Get ready for bone-crunching bass power in a tiny package. From Orange Amplification comes the Little Bass Thing, a fearless, featherweight bass amp head designed for modern bassists.

Legions of bass players a rely on their trusty Orange Terror head, gig after gig. The Little Bass Thing is a modified version of this wildly popular amp with a solid-state front end. Designed for maximum tone with minimum fuss, the Little Bass Thing's solid-state preamp features compression and simple but flexible 3-band EQ feeding Orange's fearsome 500-watt Class D output section, all in a diminutive chassis that weighs all of 6.5 pounds.

Simple But Effective EQ
A parametric mid control and carefully chosen bass and treble frequencies, all with 15 dB of cut/boost, ensure that you can dial in the ultimate bass sound not only accurately, but quickly too! Whether you're adding the finishing touches to the perfect tone, taming a troublesome room acoustic or crafting something really over-the-top, the Little Bass Thing does it with engineer precision and the musical simplicity you expect from an Orange bass amp.

Class A Optical Compression
The footswitchable compressor control on the Little Bass Thing's front panel gives players instant access to Orange's painstakingly developed Class A Optical Compression circuit. With its unique sidechain and a response optimised for bass guitar, this single dial provides excellent dynamic control and a warm, classic feel, at subtle or extreme settings (footswitch sold separately).

Helpful Little Extras
In addition to great tone and light weight, the Little Bass Thing features a buffered FX Loop and a studio-quality balanced D.I. output with a Ground Lift switch for eliminating any ground loop issues. There's also a -6dB input pad switch for active basses and hot pickups. With all its dynamic and tone-shaping capabilities, the Little Bass Thing also makes a great recording preamp when used without a speaker connected.
