ORANGE Amps Introduces New Crush PiX
Posted by Michael Mueller on June 24, 2009 at 5:36 PM
Orange Amplification has quite a pedigree, having been in the backlines of Tony Iommi, Jimmy Page, and other seminal classic rock guitarists in the '70s. In recent years, the brand has experienced quite a renaissance, finding its way into the rigs of Jim Root (Slipknot), Prince, and Daniel Davies (Year Long Disaster), among others. And now, Orange have drawn upon more than 40 years of amplifier construction expertise to improve the range of Crush amplifiers to ensure they are as equally at home on a tour bus as they are in a bedroom.
The new Orange Crush PiX range of amps now extend from the Crush PiX CR12L through to the new 100 watt CR100 BXT, offering a multitude of choices covering a total of eight models. Incorporating all of the style you would expect to see in Orange amplifiers, the Crush amps include genuine Orange grill cloth, miniature Orange crest finish, signature Orange picture frame edging, exterior beading and the unique, easy-to-follow hieroglyph symbols.
Key upgrades include:
• More power within the same size frames (e.g., they added 5 watts to the CR15R, which is now the CR20LDX)
• New built-in guitar tuner and integrated digital FX with choice of 16 cool sounds on the CR20LDX and CR35LDX models
• CR50 BXT upwards have Aux input for MP3/CD for jamming along with your favourite recordings
• New CR100 BXT with 100 Watts RMS, class D amplifier, 15" speaker, tuner, and MP3 input.
The new Orange Crush PiX range will be debuted at the Orange booth at the forthcoming summer NAMM show in Nashville.
