Roll Like a Rockstar Giveaway - Orange Amps

The following is available as part of the Fully-Loaded Rig for the "Roll Like a Rockstar" giveaway from Orange Amps.

CR120H

This is PERFECT FOR BAND REHEARSALS & SMALL TO MEDIUM GIGS

The new high power Crush range heralds a new dawn for Orange Amplifiers. These mark Orange’s first foray into the world of high power, solid-state amplifiers. The reason it has taken so long? We have yet to be happy with the sound, that is, until now.

Orange have spent years researching, developing and testing a solid-state amplifier which they are truly proud of. The Orange design team felt it was important to keep these amplifiers simple and not bombard the player with hundreds of on board features. The result is an analogue, solid-state, two channel (dirty and clean) amplifier based on the prestigious Rockerverb range. The dirty channel use a circuit based on four stages of gain and a three band EQ which provide the player with a wide pallet of over-driven and distorted sounds. The clean channel is based on a two stage, two band EQ design, that gives the player a clean but warm sound which when cranked begins to break up, just like a Rockerverb!

Although simplistic in its design, we have also given the amplifiers a transparent effects loop, allowing you to plug in your favourite pedals to open the amplifier up to a wide variety of situations and playing styles. Finally, the amplifier contains an inbuilt digital reverb, providing the player with a natural sounding spring, hall or plate reverb.

Like with all our amplifiers, the look had to be right, the Crush exhibit the same features as their valve based brothers which includes Orange basket-weave Tolex, woven speaker grille, beading, hieroglyphs and of course the Orange signature picture frame edging.

The Crush CR120H packs a 120 Watts into a head with the classic Orange look. The Crush CR120H has been designed to look and sound the part, be it in a rehearsal, living room or on the stage.

PPC212
CELESTION VINTAGE 30 AND RUGGED CONSTRUCTION

212 Open Back Speaker Cabinet featuring (2) 60 Watt Celestion Vintage 30 Speakers. Open Back speaker cabinets have a chimier tone with more presence, opening up the player’s sound and spreading it throughout the studio or live space.

The Orange PPC212OB speaker cabinet, like our amplifiers, is built to last using extremely rugged construction and manufacturing techniques. Every Power Projection Cabinet (PPC) is built using 13 ply high density 18mm Baltic Birch plywood. Our unique skid feet design helps to acoustically couple our cabinets to the stage, thus providing a tighter bass response and full range tone definition. The result is a laser-focused tone that’s full of warm midrange.
