With an all valve front end, the Terror Bass is a 500W hybrid bass amp with a valve preamp and solid-state power amp, making it closer to the sound of our flagship AD200 than ever before, with a front panel that remains the same layout to the original Terror Bass but with an added clean switch, giving more headroom and smoother, clean sounds.

From clean pop sounds through to gritty rock tones the Terror Bass can do it all. A pad switch on the front for active basses takes 6dB off the input sensitivity. The effects loop is valve on the send and solid-state on the return. The Terror bass is a Class D amp with 500 watts of power into 4 Ohms and 250 Watts into 8 Ohms, the limiter switch on the back prevents the output stage from being pushed too hard into 4 ohms.

We met bass wizard Adrian Bartol in Madrid and captured the tones you hear in this video, using his Moollon bass and new Terror Bass and OBC112 miking the room, to bring you all the expressiveness and versatility of this ultra-portable professional rig, from Motown_esque groove to pop, from punk to contemporary rock, the Terror Bass covers every base and the OBC112 can follow you from the studio to the gig.

YOU KEPT ASKING FOR IT…

The all-new, re-designed Terror Bass has arrived and it sounds better than ever.

Hello everybody, I’m Simone Vignola bassist and songwriter from Italy. Today, I’m here with my best travelling partner – This Orange Amplifier that I use both in live and studio sessions. You just listened to “Naufrago” It is my last album’s title track.

I’m playing these songs live just with bass and vocals as an evolution of my solo project which gives me the opportunity to play by myself with bass and vocals along with a complete background sound, the sound I can build thanks to this amplifier. Actually, the head I’m using is the new Terror Bass, a very new model which kind of looks like the Terror Bass 1000s little sister that I used during the last period.

A simple amplifier is what I need, I can control bass, mids and high in an easy and vintage way simply with a little knob. Just volume and gain and I can reach without any other additional gear a sound that seems already compressed and controllable even when I play with my loop station.

Obviously, my followers know that my style is funky oriented and Orange is often considered a rock amplifier but now we’ll try to change this point of view like transforming a cap into a hat and so the transformation of a rock amplifier into a funky one. I’m very very happy to talk about this.

Moreover here we have the isobaric 2×12 cabinet. There are two 12″ front facing speakers in an isobaric way. An excellent product that gives us a full low range covering but also a nice presence for slapping and for those techniques I like to use, so it gives me a great sound support. And today, this amplifier supports the Bellavista’s horse too. It was part of this video.

Goodbye everybody with another song called “Love Song.” A kiss.
