ORANGE "CR120H" 120 watt Guitar Amp Head
Used maybe twice in the practice room, like new, still in the box.
Super easy to use, gnarly distortion, a classic for punk/metal/hardcore.
Loud, a sturdy as hell built amp, with great versatility,
I don't use it and someone else should get to enjoy it..
ORANGE CR120H Solid-State Amp Head
The wait for a solid-state Orange amp head is over. Orange took its time tweaking its design for the CR120H, and ended up with a sound worthy of the Orange name. This two-channel treat is based on Orange's celebrated Rockerverb series, projecting a warm and clear clean tone, and a layered distortion that breaks up nicely when turned up. In addition to a transparent effects loop, your CR120H comes with onboard digital reverb with plate, hall, or spring settings. It's also dressed in Orange's familiar design and color.
Same Orange Look, New Solid-State Interior:
The CR120H Crush sports Orange's textural basket weave Tolex. On the inside you get reliable circuitry that pumps out that decades-old sought-after Orange sound, and this time, it's solid state. Orange spent considerable time working with designs to make a solid-state amplifier that stands up strongly to their infamous tube sound spanning over half a century, so you can count on consistently hearing a superior tone when you plug in and play.
The front panel of the CR120H head hosts volume, treble, middle, bass, and gain knobs for your distorted channel, and volume, treble, bass, and gain knobs for your clean channel. Master volume and reverb knobs sit right next to each other to give you easy access to your onboard reverb and master output signal level. Footswitch inputs for reverb and channel settings make switching seamless and easy.
Stages of Gain:
The solid-state design of your CR120H harnesses stages of gain that break up your signal for each of your channels. Your signal going through your clean channel has two stages of gain, and your dirty channel provides four stages of gain. When you push your signal to a hotter level, a nice and crisp signal breakup comes through. Play with your gain settings to see what particular gain level suits your personal sonic signature.
Orange CR120H Crush Guitar Amp Head
The high-power Orange CR120H Crush Guitar Amplifier Head heralds a 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? Orange Amplifiers wasn't 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 analog, 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 overdriven 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!
Orange has also given the CR120H Crush a transparent effects loop, allowing you to plug in your favorite pedals to open the amplifier up to a wide variety of situations and playing styles. Finally, the amplifier contains an built-in digital reverb, providing the player with a natural sounding spring, hall or plate reverb.
Like with all Orange amplifiers, the look had to be right. The Crush exhibit the same features as their valve-based brothers which includes Orange basket-weave Tolex, 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.

Our commitment to analogue amplifier circuitry in a digital age ensures that the Crush Pro 120 head possess the lively feel and responsiveness that Orange is famous for, inspiring guitarists to play their instruments, not the technology.
TWIN CHANNEL, HIGH GAIN PREAMP DESIGN
Our high-gain preamp design puts a truly inspiring range of complex tones in the hands of the player. High quality, low noise components provide four stages of gain with exceptional richness and clarity. The result is amps that deliver everything from blissful cleans, to classic Bluesy Orange crunch all the way through to full-bodied, ultra high gain Metal distortion. Clean and Dirty channels can be switched on the amp’s top panel or remotely using the optional footswitch.
BUFFERED EFFECTS LOOP
For players who love their pedals, the Crush Pro 120 head has a fully buffered, low impedance loop allowing for any number of effects and cables to be patched between the amp’s input and output sections without sacrificing tone. Our attention to detail here means your pedal arsenal will perform to its absolute peak.
YOU CAN RUN ONE OF THREE CAB CONFIGURATIONS ON THE CRUSH PRO 120 HEAD:
– One 16 ohm cab connected to one of the speaker outputs.
– Two 16 ohm cabs connected to both speaker outputs, or daisy-chained together to one of the speaker outputs.
– One 8 ohm cab connected to one of the speaker outputs.
It’s better to not daisy-chain, in case the first cable or cab in the chain were to fail during a performance; then you’d lose all your sound. Running a separate cable to each cab insures at least one cab will still be going if a speaker cable or cab fails during a performance. Use the Orange FS2 to switch reverb on and off and change channels.
