52 pedals, week 36—Orange Bax Bangeetar

When I first started posting guitar related content on this website I made the decision to only post imagery in black and white. They’re my favourite tones and shades—because they’re not colours. Of course, if I had to choose a colour for something like an amplifier brand, the choice is clearly Orange. So if I’m going to add a pedal that apparently can be provided in black and white, then it also may as well be Orange. That makes sense right? Of course it does. Just as the Bax Bangeetar pedal makes perfect sense.

Well, it will by the end of this. I promise.

I’ve been a fan of Orange Amplification for a while. I’d love to get my hands on the Jim Root signature head and combo in particular. That amplifier is a beast. But not everyone can afford or justify an amplifier that awesome. For those people—I’m one of them—a good pedal can make all the difference to their tone output. Luckily the Bax Bangeetar can help with that and for much less than an amplifier package like the Jim Root signature set.

I still want that head/cab package one day.

The Bax Bangeetar provides users with a wide range of overdriven and distorted tones. It does so with the added benefit of a fully parametric mid controls section—covering Q, frequency, and mid control (cutting or boosting). The pedal offers buffered bypass—apparently better than true bypass—and can also act as a boost pedal.

One added advantage of this pedal is its ability to sit before the amplifier or in the FX loop. You’ve got to appreciate versatility like that. Another versatile feature is the Cab Sim output. This allows you to plug the pedal straight into your PA or recording interface. This output simulates the sound of a mic’d 4×12″ Orange cabinet. Now you have an Orange amplifier for recording purposes—sort of.

Words are always good. But sound is better. Imagine sound with moving pictures though! Well, imagine no more!

Sounds awesome right? I say yes. I also say I want one. Bring on Christmas perhaps. #hint

Disclaimer: I’ve not played this guitar pedal. I have not experienced first-hand the sound or effects of this guitar pedal. That doesn’t matter. It looks awesome, it’s obviously played by winners and I want one.
