Ever since they burst onto the scene in 1968, the sight of the famous Orange heraldic crest adorning an amplifier is a sure sign of quality. That continues to be the case today, even in their most affordable models, such as the solid-state Orange Crush 20, a portable and affordable 20-watt combo amp with enough punch to make your voice heard whether it be in a quiet gig, band reheasal or at home practice (although your neighbours will be glad to know that there's also a headphone socket built into it).
The sheer punch achieved through the Crush 20's custom 8" Voice of the World speaker is nothing short of staggering, with a commanding delivery that belies amp's modest footprint. Featuring an Aux In for backing tracks and a CabSim-loaded headphone output the Crush 20 is an obvious choice for players seeking the legendary 'Orange sound' in a practice amp format.
The Practice Amp, Refined
All Analogue Signal Path
The all analogue signal path of the Crush 20 is evidence of Orange's commitment to continual use of analog circuitry, making sure that even the most affordable of models can produce that trademark Orange sound that we all know to expect when we see their famous logo adorning a speaker. The 3-band EQ section on the amp is the perfect finishing touch, with the whole package inspiring musicians to play their instrument and not their effects.
Twin Channel, High Gain Preamp Design
With detailed saturation and versitility, you get to experience a complex range of sound options hitherto unheard of in a practice amp. Play everything from crispy clean, to Orange's signature bluesy tube-like crunch, to an ultra-saturated high-gain metal sound without loosing any of that exceptional richness and clarity that Orange pride themselves on producing. Switch between the clean and dirty channels either via the amp's top panel, or via the optional footswitch.
Orange's trademark CabSim feature opens up a whole new world of headphone / recording options for your sound, allowing you to accurately emulate the sound of a mic'd Orange 4x12 cabinet loaded with Voice of The World Speakers and making any recording sound as authentically "Orange" as is possible without having to make use of the much bigger and more cumbersome alternatives.
Voice of The World Speaker
The custom-designed Voice of The World Speaker housed in the Orange Crush 20 has been specifically created to deliver the perfect balance between modern low-end punch and vintage highs, meaning that no matter how hard you push it your guitar's tone remains intact, and the signal remains crystal clear.
Classic Orange Styling
The Orange Crush 20 is finished in black basketweave vinyl and it also features a woven speaker grille cloth, signature picture frame edging and the iconic hieroglyphs on the control panel that all users of Orange amps know and love.
