Orange Amplification launched the Micro Terror amplifier - their smallest Terror ever! Building on the winning recipe of the rest of the popular Terror series, the Micro Terror retains the beautiful unpretentious design, delivering a classic Orange sound way bigger than it looks, with a size and weight making it the most portable Terror yet!

With a high tensile steel case it is built to the same rugged specifications as the other members of the Terror family and is incredibly compact and highly portable. This is a true Orange Amp classic, with masses of vintage British character, clean crunch and full-on overdrive sounds.

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!

I bought one of these used at Guitar Center because 1) It is probably the only Orange amp I can afford and 2) It just looks cool. I have two other hybrid tube/solid state amps and this one is disappointing in comparison. I use it with the matching Orange 8" cabinet and the sound is just not impressive. You can crank up the gain and get a nice tube 'singing' tone, but that's about it. It is a very cool toy, but I find it limited in terms of being able to get a variety of tones. I may try substituting some different model tubes and experimenting with different speaker cabinets. This is definitely not my 'go to' amp for anything.

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

        went to Guitar Center and tried it out in-store. They had it hooked up to the 8" speaker that Orange pairs it with.
        I honestly hated how it sounded through the speaker but as I turned up the volume I noted that it sounded better but still left a lot to desire. I told the clerk I needed a bigger speaker as I'd be playing it through a 4X12 cab and I had heard it online sounding great.
        We went into the used room, hooked up the amp and I cranked the volume to about 3 or four and the amp started to sing. Got plenty of crunch and plenty of tone variety through the 4x12.
        Great amp, NEEDS, NEEDS, NEEDS at least a 12" speaker. I'm now looking to pick up a Micro Dark for more aggressive tones.

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

            Great amp. I paired it up with the PPC112 speaker cabinet. I play an Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro through it and it sound pretty awesome. It handles a 4x12 cabinet very well also. I use it in our band practice and it handles it very well. It takes my pedal board very well to. Good clean tone with the gain dialed down. I leave the gain down and use distortion pedals to switch back and forth from a clean to a dirty sound. Over all, it is a good amp to use for just about anything.

            Needs a Little Help

            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.

            Same bang, less buck

            By Mike

            from Chicago, IL

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

            I have owned and played through half stacks for over 20 years and just grew sick and tired of lugging around the rig. Especially trying to play small clubs. I bought a 2x12 cabinet and was looking for a small, inexpensive head to power it. This little guy works great! I don't know anybody that has had any reason to turn up a 100 watt tube head to max volume, either at rehearsal or on a stage. Mine always stayed at 1/4 volume and was plenty loud. This 20 watt amp is perfect. I crank the volume and gain both up to halfway and have a pretty loud little rig. If you need more control then the one tone knob, just get a 7-band EQ pedal. Problem solved. I play blues/rock with a strat running through a couple of tube screamers and an EQ pedal. Loads of compliments on my tone. This little rig rocks! No more asking my singer to help me carry my rig up/down stairs!

            PROBABLY not what you think! Rock on...

            from Rochester NY

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

            I've had this amp for about a month now and have ran it through both my marshall 1960 4x12 at 16ohms, and 4ohms, also my 1x12 cab running at 8ohms with an Eminenece Red Coat speaker I also bought from guitar center! Anyway, all of the youtube videos you see, including the chappers ones are somewhat misleading. I'm not sure if it is the mic's they are using on these youtube videos or the pedals their putting in front or what BUT, this amp DOES NOT sound insane like it does on youtube. It has a ton of mid range, and has a rather hollow, windy sound to it. the tone knob very VERY sensitive. The amp works fantastic, and is really cool, don't get me wrong I like it as my bedroom practice amp. PLENTY of volume too. It just really does not have a full bassy sweet tone like it does on youtube. I thought maybe my amp was broken at first when I got it home and heard it through real life ears instead of online videos. It's a great practice amp, and it really looks cool but even as the guy from Orange at NAMM said... it is a novelty amplifier, not a series gigging one. It does clean and crunch tones the best, not quite enough gain for full on metal by its self. If you have an extra cab laying around and/or do not want to warm up your big tube amp for just some quick guitaring, its a great buy. Also... my main reason got getting this amp was the headphone jack and let me tell you.. its a JOKE! Sounds real bad through the headphone jack. The MP3 is fun to mess with however.
