I borrowed one for a small gig once and it was fine - both myself and the guitarist in the other band that it actually belonged to were easily audible over the drummers. My only gripe was that it didn't have much clean headroom but that doesn't sound like it'll be a problem for you!

Enjoy occasionally controversial ramblings related to guitars? I have a blog which meets these criteria.

I'd say generally "no." Depends on how small the gig is and how aggressive the drummer is. Also depends on staging and crowd density. We walked in on a guy trying to use one and all we heard was the bass and the drummer.

You can always mic it.

If your drummer hits somewhat hard I would not advise the MT for giging unless you can mic it.

If you mic it, it can be as loud as the PA so of course. And if you use a 4x12 it might be loud enough on its own; my friend's 1 watt Blackstar amp through a 4x12 kept up with drums without a problem.

20w is loud. I imagine it would do most gigging venues that you have access too with a 2x12 at the very least. A guy I know did that, and they were stupid loud for the room size.

It's solid-state. It's not like the Tiny Terror which has a tube power section. 20W SS isn't that loud in a band situation. I personally wouldn't go with it since it's better to have more and not need it than to need more and not have it. If you want Orange tone in a small and affordable package, I would get an Electro-Harmonix 44 Magnum and a Tech 21 Oxford. It's twice the price but you get twice the power and a more authentic and flexible Orange tone. At $310, it's still a great bargain.

I do not see how the MT is remotely gigable unmic'd unless you play in a very quiet band.

It is a practice amp and nothing more

I dunno. I have emailed the guy in question. I thought the had two 20w guitarists and a drummer and were way to loud for a 200x30 room full of people. People complained they were too loud and left.

Could they have modded the cab or put really loud speakers in?

I've played one of these through a 4X12 before. For practice application, and I'd even say small gigs, they could be fine without being mic'd. Mic'd and ran through a PA, they would obviously be fine for gigging.

I'm not sure what kind of gigs everyone here plays, but at nearly all of my gigs the sound guys mic's everything up. Even in smaller clubs. I've thought about getting an MT myself to be a very portable backup to my Jet City 20 watter.

The micro terror is a hybrid and it's unbelievably loud for the price/size. You can do a small gig without a mic no problem. Yea it's seriously tiny, but I don't give a f uh ck.
