Orange OB1-500

RobinSYG, 15.06.2015
After eternally working months came finally the hotly expected order with the brand new OB1-500 of orange.
Well packaged and well delivered. Thanks Thomann!
The amp makes a very valuable impression, appears clear and self-explanatory.

First test. Trace Elliot 4x10 from the early 80s and Fender P-Bass.
I have to say that I was on good terms, but what came to my ears was really amazing! Already at 12 o'clock position and without gain the amp acts balanced and grown. 3-band EQ works in the right frequencies and makes sound adjustment child's play. With mixed Zerre comes a lot of life in the sound. Everything very much to my taste.

Second test. Direct comparison with AD200 and 4x10 from Orange.
Also over the Orangebox is a super sound guaranteed. A bit more rattling in the high middle, but you can do well. Compared to the AD200, the OB1-500 does not have so much flaw depth. So as if a thin cloth is in front of the box. For me it is totally ok, if the price, the weight and the existing DI-Out with. With the gain control, the amp pulls the ace out of the sleeve.

Livetest 2x15 Own construction in the case from the 90s with EV speakers.
The trial tests have made me very satisfied. So I decided to use my Ampeg SVT-7 pro, which I have worked for good results with a SansAmp, from my rack and to replace both with the OB1. Live is the mute to vote something. Otherwise the amp is simply convincing and especially very loud !! I had maximum volume at the second stroke. That at an outdoor festival! (Perhaps the effect of OB1 with 500 watts like terror bass with 1000 watts, due to the different end stage concepts?)

Conclusion
The amp is due to the few features, which work super good, surely something for purists! Who likes the super-angry orange sound will love this amp. OB1 must somehow think of old Acoustic systems. The 300 watt version would certainly enough, but I'm freshly in love and will not separate so quickly =)

Bi-amp with a single publication

taddeomaiden, 01.09.2015
The head is very intuitive, with few controls but very sensitive. The great advantage it offers is that of the bi-amp, or keep clean low frequencies and add an overdrive, which resembles the tube saturation, high. This objective was successfully achieved, without taking the opportunity to still have a clean sound, although colored as in all Orange amplifiers. The amount of overdrive can be selected with the gain knob and mixed with the clean sound through the blend knob.
The equalization controls are not "tone stack", that is to say with an already set equalization curve, but respond to the more intuitive cut / boost, with the flat in a central location for all 3 and the knobs.
