Orange Dark Terror (revisited....)

Hey all,

I used to have an Orange Dark Terror but I kind of hated that amp. It always sounded way too fizzy and scooped for me so I got rid of it eventually. Then I was watching some high quality demos of the Dark Terror a while ago on YouTube and I realised that the amp sounded great in their videos... That made me wonder, was my old one broken???! So, I bought another one and WOW, this one sounds soooo good haha! I'm glad because I'm just a big Orange fan so now I have basically all the Orange lunchbox amps.

I made a little demo with my ESP LTD Phoenix Black metal. That guitar sounds just great with this amp. Check it out and let me know what you think of the Dark Terror? Do you love it or hate it perhaps? What settings do you like to use on yours?

I have the Jim Root Terror and the thing rips. I hear you on the fizziness but I just turn the gain down a little and it clears up nicely. I also use Dimarzio Tone Zone and Evo combos in a Schecter and Charvel So Cal

Great video and sound. I love the simplicity of these Orange lunchbox amps myself. Two o'clock on the gain seems to be close to the sweet spot on my Jim Root Terror too. Fishman sounds great too. I've always had an itch fir one of those LTD black metal guitars. 🤘🏼
