The Orange Micro Dark takes inspiration from the acclaimed Dark Terror and Dual Dark amps and puts some high gain power into an ultra compact, valve/solid-state hybrid 20w head.
On the surface, with its black chassis, the it clearly aims to rock hard with its 12AX7 preamp section that yields some seriously screaming dirty tone, the Micro Dark is deceptively versatile. Beneath the menacing exterior you’ll find a rich and diverse palette of classy and confident tones. From squeaky clean to brash and mean.
The Volume and Gain knobs are self explanatory whilst the Shape control varies themidrange response whilst interacting with the bass and treble - making for a good range of tones from one simply knob! A scooped, thrashy voicing with an aggressive ‘smiley face’ EQ is easily achieved in the fully clockwise position, whilst turning fully anticlockwise boosts the mids, for a more classic ‘bark’.
Other features include a transparent fully buffered effects loop and a headphone output with our popular CabSim circuitry.
With the optional matching PPC108 speaker cabinet, the Micro Dark makes for a perfect portable practice rig which also mics up superbly in the studio. To properly shake things up however, plug into a full sized Orange PPC412 and unleash the full potential of this remarkable micro amp head.
