Modern to Vintage

From warm modern cleans, through to vintage grind and all
the way up to full-on distorted mayhem, the Crush Bass 50 combines the
essentials of a practice rig with tone and features normally reserved for the
pros. The Crush Bass 50 draws inspiration from our flagship OB1 and 4 Stroke
amplifiers, bringing some of the defining elements of each into a compact

Like the rest of the Crush Bass range, this 50 Watt model
delivers bold and punchy lows courtesy of its analogue circuitry and ported
cabinetry. The extremely flexible active EQ section includes a sweepable
parametric mid band, allowing players to shape their signature sound without
limitations. For even more versatility, the interactive Gain and Blend controls
are primed for creating enormous ‘bi-amped’-style tones with ease, adding extra
harmonics and variable levels of grit to the core bass tone. They can also be
switched in remotely using the optional footswitch. Other handy features
include a buffered effects loop, integrated tuner, aux. input and a headphone
output with our Cabsim circuitry.

Features and Technical Specs
  • Powerful Active
  • Parametric EQ
  • The Crush Bass 50 features an EQ circuit inspired by our

  • prestigious 4 Stroke Series amplifiers. At its centre is a parametric mid band.
  • This presents players with a much greater degree of control over the sound than
  • a traditional EQ, allowing them to vary the frequencies they want hear. The mid
  • band covers a wide range, sweeping from 300Hz (fully counter-clockwise) to
  • 2.7kHz (fully clockwise), meaning this amp can be fine tuned to suit any
  • musical style. The active circuitry allows for up to 15dB of boost or cut on
  • the bass and middle frequencies, and up to 20dB on the treble side.

  • Blend & Gain

  • Lifted straight from our popular OB1 Series amps, the Blend

  • and Gain controls are a nod to the many bass players who experiment with guitar
  • and bass amps simultaneously. In this ‘bi-amped’ setup, layers of harmonics and
  • distortion from the guitar amp are blended with the core bass tone to create
  • the ultimate full-range live sound. The Crush Bass 50’s Gain and Blend controls
  • create the same effect in a single package, adding extra bite and crispness to
  • the tone at lower gain settings, right up to all-out filth with the dials
  • cranked. These controls can also be engaged remotely with the optional FS-1
  • footswitch, ideal for fattening your tone on the fly.

  • Analogue Design &

  • Ported Cabinet

  • The Crush Bass series delivers fat, rounded sound thanks to

  • an all analogue signal path. The Crush Bass 50 houses a 12” speaker with a
  • reflex port for improved low-end response. The buffered effects loop has been
  • engineered for maximum transparency, ensuring your pedal arsenal will perform
  • to its peak.

  • Cabsim Headphone

  • Output, Aux Input & Chromatic Tuner

  • The headphone output features our Cabsim circuitry
  • which emulates the response of our stage-ready OBC bass speaker cabinets during
  • silent practice. This signal can also be sent to a console for seriously
  • authentic direct recording. The Aux. Input allows for connecting external audio
  • sources for backing tracks whilst the handy onboard tuner makes for quick
  • tune-ups between jams.
