Hey guys.. just looking around at some heads.. and came across the tiny terror by Orange.. Is this a decent practice head for rock, punk and maybe even metal? Also.. is $799AUD a good price for one of these heads?

yeah easily, I took on one of my uncles who's suppose to be the strongest in the family and has the hottest wife. Tamed him like my bitch and then wacked off afterward thinking about his wife.

All in all, a very productive day.

From all the reviews I've watched through youtube I would say yes.

I really want one.. If i had the money to get one, i would.. GO FOR IT!

Tiny terror will definately not get you into hard rock/metal without the help of any pedals.
It's a great amp, and will take pedals well, but it won't do it on it's own.

Don't know about the price. In europe it's cheaper, but that's probably because it's built here.

I'd look for other options.
#5
what other options would you recommend dude? If it helps ill be playing an MIA Fat strat..

Go for it. Amazing at that price.

I saw death cab for cutie in feb using a modified one. And they could afford whatever they wanted really.

No, you can easily do hard rock without pedals on a TT, but metal will be a stretch.

$799 AUD is pretty good.i got my tiny terror combo for $1079AUD and it's terrific! it has enough gain to do metal but it has heaps of mids and not much bass so an equaliser will really help, though you still can't get that really scooped metal sound; it just gets muddy if you try but a good equaliser helps get you a lot more towards metal.

Would an Orange TT be better for me than a Blackstar Ht-5?

If you find the vid by RobChappers on youtube, demoing his TT doing metal, you'll see what it's really capable of, I'd find it for you, but eh, I'd get distracted and do something else.

Quote by stykerwolf
You can gig with the TT, not so much with the HT-5

I'd take the TT because of the extra wattage and, well i havn't played a HT-5 so i'll keep my mouth shut for now


Man, 5 tube watts is easily enough to gig with, and you'll get that real nice power tube OD

Wait, I'm like vouching for both amps now

If all you need to be able to do is jam with a drummer (assuming there isn't another guitar and a bass in the mix) then I'd go with the HT-5. Its got luxuries such as: two channels, a real EQ, an effects loop, and the ISF knob which lets you get all wooden and British or American and priapic.

I actually jammed on a Tiny Terror before pulling the trigger on my HT-5 and I don't regret my decision one bit. I'd still love to have a Tiny Terror because even if it is a bit of a one-trick-pony, it does pull one hell of a trick. But, for day to day guitar playing where I like to play whatever, the HT-5 meets my needs the best.

Oh, and the HT-5 can do metal without a boost.

I consider buying it too, but there only is 1 channel. Wouldn't the Dual Terror be better?
#17
yer true.. so if i was to get the HT-5 would the Avatar 2x12 still be the best cab to get with it?

Have you played the Egnater Rebel 20 or the Vox Night Train?

I would have to really suggest you try the Egnater first. It's less expensive (well...I don't know about down under), more feature rich, and from what I've heard from both amps, it gives the Orange's tone a run for its money.

Although honestly, I'm wondering where the Rebel 30 head is. The second channel is a game changer...

Really you need to make the decision on your own. There are many fine little amps available lately, and the Tiny Terror is a wonderful amp that i purchased myself. If you strictly go off the input other people give you here to decide on both the amp and the cabinet for you, you will probably end up a bit dissapointed.

Go to a store, and try them out for yourself if you can. Listening to these amps through your headphones or speakers doesn't bring you even remotely close to getting a good sense of what their tone is like. In this same price range you could also look at certain Carvin, Peavey and Vox products.

I bought the tiny terror because I've turned into a pretty big fan of orange amps in general. I didn't care if it was the best product out there, damn it i wanted the amp and knew I would be happy with it :P. I do somewhat wish I had waited for the dual terror though!

Wouldn't the Dual Terror be better because of the 2 channels?

Not necessarily. I'd rather use a Single channel amp and use an EQ pedal to get the cleans. For the price of a Dual Terror, you could get something that sounds better.
