Overview

The Orange Crush CR120 is a 120W solid-state amp head that offers the tonal clarity and definition players adore in an Orange amplifier. The Crush CR120 amp is part of the Crush range, marking Orange's first foray into the world of high power, solid-state amplifiers. Orange have spent years creating a solid-state amp they could be proud of.

The Orange team wanted to keep these amp simple. The dirty channel uses a circuit based on four stages of gain and a three-band EQ, which provides 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.

These amps have a transparent effects loop, allowing you to plug in your favorite pedals. It also contains a digital reverb that provides a natural-sounding spring, hall or plate reverb.

  • Clean channel controls: Volume, Bass and Treble
  • Dirty channel controls: Volume, Bass, Middle, Treble and Gain

This is my second review. This time Im comparing it directly my recently acquired RV50C.

As I said before, the CR120 is an amazing head. If anything, I like the amp even more. The one change I would make to my previous review is the clean channel is much more than adequate. It actually is very good.

To start, the sound of the rockerverb is bigger and more dynamic than the CR120. But, I did a thorough study and found I could get to CR120 to sound very similar to the RV50.

The RV50C has two Vintage 30s. I hooked the CR120 to a 1x12 with an EVH Greenback and a 4x12 with Celestion Greenbacks. I started with the 1x12 which is rated for only 20W. I set both amps to same volume (not bedroom...more practice level) and played through an AB switch. I used a Gibson Les Paul Std.

I set the tone of the RV to my favorite hi gain setting and was able to tweak the EQ on the CR120 to get pretty darn close. I most certainly got in the Orange Rockerverb range. The CR120 is a true tone machine. I then tested the clean side. Again I was able to get close though tube amps audio is always more organic. The tube reverb on the RV is much better than the digital reverb on the CR ( which is more than adequate).

I had less success with the 4x12 with greenbacks though I again was able to achieve vintage Orange tones. I recommend you pair this head with an orange cab with Vintage 30s. The amp is definitely voiced to their cabs and Vintage 30s. I think Orange 2x12 would be enough and would sound great. Note- I've never used a Voice of the World speaker so no comment the matching 4x12 Orange recommends.

In conclusion, the CR120H is a great piece of kit that gets you for sure into vintage Orange tones! You will certainly get in the Rockerverb neighborhood especially with an orange cab with V30s. I'm actually surprised Orange made this amp so good. Sure the RV is awesome and was the tones I was trying to match. The CR120 gets you about 80 % there on the dirty side and maybe 70% there on the clean channel. What Orange did is polar opposite of what Marshall does. The Marshall MG line is light years from their more expensive tube amps. I've playedthe MGCFX100H significantly and it is not at all in the neighborhood of a JVM or even their imported DSL line. Orange, and good on them, made a solid state amp that has most of the MOJO of their flag ship amp.

So, if you want Orange Rockerverb but don't have the budget, the CR120 gets you pretty close.

Again, Great Job Orange Amplification !! I can't recommend this amp enough for the budget minded guitarist who wants to enjoy that Orange sound.

    standby mode allows the tubes/valves to warm up and cool down before and after use. Just clarifying, really not necessary on a solid state amp.

      Comments about Orange Amplifiers Crush Pro CR120H 120W Guitar Amp Head:

      Great warm signature orange tone ! Super straight forward , and you don't have to deal with flipping through tons of complicated screens on most solid state amps these days. Only downside is that IT DOES NOT DO WELL IN A BAND MIX! I find when I use it with a band it just gets lost even with the mids cracked up all the way. It sounds good with a bass and drums , but once another guitar is brought in , the orange is just drowned out. If you play mostly in your bedroom , it's great and can do bedroom and stage volumes .

          Sounds good but didn't realize no standby switch which is unfortunate. I use the clean switch as standby. Didn't even think about it when I bought it. Pretty important part of an amp. A little disappointed. But it is a good sounding head for the money

          No Standby Switch, didn't even think of that when I ordered it. How can they make an amp with no Standby Switch. I don't use the clean channel so that is my Standby Switch now, but a little disappointed. My other head is Marshall 2000, really no comparison in sound /tone but it is a good sounding amp.

          Comments about Crush Pro CR120H 120W Guitar Amp Head:

          Very easy to use...simple...straight forward. Not my thing, though. I play Metal mostly and I found that the distortion is just not "metal" enough...at least not for me. The cleans also sound kind of "sterile".
          I give it 4 stars because it's a good amp, well made, well priced and very loud, so I know it will be perfect for a lot of people. Just because I don't like the sound, doesn't mean it's a bad product. I think mostly "rockers" will enjoy this amp. And just so you know what my ears like, the Peavey 6505 metal sound is the parameter here. I hope this helps.

            I really like simple amps such as this amp head. Both the clean & dirty channels sound great; in addition you get 3 types of reverb, which is essential to a complete & elegant sound. Need less to say it's got power.
            Have not pushed it to it's limits but at low to medium volume it sounds fantastic!

              This amp is fantastic and actually very versatile. I was looking for a decent solid state amp that could get warm, natural sounding dirty tones without being overdone like a lot of solid state amps and this is the one! Very happy with my purchase.

                For less than $500 you get 2 channels, an fx loop, a master volume, 3 reverb modes and 120 watts of analog power. May not pair well with all your dirt pedals because of that signature orange voicing. Oh, and this thing is loud. I have yet to turn the master volume past noon. Not the amp for everybody, but was the perfect choice for me. Look no further for orange amp sound on a budget.
