Orange Amps 50W 1x12 Bass Combo Amp (Black)

The Orange Amps Crush Bass 50 Compact Combo is a 50W compact combo amplifier combining the latest technology with age-old classic features. Inspired by Orange’s flagship AD200 and OB1 bass amplifiers, the Crush Bass 50 Compact Combo perfectly blends some of the most defining elements of each. It has the essentials of a recording amp and delivers warm, clean bass tones, vintage growl with fat low end, and blendable overdrive. Like the rest of the Crush Bass range, this 50Watt model delivers bold and punchy lows courtesy of its analog circuitry and ported cabinet.

Flexible Active EQ Section

The Orange Amps Crush Bass 50 Compact Combo features an extremely flexible active EQ section that 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 Orange Amps' Cabsim circuitry.

Powerful Active Parametric EQ

The Crush Bass 50 features an EQ circuit inspired by Orange’s prestigious 4-Stroke Series amplifiers. At its center 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 to 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 cuts on the bass and middle frequencies and up to 20dB on the treble side.

Blend and 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.

Analog Design and Ported Cabinet

The Crush Bass series delivers fat, rounded sound thanks to an all-analog signal path. The Crush Bass 50 houses a 12-inch speaker with a reflex port for an 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 and Chromatic Tuner

The headphone output features Orange’s Cabsim circuitry which emulates the response of Orange Amps’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.
