If you’re looking in the market for a separate head and speaker set-up for your guitar and have come to appreciate the Orange amp sound. You may even have heard of the Orange Amps Tiny Terror. But what does it sound like and how does it compare with other models?
In your local music shop, whether online or on the high street, you’ll see that there are two versions: one made in China, the other manufactured in the UK. Orange closely supervises the design of both, but the two are pitched at slightly different markets, depending on price. You will be most interested in how this affects the sound. Well, reviewers who have tested both models widely agree that the only difference is in terms of quality. The China-made Regular Terror creates impressive sounds, similar to those heard from the likes of guitar heroes Jimmy Page and Angus Young. The Hard Wired Terror, produced in the UK, does the same, only a little bit better. Neither of these Orange amplifiers fall down in regards to their good control over sound, great dynamics and a pretty fair volume for a relatively small amp. But the Hard Wired amp will offer just a bit extra. Bear in mind that the kind of electric guitar you play will have a big effect on the sound made – the Stratocaster and the Gibson Les Paul will both sound substantially different, with only tone, volume and gain to alter it.
