These little Orange amps are awesome! I've done lots of bedroom/basement close mic recording with this unit. Believe this or not, but it sounds like an Orange Tube Amp should on the clean channel when the 9vo. is between 75% and dead; a fresh battery definitely offers a different (more solid state) tone. One major thing not mentioned in the description is that it has a metal cabinet. These are 100% Orange and not lemons (p'dum tish!) like other little battery powered amps.

    I bought this for my grandson and I was impressed by its quality. It's the only mini amp I am aware of that is built just like its big brothers. It's made of real wood nor plastic like all the others I've seen. Quality at a great price.

      Excellent practice-travel amp

      By 

      from Heart of Dixie

      Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Crush PiX Series CR3 3W 1x3.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

      This amp is amazing, I travel a lot so I have to be very conservative with what I carry. Yes this amp is a little on the crunch side. However in the owners guide it says that the volume is also the gain. So if you just crack open the volume you get a very clean smooth sound. And it is still plenty loud to "practice" with. The book also says the 9 volt battery is good for 18hrs. I have not timed it but it is probably right because I played on it for about 12 days before having to change the battery, and it was not completely dead, but you begin to notice sound quality dropping for sure. So my guess in 12 days I got every bit of 18 hours out of it. And my effect pedal's power cord works just fine with it. You can use 9v-12v with it. And the tuner was an excellent idea and works great too. The con: My Guitar does not fold up as small as this thing does. How cool would that be. Overall: If you are not sure take a chance you will not regret it. And as far as the volume goes it is really just a GAIN adjustment. The volume is not much different cracked a little to being ready to rock, in "practice" mode, there is no venue mode lol, for all you over critical goobs.

      Sounds better through headphone jack

      By 

      from Towson, MD

      Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Crush PiX Series CR3 3W 1x3.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

      The amp sounds okay... it's very hard to get clean tones out of it though. However, if you use the headphone jack, it sounds 10x better.

      Unreasonable distortion on clean channel

      By 

      from Elk Grove, CA

      Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Crush PiX Series CR3 3W 1x3.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

      The clean channel should be clean. With this price, I shouldn't have to buy a separate power supply. Nice concept, but needs a lot of improvement.

      Unacceptable clean

      By 

      from Elk Grove, CA

      Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Crush PiX Series CR3 3W 1x3.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

      The clean has a lot of distortion. At first, I thought it might be the battery, and I so I changed the battery, plugged it in. I tried everything I could think of. Still there was distortion. I thought it was just this unit, so I tested out another one at Guitar Center. Other reviews mention this problem, too. So I just returned it.

      Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Crush PiX Series CR3 3W 1x3.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

      Build quality is average. It works. The clean does not sound clean. If I turn the distortion up past half way, it sounds like the battery is going out, and I bought this thing brand new. Not sure if the battery is full or not. For this price, I would expect a power supply.

      Expensive.

      By 

      from California

      Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Crush PiX Series CR3 3W 1x3.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I went and bought this as a recommendation from an associate. At first, it was kind of cool to have that tiny amplifier that can fit in a backpack. Then it started getting expensive since it eats through those 9v batteries really fast. I would use this little amp for practice before gigs when all my gear was on stage waiting for me. I do like the headphone jack, the portability, and the look of the thing. I just wish it were cheaper.

      Little Amp, Big sound

      By 

      from ann arbor

      Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Crush PiX Series CR3 3W 1x3.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

      This little 3 watt amp kicks butt! I went through several options for bringing my Strat on the road, with plug in amps that hook to your headphones, and have never been pleased with the quality of sound. It packs well, It's durable, and it is powerful. I've never used it above a 3-level on the volume in my hotel room, in fear of getting complaints from the other guest. The tuner is great, and the overdrive has a nice sound. I bought the 9 volt plug, (1 spot) which works great, but the 9 volt battery,works well too.
