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 make it perfect for bedroom, studio, and stage. Using the beefy Terror transformers, the Brent 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 neighbour friendly volume.
From bedroom to headroom
This amp switches between 15, 7, 1 and 0.5 watts. When in Bedroom mode, the circuit has been designed to retain the springiness and feel that we love about valve 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 15W mode for the stage.
Twin channel design
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 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.
Engineered to be played
For the best possible tone and durability, this Terror uses the same proprietary transformers found in all of Orange's iconic Terror Series (excluding the Dual Terror). Like Orange's latest flagship valve amp heads, this 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.
Brent 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 we continue that theme on the settings markers. This amp carries Brent’s uniqueness, stylistically as well as tonally.See all Orange Amplifiers
