Last christmas I bought an Orange Micro Terror. First of all I always wanted to have an Orange amp and second of all I read and watched quite a lot of really positive reviews on the web. Best of all it is super affordable. Its been a source of constant joy for the last couple of months and I think for this kind of money you can hardly get any tube amp that is more awesome. You can even hook it up to a 4×12″ speaker cab! You won’t get clean tones in this scenario anymore but its definitely loud enough to play through a band rehearsal thanks to the 20W transistor output stage.
There is only one potential problem and that is the external power supply which is cheap china hardware. Mine induced a static hum into the amp which was super annoying. I wrote Orange an email and they’ve sent me a replacement unit free of charge which fixed the problem.
Eventhough I’m still quite an amateur on the guitar I made a short demonstration video attempting to show how versatile and good sounding this little metal box really is. It was also a good opportunity to test whether I could do similar gear review videos with my current setup. First conclusion: iPhone video autofocus is tricky – made the whole thing a bit blurry.
The audio was not post processed. In the end I’m adding in the delay pedal.
As always I’m happy about any meaningful feedback.
