Those chumps in the HT-5 thread think they own the best low wattage amp on the market.....

Lets show them that the tiny terror is a better amp than the HT-5 could ever be!!

This is to-

Let's perpetuate the continued hype of one of the most overrated amps EVER! I can't believe I was once considering buying one of these.

Needs moar 5khz. It's ok for doom metal but not much else. The best thing about it is that it inspired a range of 'lunchbox' amps, some of which are quite good.

Does anyone know any mods to get the presence up a bit?

It's an awesome little amp. Why all the haters? It's great as an introduction to tube amps. Could do with an FX loop tho

Because its a $600 intro to tube amps, when there are better amps for $200-$300.

It was a good amp when it came out, but now the competition has got much better. Which is a good thing I suppose. A year or 2 ago the only small cheap valve amps were the Tiny terror and the Epiphone Valve junior.

Quote by SwampAshSpecial
the Tiny Terror lacks the gain and tightness that is needed for any type of metal - even with a boost the metal tones are at best mediocre.

Have you ever listened to doom metal? tightness isn't really a requirement. And the TT does have enough gain for almost anything really, just nowhere near enough treble & upper mids, even when running it through vintage 30s!

also, if you listen to the clip on my profile, it sounds fairly tight (ok not like a 'proper' metal amp, but its better than most similar amps)

Because it doesn't have the tightness or gain to do very much in the metal department and the dark tone of the circuit makes crunch mediocre as well.

Plus it's PCB city for $600. That's a hell no for me since it makes maintenance a nightmare.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

Just did this, it pretty much nails the rust in peace tone:
http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/FischmungaXTR/music/covers/

I apologise in advance for the terribly poor playing - i recently switched to .10s which didnt help (thats my only excuse )

First clip was done with an EQ and took hours to get.

This one I just did with an OD pedal, treble up full, tone nearly full on amp. SM57 off axis near centre of cone. Im quite surprised myself - never been able to get that crunchy high end before.
