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.

I will definitely continue to buy Orange products.


Exactly what I expected from Orange. I use this amp for practice in an apartment setting and get that great Orange tone without disturbing the neighbors. Sam Ash in Nashville didn't have one in stock but ordered it for me and 3 days later... Let the games begin. Only negative is that it didn't come with a power cord but I had an extra laying around.





Love this little amp! So loud for it's size. Jonathan at the store was a big help. Thanks!!





Great sound and built in tuner is very useful



Great value


Great sound quality for a great price! I love the built in equalizer and it has great reverb sound! Would recommend.



Thought I was sacrificing, boy was I wrong.


I went to Sam Ash with hopes of purchasing a VOX VT20. They didn't have one in stock, in desperate need of an amp, I purchased this. This thing really packs a punch you wouldn't expect. Its louder than you could ever expect with great tone on both Crunch and Clean. The reverb for this thing is amazing considering the price point and being a non valve amp. Absolutely killer amp for the price.



Want a great analog amp for cheap? Here it is


Want a great sounding amp that is fully analog and won't break the bank? You found it. These sound fantastic, take pedals great, and are extremely versatile. Anywhere from chimey Stratty sounds to chugging Metal (takes some patience to dial in for high gain though). Extremely loud despite the wattage and speaker size, yet you can still turn it down and still sound great. The 35RT has more head room and an effects loop which is great, but I live in an apartment and the 35 was just way too loud, so I went with the 20. Being about half the weight doesn't hurt either. It responds very much like a tube amp with your picking dynamics and also cleans up well. I've owned several much more expensive amps in the past and for low to mid gain stuff this is honestly my favorite



Amazing amp for the price


This amp had super clean tones and great dirty.



Excellent for the price


Let me start off by saying that I have been playing on and off for about 17 years now. I've played in bands and at home. The most expensive amp I ownerd was a Marshall MG100DFX half stack. Power and gig-ability aside, this little amp is more responsive to your settings. The gain can go from a Rolling Stones crunch to Amon Amarth chugging riffs. The headphone out with cab simulator is great, the reverb is nice, and though it can't compare to a tube amp, the fact that this is all analog makes a WORLD of difference with other solid state maps. I got rid of my Line 6 Spider IV once I bought this baby because it sounded so much better in every way. I would definitely consider buying the Crush Pro 120H head with the 2x12 cab once I move in somewhere with more room. My only minor complaint is when adjusting the volume knobs, there is a scratchy noise that comes through the speaker. Again this is only when adjusting volume, I can live with it I suppose. All in all, for under $200, Orange has managed to make a decently powered combo amp that sounds amazing for just about any type of music. You can play classic rock, blues, or crushing death metal riffs with this amp with little effort. Do yourself or your favorite guitarist a favor and add this to your cart!!

Best sound for the money


I use this amp to play at home, but it is really powerful, and could be easily used to play in a band setting too. If you are looking for a great British rock sound, this will do it. Both clean and dirty channels are very good (heavy metal capable) and the reverb is the cherry on top of the ice cream. I would like the On/off switch to be on the top instead of hidden at the back, but I can live with that. The embedded tuner is a plus too. I really recommend it.



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.
