MD20 Micro Dark Head

Building on the success of the acclaimed Dark Terror and Dual Dark amps, Orange introduces their new pint-sized valve hybrid head - the Micro Dark. The Micro Dark brings 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 matching PPC108 speaker cabinet, the Micro Dark makes for a perfect portable practice rig which also mics up superbly in the studio. To properly shake things up however, plug into a full sized Orange PPC412 and unleash the full potential of this remarkable micro amp head.

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 solid state output section puts out 20 Watts and can be can be paired with any 8 or 16 Ohm cabinet.

SHAPE CONTROL
Orange's exclusive Shape control varies the midrange response while 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 an aggressive 'smiley face' EQ is easily achieved in the fully clockwise position, while turning fully anticlockwise 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 Crush Series amps, the headphone output includes the CabSim circuitry which faithfully emulates the sound of a mic'd Orange 412" cabinet loaded with 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.
