Solid State Never Sounded So Good

The Crush Pro Series marks our first foray into the realm of high powered, stage-ready solid state amplifiers. Taking its inspiration from the twin channel circuit in our prestigious Rockerverb series, the Crush Pro range has been developed using high grade solid state components. At Orange we have embraced this analogue technology and honed it to the point of perfection. The result is amplifiers that deliver the warm, rich tonal characteristics that have been our hallmark from the very beginning, coupled with extraordinary levels of versatility and construction to match.

The Clean channel is a vintage-inspired design, with plenty of sparkle. As the volume control increases, the amp begins to break up into bluesy crunch at higher settings with musical, touch sensitive overdrive. The overall output volume can then be reduced to ‘bedroom levels’ with global master volume. The Dirty channel takes its roots from the Rockerverb, covering a wide dynamic range with four stages of gain. Even at the limit, the Dirty channel remains tight and focused with sustain for days!

Building on the platform of the CR60C, the larger CR120C combo takes the same preamp circuitry and couples it to a 120 Watt output section. The extra power yields even more clean headroom at high volumes, ideal for glassy arpeggiated chords. The bigger output stage and 2×12” speakers help to fill the room, making the CR120C a great partner for larger venues. Complete with professional details like a super transparent, fully buffered effects loop, footswitchable digital reverb (hall/spring/plate) and 18mm birch plywood construction, the CR120C will always perform, wherever your music takes you.

You have to try one of these things. There is a sound for everyone.

It has the exact tone I was searching for for my deathcore band, my noise rock solo project and for jazz and blues. If it was ever stolen, well, read some Cannibal Corpse lyrics. These things would happen to the stealer.

I’m a tube-amp guy. Whether I’m playing bass or guitar, I prefer the warmth, dynamics and response that you get from tubes. That said, I have played through many modelling and solid state amps that claim to deliver “tube-like realism” that fall flat. This is absolutely not the case with this amp. The Clean channel sounds and behaves like you’d expect a great tube amp to, going from full, rich cleans to classic Orange overdrive, while the Dirty channel offers even more headroom for a delightfully versatile range of tones, all the way to ear-splitting distortion.

Really, the amp is so simple and easy to use that it’s rendered a longitude write-up kind of moot – I’ll cap this off by saying it’s an absolute steal if you’re ballin’ on a budget but want authentic Orange.
