FROM BEDROOM TO HEADROOM | TWIN CHANNEL | APPROVED BY BRENT HINDS

A TRUE CHANNEL SWITCHING TERROR

With an individual 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 15, 7, 1 and 0.5 Watts 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.

Tiny Terror 10th Anniversary Editon

Orange Custom Shop

Designer Ade Emsley on the 10th Anniversary Edition…


I like to keep things simple. The Tiny Terror is probably the amp I’m most proud of. The idea was to make a small amp that didn’t sound like a small amp – all valve, tight, punchy, springy – that didn’t have that ‘5 Watt single-ended amp sound’, which definitely sounds like a small amp! The Tiny Terror meant you could take a proper amp in a gigbag on the train or the bus to the show, borrow a 4×12″ cab from another band on the bill and blow everyone away.

I love output valve distortion and, for me, EL84s have the most musical saturation. 15 Watts cranked is the perfect volume to achieve it. The circuit I came up with for the Tiny Terror was designed with that in mind. It’s a unique channel with only three controls – gain, volume and tone – but it gives you everything from clean to pretty ridiculous. The first gang of the gain pot increases the gain of the first stage and the second gang of the pot increases the impedance of the second stage. This results in the signal pushing into the output valves evenly all the way up. It’s a real musician’s amplifier, so when you play softly you get glistening cleans, and when you dig in it crunches up into rich overdrive – all with the touch of your hands.

The 10th Anniversary model is a hand wired version of the standard Terror. The more traditional components add a certain character to the sound. Carbon comp. resistors pass a signal in a certain way and, with a proper hard-wired amp, you’re effectively soldering solid core legs of components together, so the top end is even sweeter and more defined. The construction of this 10th Anniversary edition is actually slightly different from my hard-wired prototypes. The first Tiny Terror I made was on a tag board, whereas the 10th Anniversary model is totally true point-to-point on a strip. It’s much more fiddly and involved this way but you end up with something that looks as smart as it sounds.


The cabinet…


There’s something magical that happens when you smash two 10” alnico speakers with two EL84s and a good output transformer. It just rings with a bell-like quality. It’s the last piece of the puzzle and it’s basically the sound I heard growing up with the likes of AC/DC. That was the sound that got me interested in the first place! In a 2×10” cabinet, the two speakers react together in a certain way, which really complements the Tiny Terror. We’ve never made a 2×10 guitar cabinet before, but it’s my favourite configuration.

I’ve worked with Celestion for nearly 15 years, and I had a lot of input into development of the G10 Gold speakers. Before that, there hadn’t really been a proper British 10” speaker since the ‘60s. Horseshoe magnets were about, but they never sounded as good as the classic alnico ring magnet. It’s the most musical sounding magnet with certain properties that no other material has. The Gold was designed from the ground up. We wanted more power handling than the early 10” speakers and every detail was carefully examined. Celestion even had to have the basket re-tooled as the initial one was lacking in articulation in the finished sound. It’s the best 10” alnico speaker in production today.

Key Features

Point-to-point Hardwired Head

Each Tiny Terror 10th Anniversary Edition head is hand crafted in the Orange Custom Shop using the finest components and heavy gauge copper wire. These elements combine to produce sheer tonal perfection – blissful overtones and touch-sensitive breakup by the bucket load. Whilst the regular production version has become a tonal icon, this handwired edition takes the Tiny Terror to another dimension, delivering an even wider frequency response with impeccable clarity and separation. The striking polished steel chassis features our ‘Pic’s Only’ styling, dating back to some of our earliest amps in 1972.

Bespoke Open-back 2×10 Cabinet

Designer Adrian Emsley’s own personal recommendation for the Tiny Terror, this bespoke speaker cabinet has never featured in our line-up before. The cabinet is only available together with its matching Tiny Terror head and will not be sold separately. Its 18mm birch plywood shell houses a a pair of Celestion G10 Gold drivers – the finest alnico speakers available. These speakers were co-developed by Emsley himself.

Limited Edition

Only 110 of these half-stacks will be made to commemorate a decade of the Tiny Terror. The British racing green theme is a celebration of our British heritage and has not been offered before. Each purchase will come complete with a certificate of authenticity, signed by Orange founder and CEO Cliff Cooper.

600 WATTS | EMINENCE NEODYMIUM SPEAKERS | ISOBARIC DESIGN

HIGH POWER, ISOBARIC DESIGN

Building on the success of our SmartPower series, the new OBC212 is our best isobaric bass cabinet yet. This clever design positions one speaker behind the other, creating an airtight, phase coherent chamber for outstanding projection in a more compact enclosure than a traditional 2×12. Featuring a pair of 12” neodymium Eminence speakers, 600 Watts of power handling and parallel speakon jacks the OBC212 is a perfect mate for a wealth of bass amplifier heads.

ISOBARIC DESIGN

OBC212 positions two front-facing speakers, one behind the other. The space between the front speaker’s magnet and the rear speaker’s cone is airtight, ensuring that both speakers vibrate in conjunction with one another, thus keeping them in phase. Combined with a slot port for extra low end the OBC212 delivers a seriously punchy sound with a much smaller footprint than a conventional 2×12″.

THE AMP OF CHOICE FOR ROCK AND METAL GUITARISTS

KEY FEATURES:

Two Master Volume Channels with Four Stages of High Gain

From sparkling cleans to overdrive to aggressive distortion. Both channels deliver the versatility demanded by the best guitarists

Footswitchable Global Attenuator

Output stage saturation at ‘conversation volumes’. The Attenuator circuit is located after the master volume controls and determines when and how the amp distorts after the preamp stage. This means the overall volume level can be reduced, whilst keeping control over the amp’s output clipping characteristics. Unlike a loadbox, our design ensures the all-important relationship between the output transformer and the speaker remains intact, so even at very low volumes the amp remains springy and responsive. Turning the Attenuator control clockwise reduces the overall output level (i.e. increases the attenuation), which can be remotely defeated via a footswitch for a volume boost on either channel for lead lines.

Switchable Output Power

Switching the amp’s output power allows for more control over the headroom and breakup from the output valves. Reduce the output for greater output valve clipping and saturation at lower volume levels. The Dual Dark 50 can be switched between 50 and 25 Watts

Engineered to be played

At Orange, we expect our amps to work for a living. For the best possible tone and durability, the Dual Dark 50 uses 8 section output transformers. The chassis-mounted switchgear is secured to a welded steel enclosure and housed in a sturdy 18mm plywood cabinet.

Valve Buffered FX Loop

For the purist who loves their pedals, our highly transparent effects loop is buffered by a single 12AT7/Ecc81, ensuring an all-valve signal path from input to output.  You won’t find any op-amps in the Dual Dark 50.

“I wanted to design a series of amps that could go as clean or as dirty as you want on both channels. Don’t be fooled by the dark appearance, these are versatile bits of kit.”

Made in the UK, it’s heavy and solidly put together with superbly applied tolex and piping, metal corner covers and chromed facia protectors. All the cooling vents are metal, and everything is screwed down so tightly it can only inspire confidence.

Taking it’s place among the elite super-high-gain heads, Orange’s all tube Dual Dark 50 is equally proficient at producing modern, ear melting gain and yesteryear’s British Chime.

I don’t believe that the ‘perfect’ amp exists but the Dual Dark comes frighteningly close. Amazing Stuff!

….the Dual Dark 50 is a pro-level amp for players who are serious about getting heavy, and nobody does heavy quite like Orange

“It cleans up really nicely, you can get some really nice jangly tones…it’s a pretty friggin great amp!”

The Orange Dual Dark series is freaking awesome!

EVEN DARKER

100 Watts of 100% Valve Darkness

Our highest gain amplifiers to date and our very first amps to offer four stages of gain on two channels, the Dual Dark heads are both aggressive and flexible at the same time. With gain and master volume controls on both A and B, either channel can serve up clean, overdrive or insane levels of distortion, making these amps incredibly pliable despite their obvious Metal leanings.

Channel A is a completely new design with a voicing that reveals a fat and powerful EQ with strong open mids and a tight response. Channel B takes its roots from our much loved Dark Terror, with a lightning fast attack perfect for percussive down-tuned riffing. The intuitive Shape control, first appearing on our acclaimed Thunderverb series, affects the midrange response whilst interacting with the bass and treble. Dial in a range of tones using just one control, from a full-on scoop, to a rich lead sound with pronounced mids and rounded highs.

Compared to its 50W brother, the Dual Dark 100’s bigger output section allows for even greater control over the huge level of preamp gain on offer. The bottom end punch and midrange clout is truly staggering, and if you like your distortion happening at the front end, you’ll love the Dual Dark 100! For a different flavour, the output can be tamed from 100W down to 70W, 50W or 30W for earlier output valve clipping and saturation at reduced volume levels.

Meanwhile, our footswitchable attenuator circuit allows for control over when and how the amp distorts after the preamp stage. Use the amp’s master volume controls to push the output stage into submission, then reduce the volume level with the attenuator, right the way down to ‘conversation’ levels. This feature can also be defeated remotely for a volume boost in a live setting. Unlike a loadbox, our design ensures the all-important relationship between the output transformer and the speaker remains intact, so even at very low volumes the amp remains springy and responsive. Finally, the amp is equipped with a highly transparent, low impedance valve buffered effects loop to take full advantage of the masses of gain available when using time-based effects.

What they say…

100 Watts of British Beef……It’s the ultimate amp. It’s versatile, it’s pure valve tone, and it’s gutsy enough to put a hole in a brick wall. It’s awesome.

Orange has really hit the tone jackpot here with the OR100H.

Orange’s considerable heritage and contemporary ingenuity distilled into a world beating pro valve head.

In terms of true overdrive and distortion, channel two’s range of flavors includes everything from Orange’s classic, gutsy grind and aggressive overtones to modern, super-heavy square waves of ball-kicking distortion. But the OR100H’s real magic lies in its connection to the player. It responds appropriately to every touch, always understands your intentions and continually opens up to reveal new and exciting sides of its personality. With two independent channels, multiple power options and a broad palette of midrange hues, the OR100H is the most versatile amp in Orange’s outstanding OR Series.
