What we say:

At A Glance

Don't let the size of the Orange Little Bass Thing 500w Bass Solid State Amp Head fool you! This is one mighty little amp head. Made to the high quality you'd expect from Orange, it carries on their tradition of industry-leading tone in a robust little package. With an Effects Loop and DI Out, you aren't limited on connectivity options, and 500 watts of power is more than enough to have you heard!

Features We Love:

Powerful EQ

With 15dB of cut and boost on offer across each of the EQ controls, you can really hone in on that special bass sound to complement your own style of playing. The parametric mid control helps you to cut through a mix with ease, be it live or in the studio.

Class A Optical Compressor

This single dial feature works absolute wonders! The sound and feel of the Optical Compressor gives the Little Bass Thing a very convincing tube-style delivery. Something you might not expect from a unit like this but it might just be good enough to fool you and the crowd!


Weighing in at just under 3kg and far smaller in size than you'd expect, if you are looking to downsize your rig without sacrificing on tone, the Little Bass Thing can help you do exactly that.

Who Is It For?

This could put a huge smile on the face of any performing bassist, regardless of the style of music. If you are tired of lugging around your bulky rig, this will solve that problem in an instant.


  • Great for those who gig regularly
  • Incredible sound
  • Balanced DI Out makes it easy to use anywhere you need it

Overall Rating 5/5 (2 reviews)

I've heard this amp live and checked out every review, article and YouTube clip. I love this amp as its super punchy, loud,louder and clear. It goes with my hugh hi watt cab beautifully well.

Its totally awesome; easy to setup and use... Sounds great... Orange still need to offer a DI level control on their bass heads - however this one is not as 'hot' as the OBI-300!
