Yes tiny terror. You can switch the wattage on it 7/15w.
Dark terror is a metal amp. You should not even consider it. Unless you really want to play metal

The oranges are an acquired taste (heh, I made a funneh!). For me, personally I found the orange amps I've tried (including the tiny terror) to be fizzy (especially at low volumes, and not a good way, like a soldano) and a little dark. The TT isn't as dark as the bigger heads, but its not a bright amp. Just pointing it out, its a solid amp if you like the sound, but it has its own sound.

A fuzzyness in the high end, almost like static. It hard to explain.

This is an example of good fizz:

Skip to 4:00

I'm not saying the orange sounds anything like that amp, but that amp is a good example of high end sizzle that doesn't sound good with the oranges, IMO.

I'd definitely try to find one to play before you buy.

Man half of the posters in this thread are just beyond full of shit.


I run my 100w tube halfstack at bedroom volumes on just about a daily basis, as does my dad with his 50w 2x12 combo. Both sound great, better than any cheapass 1w "micro" head out there or SS modeler. Much more clarity, better cleans, less compressed, less shitty.

Magical thing called the VOLUME KNOB that controls VOLUME. Believe it or not, it WORKS.



That said, I think a Marshall DSL401 would be the ideal choice for your playing style, if you can find one used over there. A lot of punk bands tend to use Marshall JCM's so that would get you the closest.

JCM2000 DSL401 with two tubes pulled.
A JCM900 will do the deed too but it's a lot of amp. I used to use my JCM900 as my practice amp at home but I also use a JTM45 at home cranked to 10 so maybe that's not relevant. They do sound passable at lower volumes but will also stand you in good stead if you ever want to play with a drummer with it at some stage.
Either amps will do nicely. Get whichever you can find for the best price.
