Overview

The Orange Crush CR60C is a 60W solid-state combo made from 18mm ply and loaded with a single 12? 60W, 16 Ohm Voice of the World speaker. The Voice of the Worlds combined with the analogue solid-state circuitry gives the CR60C the tonal clarity and definition players adore in an Orange amplifier.

The Crush CR60C combo 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. The Crush CR60C features Orange basket-weave Tolex, woven speaker grille, beading, hieroglyphs, and of course the Orange signature picture frame edging.

Features
  • Two channel
  • Digital reverb
  • Clean channel controls: Volume, Bass and Treble
  • Dirty channel controls: Volume, Bass, Middle, Treble and Gain
  • Global controls: Volume and Reverb
  • 60W

To make a long story short, I was in a catch 22 situation. I wanted to get involved with a band, but I was currently using a Blackstar HT5 that didn't quite cut it with a drummer. But I didn't need a higher wattage amp if I wasn't in a band. So I didn't want to spend a ton, but I also didn't want to buy something cheap and lousy. I was looking for something that I could crank and play with a band, but would also sound good at lower volumes around the house (I live in a townhouse).

I went into Guitar Center and ABY'ed a Marshall DSL40C, a Blackstar HT40 Club, and the CR60. After going back for 2, 3 hour sessions, and driving the guys at the store nuts, I chose the Orange. All three sounded great. I felt the Blackstar was too similar to the HT5. I wanted to try something else. I liked the Marshall, but even with the half power switch, it just needed to be pushed a bit too much to get "that sound."

The Orange sounded good at a range of volumes and just had a different kind of sound that I liked. It has that "British Tone" but a bit a little more raw than the Marshall or the Blackstar. With the gain around noon, it's got a nice crunchy tone. A little past that, it's pretty rockin'. Past that, it gets a bit muddy, but is good for chuggy rhythm stuff. It loses a bit of definition at the highest gains, but you can tighten it up with an overdrive pedal for more defined parts. The amp takes pedals really well; modulation, drives. I played a few times with pretty hard hitting drummers and didn't have to turn the master past noon or 1 o'clock.

I've had some high watt tube amps in the past (Mesa, Sovtek), plus the lower watt HT5. The CR60 obviously lacks the harmonics of a tube amp, it's not a tube amp. That said, it sounds great. When you crank it, it really pushes some air and gets a good thump. The standard speaker is nice and beefy. I AB'ed this with an Orange OR15. It didn't sound identical, but it had the same character, especially with a 1x12 extension cab. And don't dis solid state. Think about how many people have a tube amp, but use a Boss Metal Zone or BigMuff or other distortion pedal ... solid state drive.

For my needs it's perfect. Plenty loud, sounds great, smallish footprint, good value, no maintenance.

I checked out one of these amps a local Blues musician was trying to sell. Now I know why he wanted to sell it. Won't go into details. I will say it wasn't that amp was bad or anything. The clean was about average for a SS amp, I could get a good basic vintage Rock and Blues sound, for Jazz and other clean guitar it just didn't excite me much. Reverb was okay. Get a Roland if you want good clean for Jazz or better yet a Fender SS amp in same price range, but they don't have the Orange "coolness" to them. Other wise, if your into Hard Rock, Metal or you don't ever play clean guitar the OD channel is your puppy, You'll dig it. The speaker didn't impress me much, which may be part of the problem. I would have liked to hook-up the Jensen in my Deluxe Reverb and gave a listen, but it's a 16 ohm speaker and my amp is 8 ohms, not sure it would sound like it should. For some this will be a great amp. I think it's well built and should last along time.

    Comments about Orange Amplifiers Crush Pro CR60C 60W Guitar Combo Amp:

    Sounds great with most guitars. Reverb settings are cool. Warm clean sounds and can get heavy dirty distortion for metal sounds. Can get loud enough for gigs or whatever your volume needs may be (would need to mic for bigger venues).

          Comments about Orange Amplifiers Crush Pro CR60C 60W Guitar Combo Amp:

          Really cool amp. Probably one of the best solid state amps ever made. Never heard a better on-board overdrive/gain/distortion on a combo amp. To my ears sounds almost just like an orange tube amp. The on-board reverb is also awesome. Comes with plate, hall and spring settings. That being said, i sold this amp and bought a Roland JC 40 instead. Not because i didnt like it though. This thing is a little beast. Im just someone who relies more on effects pedals and my priority is the clean tone of an amplifier. The clean channel on this leaves a little bit to be desired for me. Its a bit muddy like an orange tube clean. Which is fine and some people love it. Simply a matter of preferece. I went with the JC 40 for the pure, bright clean tones and amazing on-board chorus. But the on board distortion and reverb on the orange blows the roland out of the water! Youll love this thing if you play with alot of dirt! Would absolutely recommend to a friend based on preference of course!

              I gig 2 to 3 times a month in local clubs. And though I prefer tube amps, there are times when a nice portable ss amp can do the job. This Orange does the job in spades! I leave my tubes home now because I get all the crispy cleans and crunch I need for a classic rock cover band.

                Comments about Orange Amplifiers Crush Pro CR60C 60W Guitar Combo Amp:

                I just wanted to follow up on my earlier review of this amp. It's really a nice amp. I've been playing with some guys and it stands up well. Our drummer plays really hard and he's asked me to turn it down. The other guitarist uses a Blackstar HT-40 and it has no trouble keeping up. It has a nice bite to the clean channel when it's cranked. Not overdriven, but not Fender-y. Just a little hair that sounds great when you are kicking off the drive. It's not as 'jarring' as going from raw drive to crystal clean. I reiterate how well an OD pedal works with the amp's drive to let you sculpt your tone anywhere from ripping, sludgy grind to a nice crispy crunch.

                On this second review I gave it 5 stars because I've played it with people. I can't knock a star off for not sounding like a tube amp, because it's not. But it's also two grand less than its 'tube equal.' You could get a Marshall or Blackstar for a few Benjamins more, but if you want Orange tone at a loud enough volume, it's a killer option.

                  I have the black CR60C and I absolutely love it! I use it to jam with friends, practice at home, basic recording, and small gigs. The CR60C has great tones to it. It has a great warm and full clean tone to it as well as a pretty good dirty channel to it. Now, I say pretty good because for the style of music I play (which is pretty extreme) it just doesn't get heavy enough for that. Although if I am playing with friends outside of metal music and I have my Fender Jaguar then the Dirty channel is great for a more "fuzz" type of tone. For my metal playing I am using a LTD MH-350FR. This amp also has a nice Reverb on it. Which you can select from: Plate, Hall, and Spring. I use the spring in a small amount most of the time otherwise I have a Mr. Black Supermoon Pedal that use instead.

                  This amp will do everything I want from it, it has a few great tones, and it certainly gets loud enough!
