Practice amps need not be complicated to be effective, and this is exemplified by the success of Orange Crush 12.

Unlike other practice amps that are packed with amp models and effects, this one sticks to Orange' distinct dirt tone, and based on reviews, users love this amp's easy plug-and-play design.

Rated at 12 Watts and with a 6" speaker, this amp has enough juice for personal practice and even for a small group jams.

Controls follow classic amp setup with 3-band EQ and volume, the main difference is the ability to adjust overdrive and gain independently in addition to the volume knob.

  • Power Rating: 12-Watts
  • Speaker Size: 6”

  • Controls: Volume, Treble, Middle, Bass, Overdrive, Gain

Pros
Many are impressed with how good this amp sounds, especially when considering its small 6" speaker. And the ease of getting good tone is also mentioned by users who use different guitar models and playing styles. It is also often commended for its durability and reliability.

Cons
Aside from its default Orange tone, there's not much room to play with, so this is is not ideal for those who want to try different voicings and effects right on the amp.

Overall
If you're looking for a great sounding overdriven amp with a price tag that'll be easy to justify, then this is for you.
