Orange Amplifiers OB1-500 500W Analog Bass Amp Head - 47667 by Orange Amplifiers

Item description: This Amps and Effects Amplifiers product is by Orange Amplifiers - For years bassists have been combining guitar and bass amps to remarkable effect, adding harmonics and layers of overdrive from guitar amps to their core bass tone in pursuit of the ultimate live sound. This bi-amp trend got the Orange engineers thinking, Why drag two amps to the show when you could take just one? The result is the Orange OB1-500 500W rack-mountable bass head, which takes care of this and much more. There is also a 300W version, for those who don't need quite as much punch.<BR/><BR/>The key to the OB1' unique sound is Orange's footswitchable Blend circuit, which adds a veneer of controllable gain and increased harmonic content to the upper registers of the input signal. The lower frequencies and clean signal are left alone, staying warm and clear just as they would be in a bi-amped setup. Depending on where the Gain and Blend controls are set, the possibilities are limitless. Punch in the Blend control to achieve anything from a transparent clean boost, to all-out filthy grind, and everywhere in between.<BR/><BR/><strong>Bi-Amped Design</strong><BR/>The OB1 splits the input instrument signal into two separate paths. One side amplifies the clean signal, with all the clarity you would expect from Orange. The other adds up to two stages of distortion to the upper harmonics only, controllable via the amp' Gain knob. These two elements are combined using the amplifier' Blend control, which adjusts the mix between clean and dirty. The Blend control can then be remotely engaged or defeated using the optional footswitch.<BR/><BR/>The Gain and Blend' range allows for almost anything, from a subtle level boost to cut through the mix, added girth and presence at moderate settings to fatten up chorus passages, to fully saturated savagery at the extremes. However you dial it, the OB1 always maintains the critical low end definition, right the way up to the most offensive settings!<BR/><BR/><strong>Active EQ</strong><BR/>The OB1' highly responsive active<ul><li>Power: 500W</li><li>Single channel</li><li>Controls: active/passive switch, gain, blend, 3-band EQ, volume, line output</li><li>Impedance: 1x8 ohm, 2x8 ohm, 1x4 ohm</li><li>Outputs: Speakon; 1/4&quot; out</li><li>Balanced direct output</li><li>2U rack-mountable size</li><li>Dimensi...
