    Vicious Little Lunch Box!

    After reading reviews on this hybrid tube/solid state amp, I thought it might be good for practice at home and the occasional gig out there. For home use, I dampen the output by putting the speaker in a suit case. This allows me to get the overdriven tone I want, without blowing the windows out. After tweaking tone controls on my guitars (Les Paul and Strat fitted with Seymour Duncan P-Rails), I am having a riot. This amp kicks out great overdriven tone. I back off the volume with a volume pedal, and she cleans up nicely for playing rhythm guitar. This amp really sings when you jack the volume up, as designed. However, by playing with gain, volume and tone controls on the amp, and by occasionally adding a Joyo Vintage Overdrive, I can get her to sing at relatively low volumes. I am not a heavy metal guy. I am more after the Clapton Bluesbreakers sound, with some violin type sustain. This little terror has enough volume for a small gig. This is a great little amp, for the price, or even disregarding the price.

    Tiny in size, HUGE in sound

    When the box arrived I thought there must be another box coming too as I ordered another cabinet to make a "full" stack with this Terror Head and Cabinet. I opened the box and laughed seeing how tiny the amp was. I figured it was money wasted. I was looking for something small to gig with for mic nights and to take with me for practice sessions but this isn't small, it is TINY.
    Soooo, I took the amp and 2 cabinets up to the bedroom and hooked everything up and plugged in. I knew the very first chord that I had discovered something very special!!! This little unit ROCKS. So much so that during practice yesterday with a friend, I had him plug into my Marshall full stack in the living room and I brought the little Orange down for me. I even connected a small Digitech processor to it for effects...
    My buddy was blown away to say the least!!!! He is now going to buy one. DONT let the size fool you, this little Terror has the pure sound of an expensive tube amp with the power of a LARGE amp.
    I will definitely take this to mic nights and small gigs, it is AWESOME. So much so that I am planning on selling a few other amps I own as this will be my go-to unit.
    BUY this!!!!!! You won't be sorry....take that to the bank. I haven't read a bad review on this, now I see why. A big "thank you" to my Sweetwater Rep Ryan Holquist for advice and great service. He's the best!!! If you have never ordered from Sweetwater before, ask for Ryan, you will be so happy you did. You really do get the Sweetest deal from Sweetwater!!!!

    Micro Terror

    I purchased this specifically to use when traveling. In my job I have to leave home 3-4 times a year some times up to a month at a time. This is small enough that it fits in a small backpack with enough room for tuner cables etc. After I got it and plugged it in I was very impressed with the Micro terror. The Cab lacked the bass but it is only an 8" speaker, but when I plugged the head into my PPC212 it really came alive on the low end. Roll off the gain and you can get some pretty good cleans. Crank the gain and it will break up to the point you could play some Thrash if you wanted to. Its very loud and versatile for being an extremely portable and inexpensive option for people looking for a practice amp that can go where you go. Finally I bought it specifically for its small size and portability. I also got sturdy, well made equipment that will stand up to constant travel as well as being able to get a good sound out of such a tiny package. I feel confident enough to say I would use it to double track a main track for added dimension.

    Fantastic deal.

    I'm more of an acoustic guitar guy, but recently I've been getting back into playing electric and needed a cheap amp just so I could hear myself. Orange is a trustworthy brand, so I figured I'd go for this. Unbelievable. I have to keep it cranked down out of respect for my neighbors, but the last time I turned up the gain I was blown away by how great this amp sounds.

    In short, if you have 250 and you need a small amp, stop looking and buy this one.

    It sounds as good as it looks!!!

    When i first saw this thing on sweetwaters website i had no idea what this thing could do!! So i decide to buy it and WOW, this is a tone killer!!! A very small and light weight awesome amp! It won't let you down in any feature! everything is just perfect in this amp, sound quality and material are the main features!! enjoy some great tone!

    Shocked and amazed!

    Always considered buying an orange amp, but didn't want to shell out the money. I thought this would be a small investment to get a taste of the brand. I opened the box and it looked like a little toy, however I was shocked with the quality of the sound and the power that this little thing puts out! I haven't even touched my half stack since I bought this. The presence of the head and the cabinet is just beautiful. It looks like a little toy. It sounds good quiet and cranked up. Nice crisp clean and crunchy lead. Gives you a real "British" kinda sound. The head is super responsive too. You won't regret buying this I promise. Also my first time ordering with Sweetwater and I have to say I'll be back for all my musical needs. The customer service is amazing and they take much care with every order. Very fast friendly service. Thank You!! Will definitely be back for more orange products in the future.

    Bigger doesn't mean better!

    I bought this little set-up as a joke, thinking I would take it to a gig and play a song or too on it. THIS IS NO JOKE!!! This little set up is bad to the bone. It cranks as good, if not better than my Marshall DSL set-up and as clean as my Fender Blues Deluxe. It is so touch sensitive. You won't believe the range of sounds you can get out of this thing. In fact, if you can't get the sound your looking for out of this little set-up, you might not know what your looking for! It's just that good!!!
