Good Things Come In Small Packages
As the name suggests, the Little Bass Thing is a no-nonsense, featherweight bass amplifier, aimed squarely at the modern player. 500W of Class D muscle coupled with a hugely powerful solid-state preamp, all in a diminutive 3Kg package, mean this tiny toolbox delivers maximum tone with minimum fuss.
Simple But Effective EQ
A parametric mid control and carefully chosen bass and treble frequencies, all with 15 dB of cut/boost, ensure that you can dial in the ultimate bass sound not only accurately, but quickly too! Whether you’re adding the finishing touches to the perfect tone, taming a troublesome room acoustic or crafting something really over-the-top, the Little Bass Thing does it with engineer precision and the musical simplicity you expect from an Orange bass amp.
Class A Optical Compression
The footswitchable compressor control on the Little Bass Thing’s front panel gives players instant access to Orange’s painstakingly developed Class A Optical Compression circuit. With its unique sidechain and a response optimised for bass guitar, this single dial provides excellent dynamic control and a warm, classic feel, at subtle or extreme settings (footswitch sold separately).
Helpful Little Extras
In addition to great tone and light weight, the Little Bass Thing features a buffered FX Loop and a studio-quality balanced D.I. output with a Ground Lift switch for eliminating any ground loop issues. There’s also a -6dB input pad switch for active basses and hot pickups. With all its dynamic and tone-shaping capabilities, the Little Bass Thing also makes a great recording preamp when used without a speaker connected.

By using compression, this amp successfully tricks you into thinking you’re using a tube amp.
The compression successfully tricks you into thinking you’re playing a tube amp.
The pick attack is amazing. The compressor really gets it out. The attack and release are dialed in perfectly.
An Orange bass amp specializing in clean tones.
The built-in optical compressor gives the impression of playing through a tube amp, but without the color and saturation. It’s great for clean and punchy tones.
Orange has come out with a versatile amp that’s good for jazz, funk, RnB…I’m really impressed!
I really don’t want to have to send this back to Orange.
There is as much scope for sounds as there is for power, in this tiny little package.
For the rockers out there, this amp is as gig-friendly as you could hope for, and with plenty of grind and bite on tap, a colourful, harmonically rich bass tone is guaranteed.
It’s a great platform for pedals, especially with the fx loop. It’s simple! Loud! Powerful! And gives you a very nice warm crisp tube like sound.
