Orange Terror 1000 reviews?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by KrisWarrington, Jan 13, 2012.

  1. Since kustom discontinued the groove line I was looking into alternatives in case my head goes down. I stumbled across the Orange Terror 1000 but couldn't find any videos or reviews that gave a good breakdown of the tone. I usually don't mess with anything that has a tube in it but Orange has a pretty good reputation. Any thoughts on the 1000 or the 500?

    I had a 500, I loved it. Great sound, more power than I could use, great form factor. I sold it to buy a WAS. I love the WAS but miss the TB500 too.
  3. The one thing I did notice is they don't make any rack mountable bass heads. Does it have more of a vintage sounding tone or a more modern?

    It's exactly the same pre-amp/eq section as the TB500, with a shed load more headroom. I've used the TB500 for over two years as my main amp.

    We reviewed the Terror Bass 500 in BGM issue #6, and it performed exceptionally well in our bench tests, and sounds great. I have heard the Terror Bass 1000 on several occasions, and it's just more of the same - which is a good thing! That 500 is hella loud, though, too.
  6. I like how the pages flip, fancy.

    The Terror bass 500 has been my main head for almost two years and I couldn't be happier... If it was available when I bought the 500 I would have gotten the 1000...
