dyrdyr's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A small combo troubleshooting friendly"

Orange CR12L
Tiny amp 12 watts transistor.
A guitar input, a headphone output,
3 portards equalization, gain, overdrive, a volume. One channel
This is the basic (at the same time this is what we want with this amp).

Most of this amp, it really is itty bitty.
and especially HE THE guele (this is also another reason why I took over the competition, I wanted something other than black)


Simple Config setting a bit less especially with the overdrive, let's face it, is not his strong point.


The sound is clear seen in nickel prices. We crunch quite easily. After distortion in it's gate, we soon reached the limits of the "beast" and especially his little 6 hp. it can quickly become messy, so avoid pushing gains thoroughly.


I received this little fridge yesterday ordered from Thomann for really not much. I took this amp (my first Orange for that matter) because I was looking for a complement of my head Road King, just to be able gratouiller quickly when I have little time without having to wait for the heat lamps. The Tender load was so simple, a small lightweight amp for around the house and store it in a corner, no lamps to warm-up time and maintenance, controls on top for easy adjustment and a funky color. This little amp is therefore the natural despite my fears over the distortion. At the same time, this amp is not made for that and therefore I think it will fulfill its perfect small office troubleshooting / itches fast. For the rest I have the Mesa.
Price / quality / clean finish

Roo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Orange CR12L
12W transistor
Guitar 1 entry
1 x headphones

volume control, gain, overdrive, low high med ...
no effects.

Quite nice finish. Facade aluminum, woven grill cloth I think. Quality plastics.


Super simple to use. I bought it for my students. Small, easy to store and nice neutral sound to play at low volumes.
On / Off button is located behind a little soft to the touch. Few give the impression of the game ..

The horizontal facade is really well thought out. And yes, they have finally understood that small combos have a different use of heads being placed on a stack ...


What about ... For 66 € it is suitable for all styles and no.
The sound is neutral, and quite audibly playable ... a little dry. A little reverb would surely have been an asset. One can easily assayed the volume with the gain and overdrive to find a good compromise that suits the guitar.
I can not find the super overdrive. The sound was a bit disappointed compared to the demos I saw on the internet with some models + flights.

This is an amp for beginners or study. I use it for spinning classes then.


Although the Orange logo suggests a completely different song, the value for money is beyond reproach ...
In hindsight, I would add qques euros for a model with a little more character.
