Orange makes the best bass amps out there. Its their natural, warm, full, punchy sound and its unique tone, it doesn't matter if you play with fingers, pick, effects or clean, it can take all of it. Whatever effect you put on it..it sounds just right, just like that fx was imagined to sound like, as for clean tone, with a fresh set of strings there is no better sound you can get. Orange is known for its leading valve(tube) series, but one should never underrestimate these smaller solid state amps. It is way too loud for the house, it can really shake the floor around it, and its perfect for a small home studio(it is branded as being studio amp, not just practice), you can also use it for a small acoustic gigs or a smaller electric gig with electronic drums. Unlike many sub 50 amps i tried in the store, this was the first one to actually sound like a bass amp, and not like a shallow bucket. Featured with line out, and speaker out, you might actually play a bar gig(with a proper speakers and PA). Two inputs, high(for passive) and low(for active basses), and headphones out. Standard Orange controlls, master volume, gain, and three band eq(treble, middle and bass). 35 watts and a 12 inch speaker.
