    Incredible. Tight, punchy, PROFOUNDLY deep, warm, tubby, rich, tons of headroom, fantastic sound. I MIGHT actually like it MORE than my IP...no Hi-pass involved, and you can certainly feel that bottom octave, and certainly NO compression or limiting, HUGE dynamics.

    And I tried the big tube 200 watt...meh...too much squash and crapping out at higher levels...they're nice, but the Tiny Terror is incredible!

    Discuss amongst yourselves...

    Cheers,
    Cameron

    Interesting. I run my HT112ER with my Markbass as a small rig but have never tried this combination. I do own an AD200B and actually quite like it through the HT, so hmmmm..... Certainly the HT is my all time favorite small cab.

    I got to try a Bass Terror while visiting Dublin the year before last and was quite impressed...always wondered how it'd sound with my Berg 1x12's.

    This is a small ;) thing-
    But the "Tiny" Terror are guitar amps-
    The "Terror Bass" are the bass amps-no "Tiny" in the name!
    (Yes I'm nit-pickin'!- but it makes me nuts!)

    I love my 500w through my Ampeg 8 x 10
    Also use it as my living room amp w/ a 1 x 15

    I had the TerrorBass500 for a while.
    While it's tone wasn't my personal thing; it was 500 really strong watts.
    TerrorBass1000?

    That's, like, what: twice as much, right?

    I was really looking into possibly getting the 500w version of the Orange Terror Bass to pair it with my Mesa/Boogie PH610 cab. I love a little dirt and grit in my tone, but also relative clean and middy tones as well when I need them.

    Yup...and it sounds even better. Headroom for days...clean, warm, rich tubby tone...sounds great flat.


    Spends the extra $100.00 and get the 1,000 watter...it sounds better, it really does. Profoundly deep and punchy, and really warm.

    What's long and hard on a bass player?

    Grade 4 math!

    Hey Cameron, thanks for posting this! I would have never thought of that combination! Very interesting! Compact, easy to move, fantastic sound. I love those three things!

    I'll bet the Terror Bass 1000 would sound good through one of Jim's new HD112 cabs. It's the same woofer as the HT112ER, just a different driver for the highs.

    "Hmmmm" (as I brush my hand across my chin)

    Wound up picking up an Orange TB500H yesterday. The Orange rep was visiting my local shop while I was there. Well, they made a deal that was incredibly sweet! I love the blend of old school tone with modern design sensibilities. Getting more warm, fat low end with just the right amount of high end for slaps/pops when needed.

    I have a Bergantino AE410 that will be superb, but I am trying to downsize to a rig that can do small, medium, 'or' larger gigs if I need more punch. thinking about a Bergantino HD112 (pair) or maybe Aguilar DB112's. Probably prefer the Bergantino's since I've always had great experience with Jim's amazing cabs!

    I have always been interested in the 500w version of the Terror Bass, however have yet to get my hands on one. From the reviews I have read and demo videos I have watched it seems like a pretty solid little amp.

    I had a similar "oh my god" moment when I plugged in my new Aguilar DB750 through my Bergie HT 1x12ER last night. Wow! Those cabs can do the quick, small gig, micro head thing extremely well, but a giant tube based head is a whole new world through them. Fat, full and deep...love it!

    I've got a couple of Acme Sound Full-Range 1x12 cabs that I'd love to try with a Terror Bass 1000. At first glance, this might not seem like a great combination. But with the Orange's ability to provide gobs of tonal "color" to the Acmes' neutrally-voiced "blank canvas", and with the Acmes' ability to handle the Orange's raw power, I'll bet it would sound surprisingly good. :cool:

    Hmmm... I may have to break out my series speaker cable and run my two 4-ohm Acmes (Flatwound and Full Range) off of my TB1000 set to 8-ohm mode. Great idea! :bassist: :bassist: :bassist: :cool:

    So how many watts would your Acmes draw from the Terror Bass 1000 in series mode? 500 watts total?

    Let us know how it sounds!
