The Dual Terror is a direct descendant of the iconic Tiny Terror, which quite literally turned the guitar world upside down. Heralded by Guitarist Magazine as ‘the most important guitar product in the last 30 years‘, it was the original lunchbox amp head, and continues to set the standard by which all other low-wattage valve amplifiers must be judged. Though discontinued, the Tiny Terror lives on…
With four EL84s delivering 30 Watts, the Dual Terror head is the most powerful amp in the Terror range, offering two channels of that famous Tiny Terror tone – with double the headroom. Flexible power switching options and a straight-to-the-point control panel make this a great “grab and go” amp that wouldn’t be out of place on any stage.
The Dual Terror’s two-channel preamp offers up a double helping of that groundbreaking Tiny Terror tone. With a no-frills control layout and two stages of in-your-face Classic Rock gain, each channel places the Master Volume and Tone controls after the Phase Inverter. This innovative feature of the original Tiny Terror means that signature overdrive is always available, no matter how loud or quiet.
The Tiny Terror Channel is, as the name suggests, identical to the original. From clean to crunch, this channel is bright, lively and articulate. A wide-ranging Tone control and beautiful interaction with the EL84 power amp make it impossible to dial in a bad sound, giving instant access to every kind of classic Orange overdrive.
The Fat Channel also uses this critically-acclaimed formula, adding warmth and a little extra gain. This different voicing has its own character, great for full-bodied rhythm sounds, mid-forward leads or for balancing two different guitars in a live setting.
With four EL84 valves and our famously heavy-duty proprietary transformers, the Dual Terror’s 30 Watt power amp has enough grunt to fill any stage. Clean tones are delivered with ample headroom before smoothly transitioning into rich, crunchy, British overdrive. The combination of the rear-mounted 4 Valve/2 Valve switch and Full/Half Power modes drops output power down to 15 or 7 Watts, guaranteeing the feel of this highly responsive amp is never lost, even when low volume is a necessity.
