NAMM 2020: Orange Terror Stamp – Hybrid pedal amp with FX Loop
The new Terror Stamp is Orange’s foray into the pedal-format amplifier. Inspired by the success of the Micro series amps, this latest addition serves the Orange recipe in a yet smaller form-factor. It really is hardly bigger than a postage stamp!
Orange Terror Stamp
At first glance, the Orange Terror Stamp looks like a regular effects pedal. But underneath its unassuming exterior lies an actual amplifier circuit – probably for guitarists, because the 20 watts might not be enough for bass. With a Class AB circuit (transistor) and an ECC83 preamp tube, the Stamp delivers 20 watts of the famous “Killer Orange Tone”. The resulting tones should be similar to those of the Micro Terror and Micro Dark amps.
The pedal comes with two Volume controls, as well as a Shape and Gain control. You can also use a foot switch if you want to control the master volume on the fly. It comes with on / off switch, located on its left side .
On the back you find an FX loop (which also doubles as the line out) next to the input, a headphone output with CabSim (which is always engaged) and a speaker output of 8-16 ohms . The power supply is a slightly thicker barrel connector rated at 15 volts.
The Orange Terror Stamp Amp weighs just 380 grams and is definitely a candidate for a permanent place on the board. Not bad for a hybrid tube/solid state compact amp.
Also new from Orange and worth checking out are the Bass Butler and Little Bass Thing for bassists.
