- Perfect Tones
- A tonal powerhouse with stacks of character
I've owned a few lower output amps for rehearsing and recording, and I must say for its size and class, the versatility of this dainty brute is truly unparalleled. Noodling in the bedroom at 7 watts emanates perfect valve driven tones at a level that hasn't yet resulted in an ASBO. The 7/15 watt switch also makes it brilliant for recording. I've made a couple of records using the DT head, and have found it necessary only to make minor EQ adjustments in the mixing process - its natural sound is exceptionally well balanced.
Rehearsals with the Dual Terror are an absolute joy; weighing in at just 10 kilos, transporting this bad boy whether walking, cycling or on the bus is a doddle. Switched up to 30 watts it's surprisingly loud and our drummer occasionally struggles to keep up!
The only downside to this otherwise flawless amp (and why I've not given it 5/5) is that when you really turn up the clean channel you lose a fair bit of sparkle, which isn't great if, like me, you want stacks of clean headroom. That said, the bluesy breakup on the clean channel will be exactly what many guitarists are looking for.
I play (a Fender Jaguar) in a shoegaze post-rock type band, and for this kind of music we need amps that are dynamic, responsive and play well with pedals. My Dual Terror can handle a ridiculous number of pedals running out front without choking my tone, while effortlessly shining through epic, heavy overdriven moments.
I've used my Dual Terror as my Rockerverb 50 backup for three tours now, and although Orange stuff is unlikely to ever require a backup, I feel a lot better for having this guy in the van - it has saved the day on a few occasions when bandmates gear has failed. Oh, and in three years of near constant use I've never had a valve failure.
Now I just need to get my hands on a micro-terror for noodling on the road...
- Versatile and portable whilst still giving you the boutique valve tone
