The closest Orange Amps has ever got to a valve sound using analogue-state circuitry!
Orange Amplification extends its Crush amps series with the launch of the Super Crush 100 head and combo, taking the now classic Crush Pro and moving it a big step further toward a more valve-like tone. The completely new design is more than just an upgrade. It delivers all the immediacy, definition and character expected from any of Orange’s top-of-the-range valve amps.
See Ty Tabor (Kings X) talking about the Super Crush 100 here:
The Super Crush 100 effectively mimics the huge, rich and responsive tone of the Orange flagship Rockerverb amps. It uses the same 100 Watt Class A/B power amp as the Pedal Baby and combined with the 2-channel JFET preamp design, it provides masses of authority and musicality which will have guitarists swearing there are valves inside! An on-board digital 24 bit reverb module provides a lush, spring reverb ambience and the fully-buffered, ultra-transparent, series FX Loop takes care of all effects needs.
Two completely independent, all-analogue preamp channels give instant access to a whole spectrum of warm, valve-like tones. From high-headroom clean to high-gain metal, every sound ever needed is dialled in with ease, thanks to a versatile circuit and intuitive simple control layout. The Dirty Channel boasts four cascading stages of proper Orange gain and the Clean Channel is a bright, vintage-flavoured, two-stage design with plenty of headroom, keeping clean tones shimmering and clear at any level.
The Super Crush 100 features a balanced XLR output with Orange’s CabSim speaker emulation technology giving instant access to great D.I. guitar tone, straight into the P.A. or recording interface. The additional rear Cab Back switch offers the choice of an open or closed back sounding cab. The compact 1×12 combo boasts a Celestion G12H-150 speaker giving it a hard-hitting, classically British voice.
Ty Tabor (Kings X) commented on the Super Crush 100 “This Is the very best transistor amp made… period. It’s my No 1. Amp for live and in the studio”.
