NAMM 2016: Orange Tiny Terror half stack; new 4 Stroke bass amp heads

Tiny Terror

It's been ten years since Orange introduced the iconic range.

Tiny Terror documentary also announced to mark the range’s discontinuation.

Orange has marked the tenth anniversary of its Tiny Terror range with a limited edition half stack an a star-studded documentary, whilst also unveiling new 4 Stroke bass amp heads at NAMM 2016.

Orange’s UK Custom Shop has designed and produced 110 special Tiny Terror tenth anniversary half stacks. The head is a point-to-point hand wired recreation of the original, featuring premium components throughout and housed in a polished mirror-effect stainless steel chassis. Each head comes with its own bespoke open-back speaker cabinet. The cabinet features an original British Racing Green and will not be available separately. Fitted with a brace of 10” Celestion G10 Gold alnico speakers, the cabinet and head dovetail together seamlessly to produce classic Tiny Terror tone.

Each model comes with a certificate of authenticity and is signed by Orange founder and CEO, Cliff Cooper.

The firm has also announced a special documentary, which you can view below, featuring members of Eagles of Death Metal and Slipknot to mark the discontinuation of the range.

Elsewhere, Orange has also introduced new 4 Stroke 300 and 500 bass amp heads, which, it says, is a response to the array of Class D bass amp offerings from other manufacturers.

The new all analogue 4 Stroke 300 and 500 heads are designed to deliver optimum audio quality in a 2U rack-mountable format.

The centrepiece of the 4 Stroke Series is the four-band parametric EQ network, offering players full control over their tone. The finely tuned Q curves of the frequency dials aim to achieve a balance between precision and usability, whilst each band can be controlled with up to 18dB of cut and boost.

The 4 Stroke’s foot-switchable on-board compression has been engineered to track seamlessly and maintains the dynamics of the performer for a full sound with plenty of depth. Available in either 300W or 500W versions, both include line-level and balanced outputs, plus a pair of parallel speaker outputs. Its Class A/B nature also means it can also be run without a speaker load, making it suitable for direct recording.  

Orange has also launched a number of non-amplification products at NAMM 2016, including two guitar pedals, an all-new headphone range and new Twister Cable.

'Discontinuation' is probably the form familiar form of the word. 'Discontinuance' is primarily confined to legal documents.
