Lots of News From Orange Amps
The Micro Terror Amp
Fans of the stylishly, citrus guitar amp builders Orange are adding a new installment to their Tiny Terror line. Soon to be released is the Micro Terror amp. The Micro Terror has taken the first place podium in the Tiny Terror line for the smallest amp yet both in dimensions and weight. However the exact dimensions and weight have not been divulged anywhere, so that’s all the more specific I can get, though it’s a fair presumption you won’t throw your back out lifting it.
Powered by a 15 volt DC power supply the Micro Terror is armed with a 12AX7 pre-amp tube with 20 watts RMS solid state output. The Micro Terror can also be plugged into any cabinet provided it has 4 Ohm minimum handling. Beyond that everything is fair game. And if you’re looking to play along with a backing track there is an auxiliary input for your MP3 player or CD player (that probably includes an iPod so you can plug your Apple into your Orange, nyuk, nyuk, nyuk).
The Micro Terror is cased in a high tensile steel case for maximum durability and resistance to the most unruly of journeys abroad. The style of the amp itself is to capitalize on those old vintage British crunchy, overdriven tones.
The PPC108 Cabinet
Because we all need something to plug our amplifiers into Orange has thought in advance and developed the PPC108 cabinet. Within this small, vibrant box resides a modest 8-inch speaker designed to deliver all the punch your tone could yearn for.
Orange Professional Cables
The cables boast strong signal transmission, minimal noise interference, and heat shrink over the Neutrilk gold plated connectors. The cables come in black or orange.
Orange at NAMM
Orange Amps will be displaying the Micro Terror and the PPC108 along with the rest of their catalog at the upcoming NAMM. To get a good look and listen to their selection of amps simply just seek out booth 4890 in Hall C.
The Big Book of Orange was just released in 2011 and documents the forty years of Orange amps from when they started through all the developments that put them on the map, and the man at the helm Cliff Cooper will be available and willingly signing your very own copy of The Big Book of Orange.
