For the past decade, amp manufacturers have waged a low-wattage amp war, all vying to produce the greatest sounding tube-powered, low-output machine.
Orange’s new Dual Dark 50 (which is also available as a 100-watt head) does far more than just repackage the Dark Terror’s high-gain engine. It offers earth-shaking tonal depth, power attenuation and two highly versatile channels, one of which is an entirely new dynamic preamp section created specifically for the Dual Dark series.
The all-new Orange Dual Dark Series is a range of high-end dual channel amps. Put simply, these amps showcase Orange Amplification at their most innovative. The new amps build on the brand’s reputation for creating the ultimate British guitar tone.
Some storied amp manufacturers are happy to chase the next trend-setting sound or reissue inferior modern versions of their classic offerings. Orange Amplification, on the other hand, has devoted itself to refining the gear behind its long-loved, uniquely expressive, valve-derived tones.
At first glimpse, the Orange Micro Terror amp head looks like a tiny scale model of the already diminutive Orange Tiny Terror head. After hearing it plugged in and cranked up, it seems more like a cunning magic trick, because your eyes will tell you that there’s no possible way an amp that small can sound so good and produce volume output that loud.
The guys at Orange Amplification have just posted a series of new demo videos featuring guitarist Monte Pittman. From Orange: "Monte Pittman has just come out of the studio where he has been recording a series of high-quality videos demonstrating all Orange Amplification products. Monte has also just finished recording his third album, The Power of Three. To celebrate, Orange is debuting five of his most metal video demos!"
