I’m Tim Montana and I play for Tim Montana, and that guys an asshole!

First time i saw Orange amps, I was driving through Montana and I started to fall asleep and there was one f*cking was right in front of me in the road and I swerved – overturned the vehicle – and the thing just stayed there like it was sent from the heavens… and so I cranked it up, and the rest is history. It’s f*cking gorgeous.

Country music to me is a hot dude in yoga pants sitting on the stage playing the tracks. But, what Country Music used it be is what I’m all about. It’s speaking your mind, truth… it’s that in-between.. you know, the woods and rock and roll. It’s Country boys speaking their mind, and the country boys I know love to party.

So we got our first Orange Amps, probably 3 years ago, and we’re doing 100 dates a year out there… driving ourselves but we’re hammering the sh*t out of these things on stage, in the trailer – I mean, we take a lot of wild roads, we hit a lot of guard-rails and deer… we just keep blasting but these amps… they’re built to last, they’re built tough and we treat them accordingly. We’re not being you know… I used to have different amps I bring out and you’d wanna treat them like vintage gear, like ‘oh careful, you’re gonna break the tubes!’ but these [Orange] things… we use them constantly, every night out there. Between the Crush amp, which is a solid-state amp – which people used to be like ‘oh you gotta have tubes’ – but that Crush is perfect for clubs. The Rockerverb 100 is amazing for some of the stadiums and outdoor events that we do and they have all of our bases covered and they’re built for guys that want to beat the sh*t out of these amps and have them work every night.

So Orange – obviously they’re a British Amp company, but they sure make some American and Country Rock and Roll sound real f*cking good. And the clean channel, the dirty channel, we can go from ZZ Top to a Waylon Jennings thing in no time and they’re just versatile. They have everything that I need and the Brits got something right. The Brits may have lost the war but they won the amp battle and that’s why Orange is the voice of Country Music.

CLASS A/B 100 WATTS | CELESTION G12K-150 SPEAKER | IMPROVED JFET PREAMP

SUPER CRUSH 100 COMBO

Building on the huge success of our Crush Pro solid state amplifiers, the Super Crush 100 Combo takes this now-classic recipe and goes a step further in the search for valve-like tone. Though equipped with all the same features as the original amp, the Super Crush 100 is a completely new design, proving that a lot of small improvements can make a BIG difference – and there’s a CabSim balanced output too!

With its single-ended, 2-channel JFET preamp design and 100 Watt Class A/B power amp, the Super Crush 100 mimics the huge, rich and responsive tone of our flagship Rockerverb amps in solid state. From clean to heavy high gain, there’s no shortage of Orange mojo. Touch-sensitive dynamics and lush harmonic overtones sing out of this amp with such authority and musicality that you’d swear there were valves inside! This compact 1×12 combo boasts a Celestion G12K-150 speaker, making sure your tone leaves a big impression on the audience – but a tiny footprint on the stage.

AUTHENTIC ANALOGUE TONE

From input to output, the Super Crush 100 uses high-quality analogue circuitry to deliver all the immediacy, definition and character that you would expect from any of our top-of-the-range valve amps. It’s solid state done right.

HIGH GAIN, HIGH VERSATILITY

Two completely independent, all-analogue preamp channels give you instant access to a whole spectrum of warm, valve-like tones. From high-headroom clean to high-gain metal, every sound you could ever need is dialled in with ease, thanks to a versatile circuit and intuitively simple control layout.

The Dirty Channel boasts four cascading stages of proper Orange gain, along with a passive 3-band EQ. Just like its all-valve stablemates, the Super Crush 100’s Dirty Channel can hammer out punishing heavy tones and also clean right up, whether you’re riding the guitar volume knob or the amp’s wide-ranging gain control.

The Clean Channel is a bright, vintage-flavoured, two-stage design. There’s plenty of headroom, keeping your clean tones shimmering and clear at any level, with the option of cranking the volume up into fat, bluesy crunch.

100 WATTS OF SOLID STATE MOJO

Solid state doesn’t have to be lifeless. We’ve proven that before with our Crush Pro range and we’re proving it all over again. The Super Crush 100 uses the tried and tested 100 Watt Class A/B power amp from our Pedal Baby 100 to deliver all the dynamics, presence and feel of a big valve amp. Filling big stages is not a problem thanks to massive headroom, fantastic articulation and relentless punch.

DIRECT AND TO-THE-POINT

The Super Crush 100 features a balanced XLR output with our CabSim speaker emulation technology. Mimicking the sound of a 2×12 cab, this no-nonsense, all-analogue filter gives you instant access to a great D.I. guitar tone, straight into the P.A. or recording interface. The Cab Back switch selects between the sound of an open or closed back cab, homing in on your perfect direct sound quicker than you can say “I don’t need a mic”.

BUILT-IN REVERB AND FULLY-BUFFERED FX LOOP

An on-board digital reverb module provides a lush, spring reverb ambience, adding a deep and shimmering finishing touch to your sound. Prefer your own pedals? The fully-buffered, ultra-transparent, series FX Loop takes care of all your effects needs, accommodating even the most outlandish signal chains without ever compromising your carefully-crafted tone.

CELESTION EQUIPPED

The Super Crush 100 Combo comes armed with a Celestion G12K-150 speaker, giving it a hard-hitting, classically British voice. With 150W power handling, a large ceramic magnet and high sensitivity, this top-spec speaker makes the most of every Watt the amp has to offer.

The Super Crush 100 uses single ended, Class A circuitry in the preamp section, producing a more musical overdrive, along with less noise.

“Super Crush… it’s the diet Rockerverb, sounds great! and costs much less”

Two completely independent, all-analogue preamp channels give instant access to a whole spectrum of warm, valve-like tones. From high-headroom clean to high-gain metal, every sound ever needed is dialled in with ease, thanks to a versatile circuit and intuitive simple control layout.

The lively 100-watt class A/B power amp is derived from the Orange Pedal Baby 100, which earned our Editor’s Choice Award when we reviewed it in 2019.

YOU CAN RUN ONE OF THREE CAB CONFIGURATIONS WITH THE SUPER CRUSH 100 HEAD:

– One 16 ohm cab connected to the one of the speaker outputs.

– Two 16 ohm cabs connected to both speaker outputs, or daisy-chained together from one of the speaker outputs.

– One 8 ohm cab connected to one of the speaker outputs.

NOTE: It’s better to not daisy-chain, in case the first cable or cab in the chain were to fail during a performance; then you’d lose all your sound. Running a separate cable to each cab ensures at least one cab will still be going if a speaker cable or cab fails during a performance.

The Super Crush 100 uses single ended, Class A circuitry in the preamp section, producing a more musical overdrive, along with less noise.
