The original Orange Tiny Terror set the bar for portable, all-tube guitar amp heads. The Orange DA15H Dark Terror takes the popular series to new territory with darker, high-gain tones excellently suited for metal and other hard rock genres. This ruggedly constructed and easily portable head packs a 15-watt punch of pure tube tone for the studio, practice space, or small to mid-sized venues. For metal and other rock guitarists searching for the prized tone of the Tiny Terror with a gnarly twist, the Dark Terror is an easy choice.

Hear it in action with this video from Orange:


15 Watts of Pure Tube Tone

The Dark Terror DA15H features a tube complement of three 12AX7 preamp tubes and two EL84 power tubes for a serious wallop of full-bodied, vintage sound. Compared to the original Tiny Terror, the Dark Terror features an additional preamp tube for a total of four stages of gain. The result is a massive amount of gain for furious breakup and distorted thunder at any volume. While the tube-based circuitry ensures outstanding depth and clarity for cleans, the unique gain structure allows this amp to really make its mark with explosive overdriven textures.

Tools to Shape Your Sounds

Like the rest of the Terror series, the Dark Terror provides the ability to craft the perfect expression of your sound with a set of intuitive controls and features. Experiment with different balances of the volume and gain knobs to dial-in a wide range of tonal flavors from subtle cleans to the most aggressive of high-gain distortion. The additional "shape control" allows simple adjustment of the amp's EQ settings to further cater your sound. And like the original Tiny Terror, the Dark Terror is switchable from 15 to 7 watts to accomadate different various volume and power needs. Unlike the original Tiny Terror, the Dark Terror also sports a tube-driven effects loop to route in any number of pedals and outboard processors.

Features:

- Switchable between 15 and 7 watts of all-tube power
- 3 x 12AX7 preamp tubes and 2 x EL84 output tubes
- Three output jacks for flexible connection to speaker cabinets: 2 x 8 ohms and 1 x 16 ohms
- Tube-drive effects loop (1 x 12AT7)
- Gain, shape, and volume controls
- Ruggedly built, vented Zintec chassis
- Included padded gig bag

The Dark Terror features heavy-duty construction that lends it a high degree of durability and helps create its distinctive aggressive sound. The incredibly responsive volume, shape, and gain controls, and the convenient effects loop, give the Dark Terror accessible tonal and stylistic versatility, but the Orange Amp's high-gain, strong mid-range output is optimized for the dark and dirty depths of Hard Rock and Metal.

For even more intimate applications, the Orange Dark Terror can be dialed down to a delicate 7 Watts.

Menacingly small, easily recognizable, this aggressive little amp comes with a mind-blowing sound which combines the Shape control of the Thunder series with the weight and size of the monster Terror family.

With its characteristic fearless Orange Amp looks, heavy duty construction and portability, guitar players everywhere will quickly become attuned to this scary dark force of nature.

Hear its distinctive Orange Amp sound and you will feel this mysteriously attractive force pulling you into the shadow of the Dark Terror. It's everything you want from an Orange Amp. Prepare to ride the Dark Terror storm.

This nasty little tube head amplifier courses with 15 Watts of pure Rock sound, more than enough for practice sessions or mid-sized venues.

"Distorted Mayhem"
Sound: The head is made for metal and it creates that sound. Very Well. I like the fact that this has a great amount of gain built in so you don't need a boost or distortion pedal mostly and when it's Cranked it's amazing the best way to describe the shape knob in the middle turned down is a Peavey 6505 mid heavy crunch then when the shape middle knob is turned all the way up the sound is scooped and heavy warm like a Randall minus some of the dryness and harsh high end With the gain Down it is the usual awesome clear tube tone and add a tad of gain and crank the volume some and there is a great blues sound but the real intention is to turn everything to 11 Feature: An effect loop is great for well.. Effects! The power clip 15 to 7 watt switch is nice when playing at home or stuff like that Ease of Use: 3 knobs and a switch this head is stripped down to basics Quality: Not sure yet but the head is cased twice with like a 1/4 inch of metal so it should be OK Value: This an insanely awesome with endless killer tones totally worth it and great for recording Manufacturer Support: Haven't dealt with the Company yet. The Wow Factor: Very menacing looking when I saw it In The store I thought it was a bass head because it was so dark Overall: Hendrix to Pantera and beyond this head can do it all with A crazy amount of gain and tone shaping I look forward to the getting this head because I played this head for 30 minutes at the local guitar shop
Style of Music: Hendrix to Slayer

Overall: That it is "Dark", I run mine through a Line 6 4x12 loaded with celestion V30's. I'm amazed for how loud this amp is. It can be gigged! Tons of gain! What else do you need to know? This head's awesome especially for the price. I play Lamb of God & As I Lay Dying's music with this amp with 1 Maxon OD808 pedal.
