ROCKER15TERROR

Online

Capable of 15, 7, 1 or 0.5 Watts of output the Rocker 15 Terror is the head only version of the enormously popular Rocker 15 Combo that moves seamlessly from the home, to the studio, to the stage. Finally, a small, two channel, bedroom-friendly all-valve amp that you can legitimately gig!

With the Rocker 15 Terror set wide open, smaller venues are comfortably taken care of. Thanks to the same beefy transformers as the combo version, the Rocker 15 Terror has a remarkably potent delivery which takes full advantage of its EL84 output section. Even when scaling back the power, the amp's tone stays fat and full, oozing warm valve compression and saturation without disturbing the neighbours.

Clever options aside, the Rocker 15 Terror has real character - a twin channel design with a twist. The Natural channel is a purist's dream with just a single knob: Volume. Finely balanced and supremely playable, this channel is perfectly voiced to bring out the 'natural' sound of the instrument under your fingers (or the pedals under your feet). The 'Dirty' channel is a more familiar affair with controls for Gain, Volume and a three band EQ section. Both channels are very sensitive to touch and playing dynamics, making Rocker 15 Terror very versatile despite its straight forward, player-friendly layout.

The amp also features a proper valve driven effects loop for total purity from input to output. So, whether you need a rig for low-volume practising, recording, or to be heard on the club circuit, the shape-shifting Rocker 15 Terror will show itself to be the amp for every occasion.

Great amp. Vintage voiced. One of the best sounding Orange amps and easily the best low wattage amp for the money. Tons of features.

I purchased one shortly after they were released along with a PPC212OB because Rocker 15 tone in a lunchbox head? Yes, please. This amp has been an absolute joy to play. The styles of music that this amp can cover is very broad. I mainly play Metal and have found that my sweet spot has been with the Gain knob at 3 o'clock with a TS Mini kicked on, giving me high gain tone without the over saturation of a high gain head. I could have gone with the Brent Hinds Terror but after demoing both, I found that the Brent Hinds Terror's gain would become very unwieldly after about the 1 o'clock position, whereas the Rocker 15's would stay tightly controlled. The main difference between the two is in the Gain control and I personally prefer the Rocker 15's over the Brent Hinds. The Natural channel is just a straightforward volume knob and sounds great. You'll be controlling your tone through your guitar's pickup switch, tone knob and volume. It takes some getting used to, but, it allows you to really feel out your guitar. The Dirty channel is where all the tonal options are as the EQ isn't global. However, the Bass, Mid and Treble controls aren't going to drastically change your tone depending on how you set them. They're more for refinement of the sound rather than complete tone shaping. The difference between the controls being rolled all the way off and all the way on isn't as drastic as on something like a 6505 or Rectifier head. To dial in this amp, you need to make adjustments to the EQ one tick at a time, play it for a while, feel it out and repeat. There's a ton of low end from the EL84s so, for me, this amp sounds best with the Bass knob around 9 o'clock. Even then, there's still too much low end for the style of music I play. However, throw a tube screamer into the front of this amp and that low end tightens up and the overall sound is incredible. All of that being said, there are 3 main drawbacks to these amps. 1. No MIDI. 2. No included footswitch for channel switching 3. The Mid knob needs to be cranked in order to cut through and be heard live or in a mix. Ade Elmsley (Orange amp designer) is notorious for making Orange amps sound best when the power section is cranked, so it makes sense that if you want to be heard when playing an Orange, you need to be LOUD. Overall though, this amp is such an awesome piece of gear to own and sounds fantastic. If you buy one, you won't be disappointed.

Let's face it - most people aren't gigging. This amp is awesome when you need great tones but at a reasonable volume. When you're able to kick it up a notch - no problem! The price is a mistake.

Picked this up from L&M in Winnipeg about a month ago now and have to say I'm blown away by this amp. The range of tones you can get through it is astonishing. From clean to dirty it sounds great. The natural channel breaks up early with humbuckers but stays cleaner much longer with single coils. The Bedroom mode switch is perfect for practicing when my girlfriend is watching tv or sleeping. I bought a PPC112 with it but kinda wish i would've got the 212 for a more room filling sound. I doubt I'll ever get rid of this amp but if I do itll be for a Rockerverb 50. Special thanks to Mike at the Wall St location for all his help.

I think I must of been the first one to order one of these from LM. It took a bit to get it, but very happy with the unit. I have it plugged in to a PPC112 cabinet. I have the unit set to bedroom mode at half and it's great in my studio room. I sold my fender bass breaker 15 combo to get this one, and even though I liked the fender, there was something missing that I couldn't put my finger on. The Rocker 15 just sounds right. As soon as I heard it, I knew I loved it.
