Manufacturer's ID: OS-CRUSH-BASS-50
What we say:
Orange bring the same analogue, no frills-great tone sensibility of their Crush guitar amps to this series of Bass practice amps. Orange have managed to perfect that age-old alchemy of packing a full, mature bass tone into a small practice amp-sized combo.
This 50 watt amp gives you an active EQ section with parametric mids to get zone in on the frequencies you want to sculpt with. This larger model also give you Gain and Blend controls that work together and interact to ape the use of two different amps blended together for optimum results. This can be switched in via footswitch too.
Instead of endless digital FX, Orange fill this amp with useful features like a chromatic tuner, a headphone out with their CabSim amp simulation for very realistic headphones/DI sound and most importantly, tone and feel that sounds professional and high quality: the way it should be!
Like the rest of the Crush Bass range, this 50 Watt model delivers bold and punchy lows courtesy of its analogue circuitry and ported cabinetry. The extremely flexible active EQ section includes a sweepable parametric mid band, allowing players to shape their signature sound without limitations. For even more versatility, the interactive Gain and Blend controls are primed for creating enormous ‘bi-amped’-style tones with ease, adding extra harmonics and variable levels of grit to the core bass tone. They can also be switched in remotely using the optional footswitch. Other handy features include a buffered effects loop, integrated tuner, aux. input and a headphone output with our Cabsim circuitry.
POWERFUL ACTIVE PARAMETRIC EQ
The Crush Bass 50 features an EQ circuit inspired by our prestigious 4 Stroke Series amplifiers. At its centre is a parametric mid band. This presents players with a much greater degree of control over the sound than a traditional EQ, allowing them to vary the frequencies they want hear. The mid band covers a wide range, sweeping from 300Hz (fully counter-clockwise) to 2.7kHz (fully clockwise), meaning this amp can be fine tuned to suit any musical style. The active circuitry allows for up to 15dB of boost or cut on the bass and middle frequencies, and up to20dB on the treble side.
BLEND & GAIN
Lifted straight from our popular OB1 Series amps, the Blend and Gain controls are a nod to the many bass players who experiment with guitar and bass amps simultaneously. In this ‘bi-amped’ setup, layers of harmonics and distortion from the guitar amp are blended with the core bass tone to create the ultimate full-range live sound. The Crush Bass 50’s Gain and Blend controls create the same effect in a single package, adding extra bite and crispness to the tone at lower gain settings, right up to all-out filth with the dials cranked. These controls can also be engaged remotely with the optional FS-1 footswitch, ideal for fattening your tone on the fly.
ANALOGUE DESIGN & PORTED CABINET
The Crush Bass series delivers fat, rounded sound thanks to an all analogue signal path. The Crush Bass 50 houses a 12” speaker with a reflex port for improved low-end response. The buffered effects loop has been engineered for maximum transparency, ensuring your pedal arsenal will perform to its peak.
CABSIM HEADPHONE OUTPUT, AUX INPUT & CHROMATIC TUNER
The headphone output features our Cabsim circuitry which emulates the response of our stage-ready OBC bass speaker cabinets during silent practice. This signal can also be sent to a console for seriously authentic direct recording. The Aux. Input allows for connecting external audio sources for backing tracks whilst the handy onboard tuner makes for quick tune-ups between jams.
