Orange Crush Bass 100 Combo
Manufacturer's ID: OS-CRUSH-BASS-100
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 100 watt amp has a 15” speaker gives you an active EQ section (15-20db boost & cut depending on the frequency) with parametric mids to get zone in on the frequencies you want to sculpt with. This combo has a huge amount of low end response and attitude that really impresses.
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!
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 100’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 sound on the fly.
DISCRETE OUTPUT STAGE & ANALOGUE DESIGN
At the heart of the Crush Bass 100 is its 100 Watt output stage. Using discrete circuitry, rather than ICs (integrated circuits) ensures a purer and even more forceful delivery with outstanding clarity and definition. The Crush Bass 100 houses a 15” 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 at its peak.
BALANCED OUTPUT, CABSIM HEADPHONE OUTPUT, AUX INPUT & CHROMATIC TUNER
The Crush Bass 100 features a balanced output (post EQ) for connecting to a PA for live situations. 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.
