[NAMM] Orange debuts 4 Stroke bass amps
Orange presents the 4 Stroke 300 & 500, two complete bass amp heads in a 2U rackmountable format.
With Class A/B output and a new discrete Class A input buffer stage, these amps are announced to deliver a sound both powerful and clear, offering full-bodied tones that remain composed and expressive across the sonic spectrum.
The centrepiece of the 4 Stroke Series is the extensive 4-band parametric EQ network, offering extended control over the tone and allowing players to sculpt their signature sound in any environment. The finely tuned Q curves of the frequency dials aim at achieving the perfect balance between precision and usability, while each band can be controlled with up to 18dB of cut and boost.
The 4 Stroke’s footswitchable on-board compression tracks and maintains the dynamics of the performer for a fat, articulate sound with tons of depth. It is available in either 300 or 500 Watt versions, with both including the usual essential features such as line-level and balanced outputs, plus a pair of parallel speaker outputs. Its Class A/B nature means it can also be run without a speaker load - a great asset for direct recording.
MSRP and release date to be announced. The 4 Stroke 300 & 500 bass amp heads and other new products by Orange Amplification can be seen at the NAMM at Booth# 4890, Hall C.
