What Reidys say...
The Orange CR60C combo amplifier has all the orange tube tone you could want in a solid state package thats loud enough to gig but still sounds great at lower volumes for home rehearsal. Orange are world renowned for their Valve powered amplifiers. However through much research and development they have crafted a high powered solid state amp worthy of the legacy that they have created for themselves. This 2 channel amp heralded as Orange's solid state answer to their much loved rockerverb tube amplifier has crisp cleans and a dirty channel with that Classic Orange gain. The CR60C can handle all styles from classic rock right up to high gain metal. Roll that gain back again and you can hear the dirty channel clean up exceptionally well for an all round fantastic amplifier.

What Orange say...
The new high power Crush range heralds a new 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? They've have yet to be 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 analogue, 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 over-driven 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!
Although simplistic in its design, Orange have also given the amplifiers a transparent effects loop, allowing you to plug in your favourite pedals to open the amplifier up to a wide variety of situations and playing styles. Finally, the amplifier contains an inbuilt 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 CR60C is a 60W solid-state combo made from 18mm ply and loaded with Oranges own 1×12? 60W, 16 Ohm Voice of the World speakers. Like all of the parts in our products, these speakers are of the highest quality, both in terms of construction and tone. The Voice of the Worlds combined with the analogue solid-state circulatory gives the CR60C the tonal clarity and definition players adore in an Orange amplifier.
The Crush CR60C has been designed to look and sound the part be it in a rehearsal, in a living room or on the stage.

BRINGING THE ‘ORANGE SOUND’ TO THE REHEARSAL ROOM
New for 2015, the Crush 35RT is the largest and most feature-laden model in the Crush range. Orange's new twin channel, high gain preamp coupled to a beefier 35Watt output stage and 10inch Voice of the World speaker yields amazing results, delivering even greater punch, presence and volume. In addition to onboard reverb and an integrated chromatic tuner, the Crush 35RT also features Aux In for backing tracks and our CabSim-loaded headphone output.
To top it all off, the Crush 35RT is complete with a fully buffered, ultra transparent effects loop to truly get the most from your pedal setup. With features like these and more than enough bite and attitude for the rehearsal space, this combo goes way beyond the call of a traditional practice amplifier.
All Analogue Signal Path
Orange's commitment to analogue amplifier circuitry in a digital age ensures Crush amps possess the lively feel and responsiveness that Orange is famous for, inspiring guitarists to play their instruments, not the technology. The Crush 20’s highly effective 3 band EQ section allows for huge control over your sound, from bold vintage colours to scooped modern tones.
Twin Channel, High Gain Preamp Design
Experience levels of detailed saturation and versatility never before heard in a practice amplifier. Building on the huge success of our Crush Pro series, 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 35RT’s fully buffered, low impedance loop allows for any number of effects and cables to be patched between the amp’s input and routput sections without sacrificing tone. Our attention to detail here means your pedal arsenal will perform to its absolute peak.
The headphone/line output includes our new CabSim feature, faithfully emulating the sound of a mic’d Orange 4×12in cabinet loaded with our flagship Voice of the World speakers. Use headphones for silent practice or connect to a mixer/recording console to capture huge, authentic Orange tones in the studio.
Reverb & Integrated Chromatic Tuner
Based on a classic ‘spring’ type, the reverb in the Crush ‘RT models 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. The integrated chromatic tuner is accurate and fast-tracking for quick tune-ups between jams.
Voice of the World Speaker
Orange's 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 Orange's legendary livery dating back to 1968, the Crush range features our basket weave vinyl, woven speaker grille cloth, signature ‘picture frame’ edging and iconic hieroglyphs on the control panel.
