"Monster tone, questionable size... Wizardry! "
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
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...

Sound
Monster distortion when you need it, sparkly cleans when you want. The shape feature lets you dial in your perfect sound.

Features
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 read more 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...

Musical Background:
guitar, bass, drums. producer. record and jam at home studio.

Musical Style:
U2, Angels and Airwaves style delays and effects, Sum 41/Blink 182 punk sounds, A Day to Remember, The Devil Wears Prada and Kil
