Orange Terror Amps: Which Pot Tapers Used?

In reading a recent thread on another forum on pot tapers (audio vs. linear) I began wondering which type of pot tapers might be found on Orange Terrors. I know my Dark Terror's Shape control is a double ganged pot, but I don't the style of taper as I don't know either of the volume and gain knob ta...

Re: Dark Terror Volume Same in 7 Watts as 15 Watts !?

Just a follow up on the Dark Terror issue: I got my Dark Terror back from then vendor's tech/repair department. The tech told me that he thinks that my amp is functioning normally. Whatever I experienced in a sudden sound difference may be an intermittent issue and thus difficult to find. I did noti...

Re: Sold my last orange...

By all means, hang out here, you can learn much and what we don't know about
Orange is not worth knowing.

Did you sell your amp because the amp was having problems?

Re: Dark Terror Volume Same in 7 Watts as 15 Watts !?

Believe me please. At lower volumes for home use, there is a noticeable difference between 7 and 15 watts. It's not just the small change in volume; its' also has two slightly different timbres between highs, lows, and mids. Once again the shape knob makes shaping the e.q. variances as it should wh...

Re: Dark Terror Volume Same in 7 Watts as 15 Watts !?

Just an update from a somewhat embarrassed Dark Terror owner. It looks like my Dark Terror is back to normal this morning. I put back in the older set of tubes and took out the brand new ones and to my surprise the amp seems normal with the right amount timbre to it's tone which by my standards is m...

Re: Dark Terror Volume Same in 7 Watts as 15 Watts !?

Possibly the selector switch, or could it be the gain knob...not responding. In either event, the amp's tone has definitely changed. I know because I've been playing it for just 2 years and this the 2nd. bad spell for it. So, after spending good money on fixing once, I have a decision to make; wheth...

Dark Terror Volume Same in 7 Watts as 15 Watts !?

While playing my Dark Terror today, I played in the 15 watt mode. A few minutes passed and then I switched to the 7 watt mode. It was no quieter in 7 than the 15 watt side. I'm thinking that the amp is now “stuck” in the 15 watt mode. As a home player I do rely on the 7 watts for quieter playing not...

Re: Talk to me about Orange Clean Tones

I've got a Rocker 15 Combo and am very happy with the cleans on the natural channel. At least in the case of the Oranges with a natural channel with no EQ the clean sound is going to be very revealing in terms of: - Do your pickups sound good clean? - Are your pickups adjusted well? - Is your playi...

Re: Talk to me about Orange Clean Tones

I'd consider adding the Dark Terror to the OP's list up top. Yes, I know. Owners of this amp are not buying it for its clean side. Being just a single channel Orange with a SHAPE knob as its e.q. is not for everyone. And, what beninma posted about Orange cleans with no little to no e.q., and how rev...

Well done! Well recorded, too. I like it and your Tele' sounds really great through that rig.

Re: Jim Root Dark Terror Cab

Another thought I had: The cab is probably only about 5 inches from the wall. Could this make it sound bad at all? It's a half closed back cab. It may well be a factor as to volume level and overall sound characteristics. Not knowing the room dimensions, I'd say move the amp out several all feet fr...

Re: Jim Root Dark Terror Cab

I don't know what type of music you plan on playing with the JR #4. I don't know if this is a help, or not; I have the Dark Terror and a PPC112 with the V30 speaker. In a smaller room, I can put its volume at 1 to 2 o'clock and the gain @ say 9:30 am and achieve a good clean tone using my Les Pauls...

Attenuators And 15-Watt Terrors?

It may seem odd that I'd ask about attenuators for a 7/15-watt Dark Terror amp, but there are circumstances where I wonder if I could squeeze a bit more volume from the amp, but still be sensible concerning home volumes. Some opinions run that an attenuator can be the cause of amp failures with rega...

Re: Or15 noisy gain pot

I'm wondering if the OP's gain knob issue is not tube related, but a faulty gain pot. I bought a new Dark Terror over 2 yers ago and the gain knob still has a scratchy, static type of noise. I have retubed the amp with some quality tubes and the noise is still there. Shortly after purchasing the Dar...
