Overview of Orange Amps Terror Bass 500-Watt Bass Head
The Terror Bass is back and it sounds better than ever. With a valve preamp and a 500W Class D solid state power amp, the all-new Terror Bass sounds closer to our flagship AD200 than ever before.
Though the circuit is completely new, the Terror Bass retains the control layout from the original amp, with the addition of a Clean switch. This reduces gain and smoothes the top-end, giving this super-simple amp an even greater range of tones than its predecessor. From clean Pop sounds through to gritty Rock crunch, the Terror Bass can do it all.
There’s also a -6dB pad switch, meaning active and passive instruments are equally well catered for.
The Terror bass uses a lightweight and efficient Class D power amp, with 500 watts of power into 4 Ohms and 250 Watts into 8 Ohms. Coupled with the Balanced XLR output and valve-driven FX Loop, the Terror bass is perfect for any situation, whether it’s the studio, rehearsal or a life on the road.
The preamp section of the Terror Bass is the same valve design as used in the flagship Orange bass amp, the AD200. Just like its all-valve bigger brother, the Terror Bass is a classic, uncomplicated amplifier, designed to give you the best tone.
The Terror bass is a 500 Watt hybrid amplifier with a valve preamp and a Class D, solid state power section. All-analogue valve tone in a portable, compact lunchbox head. Drive and grit not your thing? Get a crystal clean tone at the flick of a switch. The pad switch on the front of the Terror Bass reduces input sensitivity by 6dB, optimising the amp for active or passive basses. The valve-driven FX loop on the Terror Bass is the perfect tool for creating your ideal signal chain. Eliminates any ground loop noise when using the Balanced Output.
