Orange Crush 30R Combo Amp
Questions and Answers
I'm about to get my first electric guitar and i am thinking of getting either a epiphone SG or a jackson dinky guitar and i know these are pretty cheap which will be good to get as a good first guitar, the amp i was going to spend i bit more on as this way i will get the best sound possible out of these beginner guitars and then eventually as i progress i may move on to a better guitar which i can again get a good sound out of them with the good amp.
I was thinking about getting an orange crush amp and the two i have found are…
– Orange Crush PiX CR20L Combo Amp: £89
-Orange Crush PiX CR20LDX Combo With Digital Effects: £127
the CR20LDX has digital effects and a built in tuner which mainly attracted me to it, is this really worth the extra £40?
Or would you not recommend this amp at all? This is just for home use so i think 20 watts would be perfect however i have no experience so i really wouldn't know, just guessing.
Is there any other amps (preferably around this price range or cheaper) that you would recommend?
And also if it doesn't have a tuner in what tuner would you recommend? Or would a pedal have a built in tuner?
If i was to save some money on the amp i may be able to get a better guitar, if i can what guitar would you recommend?
Questions and Answers
I own an Orange Crush PiX CR20LDX Guitar Combo Amplifier which was recently transported in the back of a trailer with no cushioning. As a result, something has shorted on the gain / distortion channel. When switched from the clean to gain, it still sounds like the clean, but with a weak fuzz underneath, even when at max volume. Before it sounded full, as it should. Will i need a type of fuse to repair? Curious what a basic fix would be, as i'd like to attempt on my own before taking to a repair shop, to learn the working of the amp if nothing else. Otherwise i will take to repair. Thank you for your help!
If you had a problem with a fuse, the amp would be dead…no output what so ever.
There's a lot of things that could be wrong with the amp…and it's just not possible to guess what the problem is without having it on a bench and doing some rudimentary tests.
It's not a tube amp, so changing those isn't an option.
Unless you know what you're doing and have the proper equipment to diagnose and repair the amp, you're going to do more harm than good trying to work on it yourself. I've had a lot of amps come through me that if the owners had left them alone it would have been a $50 repair. Since they jacked with the amp, it turned into a $150+ repair.
Of course, your amp is not that expensive (about $160 new street price), so you have to weigh whether it's worth repairing or not.
