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.

Features
  • Power: 120W (solid state)
  • Two channels
  • Digital reverb
  • Clean channel controls: Volume, Bass and Treble
  • Dirty channel controls: Volume, Bass, Middle, Treble and Gain
  • Global controls: Volume and Reverb
  • Impedance: 2x16 ohms
  • Dimensions: 21.65" x 22.5" x 9.84"
  • Weight: 31.75 lbs.

The best sounding solid state head I have ever owned. I own 3 other Orange tube heads including a Rockerverb 50. Orange nails their signature tone with the CR120H! I have used this head live at real shows in 2000 plus seater venues for the past 2 weeks. Our fans who are guitar players cannot believe that it's a solid state and are blown away by the tone. It has massive amounts of quality gain. This amp is no toy. It is the real deal.

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.

I HAVE TO AGREE WITH TODD

By Kenny Howell

from IL

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

I think Orange did an AWESOME job with this one. This solid state beast replaced a Mustang V V.1 head that had trouble with the headphone jack and kept causing the speaker to cut in and out. NO headphone jack on this baby and that is fine with me because it means there is less to go wrong with it. Just plain and simple to operate. No complicated digital signal processing, No software problems that you have to update every time you turn around. Simple to use master volume and master reverb controls plus separate volume and eq controls for each channel. Run 2x16 ohm cabs or 1x8 ohm cab. Love the effect loop option - takes pedals well. Any old 1 btn. ft. switch can change channels for ya or a 2 btn. will change channels and switch reverb on and off. Orange did it right. Todd was right. I bought the black one because I really didn't care for all the orange. I was going to buy the OR15 but I'm glad I waited. WAY TO GO ORANGE!

    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.

    Great Orange Amplifier !

    By rooney

    from Kissimmee, Florida

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

    Just picked up the amp last week, very impressed! Lots of guitar players have multiple amps for different gigs and practice locations. I've been mostly using tube combo's through the years and this is my second amp head purchase. For me, the new CR120 was a perfect match for my 410 8ohm Marshall cabinet. Wow, no problem w/ volume or bottom end at all, anything louder used on an indoor gig would probably be an unwelcome stage volume. On both clean and dirty channels I like the volumes set at 2 o'clock and the master anywhere between 10 and 12 (gain also at 12) Perfect size and weight, great distortion tone, a hint of chime on the clean. This is a quality built product and could easily stand the test of time. Have not missed the tube tones at all. Thanks Orange!

    Best Solid State Head

    By RICHARD

    from Linden, MI

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

    To add to the other reviews, I was looking for a solid state amp to replace my tube amps. Why? I didn't want the hassle of tube maintenance anymore. My understanding of this amp is that it is an all analog amp with the exception of the reverb, same design as the Rockerverb with the exection of using Op-Amps (Operational Amplifiers) instead of tubes. I'm using it with a Orange 212 cab with Celestion V30s. Pedals- Whah and OD pedals this the front a tone/delay pedals in the FX loop. Using a Setzer Gretsch, Strat Plus and a Tele Delux. Great tone? You bet.

    Sounds better than or the same as a tube amp

    By Sharon

    from Madison, Connecticut

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

    This is probably one of the best sounding heads I have ever used. When I plugged it in, I thought it was a Marshall or Mesa Boogie, but with that warm Orange sound. It is a solid-state, analog amp with 3 types of digital reverb (that sound incredible by the way). It is based of the Orange Rockerverb, but there are no tubes in it. It definitely sounds like there are though. One of the things I like most about this amp is that is has no tubes. You don't have to worry about buying new tubes and there is less that can go wrong inside. It is 100% maintenance-free. Although it is 120 watts, it is still a great bedroom amp and it is more than powerful enough to gig with. There are two channels, clean and dirty. The clean channel is outstanding. Like I said before, it sounds just like a tube amp. It is very bright, but also very warm. With a separate volume control for the channel aside from the master volume, you can also get a crunchier tone out of it. It is very pick sensitive which enables you to vary your tone with just your hand. The dirty channel is just as impressive. It delivers that classic Orange tone. It is a little bottom heavy, but that might be because I use it with Orange's open back 2x12 cab. I'm sure it will sound just as good on any other cab. I play a lot of Green Day, Blink-182, Led Zeppelin, and AC/DC and it delivers their tones without a sweat. It allows you to sound just like them. The only two cons about are its very heavy and it could be a little less bottom heavy. Overall, it is an outstanding amp that sounds just like a valve amp, but for half the price.

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

    I've played various tube and solid state amps over the years, so I know what I like in an amp. This is the best solid state amp I've owned. Mind you, it has that Orange tone, so if you want that ultra high gain metal sound, go 6505. I love the distortion and clean tones. I use an overdrive pedal to push the amp a bit and it works great for me and my needs (ambient/rock/metal). I hate saying 'for the price this is great'. Its great regardless, but for the price its a steal. Ill probably end up buying the black tolex one because I like this amp so much.

    No digital sounding amp here

    By Glen

    from Long Beach Ca.

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

    This is a great amp head, It took a little to get use to. It has a lot bass and bottom end to it. But that turned out to be a good thing. The clean channel is nice and clear with my strat. You can hear your picking action very well and with the reverb at noon and wow! It has spring, hall, and plate. I like it on hall. The reverb is the only thing that is digital on the amp but sounds very good. The rest is all analog so you can cut through the mix and it won't be all fuzzy and digital like most other soiled state amps. Then there is the dirty side with enough gain for most metal players. Great with humbuckers pickups. Effects loop in back for your pedals, what more can you ask for the price.

    Good amp

    Verified Buyer

    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.

      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.
