The Dual Terror is a fantastic amp for the gigging guitarist - live or in the studio. Definitely check it out!
The Dual Terror is a great amp! Don’t let the minimal controls deceive you, this thing just oozes tone! The single volume, tone, and gain knobs are very sensitive. A single tone knob may seem limiting, but Orange did it right – I couldn’t get a bad tone out of it! The power section is the highlight of the amp and alone is worth the price of admission. The power section is switchable from four output tubes down to two, and you can cut the power down even more to a mere seven watts! These different settings really make a difference in a live or studio situation where you need to change your overall volume settings without sacrificing an ounce of tone.
The lowest output setting, with the gain at about 2 o’clock on the Tiny Terror channel, is my personal favorite as it affords very tight yet dirty rhythm tones. The clean tones are also fantastic and hold a great chimey, bell-like quality that is hard to come by with amps in this price range. A big concern of mine when I look into amps is how they react to different pedals. The Dual Terror did not disappoint! I put some of my favorite pedals in front and the tone was clear, tight, and articulate. Very cool!
All of these qualities alongside its small footprint and included gig bag make the Dual Terror a fantastic amp for the gigging guitarist – live or in the studio. Definitely check it out!
