The high-power Orange CR120H Crush Guitar Amplifier Head heralds a dawn for Orange Amplifiers. These mark Orange's first foray into the world of high-power, solid-state amplifiers. The reason it has taken so long? Orange Amplifiers wasn't happy with the sound -
- that is, until now.Orange have spent years researching, developing and testing a solid-state amplifier which they are truly proud of. The Orange design team felt it was important to keep these amplifiers simple and not bombard the player with hundreds of on-board features. The result is an analog, solid-state, two channel (dirty and clean) amplifier based on the prestigious Rockerverb range. The dirty channel use a circuit based on four stages of gain and a three band EQ which provide the player with a wide pallet of overdriven and distorted sounds. The clean channel is based on a two stage, two band EQ design, that gives the player a clean but warm sound which when cranked begins to break up, just like a Rockerverb!Orange has also given the CR120H Crush a transparent effects loop, allowing you to plug in your favorite pedals to open the amplifier up to a wide variety of situations and playing styles. Finally, the amplifier contains an built-in digital reverb, providing the player with a natural sounding spring, hall or plate reverb.Like with all Orange amplifiers, the look had to be right. The Crush exhibit the same features as their valve-based brothers which includes Orange basket-weave Tolex, woven speaker grille, beading, hieroglyphs and of course the Orange signature picture frame edging.The Crush CR120H packs a 120 Watts into a head with the classic Orange look. The Crush CR120H has been designed to look and sound the part, be it in a rehearsal, living room or on the stage.
