Orange Amplification has announced that legendary bassist Glenn Hughes (BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION, DEEP PURPLE, BLACK SABBATH, TRAPEZE) is now endorsing its amps.
For over forty years, Glenn has been a vocalist, bass player and songwriter in some of the greatest rock acts of all time as well as achieving success in his own solo career.
From his early days with TRAPEZE, the British rock bassist and vocalist went onto to join one of the biggest bands of the ’70s, DEEP PURPLE, where Glenn‘s bass playing and vocals were the anchor for several classic albums, including “Burn”, “Stormbringer” and “Come Taste The Band”. He is currently lead vocalist and bass player in the rock supergroup BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION and still finds time to record and tour in his own name as well as many other projects such as Rock ‘N’ Roll Allstars.
His move to Orange Amplification sees him returning back to his roots of using a British-made vintage inspired amp with full modern tones.
“I plugged into to that Orange amp and it was as though it had been designed for me!” Glenn said. “It was the Glenn Hughes sound… It was the sound I had with TRAPEZE in ’69 and the sound I had with DEEP PURPLE!”
Glenn will be using the AD200B MK3 head with an OBC810 8 x 10″ bass speaker cabinet on his latest tour. The AD200B MK3 is quite simply one of the purest bass amps ever produced with a creamy dynamic low end and a focused midrange crunch. The OBC810 is a revered bass cabinet first made in small numbers back in the 1970s, and recently relaunched, it has to be heard to be believed.
