    The quintessential rock bass amp

    Orange AD200B MKIIIPublished on 10/22/14 at 08:01
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    AD 200 is a low all-tube amp that delivers 400 Watts.
    Two tickets available: one for active basses and one for passive.

    UTILIZATION

    On the front you will find the basics: a band eq (treble, middle, bass) and a master's and a gain adjustment. Nothing else, and this is perfect!
    At the rear, two 4 ohms outputs (for connecting two speakers, for example) and 8 ohms.
    The setup is disarmingly simple, you simply plug in and go: no matter the settings, you can leave all the knobs at noon, AD 200 reacts immediately. Its strong point is to recreate as closely as possible the way you play, the finger or pick, it all depends on you. Your right hand and play your bass model will make all…

    The setup is disarmingly simple, you simply plug in and go: no matter the settings, you can leave all the knobs at noon, AD 200 reacts immediately. Its strong point is to recreate as closely as possible the way you play, the finger or pick, it all depends on you. Your right hand and play your bass model will make all the difference. Where Ampeg or Ashdown necessary by pronounced sounds, AD 200 allows you to get YOUR sound.

    SOUNDS

    For me, this is the perfect amp, the Orange quality is undeniable.
    I play a Fender Jazz Bass American Standard and it has never sounded better than in this gem. The group in which I play hardcore being typed, I gain more boosts the master to cruncher slightly and it sounds great! Attacks are all pick the sound, the amp simply spit out calmly and perfectly the sound of the bass and my game.
    I barely touched the eq knobs are almost all my noon.
    I just use a tuner TU 3 and MXR M80, to boost the mids and use the distortion.
    The amp is plugged into an Orange 4X10 and it enough for me to concerts; add the 1x15 below and you will shake stadiums.
    One could blame him for not having a clean sound identity (such as a Ampeg or Ashdown, for example) but that is precisely what makes the interest in my opinion.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Simplicity, sound quality and durability are the watchwords.
    The Orange AD 200 is beautiful, sturdy, well built, easy to use and sounds like you want. I use it for almost a year and I do never part.

    The quality / price is fair; Certainly, this amp is expensive, but that's the price of quality. You will not buy a Porshe for the price of a Clio.

    Only downside: weight; you'll feel like lifting your car every time you operate it, but keep in mind that the sound comes out of the woodwork (very thick in Orange) and two huge transformers that equip.

    For me it is the purchase of a lifetime.

    Good all-tube head

    Bass Amp any lamp

    Not too many settings (volume, bass, mid, treble, master) when this branch and it sounds why would we need?

    Hp output is only Jack, no spickon it's a shame I find Hp jack cables are still less reliable, I burnt my power tubes because of a defective cable Hp.

    UTILIZATION

    I used this amp with an Ampeg 4x10 for bass. It was very good.

    This is very good for passive electric bass. I've also used for bass with an analog synth (yamaha CS-5) and there it was excellent!

    No need to book.

    I had the opportunity to play different Heads Ampeg tube when the displacement allowed us to take our back line. I think it's all good amps both have good heat in the bass.…

    No need to book.

    I had the opportunity to play different Heads Ampeg tube when the displacement allowed us to take our back line. I think it's all good amps both have good heat in the bass. I have a slight preference for the color orange anyway. It may be a bit more distinctive, a bit less polyvalant but suddenly more personality can be.

    Another advantage for the orange, it is less heavy (already you got hurt to have friends when you have to unload the truck ...)

    For the bass, I also love the Gallien Krueger MB150S/112 has a big advantage: it is very small.

    SOUNDS

    Finding a good sound with this amp is easy, simply connect a quality instrument and put on a good speaker.

    The volume control allows you to play nice ment on the warmth of the sound, the Equal doing its job.

    This amp is still powerful and in contexts that do not play too hard too, between 2 and 2.2 on the master it's still a big gap so it is not always easy to adjust. When you can play a stronger can he provides a physical sensation very nice bass that can do a good job to support and take off the other comics.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used this amp for 5 or 6 years, I thought I would keep them for life but I had to stop the zic for a time because it put my privacy too loose.

    I sold it for that in this job when you're professional you touch unemployment benefits and when you're unemployed you're at RSA ...

    If I had to rock, electro, reggae, and I had the tunes, I would buy this amp. For bass in a more acoustic context I would to Gallien Krueger for the price and weight.
