The uncomplicated, external layout of the Terror Bass is like the original with the addition of a clean switch. Inside it is a 500W hybrid bass amp with an all valve preamp and a solid-state power amp. This gives it a sound akin to the Orange flagship bass amp, the AD200 with the added advantage of allowing bass players to back off some of the gain early in the input stage offering them more headroom and smooth clean sounds.
Play this versatile, Class D amp through an 8 ohm cabinet and it will deliver 250W of power, put it through two 8 ohm cabinets to get a full 500W. A Limiter Switch protects the amp by preventing the output stage from pushing too hard into 4 ohms when using 500W of power. The Pad Switch helps players adjust input sensitivity by up to 6dB, making it the amp perfect for active or passive basses.
The Terror Bass is the latest addition to the much loved, Terror series. It delivers the classic British tone synonymous with Orange, from an ultra-lightweight lunchbox construction.
Orange Ambassadors using the Terror Bass include John McVie (Fleetwood Mac) and Steve Micciche (Every Time I Die) who said, ‘It has the low end of the AD200 which is fantastic, it’s got a lot of growl to it, the high end is punch and very clear, it definitely keeps up with the AD200 as far as tone goes.’ Also using the new amp is Sergio Vega (Deftones / Quicksand) who commented ‘the Terror Bass amp is cool because it adds a lot of warmth, it adds details, it kind of allows me to shape what I’m doing and give it its best possible presentation.’
