Dual Terror sounds harsh

Post by Splinter77 » Sat Sep 09, 2017 3:59 am

Hi all,
So I am new to the orange forum and to the orange amp family. After playing a friend's Dual Terror I decided to buy myself one. This is actually also my first tube amp so I am sorry if what I'm trying to explain doesn't make sense. So I found a really good deal on a used Dual Terror and a ppc212 closed back cab. The amp showed up a few days ago and I have to say I am really disappointed. I absolutly loved my friends but mine sounds really shrill and harsh. To get any kind of decent sound out of it I have to turn the tone knob all the way down so that it cuts out the shrill harshness. At this point I am not sure what to do. I have time to return the amp if need to but I really wanted this to be like my friends amp. Any advice?
Thanks,
Splinter

Sounds like tubes need replacing.

Dang ok. When I bought the head the store listed it as mint and worked as new. Thanks for the response.

Try it through a different cabinet. Speakers may not be broken in yet either...
