Orange Micro Terror 20watt amp head

I just got this today. I have several speaker cabinets and wanted something lite that I can connect to whichever speaker cab I'm going to use. I haven't put it to the test yet but am surprised how good this little thing sounds. It can get pretty loud to.  I was concerned I wouldn't be able to get clean sounds with it but I can. Just wondering if anyone has one of these and if they gig with it. I got it for home use only as i don't play out anymore.

    Turns out the amp has a very bad low hum when I turn up the volume high with a clean setting. Unusable for recording. Sent it back and ordered the Quilter Micro Block 45 watt pedal Amp head. Hope this one works out.

    The Quilter Micro Block is 45 watt amp is just what I was looking for. I wanted something that has a clean sound and not get dirty too quickly as you raise the gain. You have to turn the gain all the way to get some dirt but the dirty sound is not so good but I'm not using it for that anyway and it gets loud to. The Micro Terror was more for a dirt sound. Anyway just an FYI for anyone who may be looking for something like this. Not many of the Youtube video's do this amp justice.

    If you want ample clean headroom most Orange amps aren’t the thing to be choosing, especially the lower-powered ones. The 50 or even 30+ watt valve amps can do a decently loud clean but not so much the 15 watt ones other perhaps than the Rocker 15 combo.

    On the other hand, if you want to get the amp’s power stage working hard without being told to turn down all the time small Orange valve amps are worth investigating. Even at 15 watts they can cope with drummers and small gigs easily, especially of matched with a sensitive speaker like a Vintage 30 that pushes out a lot of volume per watt. They do have the distinctive Orange sound as well, but at more managable volume levels that the old 1970s Orange/Matamp 120 and 60 watt heads which were insanely loud and needed to be cranked a bit to get the best out of them.

    Sonar Platinum 64bit, Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit, I7 3770K Ivybridge, 16GB Ram, Gigabyte Z77-D3H m/board,
    ATI 7750 graphics+ 1GB RAM, 2xIntel 520 series 220GB SSDs, 1 TB Samsung F3 + 1 TB WD HDDs, Seasonic fanless 460W psu, RME Fireface UFX, Focusrite Octopre.
    Assorted real synths, guitars, mandolins, diatonic accordions, percussion, fx and other stuff.
