Orange Crush Acoustic 30 Combo, Black Overview
The Orange Crush Acoustic 30 is a portable 30 watt amp designed for acoustic guitar players. It’s great for busking and jamming, being lightweight (just over 6kg), and it can be battery powered, making it easy to move around. Battery life is around 3 hours on full volume, 5 hours at 50% volume, or around 8 hours at a lower volume, requiring 10 AA batteries. If you’re just practising at home, you can just plug it in with the DC adapter for unlimited playing time.
Channel 1 has a 3-band EQ, a colour switch to boost your presence, and a pad switch. Channel 2 has an XLR input for your mic (or another guitar), and a phantom power switch. Each channel has a built-in digital reverb and chorus effects, with level and blend so you can control how much of the guitar or vocals you want in the mix. The Orange Crush Acoustic 30 also has a global notch control to remove unwanted feedback, and an angled design to improve projection through the custom 8” Voice of the World speaker.
The Acoustic 30 has an aux input so you can connect a smartphone for example and play along with your favourite songs, or maybe just a backing track. In all this is a great little amp if you’re going to be performing outside, moving around a lot, and want an amp that is specially designed for acoustic guitar.
The Orange Crush Acoustic 30 amp is also available in Orange

A global notch control uses a narrow-Q filter to precisely select and remove problem frequencies, eliminating unwanted feedback.
