When you think of Orange Amplification, the word ‘acoustic’ isn’t usually anywhere in sight. But here we are in an unexpected chapter for the British icon; an Orange acoustic combo, and the latest addition to its hugely successful Crush range of practice amps.
We say practice, but this is designed for performing outside of the home, too. Literally outside; as well as mains power it can be battery powered for five hours at 50% volume and eight hours at low volume. But this Orange needs a lot of juice for that – 10 AA batteries. So obviously we’d recommend an investment in rechargeables or you’ll be busking for battery money...
The Power unit is also external here rather than the much more universal ‘kettle lead’ IEC variety, so don’t lose it!
The controls are marked by icons rather than words and will be a head-scratcher to Orange newbies. The manual explains all and they’re part of Orange identity – you’ll soon learn the Bass, Treble, Mid and Gain, etc.
