Bass Odyssey 100



Fat Jimmy is proud to offer the Bass Odyssey 100

The all tube 100w Bass Odyssey delivers much, much more than one would expect from a 100 watt bass head!

This is NOT a glorified Fender circuit as commonly found in many ’boutique’ tube bass heads on the market.

This bass amp played into our 2 x 15″ cab delivers plenty of power even on larger outdoor festival stages.

Field tested and approved by professionals such as Nate Mendel (Foo Fighters), Dave Schools (Widespread Panic), Robert Kearns (Sheryl Crow, Lynyrd Skynyrd) Andy Hess (Black Crowes), Pete Sears, Reggie Stanlan (Radiators), Jeff Hill (Chris Robinson Brotherhood), and Paul Ill (Disreputable Few, Bob Weir) to name a few.

The Fat Jimmy Bass Odyssey 100 has been replacing the ‘Big Rigs’ – SVTs and Ashdowns – on professional stages, from clubs and theatres all the way up to large scale sports arenas.

There is a ‘fatness’, warmth and clarity to this amp that is unmatched by any other bass rig on the market.  The low end is BIG, fat and punchy without being muddy.  The higher notes sing, sustain and blossom in a way that has surprised and pleased even the most seasoned players!   The Bass Odyssey 100 delivers remarkably deep and rich texture overall…  a very fitting word (and often used by players when describing the amp) is ROUND.

Simplicity is highly regarded by players who appreciate superior tone.  The Bass Odyssey 100 is no exception.  Treble, Mid, Bass and Presence controls allow you to quickly and easily dial in the tone to suit your instrument and playing style.  Our subtle and useful bright switch adds just a ‘touch’ of upper end clarity.  The interaction of the Gain and Volume controls lets you to get just the right amount of ‘growl’.  Our unique ‘boost’ switch changes the entire character of the amp!  It adds a whole lot of growl and gain with one click – a surprisingly aggressive change in tone and amazing for capturing that elusive ‘classic rock’ character lacking in so many bass amps these days.  I often refer to it as the ‘Chris Squire’ switch.

Features include a balanced XLR line out with it’s own Cine-Mag step-down transformer!  This eliminates the need for a DI in front of the amplifier!!  We tap the signal from the speaker out and drop it down to mic or line level (adjustable output).  This way the front of house gets the same sweet tone POST POWER TUBES that is being delivered to your speakers!  FOH gets the warm, fat sound of the entire amp!  THIS IS ALSO A GAME CHANGER IN THE STUDIO!!!

The Bass Odyssey 100 features a selectable 2/4/8 ohm output and two output jacks for use with a wide variety of speaker configurations.

4 x 6L6 power tubes give you more than you would ever expect from 4 x 6L6s!  It is our belief that 6L6 are the ULTIMATE ‘higher power’ power tube, and when set up right, deliver EXACTLY what you put into them.  
Our unique 2-stage phase inverter creates an incredible amount of DEPTH and TEXTURE… delivering a FAT, ROUND, and PUNCHY low end with a VERY authoritative, yet surprisingly relaxed feel at the same time.

Dims: 24”W x 9 ⅝” D x 8”H, 35 lbs

“…many thanks to Mike Pascale for the use of his amazing Fat Jimmy Bass Odyssey 100 bass amp… the most impressive bass amp I’ve played in a long time… super low fat bottom w/ lots of punch…and!, for the most demanding players, it goes to ’11’!  I never got past ‘4’… ’11’ probably would have collapsed the building…”  -Reggie Scanlan of The Radiators.
