Designed to meet the demands of the modern bass player the 4 Stroke 300 bass guitar head has everything you need and nothing you don't. All analogue circuitry delivers powerful class AB amp tone that remains crystal clean and expressive all the way through without becoming flat or sterile.
The 4 Stroke Series Bass Amplifiers from Orange Amps are new for 2016.
The centrepiece of these amps is the uncompromising tone stack which allows for an unparalleled level of control over the EQ without the fussiness that plagues so many. The active four-band parametric EQ covers an enormous range and opens up limitless possibilities. Whether you need to sculpt your signature sound, bring out the character of your instrument or combat troublesome acoustic environments, the 4 Stroke deals with all comers in an instant. For the finishing touch, our proprietary Class A compression circuit tracks seamlessly, adding further punch and fatness. On the rear, you’ll find the usual essentials: two parallel speaker outputs (min. total load 4 Ohms), plus balanced and line level outputs. Available in 300W and 500W configurations, the 4 Stroke Series is the perfect tool for the contemporary bassist – powerful, usable, musical.
Full control over the entire sound spectrum – not just the mids. Featuring four independent frequency controls, each with up to 18dB of cut or boost, the 4 Stroke’s Q curves have been engineered to achieve the perfect balance between precision and usability. The intuitive layout is typically Orange – “Do much more, with much less.” With no pre-defined contour or filter switches, the ability to fine tune your sound has never been more comprehensive. Rather than a common hard limiter, the 4 Stroke’s Class A compressor design maintains the transients of the input signal for a dynamic playing response. The carefully developed sidechain has a fattening effect on the core tone at lower compression settings, whilst increasing the amount of compression adds a springy character to the attack, great for heavy thumb work. With just a simple level control (much like many classic studio units), the compression can also be engaged or defeated remotely with the optional FS-1 footswitch.
