Orange Amplification is extending its best-sellingCrush amps range with the launch of three new professional levelproducts: the CR60C 60 Watt 1 x 12 Combo, CR120C 120 Watt 2 x 12 Combo and CR120H 120 Watt Head. Designed withoutcompromise, these new products deliver quality sound and build at aprice, which is superb value for money.
The new additions to the Crush range are the firstsolid-state professional amps to be launched by Orange since thelate 70's. Working on the brand philosophy 'simple is better', theOrange engineers have created a pre-amplifier based on the highlyprestigious and respected Rockerverb range which delivers warm andrich tonal characteristics using solid-state technology.
The new Crush amplifiers contain both a clean anddirty channel, which are foot switchable. With both channels basedon the Rockerverb series, the clean channel uses two stages ofgain, which provide a wonderfully warm clean tone which begins tobreak up when cranked. The dirty channel's four stages of gain givethe Crush the overdriven sound guitarist's lust for in an Orangeamplifier. Also on-board the amplifiers are a new natural sounddigital reverb, which gives the player the choice of spring, plateor hall. For those wishing the amplifiers to be used in a varietyof situations and playing styles a super transparent FX loop isincluded which operates in a similar manner to that used in thebrand's valve models.
Only the best quality components have been specified,the combos include Orange's 'Voice of the World' 60 Watt speaker,which are the same as those found in our larger Orange products.This brings a high level of sensitivity to these new amplifiersgiving them that distinct Orange warm midrange tone on theoverdrive channel and a super sparkly clean tone.
Continuing with the no compromise design ethos, theseamplifiers have the look of the flagship Orange products. Using theOrange basket-weave Tolex, woven speaker grille, beading,hieroglyphs and of course the Orange signature picture frameedging. The combo cabinets and the head sleeve are made from 18mmplywood making them solid, rugged and durable.
The new products extend the Crush range out of thepractice amp market offering a product that is perfect for bandrehearsals and small to medium size gigs. The CR60C (£349 Inc.
