Diminutive size with tons of tone! The Dual Terror head from Orange puts up to 30 watts of British tube-amp awesomeness at your disposal - along with an amazing array of tonal versatility. The Dual Terror boasts a fat channel for warmer tones, while the Tiny Terror channel offers up Tiny Terror-style tones. Plenty powerful for small gigs, the Dual Terror also adapts well to studio and rehearsal use, as you can drop the wattage down to seven or 15 watts for low-volume saturation. Already a favorite with guitarists in many genres, the Dual Terror is a great head with tons of tone!

Great amp head, nice features.

I really like this amp that it drops down to 15/7 watts. I run it thru a carvin 212 and it sounds outstanding..plenty loud enough. I've played it at practices at the full 30 watts, with drum tracks running thru a PA. Keeps up well with that, another guitar and vocals. Great clear tone. Nice distortion on the terror channel, no need for a pedal for what I play (grunge type stuff, drop d). The fat channel is nice as well, I like the tone I can get with some pedals on that channel. Sweetwater is the best. Always happy and outstanding customer service.

Say Hello to My Little Friend!

Say Hello to My Little Friend! Is all I can say but with an Al Pacino Accent like in Scar Face!! Great movie and even better amp. Wow, this thing has some serious versatility. I can take the tiny terror channel from a pristine bell like cleans to a buzz saw if needed. Yet, you don't need to do that with the addition of the Fat Channel. I am playing Metallica Enter Sandman right off the bat with some minor adjustments. This thing has punch on 7watt and 15 watt settings on just 2 EL84 tubes and can sound real nice with drive at bedroom volumes. In addition, on 4 EL84 tubes (All JJ's by the way) I can create some serious air displacement probably enough to rattle and crack my windows in my bedroom if I went for it. I have not gotten higher than 4 on the Fat channel and 6 on the Tiny Terror channel. It sounds great with the PPC 112 with Celestion Vintage 30 in it that I got with it. It sounds even more modern relative to contemporary sound with that cab wired into another Orange PPC412 Compact with Orange Voice of the World speakers in it. You get the best of both worlds. Nice tone. I sometimes wake up at night turn it on and just strum an A cord or an F or some thing to hear it. Then I will either play for an hour then go back to sleep or fall back to sleep right away content just to hear the tone.

Who needs Pedals!!!

Ryan helped me make this selection. I was looking for Tone, and simplicity and this is the one for me. The variable power is also killer. Can rehearse at a good volume without sacrificing tone & sound. Have been playing through a 1 X 12 Cab with a Vintage 30, and sounds awesome. This week I'll be hooking it up to my new 2 X 12 Vintage 30 loaded Cab, and I cannot wait to hear it. I've always been between Fender and Marshall, and this head seems to have filled the void. Screams with my Joe Bonamassa Les Paul, and my Jeff Beck Sig Strat sings through it. Plenty strong enough at half power to cut through the mix too. Play Rock/Blues, rhythm & ;lead. You can't go wrong here. I think I have finally found what I was looking for. Have rehearsed a few times straight into the amp too. Nothing else needed! I may be selling some pedals soon!! Thanks Ryan W. & Sweetwater.

Freaking. Awesome.

This amp is by far amazing. That sweet Orange tone is extremely noticeable when you crank this dude up. The fact that you can switch is between 30, 15, AND, 7 watts is great. I can crank this bad boy up, and i can keep up, and even pass my drummer volume wise. Turn the volume up, mic it with a Shure SM57, and you are stage ready. I have a couple pedals I personally run through mine, but as far as tone, you can't beat this rig.

Big Tone in a Small Package

I love this amp! Just finished recording an album with it, and it was perfect. Plugged into a Mesa 4x12 and on is lowest power setting, I could crank it enough to heat it up good without knocking the house down. This was my first Orange amp. I like the sound and build quality so much that I just ordered a Rockerverb 50 MkII, only because I want something more powerful and with an effects loop for my stage rig. Highly recommended!

Sweetwater Advice

Ed Nystrom

I've been in the market for a small tube guitar head to power a lonely 4x12 Marshall cab in my guitar room, and I recently found its perfect companion in the Orange Dual Terror. From the very first chord I struck, I was blown away by the tight and focused British tube tone. I was extremely excited to hear if I could get that great Orange tone at lower volumes. The amp did not disappoint - it KILLS at all three power settings!

Ryan Schmidt

The Orange Dual Terror Head is a great amp that oozes focused, Brit style tone that can range from sparkly cleans to raging rhythms. The power switching capabilities of this amp are definitely the best part about it! You can switch the power from 30, 15, all the way down to 7 watts. Its simplicity and quality make the Dual Terror perfect for the gigging guitarist, whether onstage or in the studio.

Patrick Cobley

When I started looking for a small amp with British tones, I stumbled upon the Orange Dual Terror and was amazingly surprised! It has switchable 7-, 15-, and 30-watt outputs and can melt my face at all three! Plus, its tone rocks my world! From crisp cleans to fuzzy leads and even high gain grittiness, I can always find the tone I'm looking for! From day one I knew I was in love and it's been my go-to amp ever since!

Ryan Schmidt

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!
