Orange Crush 20 RT, Solid State 20W Combo Amplifier
When it comes to warmth, volume and tone you'd be pushed to try and one-up Orange amplifiers. From their most expensive and exclusive models, down to their most affordable beginner ranges, Orange have a reputation for high-quality, and that's certainly the case with the Orange Crush 20RT, a 20 watt solid-state combo amplifier with inbuilt reverb and chromatic tuner. With a fully analogue signal, "valve-like" sound production and the option for as much signal saturation as you could want, the Crush 20RT is perfect for home practice, studio recording and small gig settings.
Despite it's diminutive size, the custom 8" Voice of the World speaker housed in the Crush 20RT packs a mean punch and delivers the kind of consistently high-quality tone we've come to expect from Orange amps, even at the highest volume levels. You also get an aux-in socket (to play backing tracks through the amp for you jam along with) and a CabSim loaded headphone output socket, adding the finishing touches to this plucky little amplifier and making it the perfect choice for new guitarists looking for their first practice amp.
Vintage Orange Tone, in a small affordable package
All Analogue Signal Path
The all analogue signal path of the Crush 20RT 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.
Buffered Effects Loop
Make use of any number of effects without sacrificing tone with the Crush 20RT's fully buffered, low impedance Effects Loop. For those purists who like their guitar's tone to be as clean as possible, even with the use of effects, you can't go wrong with a good effects loop option, and there are arguably none better than those you get with Orange amps.
CabSim - Cabinet Simulation
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.
Reverb & Integrated Chromatic Tuner
The all-new digital Reverb module housed within the Orange Crush 20RT is based heavily on the classic 'spring' reverbs of yesteryear, adding a warm 3D spaciousness to your playing that ranges from a slight shimmer to an elongated ethereal trail. The circuit makes use of an analogue 'dry through' signal, making sure your guitar's tone remains intact with the reverb blended in. As if all of these other features weren't enough for you to sink your teeth into, Orange have also integrated a Chromatic Tuner into the amp, allowing you to quickly & accurately tune your guitar between jams.
Voice of the World Speaker
The custom-designed Voice of The World Speaker housed in the Orange Crush 20RT 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
If there's one thing that everybody knows about Orange amplifiers, it's that they're usually... well... orange. The Orange Crush 20RT is not only finished in the signature orange basketweave vinyl that has been used by the company since the 1960's, 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.
