Orange Amplification Announces the Little Bass Thing Amplifier
Orange Amplification is gearing up for the 2020 Winter NAMM Show by unveiling The Little Bass Thing, a 500-watt Class D bass amp “designed with the modern bass player in mind.” The amp, which has a solid-state preamp, weighs in at just 6.5 pounds.
Orange also calls the amp straightforward with a simple control layout. It has a three-band EQ with a sweepable parametric mid control. It also has an optical compression circuit built-in. “This single-dial has a unique sidechain and a response that has been optimized for a bass guitar. It gives the Little Bass Thing excellent dynamic control and a warm, classic feel at subtle or extreme settings. The Class A Optical Compression circuit is a neutrally voiced pre-amp with precise EQ,” they write.
Other features include a buffered FX Loop, a DI output with ground lift, and a -6dB input pad. It will be available soon with a street price of $699.99.
