The new high power Crush range heralds a new dawn for Orange Amplifiers. These mark Orange’s first foray into the world of high power, solid-state guitar amps. The reason it has taken so long? Well, if an amp is going to be solid state, it has to sound good, right? Up until this point, the designers at Orange couldn't produce a solid state amp that had the power, soul, and tone of the classic Orange tube amps. Well all that has changed! Introducing the best-sounding, most soulful, tone-heavy solid state amp ever invented: the Orange Crush Pro CR60C combo.
Orange has spent years researching, developing and testing a solid-state amplifier which they are truly proud of. The Orange design team felt it was important to keep these amplifiers simple and not bombard the player with hundreds of on board features. The result is an analog, solid-state, two channel (dirty and clean) amplifier based on the prestigious Rockerverb range. The dirty channel uses a circuit based on four stages of gain and a three band EQ which provide the player with a wide pallet of over-driven and distorted sounds. The clean channel is based on a two stage, two band EQ design, that gives the player a clean but warm sound which when cranked begins to break up, just like a Rockerverb! Yes, you read that right: A solid-state amp that breaks up just like a tube amp!
Although simplistic in its design, Orange has also given the Crush Pro amplifiers a transparent effects loop, allowing you to plug in your favourite pedals to open the amplifier up to a wide variety of situations and playing styles. Finally, the amplifier contains an inbuilt digital reverb, providing the player with a natural sounding spring, hall or plate reverb.
Like with all Orange amplifiers, the look had to be right. The Crush exhibits the same features as their valve based brothers which includes: Orange basket-weave Tolex, woven speaker grille, beading, hieroglyphs, and of course the Orange signature picture frame edging.
The Crush CR60C is a 60W solid-state combo made from 18mm ply and loaded with Oranges own 1x12″ 60W, 16 Ohm Voice of the World speakers. Like all of the parts in Orange products, these speakers are of the highest quality, both in terms of construction and tone. The Voice of the World speakers, combined with the analog solid-state circuitry, gives the CR60C the tonal clarity and definition players adore in an Orange amplifier.
The Crush CR60C has been designed to look and sound the part be it in a rehearsal, in a living room or on the stage. Try one today! You won't be disappointed.
