Overview

Maintaining the size of the original Tiny Terror, the Terror Bass from Orange Amplifiers is a 500W hybrid bass amp head with a Class D solid-state power section and the AD200B twin-tube 12AX7 preamp.

This Orange bass amp's diminutive size is quite deceiving, especially considering that underneath its sturdy and appealing housing lies an unbelievable 500 watts of class-D solid-state power, paired with a twin tube preamp. The result is a crushing bass power and tone that has put Orange bass amplifiers in a class of their own. The amplifier head features switchable impedance of 4 or 8 ohm, and includes volume, bass, middle, treble, gain, and active/passive switch for further control of your bass tone.

Weighing in at just over 11 lb., the Orange Bass Terror is a leader in ultra-compact and portable bass power. Its size makes this bass amp head ideal for traveling musicians. Take it on the bus, subway, in a backpack, or on a bike to that gig, and rock out knowing the sound from this little Orange bass amp head is loud, and proud, and pumps out incredible tone. Includes padded gig bag.

Note: The Bass Terror bass amp head does not require rebiasing when replacing tubes.

    Comments about Orange Amplifiers Terror Bass 500 Series BT500H 500W Bass Amp Head:

    I love this head! I use it to power an Ampeg SVT810E and it pummels you with bass. Many people are surprised to see that such a small head packs such an enormous punch and I'm constantly being told to turn down. Sounds great with my Ibanez 5 string nice warm sound I've never played anything clearer sounding, including some ampegs, eden, markbass, etc. One of the best heads I've played on for sure and for the money especially.

    Vintage Sound that Weighs 13lbs

    By Daniel Mueller

    from AZ

    Comments about Orange Amplifiers Terror Bass 500 Series BT500H 500W Bass Amp Head:

    I never write reviews. But this thing is worth a review. I'm giving it 5 stars. But that might change. I haven't played a gig with it yet, but so far, in the studio, rehearsals, TV time, etc... it is AWESOME. It has a vintage-flavored growl from the two tubes inside. It has more tone options than a MarkBass. Weighs 50 lbs less than an SVT, and pumps 500 watts. I purchased the SP212 cabinet, and it is fantastic as well. No horn, or tweeter. I keep thinking I'm James Jamerson or Donald Duck Dunn now. I am blown away at how cool this head is. Totally worth the price. Best thing - I throw it in it's travel bag, and roll into the gig holding my cabinet in one hand, bass over the shoulder, and head in the other hand. Mobile gear is the new hip. I'm done with refrigerators, and 75lb tube heads, and gear with wheels. If you want maximum fun, purchase the Orange cabinet that goes with this head. You won't regret it.
