Re: Can you run a 16 and an 8 ohm cab together?

You could probably do it on the Micro Terror, it has 4 ohms minimum and just one jack with no switch. I run it on 4 ohms daily (2 8 ohm speakers in parallel) and don't have any problems. However, having tried something like this before with another amp, I can say that the 8 ohm speaker will be twice...

Re: Micro Terror Advice

Strangely enough, I also found the stock ECC83 to be a bit higher gain than my Sovtek 12AX7WA and WB valves, but it could that my Sovteks are more worn, although I do prefer the Sovteks to the stock. One interesting thing about that article is that it lists the Sovtek 12AX7WC as having lower gain th...

Re: Micro Terror Advice

I don't think that even matters, they can vary, my JJ ECC803s are certainly much higher gain than all the Sovtek 12AX7WA and WB valves I tried, but not according to that test. I don't know if it varies as much in batches or individual pieces, but it certainly varies. The ones I have also vary among ...

Re: 4 watts can be loud enough!

I have a Fender Greta, 2 watts. I can crank it all the way up with the tiny stock speaker, but as soon as I hook it up to any real cab, it's way too loud to crank and not experience eardrum pains.

Re: Micro Terror Advice

If you want a higher gain valve that sounds good in that amp, try the JJ ECC803.

interesting fact: the Musicmaster bass amp does not have a valve phase inverter, it uses a transformer instead.

Re: Micro Dark and PPC108 cab

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately when using the FX loop, I act on any pedal I can just hear a "pop" sound and nothing else. The problem has been described by other users (on the web). I wrote to Orange and I got as feedback: Hello xxxxx, Certain pedals will always pop when in effects loops due ...

Re: French rock? anyone?

We do not intend to have success, we are all around or over 40, with jobs and kids (all the kids playing in the video are ours apart two borrowed to a neighbor :D ) , so our only objective is to create things we like. It's really good though, professional looking video and the music is better than ...

Re: I did n't expect that in my Neck Pickup!

Either they liked it and put it in another guitar, or they didn't like it and swapped it out, then sold the guitar.

But sometimes with pickups, it may be that one pickup sounds great in one guitar, and not so good in another.

Re: Mini Clean Tube Head?

Then you should probably look into 50 watts at least. If VHT maybe their solid-state heads.

Re: Mini Clean Tube Head?

I don't know why no one has mentioned the Micro Terror, it has excellent cleans if you set the gain in the correct position.

Re: IS THIS OK: guitar-->basshead-->guitarcab ??

I contacted the company, and they informed me that running 16 ohms is fine but that the power wattage out to the speaker will be about double from running an 8 ohm cab. So that means that you'll be seeing about 80 watts out when you set the master on the 40 watt setting IF you are using a 16 ohm ca...
