Orange Amplification Announces OB-1K Bass Amplifier

Orange Amplification introduced the new OB-1K bass amplifier at the NAMM Show this year. The 1000-watt solid-state amplifier is inspired by bi-amping and splits the signal into two separate paths. The first side offers a tight, clean bass sound while the second features two stages of controllable gain and is rich in upper harmonics. Each channel can be toggled or combined with a footswitchable blend control.

Other features include an active three-band EQ and a DI with a ground lift. Each of the controls is labeled with Orange’s classic “Pics Only” design. It’s rack-mountable and is also available with an optional sleeve for mounting.

The Orange OB-1K will be available soon with a street price of $1,899 ($2,299 with the optional sleeve).

  2. Wow $400 for the case.

  3. For that money I’d get a GK 2001 RB and another bass

  4. for a solid state: overweighted, overpriced
