The Orange Terror 500W Bass Head - 500W for £599!

A Classic, Resurrected

The Terror Bass hybrid head is something of a household name among bassists. Even after being discontinued, it remained a highly sought-after model, though elusive. Now Orange have brought it back to life with a couple of tweaks that look set to reaffirm its place among the most popular bass amps in the market.

500W of Hybrid Power

The Terror Bass features a valve preamp and solid state power amp, offering a gutsy, responsive tone that far outweighs its price point. Valve bass tone at this price is a rarity, and Orange have delivered in spectacular fashion.

Orange have specifically voiced this updated version to reflect the ever-popular tone of the AD200, a 100% valve behemoth. They’ve also kept the intuitive front panel layout but with an added clean switch, providing a little extra smoothness and headroom when needed. You’ve also got a pad switch that rounds 6db off the input sensitivity for dynamic sound regardless of your instrument.

Key Features

  • Class D Power Amplifier - The Terror bass is a 500 Watt hybrid amplifier with a valve preamp and a Class D, solid state power section. Analogue valve tone in a portable, compact lunchbox head.
  • Clean Switch - Drive and grit not your thing? Get a crystal clean tone at the flick of a switch.
  • Pad for Active Basses - The pad switch on the front of the Terror Bass reduces input sensitivity by 6dB, meaning the amp is perfect for active or passive basses.
  • FX Loop - The valve-driven FX loop on the Terror Bass is the perfect tool for creating your ideal signal chain.
  • Ground Lift - Eliminates any ground loop noise when using the Balanced Output.
