The Orange Crush Mini has been redesigned to give you classic Orange tone in a small, lightweight amplifier. Whether warming up backstage on the road, at practice, or in your bedroom, the Crush Mini is the perfect companion.

The redesigned control panel gives you full tonal control with gain, shape and volume. Backing off the gain and pushing the volume up results in British crunch, while pushing the gain up will give you searing high gain. The shape control, like the Micro Dark, cuts or boosts the mids, giving fat mids through to scooped tones.

A new feature for the Crush Mini is the 8 Ohm speaker output. Using the preamp stage of the amp, you can plug directly into an external speaker cabinet to open up even more tonal capabilities.

The Crush Mini features a built-in tuner, as well as a headphone output that cuts the speaker for silent practice. The AUX IN makes playing along to your favourite songs is a breeze!

The Orange Crush MINI is arguably the best mini amp available on the market. I have owned over the years quite a few small amps from a Hotone MojoAttack, the Traynor pedal amp, and the Orange Tiny Terror, all of them very good on their own. However, the Orange Crush Mini is something else! On its own, it compares to minis available from other manufactures. It's secret, none of the others share, is its 1/4 inch cabinet output. As a reference, I own the Orange OR15H head which is excellent amp. I highly recommend. After reading reviews on line, I was greatly impressed by the new version of the Orange Crush Mini. With it's very affordable price, I ordered one from my local Long and McQuade. And what an amp! The staff at the Belleville L&M after a try out through a Traynor DHX12 cabinet (I cannot say enough about this amazing cabinet!) were smiling from ear to ear. If one already own a good cab (the mini's 3 watts can handle everything: 1X12, 2X12, or 4X12) and your main amp is to powerful for home practice, $80 will solve your problem. I'm not joking. Over the years I have used a Marshall early seventies 50W head, a 50W Hiwatt 50W head, a fender Twin Reverb, A Marshall Class 5 Head, and the other small amps referred to earlier. The Crush Micro is IT. I wish I still owned my Marshall 8X10 cab from the early seventies to try it through. I gave such high marks to the mini for its use with my Traynor DHX12. Of course, it isn't as impressive through its 3" speaker though it is very usable. If you compare it with its included speaker, the little combo is equal or better than its competitor in the same price range. As usual, the Belleville store staff was outstanding! Thanks especially to Travis!

When I read the online reviews, they said there was an input jack, but there is not. The sounds on the clean side are OK. The distortion is tinny, high pitched and harsh on the ears. I already have one of those Micro Marshall stacks. I was hoping this would be better sounding. It's not. It has a tuner built in, so I guess that is what the $20 difference in price is about. When it comes to good sound in a battery amp, do some research on busking amps. You'll pay 3-5 times the price, but you'll get 100 times the sound.

Very simple to use and pretty much what you would expect from a 3w amp. Until you use the external output and go into a cab. WOW! Can't keep up with a band by any means but you still get some killer tones and it's great for recording!

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty.

Warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?

Performance Guarantee - normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage.

Product Replacement - if your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.

No Lemon Policy - your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.

Convenient - easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.

Guitar Setup - Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.

Loaners Available - a loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.

Power Surge Protection - your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.

Accessory Coverage - any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.

Commercial Use Coverage - music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty.Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Accidental or cosmetic damage is not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

-----

Purchasing additional years of coverage

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

NEW products: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.

USED products: 4% of selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.

GUITARS: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.

BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 up to $2,000 selling price. BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the selling price after $2,000. WOODWINDS: 4% of the selling price after $2,000.

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.
