Glenn Hughes launches his Signature Crush Bass 50 Amp

Glenn Hughes and Orange Amplification have launched the limited edition Glenn Hughes Signature Crush Bass 50, and it is set in a delightful deep purple and not bright orange.

“You can go in the studio, take that bass combo and make your album with something like that,” Hughes says. “It’s truly outstanding. It’s gritty, and it’s punchy. Sustain is so important, and it’s certainly got all that.”

Hughes has been an Orange ambassador for over a decade, and the new Crush Bass 50 compact combo is inspired by Orange’s flagship AD200 and OB1 bass amplifiers.

The combo has a distinctive tough purple textured vinyl with a silver-coloured plaque reading Glenn Hughes Limited Edition.

“We feel privileged to honour Glenn with this affordable limited-edition bass combo,” Cliff Cooper, Orange Amps CEO and Founder, said. “He has played such a big part in British music history. To make a purple combo is a fitting way to pay tribute to him.”

“Orange all the way,” Hughes says. “It’s the future. It’s the way to go. You heard it from me.”
