Deep Purple and Black Country Communion bassist adds his endorsement 04-Sep-12
Orange Amplification has announced that bassist Glenn Hughes is now endorsing their 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 '70's, 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 The Rock & Roll All Stars.
His move to Orange Amplification sees him returning back to his roots of using a British made vintage inspired amp with full modern tones. Commenting on Orange Amplification, Glenn said, "I plugged into to that Orange amp and it was as though it had been designed for me! 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. An Orange spokesperson told Amped, "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 re-launched, it has to be heard to be believed." More information:
