A True Channel-Switching Terror
With its own voice and character the Brent Hinds Terror is its own beast. Designed in collaboration with Mastodon’s Brent Hinds, the amp features two channels and a new gain structure that makes it a completely unique Terror.
The single control on the natural channel has been redesigned with more bottom end but retains the finely balanced and highly playable character of the Rocker series. The dirty channel has a different 3-stage gain structure. It’s brighter at lower gain levels and fattens up the more you dial the gain in. The new gain structure also means that the gain comes in more quickly.
Power switching options of 0.5, 1, 7 or 15 Watts make it perfect for bedroom, studio, and stage. Using the beefy Terror transformers, theBrent Hinds Terror is able to take full advantage of the EL84 output section, giving players the ability to create warm valve compression and saturation at neighbor friendly volume.
From Bedroom to Headroom
The Brent Hinds Terror switches between 15, 7, 1 and half a Watt. When in Bedroom mode, the circuit has been designed to retain the springiness and feel of tube amps, a sensation that often gets lost with some attenuator designs. This makes for great tones in the practice room or in the studio, with the option to step up a gear to full power 15 Watt mode for the stage.
The Natural channel features just one control for volume and is voiced with more bottom end as per Brent’s specification. Cleaner settings produce clear, glistening tones whilst cranking the volume brings through the a darker but still very British crunch that loves to be kicked harder with boost and overdrive pedals. The Dirty channel is more familiar with Gain, Master Volume and a three-band EQ. The differently designed three-stage gain structure means that the dirty channel has a brightness at lower volume levels that fattens up and you dial in the gain. (Optional FS-1 footswitch sold separately)
Engineered to be Played
For the best possible tone and durability, the Brent Hinds Terror uses the same proprietary transformers found in all of Orange's iconic Terror Series. Like the company's flagship valve amp heads, the Brent Hinds Terror does away with plastic connector blocks and ribbon cables in favor of hand-soldered flying leads. The chassis-mounted switchgear is secured to the classic Terror series enclosure. As for the amp’s effects loop, Orange opted to keep the signal path all-valve to preserve the amp’s tonal integrity.
Brint Hinds "Tattoo" Styling
The Brent Hinds Terror not only carries Brent’s signature it also bears his facial tattoo. The tribal imagery adorns the front of the chassis and Orange continues that theme on the settings markers. This amp is carries Brent’s uniqueness stylistically as well as tonally.

Comments about Orange Amplifiers Brent Hinds Terror 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:
First thing i want to say is the amp sounds great. It's a very warm amp, and it totally nails the Mastodon tone. The amp has a way of really adapting to the sound of different guitars you plug in. I have an American HSS Strat(stock), Jackson Kelly with EMG Zack Wylde set, Ibanez RG HSH with a Dimebucker in the bridge, and a PRS S2 Standard with the 85/15s. To the amps credit it's the first amp that can make even the Dimebucker sound beefy. Back to my point, the amp really let's the specific guitar qualities shine through.
This is by no means a perfect amp. If you're looking for a modern metal/djent sound you might be able to get there with the right pickups and pedals. I've be jamming mostly Mastodon, Metallica, Tool, Coheed and Cambria, Uncle Acid, Redfang, and some Deftones(White Pony era). I also did a bit of Black Dahlia Murder on the Dimebucker and it sounded decent.
Another important note is pedals. This amp does not play nice with all pedals. I've put through a DigiTech RP250, MXR 10 band EQ, Boss NS2, and an EQD Dispatch Master. All of those pedals except the EQD squelch the harmonics of the amp. You'll need to run top notch pedals to not get in the way of the tone.
In conclusion the amp just sounds nice. It could lack saturation for some, B t once I get in the zone and jam I forget all about it. It's been a new experience with this as it's my first non-american amp. I'm used to the 6L6 sound. Running it through a 212 open back loaded with a Swap Thang and a Texas Heat that have not been broken in.
