Most guitar amps on the market are black. Visually, players don’t often get much choice, unless they’re forking out for limited edition versions. Orange amps, on the other hand, are orange. They stand out on stage and are awesome to look at.
But Orange amps are more than just good looking. Most people who play an Orange would agree that they sound as good as they look. The Orange CR-60 exemplifies this style meets tone ethos.
Orange CR-60 Crush Pro
Orange’s first high powered, stage ready solid state amplifier is the CR-60 Crush Pro . The Orange CR-60 takes its inspiration from the twin channel circuit in the Rockverb series. The amp has been designed using only high-grade solid-state components.
Orange claim to have taken this technology and honed it to a fine point. This results in amps that deliver warm and rich tonal characteristics.
The CR-60 is a classic two channel 60 watt combo amp. It boasts portability along with a large array of high-class tones. This makes it perfect for small to medium sized venues. The amp really is the ideal “grab-and-go” unit, that any gigging guitarist can appreciate.
On the inside of the Orange CR-60, you will find the same driver found in the Orange Tiny Terror and TH30 combos. This driver is best known for its ability to seamlessly blend vintage highs with modern low-end response. To put it another way, this is one speaker that really loves to be pushed, and pushed hard.
However, just because this speaker likes to be pushed, that doesn’t mean that it can’t handle clean tones as well.
If you like a clean channel with plenty of sparkle, then the Orange CR-60 has you covered. It is a vintage inspired design with plenty of sparkle. As the volume goes up, the amp breaks into a natural bluesy kind of overdrive.
Overall this amp offers everything. From focused and crisp distortion to sparkly clean tones. And all this is wrapped in a relatively lightweight, portable grab-and-go package. And, best of all, it’s not boring to look at! For more on Orange Amplification, check out their website
