Orange Brent Hinds Terror Head
Manufacturer's ID: BRENT-HINDS-TERROR
What we say:
Mastodon's lead guitarist and co-lead vocalist is a player who really bridges the gap between classic metal soloist and modern math/sludge riffmeister with a strong Frank Zappa influence! His horror and mythology-influenced worldview informs his twisted, bruised-and-beautiful style and he has used Orange amps for years now to achieve the edgy tones Mastodon require for their behemoth sound. Orange have now celebrated the mutual association with this Brent Hinds signature Terror amp head!
This two channel terror has a re-approached and tweaked gain stage that refocusses the low end (Mastodon's low E string frequently becomes a Low A string!) and fattens up the more you wind the volume. This means you can have lots of brightness at lower levels, giving you options when recording. The gain is as monstrous as you'd expect: thick and textured with sustain and character. It's an excellent sounding head.
You can run this at its full 15 watts or switch it back to 7, 1 or even half a watt! There is an effects loop in the back and a custom graphic on the front based on Hinds' forehead tattoo.
Unleash the beast with the man who knows them best: Brent Hinds.
A TRUE CHANNEL SWITCHING TERROR
With its own voice and character the Brent Hinds Terror is its own beast. Designed in collaboration with Mastodon’s Brent Hinds, the amp features two channels and a new gain structure that makes it a completely unique Terror.
The single control on the natural channel has been redesigned with more bottom end but retains the finely balanced and highly playable character of the Rocker series. The dirty channel has a different 3 stage gain structure. It’s brighter at lower gain levels and fattens up the more you dial the gain in. The new gain structure also means that the gain comes in more quickly.
Power switching options of 0.5, 1, 7 or 15 Watts make it perfect for bedroom, studio, and stage. Using the beefy Terror transformers, theBrent Hinds Terror is able to take full advantage of the EL84 output section, giving players the ability to create warm valve compression and saturation at neighbour friendly volume.
