Orange Crush Pro 120 CR120H Guitar Amp Head 120W (Discontinued)
This appeared on our recommended list for Guitar Amp Heads Under $500 when we first published it in June 2021 and was removed due to a lack of availability in February 2022.
Orange amps has built their reputation on providing no-frills but great sounding guitar amps, and the CR120H does exactly that, but in a more reliable solidstate format.
This amp head is based on the dirty channel of Rockerverb, reproducing its overdriven tones without using actual tubes.
The Orange Crush Pro 120 CR120H is a 2-channel solidstate amp head, rated at 120 Watts.
The first is a clean channel with 2-band EQ, and the second one is the Dirty channel which has gain and 3-band EQ controls.
It comes with 3 types of digital reverb, Plate, Spring and Hall.
Despite being a solid state amp, many people say it sounds similar to an actual tube amp. In fact we've seen reports of guitarists treating this as though it was a tube amp but without the maintenance hassles.
Note that the footswitch didn't come standard with the amp, you had to buy it separately, but if you're buying it second-hand then there's a good chance it will come with one.
If you're looking for a reliable, no frills, unpretentious guitar amp for rock music, then this is for you.
