This is a great little practice amp; ideal either for a beginner or perhaps for a seasoned player after a smaller bedroom amp. Orange have updated their faithful Crush amp range to make them sound better than ever. The Crush 12 now has an all-analogue signal path resulting in a more natural, organic sound. The dedicated overdrive and distortion controls on the Crush 12 allow you to dial in everything from a nice, warm clean to crisp overdrive and chunky distortion. It also includes a 3 band EQ - great not only for shaping tone but also for teaching beginners about the guitar's different frequency ranges. The CabSim on the headphone output means that you'll get that classic huge Orange tone, at the quietest of volumes.

ALL ANALOGUE | 3 BAND EQ | CABINET SIMULATION
The Crush 12 is the smallest of the full-format Crush models designed for guitarists with a no-nonsense attitude to quality analogue tone. This single channel combo features a powerful 3 band EQ and dedicated Overdrive control for tones ranging from crisp and clean through to vintage Orange crunch.
The Crush 12’s custom 6" Voice of the World speaker ensures the amp always remains punchy and articulate, despite its tiny dimensions. Our new CabSim-loaded headphone output means huge tones at whisper quiet volume, making this combo an ideal practice partner for players of all levels.
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 12's Overdrive control can be used to sculpt a wide range of dirty tones, from sweet and crunchy to rich and thick. The newly voiced EQ section allows for even greater control over your sound.
The headphone/line output includes our new CabSim feature, faithfully emulating the sound of a mic'd Orange 4×12" 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.
Voice of the World Speaker
Orange own custom designed speakers deliver the perfect balance between modern low end punch and vintage highs, maintaining clarity even when pushed.
