Recently purchased this little monster because I needed a solid state amp that I could use as a secondary amp and reliable backup to my small tube combo. This is a two channel amp. The dirty channel has pre-amp, bass, mid, treble, and volume controls. The clean channel has bass, treble, and a volume channel. In addition, the amp has a master volume. Coupled with the master volume you can go into slightly broken up territory on the clean channel by cranking the volume. The clean channel can have lots of overhead if you set it up as such (volume down, master up). The dirty channel is very orange sounding. The preamp can go from mild grit to very distorted. Front this thing with a good OD, and you will find yourself instantly in sonic heaven. Orange recommends the Fulltone OCD overdrive, and I can see why. You can get very good hard rock tones with the CR-60 pre-amp set to about noon, fronted with a Fulltone OCD with the gain set to about 11 o'clock. The secret sauce here is the power amp. It responds very much like the Orange Rocker series tube power section. I'm not sure how Orange achieves this, suffice to say we are getting very close to solid state technology being sonically as good as tube amps. The amp sports a buffered effects loops that sounds great, as well as foot-switch jacks for both reverb and channel. The send, return, channel, and reverb jacks are all located on the bottom of the amp's head (as opposed to the back of the amp). I have mixed feelings on this. It's definitely harder to plug into them when they are located underneath, but it also works much better for placing the amp on a tilt back stand. I love that while this amp is solid state, its build quality is every bit as good as any tube amp I've owned (many over 20 years of playing). The Orange Voice of the World speaker does good at gig volumes, although I might try to throw a V30 into it, just to see how it does. Great amp. You won't be disappointed.
