Orange Amplification Unveils Brent Hinds Terror, Crush Mini, and PPC212V Cabinet
The Terror features two channels and a new gain structure.
United Kingdom (January 24, 2018) -- Orange Amplification is excited to launch the new Crush Mini improving the amp’s sound and usability compared to its predecessor the Micro Crush. The combination of battery saving features, wood and orange tolex construction, "Pics Only" inspired 1970s design and an all analogue approach to tone makes this the best specified mini-combo for the musician on-the-go.
The top panel has been completely redesigned, bringing in the familiar shape control from its bigger brothers. The gain, shape and volume controls can be used to push the gain stage and create “real” sounding crunch and high gain, while the shape allows you to sculpt thick mids through to scooped metal tones.
The new 8 Ohm Speaker Output of the Crush Mini really opens up this amplifier’s capability allowing it to be plugged into a cabinet including Orange’s largest guitar cabinet, the PPC412. The Headphone Output permits the speaker output to be disengaged making it a great choice for silent practice. The Crush Mini also features Aux-in letting users play along to their music, and sees the return of the built-in Chromatic Tuner making it the perfect portable practice rig.
Orange Amplification is delighted to present the Brent Hinds Terror, designed in collaboration with the guitarist and vocalist of the multi-award winning band Mastodon. The latest Terror amp has its own distinctive voice and character, features styling based on the tribal imagery of Brent ’s facial tattoo and is completed by his signature.
The new Brent Hinds Terror features two channels and a new gain structure that give the latest Terror amp a completely individual nature and personality. The single-control natural channel has been redesigned to have more bottom-end yet retaining the finely balanced and highly playable character of the Terror series. The sensitivity of the new gain structure is far higher compared to previous Terrors, brightening up sound at lower levels and fattening it up the more it is dialed in.
The power switching options of the Brent Hinds Terror offers 0.5, 1, 7 or 15 Watts, making it perfect for bedroom, studio and stage. For the best possible tone and durability, the new amp uses the same beefy transformers as the rest of the Terror family to take advantage of the EL84 output. This gives players warm valve compression and saturation at neighbour friendly levels. This amp personifies all Brent’s uniqueness, both stylistically and tonally.
Orange Amplification has been at the forefront of cabinet design for the past 50 years, with the PPC412 becoming an industry standard.
Designed to provide the “Orange Sound” in a lightweight, portable cabinet, the new PPC212V is Orange’s first vertical cabinet. Using 50 years of experience in cabinet design, the PPC212V combines 15mm Birch Plywood and an open back design to reduce weight, without compromising on tone or durability. The new cabinet uses Celestion Neo Creamback speakers providing a clear and defined sound.
Finished in Orange's legendary livery the PPC212V is the ideal companion to the Orange Terror range, providing performers with the perfect sounding cabinet whilst having the benefit of a smaller stage footprint. The cab is significantly lighter than the PPC212 and capable of handling up to 120 Watts of power.
