Orange Micro Dark Terror Mini Guitar Amp

Building on the overwhelming success of the acclaimed Dark Terror and Dual Dark amps, Orange distilled thousands of customer demands into a pint-sized valve hybrid head -- the Micro Dark.

The Micro Dark shares the same intuitive Shape control combined with a new 12AX7-driven high gain preamp section which yields screaming dirty tones that make a mockery of its miniature frame. Like its bigger brothers, however, the Micro Dark's smoky black chassis and simple layout actually disguises its cunning versatility.

Of course, there's plenty of gain on tap to satisfy even the most discerning devotee of distortion, but this little beast is by no means just a one-trick Metal monster! Beneath the menacing exterior you'll find a rich and diverse palette of classy and confident tones. From squeaky clean to brash and mean -- whatever your style -- you're gonna love this thing.

Other features include a transparent fully buffered effects loop and a headphone output with Orange's popular CabSim circuitry. When with PPC108 cabinet, the Micro is an ideal practice rig...Plug into something a little larger, though, and you might find your new secret weapon in the studio!

The Micro Dark sports a new high gain circuit which blends valve and solid state technology. The preamp uses single 12AX7/ECC83 valve and produces a huge range of usable tones with warm cleans, smooth overdrive and fat, singing distortion. Its robustly designed solid state output section means the Micro Dark can be paired with any 8-16 Ohm cabinet. Plus, it's so small you could lose it!

Orange's exclusive Shape control varies the midrange response whilst interacting with the bass and treble. Working from the 12 o'clock position, a subtle nudge to the left adds more midrange and smooths the highs. A clockwise notch or two reduces the mids and brightens the tone. At the extremes the Shape's effect becomes even more pronounced, especially as you begin to push the Gain control. A scooped, thrashy voicing with a 'smiley face' EQ is easily achieved in the fully clockwise position, whilst turning fully anti clockwise aggressively boosts the mids, for a more 'classic' bark.

The Micro Dark's fully buffered, low impedance loop allows for any number of effects and cables to be patched in without sacrificing tone. It's incredibly transparent, meaning your pedal arsenal will perform to its absolute peak.

A popular feature on Orange's Crush Series amps, the headphone output includes our CabSim circuitry which faithfully emulates the sound of a mic'd Orange 412" cabinet loaded with the flagship Voice of the World speakers. Use headphones for silent practice or connect to a mixer/recording console to capture huge, authentic Orange tones in the studio.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (8 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Monster tone, questionable size... Wizardry! "
Sound: Monster distortion when you need it, sparkly cleans when you want. The shape feature lets you dial in your perfect sound. Feature: Lightweight and portable, obviously! The shape feature is a huge selling point. CabSim on headphone out makes it an even cooler amp for recording and playing quietly. EFFECTS LOOP! 'nuff said. Ease of Use: Volume, Shape, Gain. Dassit. Doesn't get much simpler than that. Oh, and EFFECTS LOOP! Quality: Hard metal casing, hard to dent. All the pots are smooth and don't crack up and the imputs/output jacks are firm and sturdy. Value: Selling point of 189 is beyond worth it for the amount of sound you get out of this thing and the versatility it provides. Manufacturer Support: Never had to deal with support The Wow Factor: Again, that Shape feature is just.. wow. Also the fact that its so tiny, smaller than a lunchbox, and it blows many things out of the water... Overall: For my first Orange Amp, I purchased the 'regular' Micro Terror, the white one. It treated me well and I had fantastic tone and options, the only thing it seemed to lack was just a tad bottom end. Although I mostly used it for effects like delays and reverbs and clean tones similar to Angels and Airwaves and punk overdrives like Sum 41. the Micro DARK, however... is a different beast. The shape feature on this amp is tremendous. I worked at a music store when we just got them in stock, and I just kind of blew them off thinking it was just a black Micro Terror... until I plugged it in. There is near infinite amounts of tonal options you get from this amp. Turn down the gain and raise the volume, I hit the full potential of what the Micro Terror gave me. Crank up the gain and I get all the distortion and punch I want. Love using it with my TS9 overdrive. This amp is well worth the money. Its lightweight, inexpensive and reliable as an amp can be. Starting to think hybrids are the future...
Style of Music: U2, Angels and Airwaves style delays and effects, Sum 41/Blink 182 punk sounds, A Day to Remember, The Devil Wears Prada and Kil

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Plenty of amp for the size and price"
Overall: I received my Micro Dark Terror yesterday,it was packaged very nicely,so I took it out of the packaging,it feels solid,great construction,I plugged it up into my 4-12"-300 watt speaker cabinet and I was and still amazed how awesome it sounds! even at a very low volume it sounds great,the shape knob is the heart of this amp,it creates any sound I need from fairly clean to major distortion,which is primarily what I use it for. as I started turning the volume up it really came to life,the highest gain settings have a round thick sound,not overly saturated but plenty of usable gain,then turning the shape knob counter clockwise it starts getting cleaner,and more of a treble response,I am running my reverb pedal through the effects loop,really expanded the sound,really spacious quality sounds..for me this amp is a great deal and delivers what I was hoping for,I even have the amps gain up all the way,and roll the volume off and it cleans up nicely or with some great crunch,its a keeper for me,i am glad that I made this purchase..for me Zzounds customer service is second to none,all you have to do is call them up or shop online,they deliver every time,their employees are knowledgable and friendly and get the job done,,I ordered this Micro Dark Terror online on a Tuesday evening,got the shipping notice emails on Wednesday late afternoon,and the package arrived at my front door on Thursday by 1030 am!! so fast !! also Zzounds pay as you play is awesome,I have purchased 3 items on the pay as you play plan,and you always get the best service!! Thank you Zzounds!! I have never had to use Oranges customer service on any of their products,but they still get 5 stars from me.
