At under three pounds, the Micro Dark amplifier head is a cinch to transport to any recording session, rehearsal, or gig. And its diminutive size makes it an easy fit in any room, no matter how tight the space may be.

Killer Orange tone doesn't have to come from massive rigs. The PPC108 guitar speaker cabinet clocks in at just over 10" across. Designed to be coupled with the Orange Micro Dark guitar amp head, the PPC108 houses a special-design 8" speaker for punchy tone. The same rugged construction used with larger Orange cabinets was used on the PPC108. And the same cool black Tolex, basketweave grille cloth, crest, and badge identify this cab as distinctly part of Orange's Terror line. If you have the Orange Micro Dark head, then you need the Orange PPC108 guitar speaker cabinet. Grab one and start rocking today!

WOW, are you kidding me!

When I opened the two tiny boxes I thought oh no this one's going back. Then I plugged it in and was amazed. I was skeptical about the 8 in Cab but after plugging in my different guitars and boards I just laughed and thought this is the real deal. I have it on a wood floor so it sounds nice and BIG. It's a keeper. What's funny is I can't stop looking at it and laughing at the sound you get out of this tiny little almost toy sized head. You can see the little tube in there glowing and it's just hilarious. I love it. In this case size doesn't matter! A 2x12 cab may be in order with this little monster. Amarylis came through again checking to make sure everything was going great and she is a joy to talk to. Nice to have a reassuring person looking out for you. The packaging was excellent, and it came very fast. Sweetwater made my day again.

Very Practical, Amazing Value and Quality

This tiny head and cabinet serves up extreme value for money. Let's get straight to it:Pro's20W SS power and 7AX12 Valve pre-amp dishes up a very lovely ORANGE British toneCleans are OK, but this Dark series is really designed for heavy distortion The EQ is very simple - full clockwise twist and you get the scooped "rectifier" sound, or the opposite way for a more classic Scorpions, AC/DC etc. Build quality is nothing short of exceptional as expected from ORANGEDon't let 20W fool you, it has more than enough power to drive a 4x12 stack (however it may need to be mic'ed up if playing in a gig). For home use, its more than sufficient. Cons (my only one con)The 1x8 cabinet does not do this head justice. I strongly recommend upgrading to atleast a 1x12. I ran the head through a Marshall 1936 Vintage 2x12...all I can say is that everyone was blown away with the tone and shear power .As always, Sweetwater is my # 1 go to and they are the best in the music industry. Sweetwater is loving and caring for our musicians !! My sales engineer Andrew Teeple always gives me shoppers delight with his excellent service and advice ! Cheers !

Holy Crap this thing is loud!

The amp head came in first, connected it into my Mesa Boogie 4x12 cab and was blown away. Made me almost second guess about having a Dual Rectifier. But I was quite impressed. The cab came in a few days later, opened the box in the car and the thing was so small, I didn't think it was gonna be able to handle what came out of the Mesa cab, no way. Well I got home earlier and connected it up and played, well you blew me away twice in a row! This thing sounds really nice is all I have to say...

Finally found a great amp!!!

I follow Orange on instagram and the day they posted a pic of this amp to announce it, I knew I needed one! I called Bob Furlong the next day to order one! On a side note, I have to say that Sweetwater absolutely has the best customer service out of any company that I know. Most people would order online to make it quick and easy but I prefer to call just to get a chance to talk to Bob. I have had Bob as my sales person for over 5 yrs and he has been with me through the journey of finding the right gear for me. Back to the amp now. I mainly play at home and church with a fairly silent stage so amps have been a battle. I have used several multieffect type pedals like the sansamp fly rig5 and the zoom G3 just to work with the situation but, I really love tube amps so I was never happy. Most recently I had a Blackstar HT1 which is an awesome amp but with the lack of headroom, it gets very difficult to run reverbs and delays into it without it getting really fuzzy sounding. The micro dark is perfect in so many ways for what I needed because of the effects loop and the fact that it is a hybrid amp. As most people that are familiar with tube amps know, you get different sounds at different volumes because the output tubes are getting pushed harder. With the micro dark, you get an awesome saturated tube preamp sound and then amplify it with a solid state power amp so it is very consistent. You don't have to set the volume high to get a good tone which is good for bedroom or silent stage situations. Part of what really sold me on this is the effects loop. I have been playing for over 20 years so I am kind of old school and don't like pedalboards or tons of pedals but also don't like the poor quality tone you get with some multieffects. So, with the effects loop, I hook up a zoom ms70cdr to get all the effects I need and it doesn't kill the original tone. I actually a/b'd the amp with the pedal in the effects loop and without it and I could not notice an audible change in the original tone. But wait, there is more! The other thing I needed was an amp that would not only accommodate my need for a simple setup with an effects loop and low volume for a silent stage, but that would also have the ability to be used in a venue setting. This amp gets loud! I was shocked by the volume I got even at 12 o'clock. It can be used with or larger cabinet or you can use the cab sim through a PA. This is really an all around perfect amp for me and I hope that it is for someone else too! Thanks Sweetwater!
