Portable power

All valve powered, this twin channel 30 watt portable guitar head delivers plenty of power and is easily transportable. Featuring a unique two stage pre-amp which has a massive tonal range using just three controls per channel.

The Dual Terror has the capability of switching between 30, 15 and 7 watts making it the ultimate versatile portable amplifier both for studio and stage. Get that high output sound without bursting any eardrums in the studio or go full tilt for performances in larger venues. The Fat Channel delivers warmer tones whilst the Tiny Terror Channel has the sonic character of the original Tiny Terror.

at the heart of the Orange Dual Terror Guitar Amplifier Head are the 4 x ECC83 pre-amp valves and 4 x EL84 power amp valves, these work in harmony to deliver highly customisable and powerful tones.

Total control

The front panel of the Orange Dual Terror Guitar Amplifier Head give you easy access to volume, tone and gain for both the Fat channel and the tiny terror channel. The design is 'typical Orange' and will look great in combination with any cab.

Perfect Tones
Posted on 22/06/2012 by Blah07 Purchased this amplifier a couple of months ago and have been surprised every time by the perfect tones that this thing puts out. Some people have been critical of its lack of even a 3 band EQ, but trust me, this thing doesn't need it.
Highly recommended!
A tonal powerhouse with stacks of character
Posted on 15/06/2012 by Vert Two channels and thirty watts of pure Class A valve tastiness all crammed into this stout little fellow make for one hell of an amp. Paired with my sturdy Orange 2x12” cab, this monsters reach is unbelievable, from sparkly, glistening cleans to filthy, meaty overdrive. The Dual Terror is extraordinarily diverse.
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
Posted on 11/06/2012 by Charles Within the last couple of years, lunchbox sized valve amplifiers have become popular amongst guitarists wanting an amp that is easily portable whilst still having that essential valve tone. The Orange Tiny Terror was the first lunch box sized head that was properly recognised as a tone machine in a small box. The Dual Terror is the next level, featuring two channels, the original 'Tiny Terror' channel as well as a more high gain 'Fat Channel'. Also a gig-able 30 watts also makes it a perfect option for someone who often plays at small to medium sized venues when not mic'ed-up. The addition of a switch enabling a variation of 30, 15 and 7 watts means it is also great for studio use allowing you to get a broken-up valve tone at lower volume levels. If you are looking for an amp that allows you maximum versatility, portability and boutique tones from a relatively affordable valve amp head you can't go wrong with the Orange Dual Terror.
