ULTRA-TRANSPARENT | TOTAL TONAL CONTROL | LOW NOISE

THE ACOUSTIC PEDAL

The Orange Acoustic Pedal takes all the know-how of our acclaimed Acoustic Pre TC preamp and Crush Acoustic 30 amplifier, cramming it all into a do-it-all, compact preamp pedal. Whether you need to win the battle against feedback, handle complex effects chains, brighten up a dull instrument or just plug into a PA, the Acoustic Pedal has you covered – in top-notch Orange style. With a low-noise JFET circuit design, surgical-yet-flattering EQ, XLR and 1/4″ outputs and a buffered FX Loop, all situations are taken care of. This high-headroom, high-quality pedal keeps your setup simple and controlled, leaving you free to do what you do best. Play.

EQ WITH NOTCH CONTROL

Acoustic instruments can be tricky. When dealing with feedback, finnicky pickups and finding a place in the mix, you need an EQ that is both powerful and simple. The Middle knob works in conjunction with the Notch and Q Factor controls to subtly sculpt your sound or tackle feedback with precision. Fixed-frequency Bass and Treble knobs give you much-needed control over the “body” and “sparkle” of your instrument.

HIGH HEADROOM, LOW NOISE

The Acoustic Pedal uses a single-ended JFET circuit design to guarantee insanely low levels of background noise. No hiss, even with the Treble control maxed! Super-high headroom comes courtesy of the 18V power supply, guaranteeing the cleanest, clearest acoustic tone we could give you.

BALANCED XLR OUTPUT

Connect straight to the P.A. with no need for a D.I. box. Our studio-grade, balanced XLR output will drive long cable runs with noise-free, high-fidelity performance. The built in phase flip enables eradication of phase cancellation issues at the press of a button, while the additional 1/4″ mono jack output can be used simultaneously for ultimate flexibility.

BUFFERED FX LOOP

Effects aren’t just for electric guitarists. In the world of the modern acoustic player, where loopers, reverbs and delays are just as important as the instrument itself, creating the perfect signal chain is essential. Our highly-transparent, buffered FX Loop gives you the freedom to build your dream acoustic rig, without compromise.

The Orange Acoustic Pedal is a Single Ended, Class A, Acoustic Preamp, with a Full Parametric Midrange / Notch Filter, and a Buffered FX Loop.

When you add up all the positives: The build quality, the clean tone, the well thought out ins and outs, the EQ and the price…. it’s a no brainer to me if you’re looking for an external preamp

The 18V Acoustic Pedal and its useful effects loop are super-quiet and do a fantastic job of preserving signal integrity

For plugging into either an amp or a DAW, I found the Acoustic Pedal to be a useful—and cool-looking!—addition to my setup that offers transparent EQ options whether using an undersaddle pickup or magnetic soundhole pickup

FOR THE ACOUSTIC PERFORMER

With over 50 years of experience in great guitar tone and quality, the Crush Acoustic 30 is Orange’s entry into the world of acoustic amplification. At ease in any situation, this lightweight, portable, battery powered acoustic combo continues the Orange tradition of simple but versatile design.

With a custom speaker, angled cabinet and 30 Watts of power, the Crush Acoustic 30 is a great companion for busking, gigs or practice. Two channels, built-in effects and a feedback-busting notch filter take care of all the details, leaving you free to work your magic.

CHANNEL 1 – INSTRUMENT CHANNEL

Optimised for acoustic guitar, this channel features a ¼” jack input and a 3-band active EQ. A -10dB Pad switch helps guarantee a clean signal with higher output instruments while the Colour switch adds a treble boost and slight mid scoop, great for livening up dull pickups or finding your place in the mix.

CHANNEL 2 – MIC CHANNEL

With an XLR/jack combi input, this channel can be used for a second guitar signal or as a dedicated microphone input. The Mic/Line switch selects between XLR and jack inputs and +48V Phantom Power lets you use your favourite studio microphones.

GLOBAL EFFECTS AND NOTCH FILTER

The on-board digital effects processor can add a range of Reverb or Chorus sounds individually to each channel. Easy to use controls dial in a variety of tones in seconds. A global notch control uses a narrow-Q filter to precisely select and remove problem frequencies, eliminating unwanted feedback.

30 WATT POWER AMP, VOICE OF THE WORLD SPEAKER

The full-range, 8” Voice of the World speaker is designed specially for the Crush Acoustic 30. Coupled with its efficient Class D power amp delivering 30 Watts, this bespoke speaker’s natural presence will cut through any crowd.

GET CONNECTED

A buffered FX Loop, ¼” Line output and a balanced XLR out give you all the connections you need, even for complicated rigs. A 3.5mm Aux-In jack can be used to connect a smartphone, tablet or similar audio device, allowing you to play along to backing tracks.

BATTERY POWERED

The Crush Acoustic 30 is the perfect amp to use on the go. The battery compartment takes 10 AA batteries, giving you 3 hours of power at full volume, 5 hours at 50% volume and 8 hours at low volume.
