I bought this little set-up as a joke (I also got the Orange PPC108 Speaker cabinet). BUT THIS IS NOT A JOKE. This little set-up is bad to the bone. It cranks as good as, if not better than my Marshall DSL set-up and is as clean as my Fender Blues Deluxe. When I first plugged in to this little guy I was amazed (Really) not much catches me by surprise. It's so touch sensitive. If you can't find the sound your looking for with this set-up. You might not know what it is your looking for. I'll be using this on the road. I'll just put a Sennheiser e906 in front of the PPC108 cabinet and into the board. I can't wait to hear the laughter and then the roar!

Great size, easy to carry around from place to place. Was a little disappointed with its sound quality, was expecting more from its tube pre amp. Great for quiet house practice though and it did take pedals pretty well. I would say this amp sounds best with a quality OD pedal rather than using the amps gain but I will be returning it to find something a bit better sounding.

WOW!!!!!!!

By William Marion

from Taylor, MI

Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Terror MT20 20W Hybrid Guitar Amp Head:

Having a recording studio means I have to keep several amps, guitars, and various other things on hand all of the time. Since amps such as my Marshall JVM410, and others in that size take up a lot of room. If this Orange Micro head was half the amp people talked about, I would be happy. I'm not happy, I am beyond that word and not sure what to call it. After plugging this into my Marshall JCM900 1960 Lead 4X12 cabinet, I couldn't believe how something so small could produce this huge sound. You can throw your distortion pedal away, when you turn the gain up, you have all the distortion you need. I have a Zoom G3 Multi effects pedal, and no matter what settings I used, they were all great. It should be noted that it also has a good clean when the gain is turned down.

Great for the money

By Curtis Hill

from Fallbrook, CA

Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Terror MT20 20W Hybrid Guitar Amp Head:

Amazing little amp. Functions are straight forward. Provides a lot of power for something so small. Has become my go-to amp for practicing. I've used it with a Marshall 1960 4x12 cabinet and it sounds awesome. Most of the time I use it with a Marshall 1x8 speaker cabinet from a mini stack I bought back in the late 80s. I would highly recommend this little amp. The drawbacks? There's a lot of background noise coming from the amp...and it's even louder if you turn the volume down on your guitar. The other drawback is the power supply...I would prefer a normal power cord rather than a power adapter. All of that said...definitely worth the money!

Great Buy!

By Michael Haver

from Athens,GA

Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Terror MT20 20W Hybrid Guitar Amp Head:

With good gear, the micro terror is everything you want in an incredibly small package. If you're a rock player who likes to turn up the gain, this amp is for you. If you need a practice amp with tube sound at an affordable price, this amp is for you. If you're looking for a nice clean sound, you want want to look at the fender super champ xd. But that's not what Orange is selling. Surprisingly this amp has a ton of headroom and powers my 4X12 Orange cab. It's the next best thing to having a real Tiny Terror. My apartment has some thin walls, but the micro terror helps me get away with having an amp. I can always plug my headphones in for some decent tone. The headphone jack is mediocre to tell the truth. The other features like the aux jack are brilliant. I love plugging in my ipod or macbook to this head and jamming by myself. It's just everything you want for a high gain mini head. Tone wise, it's very close to the tiny terror. I play them side by side all the time. The thing to remember is that is it simply not the Tiny Terror, but a very close version to it. It's a freaking steal at $150 and i bought one right after playing one. If you love Orange tone for $150 and I'm pretty sure everyone does...this is the amp for you. I have had no problems of any sort. Yes, it's a tube amp, but it has a dummy load for the dummies It's fantastic since it's Orange but you knew that when you saw which company made it. It's the best purchase I've made in a long time. It will not disappoint. Buy it now...no joke.

Needs a Little Help

By Marc

Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Terror MT20 20W Hybrid Guitar Amp Head:

This is a great little amp for the money its weighs less than some of my pedals. It runs a 4x12 very well and keeps up with other amps well. With that being said it needs a little help tone wise. The 12ax7 it comes stock with didn't give it enough punch for me. Adding an 808 in front of it helped but I didn't want to have this thing and carry around a pedal that cost more than it so i put a 12ad7 in the tube socket, if you buy this amp DO THAT! it makes louder, more gain, and better midrange.

The biggest sounding 4" x 6.5" amp EVER!

By Cody Stoner

from Wichita, KS

Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Terror MT20 20W Hybrid Guitar Amp Head:

I just got this amp yesterday and I'm already totally blown away by it. I ran it through a Marshall 4x12 cab and was pleasantly surprised at how well it sounded through that big of a cabinet. I could not make myself walk away from it and ended up plugging in my headphones and playing around with it until about 2:00 in the morning. I know a lot of people will whine about it not being all tube but I think Orange nailed this and for the price iit would be hard to find something better.

Almost there....

By Tanner Gwaltney

from Cleveland, TN

Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Terror MT20 20W Hybrid Guitar Amp Head:

I matched this little head up with a Raven 1x12 cab and its pretty cool. The tube preamp brings some great tone to the table, but the solid state power section sucks it up a bit. It lacks too much of the responsiveness of a full tube amp, and it has too much of the midrange. For the money, this amp is a really great little tone monster, and would make an awesome first amp. My ears are just very picky in what they want to hear, and the solid state power section isn't cutting it. It looks ridiculously funny/cool/groovy though.

Best bang for the buck in amp heads ever.

By Steven Tew

from Twin Cities, MN

Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Terror MT20 20W Hybrid Guitar Amp Head:

I am so tired of toting heavy gear. Wanting a light weight amp to plug in to a cab I built which would replace the need to carry my Traynor combo, I auditioned a lot of the small heads. Not one of them compares favorably to this little gem. This thing is about the size of a shoe. You can carry it with one finger. It has quality tone and is exceptionally responsive to the character of the pickups that you use to feed it. Playing a Gretsch or a Tele Thinline with humbuckers you can play pretty clean and roll up to a mellow roar without a pedal, just using the volume knob on the guitar. My Godin's pickups don't have as much output, but the lovely character comes through as well as any other amp I have played. The Gretsch really sounds great played with the gain turned down and the volume way up. It has excellent headroom and dynamics. Not as great as many very good tube amps, but you would have to be nit picking to complain... at less than 25% of the cost. It seems to be an honest 20 watts. That means that it is loud. If you like a nice distortion I am pretty sure it would stand up to a moderately loud drummer in a small venue. As to reliability, I am thinking of just getting a second one as a spare, it is so light and small and inexpensive.

microTERORRR!!!

By Mike Reed

from harrisburg,PA

Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Terror MT20 20W Hybrid Guitar Amp Head:

I seen some vids of this thing in action online so I went out and bought one. I am extremely impressed haha. I sold my half stack that day. and been using this since!. i run the gain at 1/2 , tone at 11oclock and volume about 1/2 to 3/4 to gig shows with a full band (mic to pa) through a 4x12 cab. I have it matched up with a mxr fullbore metal pedal with gain a little less then 1/4 just to boost it up some and some effects pedals and use a EQ pedal to do the rest. also having a OD or distortion pedal works great to have a clean channel. i absolutely love this monster and have no problem gigging in a full band on a big stage or small club. im gonna match it up with a orange 2x12 or 4x12 cab. id rather the 2x12 to make gig load in even easier and try a maxon od pedal also and see what i like better. overall this thing is awesome. and i got great reviews from sounds guys and the audience about the great tone. buy it and try some different pedals for your style and you WILL NOT be disappointed! i play alternative rock to melodic/hardcore and found a great tone after some tweeks. eventually i will upgrade to a bigger orange head but ill still bring this micro monster to gigs and show it off! orange lifer!

Small amp. Huge Tone!!!

By Peter Robins

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Terror MT20 20W Hybrid Guitar Amp Head:

OK. I was going to wait until the honeymoon was over, but I can't. First off my gear: PRS SE Singlecut with Seymour Duncan JB/JAZZ. Marshall MC412A Cab. First time I turned it on it brought a smile to my face. One thing I noticed was it sounded a little fizzy with the gain cranked. That's why I gave it a 4 rating. You see, it comes with a JJ ECC83 stock. I have never been a fan of JJ's. I had a Groove Tube Chinese 12AX7 lying around and popped it in. It totally transformed it. Smoothed out the gain. Now I can't wait to get home from work and play. Everything from a nice clean to a dirty overdrive to a nasty crunch. If you are looking for a death metal amp, look elsewhere. Throw a tube screamer in the front of it and you could do some thrash. I plugged in another guitar that I set up for standard C and got some great dark sounding "Sword" tones. I highly recommend this little amp! Buy it! It will not disappoint.
