You may have noticed that this upcoming Monday and Tuesday we’re sponsoring Studio Pass: Kurt Ballou, a free online clinic. We’ve mentioned it a couple times. Well the last of those times was in a preview that dealt with blending clean and distorted tones for bass guitar. Distortion reduces low end, so you blend in some clean to retain it.
Well Orange have a bass amp that does it for you, which Kurt happened to notice when he was giving us a demo of his new GCI guitar line. So here he is, messing around with the amp in question, Orange’s OB-1K. Note the little blender icon above the knob. But does it blend? Yup, it blends.
