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!

Get the PPC 1x8 Cabinet to make a tidy little 1/2 or full stack. It looks cute and cuddley.... until you plug it in. Suddenly your face starts to get a little hot, but not unbearable.

Unplug from the 1x8 and plug it into a 1x12 or 2x12 cabinet then take this bad boy to rehearse with your band. Sure, they'll make fun of you for the 4 seconds it takes to turn it on and play the first chord. Your face will heat up a little more, and then your ears begin feeling a little damp. Then you think to yourself, "Wait a minute, this really sounds much better. Did I accidentally leave my 50 watt head plugged in?"

Now you're at the gig. You brought your 4x12 cabinet. But wait, this won't power a 4x12 cab, will it? Yes it will. Like crazy. The guys in your band know better than to tease the Micro Terror. Now it's time to prove it to the rest of the world. Trust me, they'll all be able to hear it. The bottom end response is killer, the gain is sick and the volume is crushing. Now your face is melting and your ears are bleeding, but you can't stop smiling!

The EQ seems to be active in the sense that 12 o'clock is flat. When you turn it up, the highs get boosted and the lows get cut at the same time.

This will fit in your gigbag or gear box... or your mouth.

Buy it and love it.

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:

    I decided to go with the Micro Terror because of the price and because it was a brand I've never played before. I plugged this into my MA412 cabinet loaded with Eminence speakers and MY LAWD after tweaking the settings to my liking, I got that nice vintage British crunch you'd get from the old Marshalls. I use my RP500 as my effects for distortion and the simulated tube screamer gives me a KILLER bluesy crunch. It blows my MA100H out of the water and runs circles around it. Who ever thought a little lunch box could produce such gorgeous crunch and cleans? If you're a bluesy/classic rock guitar man like myself, you have to pick one up. You will not be disappointed.

      Excellent quality in a very compact package. I test drove this amp and after 15 minutes of pure joy, I bought it with the 8" speaker cab and gig bag, lovin' it. Really delivers w/my Telecaster like I could not believe, blew me away!

          I bought this as a back up for a larger combo. It the power from this thing is amazing. You can definitely push a 412 cab. I use is with a 212 cab with a Celestion Vintage 30 and Avatar Hellatone 60. It pushes this cab hard... The tone is not what most people look for but if you're a pedal nerd like me, there will be no issues. Well worth the money for a fun amp....

            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.

                Was in the local music store and saw this little guy in the corner. Giggled at it because it was pretty cute. Looked at some bigger heads and cabs but they were a little out of my budget. Asked the salesman if he ever heard this one power a 4x12 cabinet. We both laughed and he said no, but he'd like to. Plugged it into a 90 watt cabinet loaded with Celestions. Needless to say, the laughter stopped. now I play and laugh for a different reason. My little "Clementine" is so much fun.

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

                    So I show up at rehearsal with this tiny little box. The other guitar player asks me "What did you buy now?" "My new amp." He laughs. Then I plugged it in and hit my first power chord. He was amazed at the sound coming from this tiny little box. I play through a 1x12 cabinet loaded with a Patriot Texas Heat speaker.
                    I actually bought this for a practice amp so I wouldn't have to keep setting up my regular head at home and haul it to rehearsals. But when I got it and listened to it I knew I had to take it to practice and give it a try. It more than held its own with full volume rehearsal. I used it with my Fender reverb pedal and a Dunlop volume pedal to make it easier to roll back on the volume for cleaner sounds since it is only a one channel amp. This amp did great. Now truth be told no, it will not be replacing my Hughe and Kettner as my main gigging amp, but yes it can be used for a gig in a small to medium venue. I will be carrying it with me to all gigs just in case something happens to my main amp. It's small enough for that.
                    I have also tried JJs 12ax7 and Tung Sol 12ax7 gold tubes in it. The Tung Sol tube gave it a huge volume boost. Almost too much. I put the JJ tube back in when I took it to rehearsal.
                    So, I am very pleased and impressed with this purchase.
