Product Description

No one likes a little showoff... oh who are we kidding - EVERYONE loves this little showoff. Check out the Orange CR3 mini combo amp. Smaller than a bag of actual oranges, this little amp's got way-huge tone. Just pop in a 9V and you're good to go. Pushing a 4" speaker with a mere three watts, the sound of the CR3 is still 100% Orange all the way. And unlike other so-called mini amps, the CR3's got a full set of controls, including volume, tone, and overdrive. There's even a tuner and a headphone output on the CR3. And to top it all off, the CR3 is made of the same wood, covered in the same surfacing, and features the same grille cloth found on most Orange amps. How cool is that!?

This little amp makes a big sound!

This totally solves al build quality issues, so it looks as well build as my Roland cube, but with more of a vintage look.

I was looking for a small practice amp since I live in a tiny apartment and this one fit the bill.

Is was a little concerned about the build quality of this amp, I watched some reviews online and found a video review where a guy complained about the build quality, so I was a little worried about it. But when it arrived all concerns went away, obviously the new amplifiers being shipped already tackled this construction issue, what they did is they still build it out of wood, but now they have an external (kind of a vinyl) layer simulating something similar to the speaker mesh, but in orange ( like some other big amps have). This totally solves al build quality issues, so it looks as well build as my Roland cube, but with more of a vintage look.

Volume wise, Is a LOT louder than the marshal mini amp, which I also own, I normally used my Roland Cube 20w to practice, which I loved because it has a "power squeezer" feature which converted it to a 2w amp, which is loud enough for any practice session, specially at home. well, this micro crush is even louder than the cube @ 2w. So volume wise is perfect for practice, will not match to acoustic drums, but is pretty loud for solo practice or warmup.

sound wise, this is where this amp shines the most, the clean channel sound pretty good if you keep the guitar volume to 3/4 ( this is probably because I,m using Texas specials pickups which are pretty hot and shiny. But as long as I keep the guitar volume there, the clean channel is really clean, with a little tweed feel to it. If I crank the guitar volume on the clean channel, I get a little overdrive if I play hard.

The overdrive channel sounds amazingly good, really rich overdrive with a blues feel to it, lots of tone options with the tone know ( good to see a real tone control in such a small amp).

This Amp is EXCELLENT! for being as small as it is, it packs quite a punch. I purchased this amp to use with my Microkorg and a few prototype synth's i'm building. Aside from a little distortion at high volume (expected), this thing packs a punch. Having the ability to use either a wall wart or battery is really convenient for on the go musicians but you'll will have to purchase a wall wart for this thing if you don't want to use a 9v battery, sadly one isn't included.

WARNING: Please if you're considering purchasing this amp, do yourself and your wallet a favor, don't buy it from "Wehaveitreadytoship" they are charging DOUBLE for this amp. It's absolutely pathetic what some companies will do to turn a buck these days.

Unbelievable that you can get real amp tones out of something so small. Rocks the house dimed out, and very sweet clean tones dialed back. I've had mine for over a year, and I'm more impressed every time I use this little gem. Don't waste your time with the little Marshalls or Fenders--this is in a whole different universe, and well worth the extra $$.

I've been a musician for most of my life, playing primarily keyboards recently in the studio and with bands, saxophone and a little bass guitar. I've owned a six string guitar for 20+ years that has seen very little use. I had this misconception that my hands "just weren't designed to play guitar". But recently my life changed a little bit. I have a young boy that's now master of my universe, a lot less room to leave musical gadgets lying about, and I now live in an apartment building where making a lot of noise tends to be frowned upon.

I picked up this Micro Crush because I was originally looking for a micro Marshall and I saw this pop up. I knew I already liked the sound of Orange amps (better than Marshall given my druthers of musical taste) and for $69 it seemed like not much of a reach to try it out for myself.

Shortly after a small package of value came to me with this charmingly tiny amp in it. My son's mom thought it was a toy "it's so small!" Yes you might think so until you plug it in. The idea here is to sound loud without being loud. This amp is perfect for that.

Most of the time I have this thing turned up to about 1, 1 1/2, rarely up to 2 or beyond. I've got a simple effect chain going in: EH Soul Preacher (compressor/sustainer) -> MX Analog delay -> Cheap (but pleasant) Chinese Phaser -> EH Holy Grail -> Amp. I use this as my "clean" sound without the overdrive. It is beautiful. A little Dick Dale-ish. Then when I want a little edge I turn off the phaser and delay and turn on the overdrive. Maybe nudge down the volume a little more and I can rock AC/DC licks at midnight without raising complaints from the neighbors. And it sounds ... BIG!

No this is not the same as actually BEING loud.

This little guy was seemingly designed to sound like an Orange Crush on 12. It does a good job of that but not much else.
Use your volume control on your guitar as a gain control (overdrive control) and adjust the Micro Crush's volume as needed.
The higher the volume on your guitar the more "crunch" your sound will have ...

PS. Keep A LOT of batteries on hand. You only get about 5-6 hours on a brand new battery!!! Better yet, get the 9-volt adapter ...
