Orange’s first ever rack-mountable amplifier
The OB-1K is Orange’s first ever rack-mountable amplifier (with optional sleeve mounting available) forged by the demands of the modern bass player. Inspired by techniques such as bi-amping (running a bass guitar through bass and guitar amplifiers simultaneously) Orange has produced a stunning bass amplifier that takes care of this and much more besides.
The OB-1K splits the signal into two separate paths. One side produces a tight, clean bass sound with thunderous low end. The second side features two stages of controllable gain rich in upper harmonics. These two components can then be combined using the amplifier’s footswitchable blend control giving the player a wealth of options that range from a crystal clear clean boost to all-out filthy bass mayhem! The result is a truly brutal bass tone, which still maintains the all-important low end. This enables the bass to cut through the mix in any situation.
The OB-1K features a fully responsive, active three-band EQ. This provides the bassist full control whilst keeping the classic Orange ‘Pics Only’ design. The OB-1K also features a DI with ground lift.
