THE TINY TERROR BUT MORE | UNCOMPLICATED DESIGN | VALVE BUFFERED FX LOOP

THE LUNCHBOX AMP WITH A DARKER SIDE

Picking up where the original Tiny Terror left off, the Dark Terror takes this classic ‘lunchbox amp’ formula and gives it a dark, modern twist. Designed to put high-gain heavy tones first, the 4-stage preamp borrows technology from our flagship amps, packing the best of Orange saturation into a portable, 15 Watt package. Equipped with our all-valve FX Loop and output power switching, the Dark Terror summons not only demonic distortion but also great clean and crunch tones. This deceptively simple amp does so much more than just Metal.

HIGH GAIN IS JUST THE BEGINNING

With four cascading stages, the Dark Terror has enough juice on tap for even the most distortion-hungry modern Metal players. With the same meticulously-engineered gain structure as our flagship Dual Dark and Rockerverb amps, this little devil is designed for maximum clarity and articulation, even with maximum gain. And, just like it’s high-wattage brethren, the Dark Terror’s Gain control can be rolled right back to reveal a more than capable array of clean, crunch and Blues tones.

SHAPE CONTROL

This intuitive feature can also be found on the Dark Terror’s stadium-filling bigger brother, the 100/50W Dual Dark. Packing a whole lot of control into a single dial, the Shape knob adjusts the amp’s midrange voicing by cutting mids whilst simultaneously boosting bass and treble. Turn anticlockwise for a thick, mid-heavy punch or clockwise for a classic ‘scooped’ Metal tone.

VALVE-BUFFERED EFFECTS LOOP

No modern amp would be complete without a great FX Loop. Our highly-transparent, all-valve design makes sure your signal path gets nothing but the best treatment, no matter how complex your pedal setup.

The Dark Terror does its job brilliantly – and that job is to kick hairy arse.
