It's Mastodon Vs. Hellyeah in the Orange Amps Classic

Poor Mastodon bassist Troy Sanders. Years after losing to his brother, Hellyeah bassist Kyle Sanders, in the final of the (fictional) 2016 Orange Amplifier Classic competition, Troy is a broken man.

Sitting on a squalid sofa, he binges on junk food watching videos of himself from his glory days. As he gorges himself, he flicks to a replay of the battle that began his slide into obscurity. The video documents the nail-biting fight for the title of Best Bassist—a true clash of bass titans.

Troy and Kyle are aided by an array of Orange bass gear. Kyle opens the battle using two 4 Stroke 500’s through an OBC810 cab. Troy fights back with his double OB1-500 amps through a OBC115 and OBC410H full stack.

The 4 Stroke is a class AB solid-state amp with all-analogue circuitry. It features a full tone stack, which allows for an unparalleled level of control over EQ. The key to the OB1’s unique sound is Orange’s footswitchable blend circuit that adds a veneer of controllable gain and increases harmonic content at the upper register of the input signal.
