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.

Great on clean, but just decent on overdrive. Good little amp

By Chris

from STL, MO

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

Great for small spaces and to travel with. It gets very loud which is a definite plus for just a 3w little amp. My only problem with this thing is the overdrive and tone you get with the amp. This is not a real Orange amp! Infact, it is OUTSOURCED From CHINA (not made in England like all the other True Orange amps). All in all, for the price and the sound this amp cranks out it still is a steal! If you want something that sounds better on overdrive and distortion to go with it, I recomend something else for an amp that has at least 10+watts! But the Orange Micro crush has some of the best clean sounds that any amp in its class can put out!

YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! plus it has that sexy orange appeal...

buy for portability

By Jeff

from Cincinnati ohio

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

For the price you can buy something that sounds better.... But it wont be as portable.Where this amp excels is taking it to lessons. You can throw it in your bag and not worry about plugging it in to an outlet. It's built sturdy and it produces a clean sound (although it's tinny because of the small speaker). The overdrive is weak, but you can hook your effects pedals up to it and get a reliable sound. It's the best tiny amp you can get. But it sounds small and you can't avoid that.... It's a 4inch speaker after all! Also the built in tuner in nice for a quick tune before the lesson. If you don't care about lugging around a larger amp then get something else. But if space and portability are a concern.... Then this is it!

Great sound, but had to take the first one back.

By Jason Temple

from Kansas City, KS

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

Great little amp with great sound using a Fender Strat. Gives a great sound through both channels with a built in tuner. First one worked great but the tuner quit working. Took it back to the store and they replaced it with no problem. I love the look and sound of this amp, we will see if that tuner holds up.

Expensive.

By Bryant Seavey

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.

Excellent practice-travel amp

By jon parnell

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.

Little Amp, Big sound

By James Cavanaugh

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.

I expected more

By Cher Chou Moua

from Elk Grove, CA

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.

Unacceptable clean

By Joshua Moua

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.

Unreasonable distortion on clean channel

By Joshua Moua

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.

    Drove a distance to purchase this and it ended up defective. Would not power on. New 9 volt battery didn't work and a power adapter didn't help either. Annoyed.

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

          This is one of the two mini amps I have actually thought sounded like good amps. It does sound better with DC power and can be plugged into a pedal board 9v power supply. If you like the crunch of an Orange amp and could use something that sounds good at a volume that does not require ear plugs, then this is a good practice amp for you. If you would rather have a crisp clean guitar sound without the crunch you should check out the Blackstar fly 3w.

            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.

            Sounds better through headphone jack

            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.
