Orange Crush 20 Practice Combo, Black Overview
The Orange Crush 20 is Orange’s reimagining of the practice amp. Even at 20 watts, it still packs a big punch, giving you the classic Orange sound while also being portable.
The punchy and dynamic tone is possible thanks to Orange’s custom 8" Voice of the World speaker. Combined with the all-analogue circuitry, all of the components are at the highest possible quality. The perfect practice amplifier for the discerning guitarist.
It has a twin channel (dirty/clean), high gain preamp design with lots of great tonal options, from crispy clean, to Orange’s signature bluesy tube-like crunch, and an ultra-saturated high-gain metal sound without losing the richness and clarity. Switch between clean and dirty channels through the amp’s top panel or through the optional footswitch.
The 3 band EQ and Gain knob allow you to get a variety of Orange tube amp tones. The Orange Crush 20 features a custom 8" Voice of the World speaker which gives a modern low-end punch and vintage highs, and the headphone output has a Cab-Sim feature emulating the sound of a mic’d Orange 4x12 cabinet, and you can run the amp into an audio interface to record your music. The aux input lets you play along to your favourite songs by connecting your smartphone or MP3 player. It’s perfect for beginners and travelling musicians alike - more powerful than the Mini and Orange Crush 12 amps, but still extremely portable
For the best experience, partner with the Orange FS1 Footswitch (sold separately) for added functionality and control.
The twin channel Crush 20 takes an uncompromising approach to guitar tone and puts it in a compact and portable package. With footswitchable Clean and Dirty channels our new high gain, four stage preamp design serves up a huge palette of overdriven and distorted sounds, rich in harmonic overtones.
The sheer punch achieved through the Crush 20’s custom 8″ Voice of the World speaker is nothing short of staggering, with a commanding delivery that belies amp’s modest footprint. Featuring an Aux In for backing tracks and a CabSim-loaded headphone output the Crush 20 is an obvious choice for players seeking the legendary ‘Orange sound’ in a practice amp format.
