do in a pint size proportion. It sounds fantastic and gets chewier and smoother as you hit it harder with more volume.

UTILIZATION

Features

Controls: gain, tone, volume
Features: 1.5 mm Zintec chassis with steel vented top case.
Includes padded gig bag
Output: 15W 'Class A'; 7W 'Class A'
Valves: Preamp - 2 x 12AX7; Output - 2 x EL84



SOUNDS

Though the Orange amps have a familiar British flavor to them I think that anyone would be surprised at how big and bold the tone is from this small box. Though is is rated at only 15 watts it gets quite loud and will accompany most small clubs or gigging situations quite nicely. There is no compromise of tone or quality in this amp. Is sounds as huge tonal wise as any of the larger more frequented amps that Orange makes.

Try this guitar out with a Les Paul and you be pleasantly surprised out how meaty the tone is from simply a Gain, Tone, and Volume knob. This thing can be dropped down to a 7 watt operation for home use or even recording. It sounds great in either setting you have.

OVERALL OPINION

Many manufacturers have now saw the overwhelmingly positive result that Orange got from this and are now doing the same thing. Mesa Boogie released one last year as well as Vox. Hughes and Kettner is releasing one this year and you'll see that in the trade shows real soon. There has been an untapped market for these little light weight but heavy punch high gain amplifiers. I would recommend this amp to anyone who needs pint size amp with a kick. At new these amps come in at a round $599. Great bang for your buck in these harsh economic times.

UTILIZATION

It is very easy to get great tone from this amp. The settings are simple enough: volume, tone, and gain. It seems pretty sturdy and comes with a carrying case to cape it safe while traveling.

SOUNDS

I play a SG, Les Paul, Rick 360, Strat, and Tele through this amp depending on what tone I want. The amp sounds fantastic. Many people have said it is a one trick pony and it is. This pony does its trick VERY WELL. When this amp starts to break up it sounds fantastic. Awesome British crunch. It doesn't have much headroom so live cleans isn't really an option. I prefer fender cleans anyway. Because of this I run it A/B with a clean amp live.

OVERALL OPINION

For British crunch, this amp has fantastic tone. For the price, it's a (relatively) cheap way to get a grade A tube sound. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who wants to use it as a clean amp. If I were given the choice I might look into the Dark Terror now for its two channels but that wasn't out when I bought the Tiny Terror.

UTILIZATION

This is a very easy to use Orange Amp. They have been known for their controls to have pictures rather than descriptions of the EQ, gain, and volume. However, this lunch box has only three control knobs so you can't really get off track.

15 Watts ‘Class A’ / 7 Watts ‘Class A’

The consumers has voted and they love this unit. Orange has sold over 30,000 of these units so far.

UTILIZATION

A very simple amp, with a few controls to shape your tone.

SOUNDS

I normally use a Les Paul with Seymour Duncans.

This amp is not versatile at all, if you want a versatile amp, you can stop reading now...
But, if you want classic british clean and medium gain tones, please continue.
Cleans: I found the cleans to be a weak point of this amp, lifeless and dull, but passable for what it is. a 15w cheap amp. With an EQ you can really shape it to make it a little more sparkly, but don't expect them to ever be amazing or super clean, because its never really truly "clean" in my opinion.

Overdrive: This is where this amp shines, glorious lush british overdrive and crunch tones. It's pretty much instant AC/DC with Vintage 30s or Greenbacks. You can get it pretty heavy but after you get to a certain point it just becomes a muddy mess and never stays very tight in the low end, so don't expect chugga chugga metal out of it, but if you want classic sounding british overdrive tones, look no further especially small gigging and bar gig guys!

OVERALL OPINION

I love this amp, especially for the used price, it sounds great minus it being a little dark and muddy, but for the price its a great practice and small gigging amp if you mic it. I highly recommend it!

velvetunderground's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Rrrrrr!!"

Orange Tiny Terror
15W lamps can be used in 7W

settings could not be more basic, which is not to displease me. It still lacks a little reverb (which will surely be my next purchase)

UTILIZATION

I use it with a small cabinet Vox Night Train with a Celestion Greenback

I was looking for something to replace my Vox AC-30, too powerful and too big: the volume is reasonable for the house, but can easily cover a drummer in rehearsal, and it weighs ... 7kg, finished pétages back at each concert.

This is definitely an amp simple: you plug it sounds. What else?

SOUNDS

This amp is built for rock seventies, with a crunch / distortion down to Mark Bolan and Mick Ronson (guitar respectively T-Rex and Bowie period 70) would not be denied. When you drop a little gain on the intermediate positions of a strat gives sounds very interesting rhythm (listen to the rhythm at the end of the song "Fields of Joy" by Lenny Kravitz to give you an idea), with a little more acute, it is perfect for riffs "Stoniens" (try the riff of "Jumping Jack Flash" of stones or "Bohemian Like You" Dandy Warhols ... <3). Micro doubles, it approaches the sound of his lordship Jack White (I fan? Nooo :) ), moreover I saw that he used small heads in the same spirit on his last tour, everything that to say that riffs like "Sixteen Salteen" or "Tick Tick Boom" Hives are above ... Waooh!

For the rest, the big metal sounds are not strong point (it's good, I either do not like the metal), some dishes are clean, but acceptable. I think what is most lacking is a good reverb.

In two words: a lot of his character ... I personally looove!!

OVERALL OPINION

As I said, I wanted something light, not too strong but still enough to cover a drummer, and has the personality to replace my AC 30 (the series "Made in China" 2009 to be precise).

I have tried tons and tons of amps before buying the AC 15 Blues Junior through the Laney Lionheart (very good also, but a little over my budget and heavy) or Blackstar ... and I finally cracked this little head. Needless to say, the sound has nothing to do with AC 30 or what I wanted to begin with (except maybe the English side), but what fishing is rock'n'roll through Nail.

With a short week experience I remake this choice :)

I put 9 because only purchase a fuse burned out after 20 minutes of play, after the opinion of the seller, I changed it since everything is fine ... insha'allah!

Everything is dj said ...

UTILIZATION

Very simple config ...
I get my sound ultra easy
Yes the manual is clear and tlchargeable site builder.

SOUNDS

As former bassist I use branch on 1540 HE Ampeg (Bass), 15 w 7 not tried. The knobs are almost the cleat (vol: 10 - Gain: 10 - tone at 3 / 4). My guitar is given by Si.

The style? hardcore stoner metal and ca be superbly scratch because the 2nd is in Mesa Dual Rectifier (but so totally DIFFERENT complmentaire) ...
I would describe the sound of well-Gras! While it right ...

I do not use effective, high-tuner-tiny. I will try a whawha has Okaz and a boost handmade.

As you can see I use one but what's his! ;-)

OVERALL OPINION

I use it since August 2011.
A friend bought 200 euros I do not hsit.
Not really tried other models ntant not scratch at the base ..
What I like is the simplicity you plug it sounds ... and size! super convenient to repeat! The mouth also ...

This tiny me in discovering the sound rel Orange, the sudden I'll get me a Rocker 30 history to have a bit of gouache pluss ... But I keep it tiny!

Orange Tiny Terror
What kind of amplification (lamp, transistor ,...)?

All-tube amplifier, two 12AX7 and two EL84 in prampli for the Tagus power.

What is the power dlivre?

15 watts RMS switchable to 7 watts, all in Class A.

What connection?

One input on the front and 3 speaker output jack guitar format in front rear (two 8-ohm and 16-ohms).

What rglages the effects? ...

A master volume, one tone knob and a knob for gain.



UTILIZATION

The configuration is it simple?

Could not be more simple. Plug in, turn on, tune in and you&#39;re ready to go.

Do you get a good sound easy?

Just rgler the tone and the gain according to the desires.

The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

I have no manual or guide reu with the amplifier and even if a is not really it would ncessaire INTERESTED t from Orange to give us more pr Decisions on bte.



SOUNDS

Is it your style of music?

I play mostly rock that is progressive, alternative or more conventional times. I must say that I am not seeking the versatility but also a sound that I like and the grain of the Tiny Terror sduit me. It offers a beautiful play area while having a good personality quenching. I have never seen in difficulty since I have acquired.

With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play?

I play an Ibanez RG 2570 Z Whereas I like a guitar trs good quality and more versatile than it seems. I did use a multi-disciplinary and do not like Whereas a machine to gain forge metal. Even if it is true that the output level of DiMarzio is awesome, she knows how to rev subtle and groovy when I asked. We feel the cot while the guitar except for the ease with which it changes and you register as a stratum below would.

I connect the head a 1x12 cabinet partially open the rear and a quip Seventy80 Celestion 50 watt (8 ohms).

Cot effect I use:
A BOSS TU-2 (Chromatic Tuner), Bad Horsie Morley VAI a 1 (Wah), a Digitech Whammy WH-4, a Boss PH-2 (Phaser), a Boss DD-3 (Digital Delay) and a Boss GE- 7 (7 Band Graphic Equalizer).

What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "bold ",....)?

With the tone below the half of the race:
The clean is warm, round and only itself. Ds that turns the gain over 4 and up 5-6, began to saturate. This gives a crunch vintage trs very dynamic and enjoyable trs. If you push the gain further you end up with a nice distortion, singing clear and trs. The grain is rsolument british reserve of gain and allows aggressive riffs.

With the tone at the top half of the race:
The clean is warm but law and prcis. It provides a nice twang but fast enough crunch with double coils. Ds you push a little gain, crunch takes on a vintage trs with clarity and dynamics Defines difficult. Going further we find ourselves with a sound prcis trs, incisive and rsolument lead. Harmonics and steal riffs are sharp trs.

What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?

I love the british grain that makes one nostalgic with single coil and gain 4 or 5 but also very modern s&#39;avre when we send the sauce around 7 or 8 with a humbucker: A real DLIC . The clean is nice for a setup like this, I find many Intgr the rest. He is not to look pretty. The only catch is the TOC a bit messy when saturated sound effects added such as a phaser or flange. It is the only problem the lack of li effects loop but the sound remains completely usable and enjoyable.



OVERALL OPINION

How long have you use it?

Two weeks ago I have been a dj and I RPET and a live (non-transplanted. I play it quite often because I apprcie much compared to the Randall RG 50 TC I had before and I do not regret at all. The power of the Tiny Terror must not be under estimated, 15 watt all-tube: It dmnage!

What is the particular feature you like best and least?

I like the fact that it dpouill without being simplistic. You can easily spend a crunch with the gain 4 or 5 a Clean lowering the volume a little bit of scratching or distortion muscle with a boost of 10 15 db.

What I regret most is the abscence of effects loop and manufacturing Coren. Damage to an amplifier as convincing.

Have you tried many other models before acqurir?

I tried a Hiwatt Hi-Gain 50 has rvel be what I want but too expensive for now, a Marshall JVM 205 H in color tone did not please me at all and a Randall RG 50 TC I possde. I tried other amps in my life but this guitar are the main I tried during the two months since the purchase of prcd Tiny Terror.

How do you report qualitprix?

I bought nine dan 470 a music store in my region (Charleroi, Belgium) which I find to be a good price for a head of the invoice.

Exprience with, you will do again this choice? ...

I think the Tiny Terror is an amplifier that has gnial to make a little way with a head of quality without breaking the bank. Ultimately, a head provided better and higher fly should come to replace it in RPET and / or live sre but one thing is: he will not blush.

Orange Tiny Terror
Enough said. An effects loop would have filled. It is also DSOL to see that the future is also Dual Terror dpourvu, while the Bass Terror reoit in a ...

UTILIZATION

Trs simple.

SOUNDS

In sound, it was generally three phases:
With the low-gain a clear enough way, no compress lacking bass. It is usable in the studio, but as a group have to forget, or while armed with a drummer. This is not the strong point of the amp, many others do better in this area.
-With the gain in average, we get to crunch trs beautiful, especially high volume. Great sound that justifies the purchase of the amp. A rgal, even if here too, a little more bass would not have all night. Group assisted with a guitar is excellent, has pierced the mix, but in-bass-drums trio, the sound seems too Triqui enough pais.
With high-gain, the field of fuzz. It's not my cup of tea. I prfre mid gain, with an overdrive in front.
The legalization is quite effective, although it has seen better.
This is an amp that can please or characters dplaire.
Is the advisor for rock, hard rock 80. For the blues, I prfre a Fender or a Vox.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a year. It has its strengths (the crunch, the simplicity and weaknesses (no loop, a lack of bass) but I have not found better to use that I have: that of an amp travel. For quick rptitions o we will not leave the Big Bertha, it's very practical. With less than seven pounds and his bag, it is excellent. It is small, lightweight and sounds. I regret that few brands embark on crneau. Too often the choice between small amps, but unable to face a battery (Epi Valve Junior, Fender Champion 600, etc.). or hardware powerful enough, but too bulky dj (2061x Marshall, Laney Lionheart ...) Note that Vox Orange shamelessly copy the Night Train, but has not had the good idea e to put an effects loop that would have to catch up with their three-year delay. I look forward to the release of the Dual Terror, with the channel can be "fat" is a little rcuprera low, but I'm afraid of losing lgret and the compactness. Otherwise, trs solid, the price seems decent.
