The Orange Brent Hinds Terror Guitar Amplifier Head is the outstanding results of a collaboration between Orange and the Mastodon axeman. Incorporating the unique two channel setup of other models in the series, this model features a new gain structure that makes it a different kind of Terror.
Mighty Mastodon tones
Brent Hinds is no stranger to cultivating crushing grooves, having written some epic riffs during his tenure in Mastodon, covering a wide selection of musical styles with an emphasis on dynamics. The Terror is the perfect partner to his versatile playing style, offering the best of both worlds from glassy cleans to searing high-gain power.
Access all areas
The Brent Hinds Terror has a switchable power that ranges from 0.5, 1, 7, or 15-watts, making it perfect for any situation from practising at home to hitting the festival stage. Hinds is no stranger to the road, with a touring schedule that would make the most seasoned pro blush. With that in mind, reliability and consistency is the key, and whether he is warming up on the bus, or wowing adoring crowds, the Terror has the energy to impress - whatever the output level. You can rest assured that the same valve-driven power will be delivered with intensity.
Unique "Twin-Channel" design
The Brent Hinds Terror is equipped with a unique twin channel design with both Natural and Dirty options. Each channel is designed to respond acutely to the dynamics of your performances, so that anything for fingerpicking, flatpicking, hybrid-picking, two-hand tapping (anything and everything) is translated transparently.
The Natural channel is equipped with a single volume control, and is voiced for complete transparency. Whether you're playing a single-coil or humbucker equipped guitar, the rich, vibrant character of your guitar will ring true. From sweet cleans to a gentle infusion of crunch, the natural channel is perfect for the tonal purists.
The Dirty channel is bestowed with Gain, Master Volume, and a three-band EQ section. You can either keep it restrained for a slightly hotter rhythm channel, or ramp it up for some truly crushing high-gain assaults. The unique gain structure means that the gain's attack is much quicker to respond, giving it a far more aggressive edge.
By integrating an optional Orange FS-1 footswitch, you can switch between channels seamlessly on stage for hands-free control.
Tour-ready build quality
The Orange Brent Hinds Guitar Amplifier Head is built to cope with the demands that come with a lengthy tour schedule. The same proprietary transformers are used as in all Terror Series models. There are hand-soldered flying leads instead of plastic connector blocks, whilst chassis-mounted switchgear is secured to the enclosure. From top to bottom, inside and out, this is an amplifier that stays true to its family name, and is a solid as a rock.
Unique Hinds' design
The Brent Hinds' Terror doesn't just deliver his signature tone in compact form, but artwork has been added to the chassis to incorporate his unique tribal tattoo imagery. Along the rear panel the Mastodon logo stands proudly on display.
