Not to be too anal about this or anything... but:

"The front panel is not surprising and it contains the exact same controls as the Tiny Terror"

Erm, not quite: the TT has a Tone control, the DkT has a Shape control - very different in function.

Got to say that the quantity of recordings made available makes that one an intersting one.

Hey Ant! Yeah man, still really happy with mine. Skullfunk were recording again last night, and every time I get to hear my amp on its own I grin :)

Talking of which - I'm going to be away all over Christmas, do you still want to borrow it and see what you can get out of it? It'll be interesting to hear someone else's opinion!

I'm not here around Xmas either - going 21st coming back 2nd.

I'd love to too - I could try to do some recording RV50/DkT/AD5!!! :lol:


If I ever figure out how to export a record on MP3 in Pro Tools that is.....
I've just about mastered recording two poorly played tracks...... :oops:

Just got my DT and my review is that this thing kicks arse! The range of sounds is impressive to say the least! :twisted:

Soo, not a darkie, eh? How about " scary little black amp"? Whatever you call it this thing is awesome!

I think Orange is going to run out of "Terror" names at some point, but there's still room for a Mesa-inspired "Triple Terror" full-sized head with multiple rectification options 8) .
