This week’s NAMM Show sees Orange reveal the new Crush range of practice amps with high gain, four-stage preamp design
range have announced the launch of the new 2015 Crush series practice amplifiers – Crush 12, Crush 20, Crush 20RT and Crush 35RT – to introduce guitarists of all levels to the signature Orange sound, whilst offering an alternative to digital modelling.
Building on the success of the Crush Pro range, Orange has opened up the same high gain, four-stage preamp design to the new Crush series, capturing the ‘dirty’ channel of their iconic Rockerverb in solid state form. Combined with Orange’s custom Voice Of The World speakers, the new Crush deliver gut-punching tones with responsive overdrive and levels of detailed saturation.
All models feature Orange’s new CabSim circuit which faithfully emulates the muscle of an Orange 4×12″ cabinet through the headphone/line output, whilst channel switching is available on 20W and 35W models. RT versions feature onboard reverb and an integrated chromatic tuner. The Crush 35RT also includes a fully buffered low-impedance effects loop and more than enough output for the rehearsal room.
Key features include new high gain preamp design, footswitchable channels, analogue signal path, custom Orange Voice Of The World speakers, CabSim loaded headphone/line output and free access to the online beginner Orange Rock Guitar Syllabus.
The Crush series will be available from 22 January, but Orange Amplification will be showing the new series and all their other new products at this week’s NAMM 2015 conference in Anaheim, USA. For more details, visit www.orangeamps.com
