Yeah, I'd been looking at the Orange Bass Terror. Had heard mixed reactions though- some were a bit dismissive of the build quality (Chinese?). Heard one in action a few weeks back which sounded nice but a bit clean for my tastes.
Is the one in Grifter a 500W or 1000W? Does it have much dirt/ grit /overdrive when it's cranked up?
Not so urgent any more as I've picked up an old Laney PB400 for peanuts to tide me over/ keep as back-up. Still looking for a more permanent set up though.
It seems to be pretty sturdy, it's a fully metal chassis with a metal casing. Phil's been using it for over a year now without a hitch and it's been all over the place with us. As for the gain, not really sure...it's that fucking loud Phil never seems to get to wind it up beyond about 3-4 on the volume scale and it's deafening...and it's only the 500w version. He occasionally sticks a Bass Muff in front of it...but that's usually a short lived thing til he realises the amp sounds better without it. All the bass tones on the album are done with that set up so have a little listen to that.
I'd like to try out a Tiny Terror but to be honest, Phil is so fucking loud at practice...an so is Foz for that matter, I don't think 15 watts would cut through enough. Could be tasty for recording though
