Tiny Terror Facts from the Orange Amp site forum

1. The back of the amp has 3 output jacks. Two of them are 8 ohms and the other one is a 16 ohm.

a) You can plug in one 16 ohm rated cabinet into the 16 ohm jack.

b) You can plug in an 8 ohm rated cabinet into any one of the 8 ohm jacks.

c) You can plug in 2 cabs rated at 16 ohms into both of the 8 ohm jacks.

however:

d) You can not plug in two 8 ohm cabs into both of the 8 ohm jacks.

2. It is important to note that no tube amp, the Tiny Terror included, should be turned on if it is not connected to a load. Load meaning a speaker or speakers. This will likely cause damage to the output transformer.

3. Early production models of the Tiny Terror were made in Korea. These models had the "standby" switch in between the "on/off" switch. This was changed very early on, and the "standby" switch was moved in between the "7/15" watt switch. It is highly recommended by some members to wait 30 seconds in standby mode before switching between the 7 and 15 watt setting.

4. All models of the Tiny Terror until recently were made in Korea. Newer models are now manufactured in China. An Orange amp representative has come on the forum and assured everyone that there is no difference between the two amps.

5. For reasons unbeknownst to all of us, the Tiny Terror comes without any manuals or paper work. Not even a warranty card. There is also no manual that can be obtained from the website at the present time.

6. It has been noted that although you have a 15 watt setting and a 7 watt setting, the 15 watt setting is not twice as loud as the 7 watt setting. In fact, at lower volumes it's almost impossible to tell the difference at all. However with the amp cranked, you will notice a subtle difference in volume.

What is very apparent though is the characteristic of each setting. 15 watts tends to be cleaner, more open and articulate. You'll find a bit more definition in whatever your playing. The 7 watt channel however is a little dirtier and more compressed. This setting works especially well with the bridge pickup, where as the 15 watt channel really shines with the neck pickup or the neck and bridge mixed together.

However you choose to play in each setting, one thing is for sure, both settings definitely adds some versatility to the amp. And that's a good thing.

7. It's also worth noting that the voice of the amp is much darker when played at lower volumes. The more you increase the volume the brighter the amps becomes. Don't be surprised if you find yourself rolling the tone knob on at lower volumes and rolling off at higher volumes.

8. Speaker efficiency plays a big role in how loud the Tiny Terror can get. Because the Tiny Terror is a low wattage amp, it can be important when gigging to convert as much of the watts into db's as possible. A cab loaded with a 16 ohm Celestion Vintage 30 has a 100db sensitivity rating, and therefore is quite loud compared to a Celestion G12T-75, often found in Marshall cabs, that has only a 97db rating. Although this may not seem like a lot, db's work on a logarythmic scale, and approximately 3 db's is the same as doubling the amps power!

About the Voltage

OFFICIAL RESPONSE FROM ORANGE ABOUT THE VOLTAGE:

Hello Dave,

All Tiny Terror's can be wired by a qualified amp service tech to run in any country in the world.

This is very easy and inexpensive for a technician to perform!

Best regards

Adrian

The mod looks very simple -- you have to unsolder two wires and resolder them different places on the transformer.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT YOU SHOULD NOT ATTEMPT THIS IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING BECAUSE THE STORED VOLTAGE IN AN UNPLUGGED AMP (even one this low wattage) CAN LITTERALY KILLYOU. DEAD.

Don't cheap out! Pay a professional. It should not cost more than a few bucks.
