Orange Terror Bass 500 Amp - £300

Very Good condition amp, works perfectly. I've owned this for several years and it's had minimal use, as most of the time I play with in-ear monitors and have no need of an amp. This has been kept in the house in storage and comes out for 1 gig each Summer. Time to move on so I can re-invest in something I'll get more use out of.

Orange Website: "Maintaining the size of the original Tiny Terror, the Terror Bass is a 500 watt hybrid amplifier with a Class D solid state power section and the same preamp as our all-valve AD200B UK bass amp.

With the same great looks as the other Terror series guitar amps, and a rugged construction that will stand up to the road, bass players can now become a part of the famed “Tiny Terror Club.”

Orange 2x12 600W Isobaric Cab - £350

Very good condition. Cosmetic wear and tear visible in the photos, but again this cab has been used rarely and spends most of the time in the house locked in a cupboard. Perfect working order and packs a punch for such a small package.

Orange Website: "The revolutionary Orange SmartPower Bass Cabinets are ultra portable yet extremely powerful. The SP212 feature a ported Isobaric cabinet design and use lightweight Neodymium speakers.

Both speakers in the SP212 are front-facing, one behind the other. The space between the front speaker’s magnet and the rear speaker’s cone is airtight, ensuring that both speakers vibrate in conjunction with one another, thus keeping them in phase.

They may be small, but SmartPower bass cabs sound huge.

The Terror Bass gives 500w into 4 ohms, how much into 8 ohms? 

According to Orange (Terror maual pdf extract ...), 500w ...

I don't know why more amp manufacturers don't give the option of switching the impedance from 4 to 8 ohms like Orange do, seems like a no brainer to me.....

GLWTS.

Having looked at the circuit diagramme, I can't see how this 'impedance switch' works; it's certainly not in the o/p stage. It seems to be affecting the input limiter in some way. Other sites suggest  that the amp actually delivers 250w at 8 ohms, which would be more like other similar designs. Maybe the 4/8 switch 'boosts' the input to compensate..? It would need a 'real world' test, with 'scopes and the like, to really know what happens. I think that I would plump for prudence, and judge more by what it actually sounds like in one's own situation, rather than try to understand the dodgy correlation between numbers and music.
Hope this helps (but it may not...).

I have no idea on the technicalities I’m afraid, but using an 8ohm cab with it I can tell you that is has plenty of punch and I have never needed more from it. Annually use it at a festival in a tent for 7,000 and has always given enough. I actually never ride it above about 40% as it feeds into other stage mics that they’re not too keen on when recording a live album. 🙂

I bought my Terror from @Stealth himself and can emphatically report these are wonderful amps. The magic ohm switch works, at least I haven't noticed a drop when switching between 8 or 4 ohm cabs. If you're considering buying this I happily recommend it.

      So I am pondering on maybe getting myself a proper bass amp here coming the 1st of November, next month, since I am currently just using the poweramp section of my 160W Peavey Solo Special 112 guitar combo, with the build in 12" guitar speaker unit disconnected and the amp instead hooked up with a 4Ohm, 400W, SWR Triad I bass cab with 1x15 + 1x10" + tweeter horn, and even if I actually really like that tone that gives me I just absolutely love the classic Trace Elliot tone, once having owned a 1x15" 130W GP7SM combo that I was very very fond of, and kind of regret selling.
       
      So the question is, should I get the extremely tiny and light weight, relatively new, 200W Trace Elliot ELF amp head, which I will buy from brand new, or get the used, relatively old, and quite heavy, 300W GP7SM amp head, that is currently for sale for just about the same price as I can get a new ELF?
       
      I would appreciate arguments for and against, beside the obvious advantages the ELF got size and weight wise, making it extremely easy to transport, unlike the old GP7SM head, that I know will be quite heavy.
      Like would there be any obvious noticeable difference in the tone they respectively produce when set flat and not using the pre-shape of the GP7SM head (which I will definitely not be using anyway, hate mid scooped tones).
      What would you chose and why?
      And what would I lose getting one over the other, beside the obvious warranty, ease of transportation, less EQ tweaking options, lack of pre-shape functions (which, as said, I won't have any use for anyway), and 100W less power, of the ELF?
       
      Or should I rather, since I am actually quite satisfied with the tone I get now from the Peavey, which also got plenty of enough power for my use, forget about the temptation of getting a Trace Elliot amp in my possession again, and instead use my money on some new effect pedals that I also have cravings for?

      I am of course talking about pictures of those of your basses made in China.
       
      Here's my 28,6" scale Ibanez GSRM20 Mikro Bass, out of the December 2010 Chinese production, before they moved the production to Indonesia, which is actually my main bass, currently tuned in G1 standard tuning, as in 3 half steps above E standard 4 string bass tuning, or 2 half steps bellow A standard baritone guitar tuning, strung with a gauge .090 bass string and 3 guitar strings, threaded through the cut off ball ends of a set of bass strings, of the gauges .068 - .052 - .038, equipped with a DiMarzio Model P, P pickup, wired directly to the output jack socket, and the J pickup from the previously installed P/J EMG Geezer Butler set still sitting there, though disconnected and lowered considerably :

      Hi all, I'm selling my Alembic MK Signature Deluxe with Coco Bolo top, so here is little about the bass.
      Bass has no scratch, no belt buckle scratch, it's almost as brand new, as you can see from pics.
      Scale: 34"
      Fingerboard: Ebony with abalone
      Top: coco Bolo
      Back: Coco Bolo
      Body: Mahogany with maple and purplehearth as accent woods
      Neck: Maple with Purple Hearth stringers
      Finish: clean gloss with satin finish on the neck
      weight: 5.7 kg (with 5 9v batteries that goes into the bass, 4x for LED)
      Electronics: volume, pan, 2x filters, 2x q switches, 1x LED on/off, 1/4" mono output.
      LEDs are amber and red (check pictures)
      Bass was done in 2015, so it has 2+3 machine heads.
      Bass has original case, papers, everything. New one like this is 17.600 dollars, you can check here on Alembic site my bass is Sig Dlx Coco Bolo.
      This is I think only signature bass in EU that is available with this price. For any questions you can contact me. Here are some pic that justify the whole thing, other pics you can see on my dropbox:
      https://www.dropbox.com/sh/huwja8inhg3pt5e/AAAZ_-yhsAWuU_Zi-cx5C75fa?dl=0
       
      Price says 6000 pounds but it's actually 6500 euros, just conversion is different every day.
       
      Also check my feedback page:
