The Orange Amps Crush 15R is a small and simple guitar amplifier that packs a mean tone for only having having 15 watts. The amp is solid state based and has a single, 8" speaker inside of it. The only connections that it has come in the form of 1/4" jacks for instrument input and a headphone output. The amp also has a real built in spring reverb, which is pretty rare for an amp of this stature...
Using the Orange Amps Crush 15R isn't difficult in the least. It's a great beginner's amp because of this, as it has just the basics. The amp has both a clean and overdrive channel, with overall parameters for high, mid, and low EQ, as well as a reverb konb and master and level parameters for the overdrive. There is also an overall volume knob and a button for engaging the overdrive. I haven't had a look at the manual for this amp...
The Orange Amps Crush 15R really has a big sound for such a small amp. I've mostly used this amp for practicing, but also a little bit for recording as well. It's definitely got the Orange sound, just in a compact casing. I mostly used the clean sound on here, but the built in overdrive is great for getting a bit of gain and especially good for recording close mic'd. I also love the reverb in here, as it's a real spring reverb and it definitely sounds it. I don't think that this is loud enough for shows, however.
The Orange Amps Crush 15R is really the perfect practice amp. It's got more options than you would expect at this size and price. I don't own the amp anymore, but when I did I used it mostly as a portable amp to bring around whenever needed. The price is more than reasonable, as it's definitely one of the cheapest ways to get the Orange sound. If you're thinking about getting this as a practice or extra amp, I'd definitely encourage you to do so as I loved having this amp when I had it!
This Orange Amp Crush 15 R is a solid state amp with 15 watts. It has an input for your instrument and an output for headphones. It has two channels - a clean one and a distortion one. It has adjustable equalization, a gain knob, a reverb knob, and an overall volume knob.
The set up is pretty basic, just plug your guitar in and let it rip. Its really easy to get both a nice clean and distorted sound, although I do wish that the reverb on it didn't color the sound as much as it does. I bought this amp used so I never had a manual, but really can't envision anyone needing one except for maybe some detailed technical issues.
I play mostly rhythm rock guitar and this definitely suits that. However, I use it strictly as a practice amp because it really isn't loud enough to play a show with. I use it with my Fender Stratocaster and it gets both a thick, heavy distortion for rhythm and a pretty nice lead sound as well. It also has a good sounding clean tone, it comes in crystal clear. I'm not a big fan of the reverb on the amp as for me it kind colors the sound in a negative way.
I've had this amp for 2 years and it is great as a practice amp. Orange makes really reliable, great sounding amps. While I don't love the reverb on it, the clean and distorted sounds make up for it. Even though its probably not loud enough to play a show, for a 15 watt amp it certainly can crank. In my opinion, this tramples over any other small amps in its class and the price is reasonable for all budgets. Even though I have a larger amp I use more often, its really convenient to have a great sounding amp that I can travel easily with.

raffaello's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Orange Crush 15R bought HP chang (by Jensen Mod 8) Never test with Original HP. Transistors 15 Watt amp. Between guitar, headphones output. 1 volume and a master of; rglage with overdrive gain; qualisation bass, mid, treble; rverb. I would apprci out a line output and the like in the series Pix.
The manual serves nothing. Setup is simple. In clean with a little rverb is parfait.On clicks the button on the Overd for its very typ orange, boost pedal with overdrive is really better. The qualisation is effective, but it causes grsillements home. The rverb is very nice, within 3-4 coats is subtle but the sound just right.
It is well suited my style of music, namely pop / rock / blues. In a clean complies with the sound of my guitar (Lg Jet 100), it is quite clear but warm. Once Overdrive Switch-on the typical sound Orange is the playing the master volume can enjoy low volume, but it's better with a good pedal, it's great for a good bluesy crunch .dropoff window 3/4 sends a well in the rock, nice when same has still vintage I think. Every fund has become very strong, it is largely dimensioned to play flat, but the HP change to play too. In the rglant well it is very versatile, hand perhaps for Mtal. Coupled to a pedal Overd to brighten the sound as clear as Switch-on overdrive. 10 for the warm sound and the typical grain overdrive.
I use it for 6 months. I hesitated with the Pathfinder 15R that has a trmolo more but I found the sound too cavernous. I love above all the sound that both clean overdrive and her look is top, it really made an impression. Bought 80 euros Cygnus HP chang c'tait a very good deal. I would do this choice without problem, and my future amp will blow sr a Orange (maybe next time a lamp)!

15 watt transistor AMPLIFIERS
1Between jack and 1 output jack (Line and Headphone)
Set volume, gain, bass, mid, treble, reverb, distortion (1 volume + 1 switch)
reverb + crunch (distortion)
Trs simple configuration
excellent sound (Orange!) fairly typical vintage (super reverb)
the sound is clear and precise trs powerful crunch
Its pretty typical vintage
I use a telecaster
I abuse the reverb that sounds wonderful (and not numrique!)
full and precise in both acute than in the serious
sound to clear its dirty it is perfect
It's been two years since I used
be home to work
be included on scne and studio with a microphone
Contents of 15watts in it surpasses the vox, fender or Marshall
It does not sound toy is a real amp
it is certainly one of the most expensive in the range of 15 watt
but that sounds like an orange an "orange"
I do not regret this purchase
