The perfect combo for practicing or recording, the Orange Amplification Crush 20RT packs that classic Orange sound, amazing sonic flexibility and a selection of killer features into a small, portable package. The Crush 20RT serves up 20-watts of power into a single 8" custom-designed Voice of the World speaker for superb clarity and a nice sonic punch even when pushed to its limits.

Designed for guitarists with a no-nonsense attitude toward quality analog tone, the Crush 20RT features an all-analog signal path to offer Orange's legendary responsive, lively tone.

With more versatility than you'd typically find in a practice amp, the Crush 20RT sports two footswitchable channels, Clean and Dirty, that can take you from lush, sparkling cleans to full-blown, high-gain metal distortion and everything in between. The high-gain preamp design boasts four gain stages to deliver an outstanding range of complex, clean, overdriven and distorted tones. Featuring high-quality, low-noise components, the high-gain preamp design offers incredible tonal richness and clarity. To fine-tune your sound to perfection, the Crush 20RT features dedicated Volume controls for each channel, a Gain control for the Dirty channel, and a powerful 3-band EQ with Bass, Mid and Treble controls.

The onboard 1/4" headphone/line output allows you to plug in headphones for silent practice sessions, and thanks to Orange's CabSim feature, you can connect your mixer/recording console through the headphone jack to capture huge, authentic Orange tones in the studio. Orange's unique CabSim feature faithfully recreates the sound of a mic'd Orange 4x12" cab that comes equipped with Orange's flagship Voice of the World speakers. A built-in Aux input allows you to plug in your MP3 or CD player and jam along with your favorite backing tracks.

Setting this amp apart from its "stripped-down" sibling, the Crush 20RT comes equipped with a luscious onboard reverb and an integrated chromatic tuner. The built-in digital reverb emulates the sound of classic "Spring"-style reverb, and can take you from a slight shimmer to incredibly spacious 'verb. The analog "dry through" circuitry ensures that your guitar's tone remains intact as the reverb is blended in. Incredibly accurate with fast tracking, the convenient onboard chromatic tuner allows you to tune-up quickly between jams.

The Crush 20RT comes complete with Orange's legendary, unmistakable styling. It boasts Orange's famed basket weave vinyl covering, a woven speaker grille cloth, Orange's signature picture frame edging and classic hieroglyphs on the control panel. Footswitch optional.

Best-sounding solid state amp I've played


This is not a tube amp. It doesn't sound like one. But I was genuinely surprised that a sub-200 dollar solid state amp could sound this good. It is totally playable and the gain sounds good enough to jam without needing pedals. Top that off with the added features like the audio out cab sim, and you've got possibly the best practice/recording/even possibly gigging amp at its price point.

Great little amp


Great amp for the bedroom! Clear tones and good distortion. The reverb is also excellent. I have owned Marshall and Line6 amps, however this little orange is my favorite. I love hooking up my strat to this thing!

Great Practice Amp


Bought this amp for playing in my house. Being a row house with 80 year old neigbors, I wanted to play without rockin the walls down. Bought the Crush35, too strong, so I traded it for the 20. Great sound, great amp for the price.






This is one of the best practice amps available! It has great natural tone as well as a ton of good features. It has Reverb, separate clean and gain channels, a 3 band EQ, built-in tuner, headphone jack, AUX input....I'm out of breathe! This amp really impresses. Did I mention, it sounds great! This is fun to use at home just for practice or it can be mic'd up for small studio sessions or even small venues. This is a real hands on product review from Zak at Sam Ash Lombard.

Bright and In Your Face!


When someone turns on an Orange amp, everyone in the immediate vicinity immediately knows that it's an Orange amp. That's the pulling power of these units. If you're in love with their characteristic tones, there really is no substitute! Just try pluggin in a guitar and hear the difference!

Awesome little amp!


With 20 watts of power, this little amp is awesome for practice at home for any level guitarist. Awesome, true analog signal path with two foot switchable channels for clean and distortion. Killer spring style reverb and a built in chromatic tuner! You can use the headphone output for quiet practice time or you can use it to run into a mixer or recording console for home recording without having to invest into a huge half stack. Top sound quality in a small package.

Great for your room


Orange has always made amazing amps and now you can have one that's perfect for your room. At 20 watts its loud enough to fully hear but not to loud that it will bother your neighbors. Built in Gain allows for that nice British crunch. Can plug a footswitch into it to switch between clean and dirty.

Great little practice amp


Orange is a great amp company and even their solid state stuff sounds amazing. It's great for practicing or playing small gigs (although you might want to mic it). The tones are great and it's pretty versatile for a tiny little amplifier. I'd definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a good practice amp.
