Expected more than the Micro Terror, but left me cold
4 January 2019
I'd heard a few reviews on YouTube and it seemed like a higher gain version of the Micro Terror with fx-loop and a better headphone/emulated out - cool I thought, but I was a real let down.
The distortion/gain tone was a different voice to the Micro Terror and just didn't sound nice. The dynamics were there with the pre-amp tube, but it still needed a boost with an OD pedal.
The fx loop allowed a reverb pedal to mix which was great compared to the Micro Terror, but the Headphone/Emulated out sounded terrible, fizzy, thin etc. No idea where they get the Orange 4x12 emulation, I didn't hear it.
If only Orange had improved the Micro Terror with an fx-loop, more gain and a better headphone out for practice, that would have been fab, it's what I thought the Micro Dark was going to be, but it sadly wasn't - shame and a missed opportunity.
