Orange Amplification Introduce The Little Bass Thing

Orange Amplifications Introduce The Little Bass Thing

Orange Amplification is delighted to introduce the Little Bass Thing. A straightforward, lightweight bass amp, designed with the modern bass player in mind. The amp is 500W’s of Class D muscle, combined with a powerful, solid state pre-amp, packed snugly into a diminutive 3KG package. This tiny toolbox amplifier delivers maximum tone with minimum fuss.

The Little Bass Thing features a sweep-able parametric mid control for simple and effective EQ. This is augmented by carefully chosen bass and treble frequencies combined with 15dB of boost to ensure the ultimate bass sound can be dialed in accurately and quickly. With this powerhouse of an amp, bass players can easily add the finishing touches to their sound with simple, engineered precision characteristic of all Orange Amps.

The amp’s built-in Class A Optical Compression circuit, can be controlled by a foot switch (sold separately) or from the front panel. This single dial has a unique sidechain and a response that has been optimized for a bass guitar. It gives the Little Bass Thing excellent dynamic control and a warm, classic feel at subtle or extreme settings. The Class A Optical Compression circuit is a neutrally voiced pre-amp with precise EQ.

The Little Bass Thing also features a buffered FX Loop and studio-quality, balanced D.I. output with a Ground Lift switch to help remove any ground loop issues. There is also a -6dB input pad switch for active basses and hot pickups.

Bass players seeking a small, simple rig without compromising on sound or volume need to take a look at the Little Bass Thing. The best things come in small packages.
