The Crush-10 is a single channel 10w solid-state
combo amp, with three separate equalization controls,
(low, mid, high), a master volume control, and two
separate gain controls. It also has a headphone
output jack, which mutes the speaker when the headphones
are plugged in. I bought this little amp mainly
for practicing, and for that duty, it is very well
suited. I suppose you could mike it if you really
liked the sound that much – but for me, it
is just an “office” unit – I got
sick of hauling my big amp upstairs just to monkey
around on the guitar a bit. The amp’s sound
controls are easy to figure out and easy to adjust.
The esthetics of the unit are hard to resist – cool orange case, vintage-style grill covering,
Orange medallion. Best part of all is the amp lives
up to its legendary heritage. The sounds you can
procure from this little rig are downright amazing.
When I started playing I had a Peavey Decade 10
practice amp, which compared to this Orange amp,
sounded like a cheesy AM transistor radio. My, things
have certainly come a long way.
