"Incredible amplifier..."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This amplifier is fantastic. I use it into an Orange 410 Cab. Bass response is smooth as glass but as you crank it louder the treble gets that growl but still keeps the smooth undistorted bass as if it's bi-amped into another amp and cab. I use a handbuilt (by me) Thunderbird Bass, a Hofner CT Beatle Bass, and a Samick bass with Fender PJ vintage pickups. Running the Beatle Bass into an Orange OB-1 500 is something you need to hear to believe... it sounds like the bass in 'Come Together' AND 'Sgt Peppers..' I went with the 500w instead of the 300w because 'a wee bit more..' is never a bad thing. It's a two rack space amp...don't put it in a two rack space case because it runs a wee hot. The amp has a large fan so I use a 3space case with the amp on the bottom and a 1 space slotted vent plate above the amp. It looks and sounds cooler than cool.... Hugs...Nyms
