The Micro Dark sports a new high gain circuit which blends valve and solid state technology. The preamp uses single 12AX7/ECC83 valve and produces a huge range of usable tones with warm cleans, smooth overdrive and fat, singing distortion. Its robustly designed solid state output section means the Micro Dark can be paired with any 8-16 Ohm cabinet.

SKU: MICRO_DARK_STACK Categories: , , Tags: , , , , Brands: .

Building on the overwhelming success of our acclaimed Dark Terror and Dual Dark amps, we’ve distilled thousands of customer demands into a pint-sized valve hybrid head – the Micro Dark.

The Micro Dark shares the same intuitive Shape control combined with a new 12AX7-driven high gain preamp section which yields screaming dirty tones that make a mockery of its miniature frame. Like its bigger brothers, however, the Micro Dark’s smoky black chassis and simple layout actually disguises its cunning versatility.

Of course, there’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 you’ll find a rich and diverse pallette of classy and confident tones. From squeaky clean to brash and mean – whatever your style – you’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 rig… Plug into something a little larger, though, and you might find your new secret weapon in the studio!

Key Features

Valve/Solid State Hybrid Design
The Micro Dark sports a new high gain circuit which blends valve and solid state technology. The preamp uses single 12AX7/ECC83 valve and produces a huge range of usable tones with warm cleans, smooth overdrive and fat, singing distortion. Its robustly designed solid state output section means the Micro Dark can be paired with any 8-16 Ohm cabinet.

Shape Control
Our exclusive Shape control varies the midrange response whilst interacting with the bass and treble. Working from the 12 o’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 Shape’s effect becomes even more pronounced, especially as you begin to push the Gain control. A scooped, thrashy voicing with a ‘smiley face’ EQ is easily achieved in the fully clockwise position, whilst turning fully anti clockwise aggressively boosts the mids, for a more ‘classic’ bark.

Buffered Effects Loop
The Micro Dark’s fully buffered, low impedance loop allows for any number of effects and cables to be patched in without sacrificing tone. It’s incredibly transparent, meaning your pedal arsenal will perform to 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 mic’d Orange 4×12″ 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.

    Mind blowing! I can't believe the sound out of this thing, its so small yet it pumps out so much volume. Orange wasn't lying when the advertised this as a 20W amp. I can get Shimmering cleans, blues, rock and straight up metal with this amp. The tone control is genius!! Its a mid contour rather than a normal EQ. ONE KNOB DOES IT ALL!
