    Comments about Orange Amplifiers Dual Terror DT30H 30W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    I just gigged with this amp in a band with a 2nd guitar player and it cut through...on the 15 watt setting! It's lightweight, versatile, has amazing tone, amazing sustain and IMO a 1x12 is plenty. A 1x12 and this head are so easy to transport it's ridiculous. Takes pedals well....love it!

      Comments about Orange Amplifiers Dual Terror DT30H 30W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      I walked in to [@] to buy the new Mesa Boogie Mini Rectifier and, upon the advice of the saleseman, I tried the Orange Dual Terror side by side on the same cab. Thank God I did because this think is awesome. Had much more of a presence than the Mini Rec. Thegain on the Fat channel was incredible. Yes it does not have al the bells and wistles that the Boogie has, but to me, the sound was just better tonally (more organic). I also tried it with a Radial Tonebone Hot British distortion and an Mxr Graphic EQ runing into the front of the amp, and it was just awesome. Do yourself a favor and take the same approach. You will find that it really is the king of this class. WOW!! Buy it!!!!

        Comments about Orange Amplifiers Dual Terror DT30H 30W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        I wanted to wait a few weeks (3) and use this amp before I wrote this. I have been playing in bands for over 45 yrs. As someone said, "I don't know how I lived this long without this amp". I play this head with 2, 1x12 closed back Orange Cabs. The sound is fantastic at high volume, or at low volume. It goes from crystal clarity, to liquid distortion, with no loss of quality sound. I play a Fender Telecaster and a Les Paul Standard. They have never sounded better, and neither have I. Finally found that sound that I have been searching for. If your thinking about getting this amp, do it! It has reignited may passion for playing. You can thank me later !!!!

        Dual Terror!!!

        By Spartacusian

        from Poplar, Wisconsin

        See all my reviews

        Comments about Orange Amplifiers Dual Terror DT30H 30W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        I purchased this amp a while ago, and I wanted to wait a while before I wrote a review (reviews seem pointless when the owner just got it last night.) This is an amazing amp- for anyone worried about it being loud enough- don?t worry. On 7 watt mode, it has more than enough power to keep up with a drummer- with 30 watts you get a lot more headroom for clean tones. What I love about this amp is that all the sounds you can get with it are usable. The small size is great- and the carrying bag is very convenient. When everything is turned all the way up, it sounds like a cross between Hendrix and early Zeppelin (live, of course). I have this running through one of Orange?s 2x12 cab (the open back). If you are a great player, you will dominate with this amp. If you aren?t, don?t get this amp because you won?t sound good. I only have one beefs with this amp. The first one is the lack of an fx loop. This amp sounds amazing with nothing in between it and the guitar except for a cable- but having the option to use reverb or delay would make this amp another notch up. The lack of the 3 band eq replaced with one tone knob isn?t an issue- when you crank it all the way up (as it should be) you can control all the needed tones and timbres with your guitar. If you wanted an fx loop and a 3 band eq, get the TH30H . It has all that. Overall, definitely a pro sounding amp.

        I honestly don't know how I ever lived this long without this Orange Dual Terror! I run it into a Celestion Vintage 30 loaded 4-12 closed back speaker. I love the sound. I own 10 guitars & they all sound great. My Les Paul Standard sounds so good,Icouldn't put it down. My Tele sounds pretty amazing also. I Love this amp.

        Dual Terror

        By Cityboy78

        from Chicago

        Comments about Orange Amplifiers Dual Terror DT30H 30W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        I agree with 'bob'. The amp reveals the clarity on how you play! The clean is very natural, and if you have an ear, you know you have to dial it in. The distortion; enough gain for metal (Children of Bodom, Pantera, ect.) I prefer the tone knob at about 9 o'clock. I would've rated the features better if there was a three band EQ, reverb and effects loop. Quality? It's a Rolls-Royce! I prefer saving a little more for this rather than Tiny Terror. It's a little more bang for your buck.

        Orange Dual Terror amp head

        By Agnes Rock

        from Las Vegas , Nevada

        Comments about Orange Amplifiers Dual Terror DT30H 30W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        As stated prior, the versatility of clean tone and distorted tone in the same amp package is a win.
        Plenty of power for most gigs, and the only down side for me is no internal reverb.
        However, the tone of this rig rocks right on, and I find it to be a great amp head for local club work, which is where I work most of my gigs.

        If you need to do a LARGE hall, I reccommend miking the unit as well as outdoor concerts. For most standard size rooms, the unit will compensate well, and hold up the guitar to a hot mix.
        This unit sound great, It has an el34 output section and preamp tubes that really warm up the tone.
        It has the clean sound, as well as the cranked overdrive sound associated with Marshall, and Fender. With its light weight, ease of use, and reliability I give a ten out of ten.
        The only down side is the amp has NO reverb, so you need to add an extenal reverb to get that effect. I have one, and it really added to the depth of the amp.

        I really reccomend this amp for folks who don't want the hassle of a heavy cabinet head, and like the portability. Win win for the consumer.

        Agnes Rock
        Build quality excellent. Sturdy metal, with a chrome handle. TUFF
        Value wise, this amp is a pretty good match for the price. Its not the cheapest rig on the block, but the quality and tone, and adaptability is what you get. Its a fair price for a good piece of gear.

          This amp is amazing. I just got a week ago so i can't speak to longevity but it sounds wonderful. The cleans sparkle and dirty stuff sounds like British magic. I just played a small gig with this thing and it was easy to carry and screamed over the drummer even on the 15 watt setting. Plus the 7 watt setting can keep it quiet enough to be played in my apartment. Bottom line this is a fantastic sounding amp.

            Comments about Orange Amplifiers Dual Terror DT30H 30W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

            I have had this amp for several months now, I run it through a 1X12 Ampeg cab loaded with a V30. The amp is quite versatile. theres enough growl while still maintaining headroom. The amp cleans up very well. The different wattage settings and tube settings are great. Keeps up well on stage in the studio and in rehearsal. Very portable as stated many times. very quick to find the tones you want. alot of people have issues with the lack of an effects loop but to be honest ive never been bothered and i think its great that there is less between you and your tone. one interesting thing i noticed is how low the noise floor is on this amp even at loud volume and higher gain settings. this amp gives lots of flexibility and variety to your sound.

            Just bought this head and used it to plya an outside gig in a tent. I have played Fender and Marshall amps my whole life (playing 40+ years) and this Dual Terror definately brought a huge smile on my face. I will keep this one forever and recommend it for sure. It really kicks in the 30 watt stage! Kept up with my other guitar players amp (Mesa) PLEASE try one out and you should love it like I am!!

            Tones from sweet and clean to full out rock

            from Montreal, QC

            Comments about Orange Amplifiers Dual Terror DT30H 30W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

            I am a part time pro guitar player in my 50's and when it comes to amps I have always been partial to the "F" word. But when I decided to seek out an amp that could give me some modern overdrive sounds as well as crystal clean sounds I discovered Orange. I purchased the Dual Terror with a 112 and a 212 cab and I could not be happier. This amp does it all and it's versatility is unrivaled. I can use it with the 112 or the 212 or both. I can use it at 7, 15 or 30 watts depending on the size of my gig. I gig with 2 main guitars; a Fender Strat and a Gibson ES335. I am completely covered and can go from Rock & Roll to Rock to Country and although it is not in our playlist I can get some serious metal tones, and my rig doesn't kill my 55 year old back. A truly wonderful amplifier.

            So much tone in such a small head!!

            By Mooney-_2XHa

            from West Point, MS

            Comments about Orange Amplifiers Dual Terror DT30H 30W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

            I needed an amp that I could rock in the bedroom with the same sound I had on stage. Hard to do when you've got a 50W head you can't turn past 1 without pissing the neighbors off! But with the dual terror you have the option of running 2 or 4 EL84s at full or half power. This allows you to run your amp at 7, 15, or 30 watts. Like the extra 15 watts, adding a 2nd channel was another welcome upgrade to the Tiny Terror. The Fat Channel is like the original Tiny Terror on steroids. It has very thick tone with tons of available gain and wonderful sustain. I use it as dirty channel, because it sounds much better than the Tiny Terror with the gain cranked. But don't think that the Tiny Terror channel is useless. The Tiny Terror has an unexpectedly crisp clean tone that I'm personally in love with! I've heard a lot of people complain about the lack of clean headroom, but I couldn't disagree more. Yet, it can be tough to dial in with only one tone knob. I like the gain at 12 o'clock just before the point of breakup and the tone at 2 o'clock on the neck pickup of my Melody Maker. It give's it a nice bell-like warm sound. If you are thinking about getting a Tiny Terror, I would definitely recommend saving up to buy it's big brother

            Comments about Orange Amplifiers Dual Terror DT30H 30W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

            it's been two years since i bought this amp.. Great tone, great dynamic, great overdriven sound, and great on every tiny thing that you can possibly imagine from a tube-driven amp.. it doesn't has 3-band EQ, but you can still have a satisfying sound from the tone knob.. turn the tone knob with your eyes closed, and you cannot get any harsh from it, similar good ol' thing on Tube Screamer stompbox's knob.
            portable and lightweight foe any gigs? no doubt..
            put 2 of your 1/4" jacks on both 8 ohm outputs on the back of the head, and connect those onto cabinet's inputs (i'm using Orange PPC 112), and you'll get a bit wider sound..
            the only lack of Dual Terror is "no FX Loop". I'm using Carbon Copy Delay, and i have to set the Carbon Copy's output extremely low to play staccato (about 9 o'clock on clean, and 8.30 on overdrive), since every stompbox (including analog delay) hit the preamp section, the signal was massively amplified.. above that, clarity's vanished.. but no problem if you're using that much delay for some U2's styles..
            oops, one more thing.. there's no difference beetwen the 2 channels (tiny terror & fat).. it's exactly the same tone.. but then, you still can use it properly as 2 channel amp..
            still nice for both clean & overdrive, on any given 412 cab available on the stage..
            no doubt for the tones, clarity, overdriven sound, and dynamic.. and it's surely portable amps for gigging, recording, or anywhere the music takes you (written on the box)

            I love the sound of this amp. It's very simple to use. I had an effects loop put into mine, but it only effects the fat channel. It has very good clean and distortion tones. I wish it had a solo boost, then it would be perfect.

            I've had this amp for almost a year now, as soon as I heard it was being made I knew I had to have it. The true beauty of this amp comes out when you use an overdrive and/or EQ with it. The simplicity makes you find your perfect tone. The attenuator is a great addition as well. You can have settings for bedroom, practice, and gigging all without having to touch your volume controls. And yes you can play metal with it. I have achieved tones like Opeth and Behemoth out of this think, but admittedly, with help from EQs and an overdrive. Just crank this amp and jam!

            Comments about Orange Amplifiers Dual Terror DT30H 30W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

            I've been using this amp now for a couple of months now. This amp gets the sound I've been hearing in my head but couldn't quite coax out of other amps including the two biggest names in guitar amps. The clean tones aren't quite as clean as some other amps but they sound warm and natural, nobody seemed to notice. Some people have claimed that there isn't enough clean headroom, I disagree. It gets plenty loud enough for my needs (small to medium sized clubs, occasional large venues or outdoor shows).Crank up the gain and the distortion sounds really great, lots of sustain and overtones but the notes can be distinguished. In fact, this amp will reveal sloppy playing because even at high gain settings the notes are somehow clear (but not clean). I used this recently at a major outdoor music festival, MY tone was the one everybody was talking about (in a good way). One tone control! I tried this amp through various cabinets. It sounds great through a Marshall 412 box, a Park 412 or a Hiwatt 212. Right now I'm playing it through two Epiphone Jr. extension cabs, it sounds KILLER!!! I play a Gibson Firebird, a Les Paul, a Flying V and a Fender Stratocaster. This amp brings all kinds of harmonic overtones out of the "V" and the Strat that my other amps can't. The Firebird and Les Paul also come to life with this amp. The only thing I miss is an FX loop because of the way reverb and delay respond in a loop as opposed to being in front of the amp (and of course, your distortion). Occasionally (when I need just a little more GRRR) I will use a Tube Screamer but mostly I prefer just the amp distortion. You won't find a better amp in this price range!

            Comments about Orange Amplifiers Dual Terror DT30H 30W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

            I originally wanted a Tiny Terror, then they came out w/ the Dual Terror. I purchased the DT due to 30 watts and two switchable dirt channels. My reasoning being that I could play rhythm on one channel and set the volume slightly louder on the second for a volume increase during solos (a much requested feature that Orange refuses to add, c'mon guys, listen to the consumer!). Only problem is, the 'Fat' channel sound so much better than the Tiny Terror channel (which sounds great) that I never want to switch. Overall, a very cool, useful little amp. Don't let the lack of reverb, fx loop, clean channel, controls cause you to underestimate this amp. It has everything you need to rock!
