Orange Amplification #4 Terror Amplifier

This is a 15/7 watts all-tube guitar head. It could shortly be described as a rockerverb preamp in a terror chassis.

The package came in a normal Thomann cardboard box, inside of which was Orange's own cardboard box. Opening the second box you find a normal-sized terror amp, the manual and warranty papers and a handy bag in which you can easily carry the amp around.

The amp itself looks a lot like the Dark Terror, the title replaced by "#4" with Jim Root's signature underneath. Behind the amp you'll find small Slipknot and Stone Sour logos, so the signature tag does not weigh on this amp very heavily. Most people won't even notice it is a signature. It's small, weights about 7kg and is easy to haul around thanks to the bag.

The features are slightly pimped up Terror issue: On/Off and 15W/STBY/7W switches, volume, eq and gain controls, one input and three outputs(2x8 & 1x16 ohms). As with the Dark Terror, the #4 has an effects loop as well. It works as it should, without noticeably coloring your tone. Unlike the other Terror amps, the #4 doesn't have a shape control(which progressively scoops the mid when increased) but instead has a three-band EQ, which gives you more control on the tone. As with all the Terror amps excluding the Dual Terror, the #4 has only one channel, which limits the useability slightly.

The sound is what you might expect. It's pretty close to the Dark Terror, but thanks to the EQ is a tad bit more versatile. Compared to a standard Tiny Terror, you get more gain, without losing anything. The cleans are also what you might expect; troublesome. They sound good, but mostly when you're playing alone. Add a drummer to the mix, and the 15 watts just can't bring enough volume to be heard as well as with a bigger amp. But for everything else, the 15 watts are well loud enough, and you can comfortably play in a metal, as well as a classic rock, or pretty much any genre band without feeling the tone is anything but great.

Quality-wise, what's there not to like? The chassis is solid and the controls are properly installed(no wobbling). I bought this one as soon as it came out, and in that time it hasn't failed me even once. I play a lot at home and on average about 5/month in rehearsals and gigs, and despite that, I'm still happily running on the original tubes.

Overall I can't give it a perfect score for lacking the power to deliver clean tones in a performing metal band, and the fact that it has only one channel. But other than that, I'm very pleased with the #4.
