Tones from the heavy to clean The Dark series of amplifiers make no secret that they're engineered for high-gain heavy metal. But even with the few knobs on the front panel, you'll be able to quickly dial in a large variety of tones from metal grind to spanky cleans. And if the huge range of tones available aren't enough, the Micro Dark will work with most guitar speaker cabinets, allowing you to fine-tune your tone. Compact and convenient There simply aren't many other amplifier heads this small that can keep up with the Micro Dark's 12AX7-driven tones and 20 watts of power. At under three pounds, the Micro Dark amplifier head is a cinch to transport to any recording session, rehearsal, or gig. And its diminutive size makes it an easy fit in any room, no matter how tight the space may be. Easy-to-navigate controls The 3-knob control panel makes pulling great sounds out of your Orange Micro Dark easy. It features pots for volume, gain, and shape. The shape control is the same used on the other Dark series of amplifiers, going from scooped grind on one side of the dial to a more classic mid-focused tone on the other. Want even more tonal options? The Micro Dark boasts a buffered effects loop in the back for patching in your favorite time-based effects. And the single input and single speaker out streamlines your setup so you're getting great tone in no time.
