The Crush Bass 50 Amp compact combo, inspired by Oranges flagship AD200 and OB1 bass amplifiers, 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 blend able overdrive. Like the rest of the Crush Bass range, this 50-Watt model delivers bold and punchy lows courtesy of its analogue circuitry and ported cabinet. The extremely flexible active EQ section includes a sweep able 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 our Cabsim circuitry.

Powerful Active Parametric EQ

The Crush Bass 50 Amp features an EQ circuit inspired by 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 counterclockwise) 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 cut on the bass and middle frequencies, and up to 20dB on the treble side.

Blend and Gain

Lifted straight from 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 50s 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.

Analogue Design and Ported Cabinet

The Crush Bass series delivers fat, rounded sound thanks to an all-analogue signal path. The Crush Bass 50 Amp 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 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.
