The Orange OB1-300 Bass Head is a Class A/B rack mountable amplifier and has its own unique sound. It also has a Bi-Amp inspired design which splits the bass signal into two paths.
Orange OB1-300 300W Bass Amplifier Head
The OB1-300 is a Bass head with a difference. For years bassists have been combining guitar and bass amps to remarkable effect, adding harmonics and layers of overdrive from a guitar amp to their core bass tone in pursuit of the ultimate live sound.
The key to the OB1's unique sound is Orange's footswitchable Blend circuit which adds 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. Punch in the Blend control to achieve anything from a transparent clean boost, to all-out filthy grind.
The OB1-300 is the 300 Watt version, sharing the same features and 2U rack dimensions as the more powerful OB1-500.
