POWERFUL ACTIVE PARAMETRIC EQ
The Crush Bass 100 features an EQ circuit inspired by Orange’s prestigious 4 Stroke Series amplifiers. At its centre is a parametric mid band. This presents players with a much greater degree of regulate over the sound than a traditional EQ, letting them vary the frequencies they would like hear. The mid band covers a variety, sweeping from 300Hz (fully anti-clockwise) to 2.7kHz (fully clockwise), meaning this amp may also 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 & GAIN
Lifted straight from the preferred OB1 Series amps, the Blend and Gain controls are a nod to the many bass players who experiment with guitar and bass amps concurrently. 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 100’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 may also be engaged remotely with the optional FS-1 footswitch, ideal for fattening your sound on the fly.
DISCRETE OUTPUT STAGE & ANALOGUE DESIGN
At the heart of the Crush Bass 100 is its 100 Watt output stage. The use of discrete circuitry, fairly than ICs (integrated circuits) ensures a purer and even more forceful delivery with outstanding clarity and definition. The Crush Bass 100 houses a 15″ speaker with a reflex port for improved low end response. The buffered effects loop has been engineered for maximum transparency, ensuring your pedal arsenal will perform at its peak.
