All user reviews of 5/5 for the Orange CR35LDX
However, this is one of the most impressive amp modeling units I have ever seen. It sounds very real and articulate much like a real tube amp would respond. The built in effects are solid and the distortion sounds much like the distortion you would hear from real Orange amps. Orange has a distinct tube distortion that crosses the lines throughout all of their products. It is British voiced but distinctly Orange.

This is definitely a practice amp. You wouldn't record with this ting most likely and you wouldn't go on stage with it either, but holy cow this thing sounds great for bedroom or office jamming. It comes with a headphone out so you can quietly jam by yourself at home or in the office.
I like this amp with just about any guitar application. I especially like it with a Strat or a Les Paul or other humbucking style pickup. Or even a Superstrat of some kind. Any guitar you throw at it will sound amazing! The amp is voiced quite well to be a solid state amp and that is the best part.
With on board effects and a built in tuner this amp has it all for on the go jamming or just light bedroom playing. Just grab your guitar and amp and you are off. You have a built in tuner so no need to bring that along or any effects. Any probably best of all it has a line out for direct recording or going straight into a PA system. I haven't tried that but I can imagine that it does quite well if comparison to the rest of the amp.
At new these amps come in at around $240 which is a steal for the what it does and how good it sounds. I recommend anyone who needs a nice practice amp or something to jam quietly while you baby is sleeping.

WiR's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Just great!"
Aesthetics: Pretty, everyone tells me hehe!
Using super simple: Plug And Play.
Well done to understand the work that the gain for the clean channel and the overdrive channel. And used to the knob Overdrive gauge upstream of the overdrive sound while the gain defines the overdrive (from soft to hardue).
It is relatively easy to obtain the desired sound.
According to what is the metal, it needs an effects pedal to push in this area there is clear. It is more typical blues, rock, hard blues.
It should totally my style of music (blues rock, hard blues).
It's simple, when I tested it, it was out of curiosity, I've never seen a small Orange at this price. I was not at all to buy it, but testing it, I found it so nickel (no kidding!) That I took. But I'm not Rottschild and it's not my style to engage in compulsive buying!
The sound is very typical Orange simply. You sound an Orange amp lamp but a transistor, so small volume too! Frankly, I love it!
This is the sound of nickel to play Blues Rock (via a soft blues rock, a Gary Moore aggressive).
The égualisation is very effective! It has a huge impact on the sound, it does not randomly dose. I believe all the versatility of this amp is in his égualisation! Nickel!
I use a Gibson Les Pauls Studio Faded, it sends! I also tested with a Stratocaster quality is also great, really!
What I like with this amp:
Turn the overdrive (knob at bottom) and put the gain between noon and 3 o'clock. It put more delay (300ms) with the effect knob at 7:30, 8h (ie between 1 line or 2 line). And now I love it! It has forged the idea of "my sound" that I want!
The delay is the fact that I prefer, it is really great with overdrive, it sublime solos, really give depth to the sound. It is simple, since I use this delay, I do not remove more and I try to find a pedal that would be able to imitate (no I'm not exaggerating!). This is a digital delay apparently, but that sounds relatively analog, because rehearsals are dark and very hot. Ideal for solos, in my opinion.
But the delay can also be used to play songs with repetitions clear when you push the knob effect at noon, you can play stuff like "Big Sur Moon" Buckethead.
What I love!
I use it for a little less than a year now.
I tried a lot of amp before buying, because I was looking for one (roland cube is nice but relatively small), then I was not looking for an amp lamp or special transistor, I tested all in this area, staying in a price range not too large (must not exceed 300 €). Since at the time of purchase I had no pretensions or group stage.
I love this amp sound, the character of the amp, the grain he and his delay (even if the reverb and other effects are good too, but I do not use them too).
Only thing that would have been nickel: An independent reverb, and there it was the most's MOST transistors.
Level quality / price is great! In Cygnus', we can find the price of a big pedal effect, so good!
The overdrive is good, well-defined, not messy, hot.
The clean is good and well-rounded.
The effects are very inspiring qualities.
A transistor amp great with a great sound. I've used it with a group (guitar + bass + drums + singing + me). And I'd get to hear!
Now I'll spend on it the ultimate test:
Group play with this amp with a pedalboard front.
But until my pedalboard is complete, I leave the notice as is!
A superb amp!

janobiwan's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
A clear channel and a drive channel.
I will not go into more detail, everything has been said.
From a Roland Cube 30, I wanted something simple. And I've used, no need to mess 3am to find the sound you want.
No need to book.
This is a very good amp for the clean and rock. The clean is clean and you push the gain and the amp starts cruncher. Overdrive simple but clean, it does not bleed too much is discreet but effective. For metal fans, it is not the ideal amp even if it does well on large distortion.
The effects are also very good. Much less synthetic than my Roland Cube 30.
I play it with an Ibanez SA120.
I use it for 6 months. Before him I had a Peavey Studio Pro 110 used then a Roland Cube 30. I then bought an Orange micro crush to play in the apartment and I was really liked it so I bought the CR35LDX.
What I like most is the simple and natural side of the amp. No need to spend hours to fix it. And it does not sound synthetic like most amps in this price range.
Price level that must be one of the transistor 30w more expensive, but for me it is justified given the quality.
Only flaw is the lack of power, just to play repet limit. Say with the amp up and face the fact that the scene but do not restate its seems impossible.
SlapKid's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Remote control for the drive channel but not the effects, too bad.
Line out, phones (not tested), to in.
The HP is a 10pouces 4 ohms, 35W. I installed my hp preferred 8ohms it works without concern, and blocked the openings of the cabinet, explanations:
Original construction, the back is almost closed (open down about ten cms) and the panel of the cabinet has a hole diameter 6cms in each corner. Never seen it, not bass reflex.
Little residual noise, and with good pedal no switching noise either.
There also is special, it already has a gain more volume for the clean is great because gives the opportunity while remaining clean changing the sound texture (fatter, cleaner, two). With simple or hot Kinman noiseless gain in 3hrs is still unclear, with duplicates removed two hours.
The drive is special because the kids rule does not alter the clear sound. The more you crunch it up and over, again without changing the overall color to donf 'overdrive is kind acdc first period not more.
Skip to donf large enough volume, but less well in groups at home ...
The tuner is independent, does not cut the sound nor the changes, you can leave any time without further (mini light show to impress your friends).
Effects: 4réverbes, delay + reverb, 4delays (fixed), 2flangers 2phasers 2tremolos vibrato.
The higher the rate of the effect over the amp sounds loud.
It's very good, clean is very warm and balanced, just happiness. I would gladly add a compressor (Ibanez BP5) and then what a delight!
The drive is beautiful, very natural and open, a clarity that makes you want to play. Absolutely nothing to do with all the other amps I tried.
The effects are impressive clarity and warmth, as I rarely heard a good combo.
Too bad we can not cut the foot.
Matter volume is loud enough but I do not think you can do with the group besides the line is out there for that.
it's been a week since I spend 3-4hr/jour above, a real treat amp.
The original hp is not bad at all, I did not want to break in and planned to install before you buy mine.
Although the lack of adjustments for the effects seen their quality is boring, ditto for the remote switching. This is the only point I would fix if I mr Orange.
A word about the finish: beautiful, a roland cube next to it's credit to apples.
For the price, the amp that gives you the most (originality, sound, finish high-end, overall quality) by far.
What an amp apart.
