Very rich tone.
Very small and light, can easily just throw it in a bag and go.
LOUD. very loud. I never crank it full and it is enough to fill the whole room full of sound.
Surprisingly versatile. It does not have many controls but the range of sounds I managed to get out of it is staggering: Jazzy cleans, classic rock, heavy metal and so on.
Valve pre-amp. Yes. Valve. In this tiny box.
Responds to dynamics like a champ. You can literally play clean melodies, loud chords and distorted power chords by just altering the way you pluck the strings. Amazing.
Takes pedals well. You can actuall boost this thing with an overdrive pedal and achieve some true metal tones, It also handles loopers if the gain isn't too high. Sadly, chorus, delay and reverb no go after distortion is around 1 O'Clock.
Looks really cute.
No manual in the box (really surprizing) no warning not to plug into the cab with an instrument lead, no instruction how to replace a valve. Aren't instruction manuals mandatory by the EU law?
No FX Loop (More than makes up for it with its own sounds)
A completely useless headphone jack (the sound is dreadful)
Awkward mains plug, looks like a computer one (nitpicking here)
I love this thing. Had a lot of good comments from the audience about the sound. At this price point it is a steal. It is not perfect but I cannot think of a better sounding amp for this money.
I am in love.
Many people complain that this amp doesn't have enough clean headroom but it does. Granted, it doesn't sound Fender clean but it's still nice. But where this amp really excels is when you turn the gain up to 9, or 10 for some face melting british crunch! I play it mainly through a Seymour Duncan Stag Mag neck pickup and can honestly say that even though some people say this amp doesn't work well with single coils, it does! When I disable one of the humbucker coils the sound gets really creamy and crunchy, and sounds very tube-like.
I modified my Fender Mustang 1 amp so that I could connect its speaker to the PPC108 cab and now the amp sounds even better! The sounds seems more rounded and complete somehow, so I recommend running it with two 8'' speakers if you can to get the perfect Orange sound.
- amazing build quality
- awesome sound
- very responsive knobs
Frighteningly big noise from a diddy little box
Great build quality and really nice tube break up on the pre amp when the gain is pushed. The cleans are nice too.
Also, a great tip if you have a Line 6 POD or similar Amp modelling / FX box; use the Aux In to patch the modeller / FX direct to the Micro Terror solid state power amp stage (set the O/P settings to Combo Power Arp or Stack Power Amp).
Get one of these!
An excellent (and nice amplifier)
The mp3 player/cellphone playback feature doesn't work at all at low gain settings, but when you use more gain it works ok.
Overall finish is really good and it has very sturdy design.
If you're looking for a rock/hardrock amp for home use, this thing really is bang for the buck. You could use this for heavy metal also, but it has it's limits with really high gain.
