Orange Micro Terror

I stopped by the local GC yesterday -a bass player I work with is a manager there - and he sold me a floor model Orange Micro Terror that they had for a few weeks. They sold all the boxed ones, which is fine with me, I got a deal.

I then took it to a recording session I did yesterday where I did:
Heavily Distorted Steel Guitar ('63 Fender Champ w/ Red Lace Sensor)
Distorted Metal Palm Mute Rythym Track (Reverend Jetstream w/ Railhammer Chisels)
Mild Overdrive Tele Tracks, bluesy-bendy stuff (Reverend Eastider S)

I tried the new Orange for the steel,thinking I'd get a cool compressed thing out of it, which I did, and ended up using it on everything. I went directly into it with a 10 foot cable, and it was plugged into the studio's 4x12 Carvin cab loaded with Vintage 30's. The producer and the engineer loved it, so I didn't switch out anything but guitars..

So...I like it. Cool little toy for the money, no question, and apparently it has some real-world application. It's louder than hell.

I've had a tiny terror for years, the first version, and I find that it does one thing (heavy grind) very well - what it's designed for. However, I always thought the tone control missed the mark by only going from bright to brighter - I keep mine rolled almost all the way off.

The Micro's 20 watt is louder, for sure. It's not as compressed as the Tiny, but more versitile for sure. The tone control does between 0 and 5 what the Tiny does between 0 and .5 and there is a cleaner sound to be had...

Have any of you screwed around with one?

Re: Orange Micro Terror

Very encouraging review. On first sight these things look too small to be taken seriously as anything but a bedroom toy. I'm going to rock on down to my local dealer and try me one out!!!!
