60 WATTS OF ANALOGUE TONE
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.
Our CR60C combo is a classic two channel 60 Watt ‘grab and go’ 1×12” combo, combining portability with an array of high class tones, perfect for club gigs. The internal Voice of the World speaker is the same driver found in our Tiny Terror and TH30 combos, blending vintage highs with a modern low end response. It’s a speaker that really loves to be pushed, and one which we are very proud of.
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! Complete with professional details like a super transparent, fully buffered effects loop, footswitchable digital reverb (hall/spring/plate) and 18mm birch plywood construction, the CR60C will always perform, wherever your music takes you.
All Analogue Signal Path
Our commitment to analogue amplifier circuitry in a digital age ensures that the Crush Pro 60 combo possess the lively feel and responsiveness that Orange is famous for, inspiring guitarists to play their instruments, not the technology.
Twin Channel, High Gain Preamp Design
Our high gain preamp design puts a truly inspiring range of complex tones in the hands of the player. High quality, low noise components provide four stages of gain with exceptional richness and clarity. The result is amps that deliver everything from blissful cleans, to classic Bluesy Orange crunch all the way through to full-bodied, ultra high gain Metal distortion. Clean and Dirty channels can be switched on the amp’s top panel or remotely using the optional footswitch.
Buffered Effects Loop
For players who love their pedals, the Crush Pro 60’s fully buffered, low impedance loop allows for any number of effects and cables to be patched between the amp’s input and output sections without sacrificing tone. Our attention to detail here means your pedal arsenal will perform to its absolute peak.
Based on a classic ‘spring’ type, the reverb in the Crush Pro 60 combo is an all-new digital module which adds a warm 3D spaciousness to your sound. Ranging from a subtle shimmer to lengthy ethereal trails the circuit features an analogue ‘dry through’, ensuring your guitar’s tone maintains its integrity as the reverb is blended in.
Voice of the World Speaker
Our own custom designed speakers deliver the perfect balance between modern low end punch and vintage highs, maintaining clarity even when pushed.
Classic Orange Styling
Finished in our legendary livery dating back to 1968, the Crush Pro 60 features our basket weave vinyl, woven speaker grille cloth, signature ‘picture frame’ edging and iconic hieroglyphs on the control panel.

If you have been a hardcore valve fan for years, you may be pleasantly surprised.
This may be an Orange for players on a budget, but it has enough power and versatility to work on any stage and in any performance situation.
A brilliant first gigging amp. We wish this had existed in back 1995…
