The ultimate Orange lunchbox amp comparison! (7 amps)

Post by Guitarjon » Mon Sep 09, 2019 6:42 pm

Hey guys!

So I'm back with a post about lunchbox amps but this time I want to talk about the Orange lunchbox amplifiers! I really love everything about those amps. They sound killer, they look cool and all of the features they have tend to be useful as well. About a year ago or so I started with the Rocker 15 Terror and since then this thing has gotten a little bit out of hand haha. I couldn't be more happy though.

So I compared all the amps side by side with a couple different guitars and with various styles/gain settings. Basically from clean to heavy rock/metal and some stuff in between. Hearing them all side by side really lets you hear the tonal differences between each of the amps. Obviously some of them work better for certain tones than the others so perhaps this comparison can also help people to choose which one is the best for them.

The amps featured in this comparison are:
-Tiny Terror
-Dual Terror
-OR15
-Jim Root Terror
-Rocker 15 Terror
-Brent Hinds Terror
-Dark Terror

I don't own the micro amps or the bass terror so those aren't included. I would love to know which ones you guys enjoyed the most in this test and also what kind of styles you tend to play. It's always interesting to know what people would choose.

Nice video, very well done. I've seen some shootouts like this before, but none were done this well. Thanks for posting!

Really nice comparison.

The Tiny Terror is still a benchmark! I am sure they are gonna reissue it someday. I also quite like de Jim Root, and I am not even a hard rock/metal player.

They all sound very similar to me. I could get along fine with any of them. I've got an OR15 because of the effects loop, but the Rocker 15 also has one plus a clean channel. They're all pretty nifty amps.
