Orange MD Micro Dark 20W Hybrid Guitar Amplifier Head
12AX7/ECC83 PREAMP VALVE | UNEXPECTEDLY LOUD | AUX INPUT
TINY AMP, ENORMOUS TONE
WELL, YOU DID ASK FOR IT¦
Building on the overwhelming success of our acclaimed Dark Terror and Dual Dark amps, weâ€™ve distilled thousands of customer demands into a pint-sized valve hybrid head â€“ the Micro Dark.
The Micro Dark shares the same intuitive Shape control combined with a new ECC83 (12AX7)-driven high gain preamp section, yielding screaming dirty tones that make a mockery of its miniature frame. Like its bigger brothers, however, the Micro Darkâ€™s smoky black chassis and simple layout actually disguise its cunning versatility.
Of course, thereâ€™s plenty of gain on tap to satisfy even the most discerning devotee of distortion, but this little beast is by no means just a one-trick Metal monster! Beneath the menacing exterior youâ€™ll find a rich and diverse palette of classy and confident tones. From squeaky clean to brash and mean â€“ whatever your style â€“ youâ€™re gonna love this thing.
Other features include a transparent, fully-buffered effects loop and a headphone output with our popular CabSim circuitry. With the optional PPC108 cabinet, the Micro is an ideal practice rigâ€¦ Plug into something a little larger, though, and you might find your new secret weapon in the studio!
VALVE/SOLID STATE HYBRID DESIGN
The Micro Dark sports a new high gain circuit which blends valve and solid state technology. The preamp uses a single ECC83 (12AX7) valve and produces a huge range of usable tones with warm cleans, smooth overdrive and immense, crushing distortion. Its robustly designed solid state output section means the Micro Dark can be paired with any 8-16 Ohm cabinet.
Our exclusive Shape control varies the midrange response whilst interacting with the bass and treble. Working from the 12 oâ€™clock position, a subtle nudge to the left adds more midrange and smooths the highs. A clockwise notch or two reduces the mids and brightens the tone.
At the extremes the Shapeâ€™s effect becomes even more pronounced, especially as you begin to push the Gain control. A scooped, thrashy voicing with a â€˜smiley faceâ€™ EQ is easily achieved in the fully clockwise position, whilst turning fully anticlockwise aggressively boosts the mids, for a more â€˜classicâ€™ bark.
BUFFERED EFFECTS LOOP
The Micro Darkâ€™s fully buffered, low impedance loop allows for any number of effects and cables to be patched in without sacrificing tone. Itâ€™s incredibly transparent, meaning your pedal arsenal will perform at its absolute peak.
CABSIM HEADPHONE OUTPUT
A popular feature on our Crush Series amps, the headphone output includes our CabSim circuitry which faithfully emulates the sound of a micâ€™d Orange 4Ã—12â€³ cabinet loaded with our flagship Voice of the World speakers. Use headphones for silent practice or connect to a mixer/recording console to capture huge, authentic Orange tones in the studio.
