    Orange Micro Dark--any experience or opinions on it?

    So I tried one of these out-
    Orange Micro Dark

    In addition to a reverb pedal I would like a small tube amp.
    ANd this seems to fit the bill. (It weighs under 2 pounds for the head)
    I tried one out--I liked it--comparing it in my head to what I already have, to decide if it might be worth parting with a pedal or two that I never or rarely use.

    The midrange control is nice--especially as I like mid range--but even slightly cutting it was cool in some cases.
    It overdrives well, and the clean is good too.

    (This is actually a hybrid amp--there's one tube for the gain, and then solid state for the clean.)

    SO has anybody here sued one--what were your thoughts?

    This would basically be for playing at home, recording for my own enjoyment, maybe in church.

    Goodness I have no reason to SUE them!

    Seriously I have not tried these, but for that small application wouldn't a small combo amp be easier? I do like the small size and weight, if the tone passes muster.

    Sometimes my fingers are faster than my brain--or is that my brain is slower than my fingers?

    This amp head is priced so well that even if I buy a cab to go with it I am spending considerably less than what it would cost me to get a decent combo that does what this one does.
    Price isn't the only consideration--I have passed on greta deals price wise before because it was something I didn't need or want.

    This is something I do want.

    That's what I was referring to--I may have to do that or sell a couple...

    Bad timing with the long weekend and now summer--but I think I will just buy one & then see if I can sell a couple of pedals and see what I can get with that.

    Eitehr way it could generate a NPD or NAD thread...
