Orange Amps Announces Crush Acoustic 30

With over 50 years of experience in great guitar tone and quality, the Crush Acoustic 30 is Orange’s entry into the world of acoustic amplification. At ease in any situation, this lightweight, portable, battery powered acoustic combo continues the Orange tradition of simple but versatile design.

With a customer speaker, angled cabinet and 30 Watts of power, the Crush Acoustic 30 is a great companion for busking, gigs, or practice. Two channels, built-in effects an a feedback-busting notch filter take care of all the details, leaving you free to work your magic.


Optimized for acoustic guitar, this channel features a 1/4” jack input and a 3-band active EQ. A -10dB Pad switch helps guarantee a clean signal with higher output instruments while the Colour switch adds a treble boost and a slight mid scoop, great for livening up dull pickups or finding your place in the mix.


With an XLR/jack combi input, this channel can be used for a second guitar signal or as a dedicated microphone input. The Mic/Line switch selects between XLR and jack inputs and +48V Phantom Power lets you use your favorite studio microphones.


The on-board digital effects processor can add a range of Reverb or Chorus sounds individually to each channel. Easy to use controls dial in a variety of tonnes in seconds. A global notch control uses a narrow-Q filter to precisely select and remove problem frequencies, eliminating unwanted feedback.


The full-range, 8” Voice of the World speaker is designed specifically for Crush Acoustic 30. Coupled with its efficient Class D power amp delivering 30 Watts, this bespoke speaker’s natural presence will cut through any crowd.


A Buffered FX Loop 1/4” Line output balanced XLR out give you all the connections you need, even for complicated rigs. A 3.5mm Aux-In jack can be used to connect a smartphone, tablet or similar audio device, allowing you to play along to backing tracks.


The Crush Acoustic 30 is the perfect amp to use on the go. The battery compartment takes 10 AA batteries, giving you 3 hours of power at full volume, 5 hours at 50% volume and 8 hours at low volume. The Crush Acoustic 30 can also be powered by the supplied DC adaptor, which disconnects the batteries when it use.

From clean to heavy high gain, there’s no shortage of Orange mojo. Touch-sensitive dynamics and lush harmonic overtones sing out of this amp with such authority and musicality that you’d swear there were valves inside!
