Yesterday, I got a new amp. Sweetwater had a sale going on the Orange Micro Terror amps at $200. I've been looking at these for awhile. They are small lunch box style amps with a 12AX7 preamp tube and Solid State power. They come in 2 forms, the Orange Micro Terror in White and Orange colors or the Orange Dark Micro in Black and Orange colors. The White one is a little mild and the Dark one is wild. I got the Dark one and got it for $169 because it was a Demo.

I plugged it into my 120watt capable speaker cab in my carport/shop and the whole block got to rock with me. LOL this small amp is 20watts and drives big speakers without issue at high volume. It has a volume knob, shape knob that's really a tone and a gain knob. the back has a output jack for speaker of choice and a FX Loop.

The Headphone jack is useful too.

I have both the Micro and the Dark version. The icing on the cake for the Dark version is the effects loop. Now I have a 20 power amp that I can feed my little homemade circuits to. Great bang for the buck, and lots of used ones available.

I have both light and dark, quality amps for sure.  I like to turn them on with volume at 12o'clock and leave them on for an hour before playing to warm up the tube.  Difference is night and day.

It's great if it's just you, the guitar, the amp and a speaker, but I find it a tone sucker for pedals especially fuzz and overdrives. Really switches my lion into a kitty cat.  But the amp itself has loads of tone to play with and makes my underwound pickups gigantic and clear.  I just can't jam with my wah and Bum Fuzz.

However, I have two Hotone amps, a British Invasion and a Freeze B. These guys work well with pedals.  I had the Micro side by side with these amps trying to figure the tone sucking but could not pinpoint it.

Back in the day, we just plugged one or two pedals into the guitar jack and went for it like you do on the regular amp. It must be the effect loop circuit.
It has no problem driving big speakers and your right about used ones coming up at pawnshops, flea markets and FB Marketplace now and then. I just bought it because it was on sale and I have credit at Sweetwater, which can be a dangerous thing. LOL
