Overview

The Orange Signature #4 Jim Root Terror Head is modeled after the Dirty Channel on the same amp that Jim Root plays in the studio and on the road, the Orange Rockerverb 100. This all-tube, 15W amp is capable of far more than high gain rock and metal though. With a full 3-band EQ players will find it easy to dial in everything from vintage rock to blues and beyond. The addition of a tube-driven FX loop allows the user to take the tone in any direction they want.

  • Single channel
  • All tube
  • High gain 4-stage preamp

First of all, this is a really great amp. The sound is fantastic and it has all the gain I could ever imagine wanting. Also, the gain is quite warm and does not have the same fizzy voicing that the Dark Terror suffers from.

Unfortunately, this amp did not work for me since I bought it for bedroom use. It is super loud! You'd think you'd be able to turn the volume down and it'd sound great but that isn't the case here. The volume on the 7 watt setting really needs to be at about 10 o'clock in order for the tubes to be pushed and for the sound to clean up. Anything 9 o'clock or lower and there is a major change in the amp's voicing. It's not that it's a bad sound, it just doesn't sound anywhere near as good as when the tubes are pushed.

The gain buzz is pretty noisy when not playing so you might want to invest in a noise gate if you plan on using this in a live setting.

The harmonics are amazing! Whether you're using traditional harmonics or pinch harmonics both ring out clear as a bell and are super easy to perform. Palm muting is also a metal player's dream! Very tight and punchy.

If volume is not an issue then you'll love this amp! It really does sound like a miniature Rockerverb without the reverb option, and that alone makes this one fantastic deal!

This amp is surprisingly versatile, but more of the "Jack of all trades, master of none" kind of versatile. The gain is a little fizzy, grainy and unpleasant. Overall its a fun little amp to play, and has a very colorful clean tone, albeit only at quiet volumes due to the lack of channel switching. Also worth mentioning, this amp's gain is miles above the dark terror, which is miles above the tiny terror, but it's still just not a good metal amp, like the Jim Root endorsement would suggest.

    Comments about Orange Amplifiers Tiny Terror TT15JR Jim Root #4 Signature 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    First of all, This amp was designed to be a modern low wattage rock amp. 7 or 15 watts. Some reviewers give it a bad review based on unrealistic expectations. I use it in studio and rehearsal. Very loud for wattage. I put a reverb and a sonic max in the effects loop and can get HUGE, tight bottom end or fairly clean mid gain tones. Has an outstanding "violin" type single note lead tonality. Excellent crunch to "mean" rhythm tones. If I need to record cleaner Am type tone I use my Egnater Tweaker as it excels at that. I mostly use single coils, but sounds great with Humbuckers also. A little pricey? yep. A little fizzy on rhythm? back off the gain. Overall for heavier rock, low wattage single channel amp, haven't heard anything better. 4.5 stars

    Comments about Orange Amplifiers Tiny Terror TT15JR Jim Root #4 Signature 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    This guitar amp has a lot of mids and highs, especially considering that it is a slipknot/ stone sour signature amp. The bass response is loose in detuned guitars and in 7 string guitars, so this is not the amp for you if you rely on a huge and tight low end like nu metal. This amp has a lot of gain potential, but when you crank the gain, you get a fizzy, grainy distortion. This guitar amp has limited headroom due to it being 25 watts. It is still a very loud amp for being 25 watts. If you are a numetaller, save some cash and buy an amp built for a huge and tight low end like a mesa boogie rectifier or a rivera knucklehead amp. If you like jim root and are a fan of the sound of a rockerverb, but don't have enough cash to buy a rockerverb, then I would recommend this amp for you. This amp is more of a rock amp than a metal amp with a slipknot/ stone sour endorsement. This could be good for crunchy rhythms and guitar solos in standard tuning. Also the clean tone is very quiet due to it being a 1 channel amp, so I would not recommend this amp to anyone who heavily relies on clean tones.

    Comments about Orange Amplifiers Tiny Terror TT15JR Jim Root #4 Signature 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    Ok. I bought this amp about a month ago and have been waiting to do a review of it. I will answer a lot of questions.

    1. This is a dang good build. Very solid construction. You can really tell that Orange does not skimp, even when it comes to these little amps.

    2. No, it is not extremely versatile. I run a tube screamer in the front with no added gain, but with the settings I use and by turning it on and off I can KINDA' simulate 2 channels from just one. But if you need 2 channels, a dedicated clean and crunch I'd go for the dual terror or step it up to a Rockerverb.

    3. It can hold its own in an unmic'd setting. I play with a 5 piece Ambient hard rock band, lots of delays, leads and counter melodies. I have no trouble keeping up. The other guitarist has an early dual rec and this easily holds its own. Volume does not have to go past 11 o'clock. In fact, everyone had to keep telling me turn it down. It can do it.

    4. I've heard a lot of talk about the amp having too much bass. That is not the case from what I have used it for so far. I have the eq slightly adjusted from noon on all 3 bands and it is EXTREMELY midrangy. But I like that. It is probably why it seems to cut through so well going up against bigger amps.

    I give it a 5 out of 5 honestly. This will be one amp that is always in my arsenal. I'm sure I will eventually get the dual terror or Rockerverb, but I am in no way displeased with this amp.

    Hope this helps all those who are wary.

      Comments about Orange Amplifiers Tiny Terror TT15JR Jim Root #4 Signature 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      Every amp maker has a lunchbox amp now, so I tried as many as I could before finally pulling the trigger. I found this one used, but would have paid full price. Gain for days, and unexpected headroom.

      I use this with a 4CM (four cable method, Google it if you're curious!) with both my PODHD500 and GT100. By accident, I flipped to a clean channel on my POD that bypassed the Dark Terror preamp and went right into the power amp - holy heck! It was loud and clear.

      I used to roll my eyes at tube amps loaded with EL84s, but no more. Honestly, I really wanted to like the HK 18 because it had so many bells & whistles and looked really cool. It just didn't sound this good.

      Comments about Orange Amplifiers Tiny Terror TT15JR Jim Root #4 Signature 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      Loud for 15 watts. TUBE WATTS. If you don't know the difference, you don't play enough. This amp is meant and built for the guys who like it heavy. If you want a crisp, clean sounding lunchbox amp, this ain't the one. Roll off the volume on your guitar and it'll clean up nice and sweet and smooth too though. Tubes were built to be cranked up and fried. If it takes you more than 2 minutes to get your sound that you want with the 3 band e.q., you need help with your ears. Killer amp, nice price, quality, and service from Musicians Friend. Jim Root. Slipknot. 1 channel. Metal. Think about it. She's built for death and killing all other music.

        Comments about Orange Amplifiers Tiny Terror TT15JR Jim Root #4 Signature 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        If you're looking for dry, yet heavy tone then the Jim Root head from Orange is it. I've been using modelers for years and never quite getting the exact tone I was looking for. One of my favorite doom metal bands switched to Orange so I checked them out. Man, was I wrong about Orange. They are just what I was looking for in tone. I've been using an SM58 to mic the cab, and this head does the rest. Super easy to setup and use. Don't let the wattage fool you, this thing is loud for a 15-watt amp. Crazy loud. In a bigger venue, yes, you will have to mic your cab, but it's worth it to get that growl, that bite, that dry as a bone tone you've been looking for. FX loop rocks as well. Get this now...

          Comments about Orange Amplifiers Tiny Terror TT15JR Jim Root #4 Signature 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

          I went down to a local guitar store over the weekend and spent a good amount of time with this amp head plugged into a Mesa Boogie 4x12 cabinet loaded with Celestion V30s. It took a very long time to dial in a sound even close to what I like (bright, tight and crisp 5150/6505ish sound) until I placed an Ibanez TS9 infront of it. I used a Musicman John Petrucci signature loaded with dimarzio pickups as well as a Godin redline loaded with EMGs. With both guitars, with/without the TS9, the amp was really noisy so I recommend gating it.

          Moving on to the sound. With the petrucci guitar, i really struggled with the sound. The bottom end was loose, deep and lacked clarity but this provided a base for a nice Nu-metal tone, just not my thing. Rolling back the volume produced a lovely tone. Using the volume knob can really clean up the sound nicely and that adds lots of versatility.

          When I used the EMG-loaded guitar, the difference was noticeable. It tightened and brightened up quite a bit. The sound was crispier and chords rang clear. I was able to dial in a decent metalcore sound with the help of the TS9. EMGs seemed to bring out the best in this amp in terms of the sound in MY head.

          General comments: There are good sounds to be had from this amp if you spend a lot of time tweaking it. It is extremely loud even for a 15 watt head. Having the volume between 1 and 2 is quite loud for bedroom use. It definitely has plenty of volume for gigging but im not sure how the amp holds up at higher volume (above 4) in terms of clarity. You will definitely need a noise gate and a tubescreamer/overdrive pedal is a worthwile investment to make along with this amp.
