Tiny, and Packed with Attitude

The Orange Signature #4 Jim Root Terror tube guitar amp head is all about attitude. Orange basically shoehorned the sound of Slipknot axeman Jim Root's Rockerverb 100 amp lead channel into a lunchbox-sized, all-tube package. This diminutive 15-watt amp is a beast, with capabilities far beyond high-gain rock and metal. With powerful 3-band EQ, you'll have an easy time sculpting your signature sound, whether you're playing vintage rock, blues, or fusion. You also get a tube-driven FX loop so you can steer your tone in any direction you desire. And a 7-watt switch makes the Orange Jim Root Terror head even more versatile.

  • Diminutive size with tons of tone
  • 15 watts of attitude with major versatility
  • Take your tone with you
Diminutive size with tons of tone

Orange Amps' Jim Root Terror puts 15 watts of tube amp mojo at your disposal - along with an amazing array of tonal versatility. Drive it hard and this little guy puts out a stunning amount of gain. Plenty powerful for small gigs, the Tiny Terror also adapts well to studio and rehearsal use, as you can drop the wattage down to seven watts for lower-volume saturation.

15 watts of attitude with major versatility

An all-tube, 15-watt portable guitar head, the Orange Jim Root Terror features a unique two stage preamp which offers huge tonal range using the gain and volume pots. Add in the tone-shaping capabilities of the onboard bass, middle, and treble controls, and you've got massive versatility. When driven, this little amp has scary amounts of gain, putting many higher-priced boutique amps to shame.

Take your tone with you

The Orange Jim Root Terror has been built to the same rugged specification as its bigger Orange siblings; its portability makes it perfect for gigging around town or rehearsing. The Tiny Terror even switches from 15 to seven watts for studio use and recording. This little amplifier is a record producer's dream and comes complete with a padded travel gig bag.

This amp is a blast!

Small amps have been big over the last few years, and there's a ton of them out there that deliver. The Orange #4 Jim Root Terror is no exception to this rule, and it's a ton of fun to play. The first thing you'll notice is that the amp is single channel, but don't let that deceive you. If you're someone who switches channels a lot live, this probably isn't what you're looking for, but if you're looking for something for studio use, or tend to stick to a single channel during a gig, the amp won't disappoint. The three band EQ is nice. Instead of the single tone knob you find on the other Terror series amps, you get a little bit more flexibility, and this is a great feature. The tone is where it's at on this thing... it's a rocker, and the gain knob is incredibly flexible. You can tone it down and get some decent clean tones, (I like a little bit of bite on the clean, and this does it very well) and the drive will take you from hard rock around 12 o'clock to more than you need if you turn it all the way up. I set mine around the 1 o'clock position for most stuff, for a solid metal tone with a ton of punch. The amp sounds great in either 7 or 15 watts, and doesn't get thin like some on the lower wattage setting. If you pair this with a good overdrive in front, and a delay through the effects loop, you will find yourself enjoying tons of great tone. It's a simple amp, but it's a ton of fun to play. It's got that Orange tone, nice and punchy, but not terribly overcompressed. I highly recommend this... mine gets a ton of play in the studio, and it records well!

This is my new best friend

I am completely blown away by this little head. I purchased the head and matching cab. It takes you from classic rock tones to wall smashing gain with a twist of the wrist. It is the BIG BAD WOLF that'll blow your house down. I've made numerous purchases from Sweetwater, always a pleasant experience. Phil Schwan is my rep. give him a call, best customer service period.

this one should be called "Crush"

I have owned JCM900 and several mesas. don't get me wrong, I love mesas, but this little thing will eat just about anyone's lunch. It's class A, which means it likes to run hot. Get the power tubes warmed up good and it produces some of the best, most lush distortion out there. Having the three eq knobs is a must, like the mesas, the eq knobs have a ton of influence, just 10 degrees of adjustment changes everything. I wish it had a slave out, so I could run bigger amps behind it. It does lack a little clean headroom, but I rarely play clean. If you like the dirty tones, from just pushed to waaaay over the top grind, you must audition this amp. for the money, you can't beat it. Oh, the customer service is top notch as well.

metal meets portable

OK quite simply a very simple straightforward Toneacious piece of equipment. I poped it out of the 3 boxes. Yes 3 of them and 4 minutes later was chugging through this little monsters tonal range. It excels at higain madness and is loud as hell plenty for micd up gigs . I ran mine through a cheap Marshall mg4x12 that has seen some use and it sounds awesome. Next I put a cheapo Dan electro 7 band geq in the fx loop and tweaked in and got right down into the fires of infernal metal tone. Big fat dynamic rancid tone I've owned boogies marshalls Randall's and this thing goes toe to toe even with my beloved mark 3's rhythm two channel the brutality is right there buy this amp if you seek to anhialat your friends and guests

Pure Rock and Roll

This amp is bad to the bone. Straight up manly rock and roll tone. It can produce a one of a kind clean. Then it can bring it, straight up mean. 15 watts Down right louder than hell Trust me, my neighbors will tell Ya it's only just one channel If that's a problem, go iron your flannel I could go on and on about my story Just see for yourself and witness the glory
