Orange Micro Dark

Orange’s latest hybrid head crams more gain than ever into a titchy package. RICHARD PURVIS gets out his magnifying glass…

Ta-daa! Orange cranked up the excitement before the launch of the Micro Dark with a social media campaign that challenged us to guess what its game-changing new product might be. An amp that could control the human mind via Bluetooth? A rotary speaker cabinet that could also churn butter? An all-valve spaceship? You could be forgiven a slight twinge of disappointment when it turned out to be essentially a cross between two existing products: the Micro Terror (very small) and the Dark Terror (very rock).

It’s still a fine idea, though, and we’ll forgive them if it sounds good. This is the latest in what is becoming a fairly long line of deceptively teeny Orange amps, all of them descended from the original Tiny Terror – which really was a game-changer – and in stark contrast to monstrous heads such as the OR120 with which the company first made its name.

About The Guitar Magazine

The February issue of Guitar & Bass magazine is available in print and digital forms from Friday 8 January. Join us as we take a trip to Guitar Town, tracing the history of the Nashville music scene and profiling a who’s who of the city’s galaxy of guitar stars. We go guitar shopping in Tennessee's neon-lit state capital and talk to two of the world’s leading fretted instrument experts, George Gruhn and Walter Carter, about the state of the vintage market today and we also stop by at the Gibson Custom Shop to see the company’s True Historic Les Pauls roll off the production line and find out what makes them the company’s best guitars since its golden era. Elsewhere in the mag, our DIY Workshop shows you how to ID a genuine 1950s Stratocaster, we talk guitar with Aerosmith legend Brad Whitford and we review a stack of great new gear from PRS, Dr Z, Orange, TC Electronic, Louis Electric, Fulltone, Hartke, Smorg Pedalboards, Pigtronix and more. If that’s not enough for you, how about the chance to win one of three PRS guitars for a year and become a roving reporter for G&B in the process? Buy the February issue of Guitar & Bass magazine in print and digital forms from Friday 8 January.
