      Great built in tuner. I tune standard, D, C, and flat. Has good player dynamics, responds well. With gain engaged, I can go from a really good crunch/ lead tone to a nice clean tone by rolling off the volume. Looks great and sounds better than most of the other plastic practice amps. Nice tolex, Cloth and grill.

      No Clean Guitar Sound

      The sound will NOT produce a clean above the number 2 setting on the volume, and that is with the bridge pickup only and tone control all the way up to its highest setting.

      No good for jazz applications.
      Okay for a rock n roll sound, but has almost no definition when striking different notes and chords (in other words, does not sound musical).

      Better off spending a little more money and getting a Vox or a Roland Microcube-

      It does what it says, convenient and portable with an easy to use interface. Power button, tuner power button, tone,volume and overdrive switch. Input jack, 9v power input and headphones out. The clean doesn't stand a chance with volume but who cares, you won't be recording with this fella.

        Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Crush PiX Series CR3 3W 1x3.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

        Off the gait... This thing is amazing!!! It's a wall of sound, loud enough to shake the snares on the snare drum from across the room. There is so much punch and lovely sounds it's hard not to love this little guy. There is no gain knob but I actually love that. The volume knob keeps the integrity of the amp, you can get volumes from no one would even know your playing in your bed room to the whole house and the neighbors know every song you play. In stead of using a gain knob to get more overdrive/distortion, or even the gain switch on the amp itself. I use my guitar volume knobs. All these people who say the Orange Micro amp doesn't go clean, haven't tried using their guitar volumes. I usually use an Epiphone Les Paul when I play this guy. I just leave the little guy on overdrive, and I turn down one the volume knobs of one of the pickups on my guitar, and keep the other on full blast, and I just flip the pickup switch when I want a different tone. The cleans are beautiful and crystal clear, with volumes at 1 and 2, and when you turn you turn it to 3-4 you can get a super bluesy John Mayer tone, that sounds so saturated. With guitar cranked you can get every sound you would like from big heavy drop tuning to AC/DC and My favorite part is you can get pinch harmonics on the amp. I honestly get better sounds from this guy then I do with my Expensive Marshall Solid State Head run though a Marshall 1960A Cabinet... Best uses for this is for anybody. Adults, kids, beginners, indeterminate players, professionals or who wanna take a break from the hi watt stuff. Of just a guy who wants to play on the porch. Tuner is fantastic to. I did an experiment on it. My very expensive, super accurate tuning pedal was dead on with the orange amp. I've also had a Marshall Micro amp and my 2 friends both bought one, I was dround out. There is a shootout on You Tube I suggest you check out. He compares the Marshall, Fender, and Orange Micro amps. Even though the video doesn't do the Orange justice. I suggest you buy this amp, over most starter amps and micro amps. I love this little guy, and I know you will too.

        • Outsourced Chinese Amp

        Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Crush PiX Series CR3 3W 1x3.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

        If you need a very small amp for travel, this is it. Otherwise, the Roland Microcube is a far better small amp.

        If you are looking for a versatile and portable practice amp, spend a bit more and get the Roland.

          Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Crush PiX Series CR3 3W 1x3.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

          I had boughten both this mini amp and the Marshall MS-2. They're both good for there own reasons but I favor this one. Not actually made in England (Made in Indonesia or something) but not expecting impeccable quality for just a travel amp. The distortion is satisfying for metal and surprisingly loud for some micro fun! Really basic, built in tuner, cool looking materials, louder and more my style than the Marshall.

            SMALL SIZE & GREAT SOUND!

            Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Crush PiX Series CR3 3W 1x3.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

            Whoever is looking for a micro amplifier that is portable, but don't let you down on sound power and quality, should buy the Orange Micro Crush CR3. It's actually smaller than I expected, and the sound is just what I was expecting. It doesn't replace a full-size amplifier of course, but it's great if you need to travel light and just want to make some noise with your guitar. Recommended!

            Cool Little Amp!

            By Victor Cranfill

            from Undisclosed

            Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Crush PiX Series CR3 3W 1x3.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

            This is a great little amp.

            I have a Billy Corgan Strat and it's easy to get some great tones out of this lil guy. It's built very well (I opened it to check). The tuner works well enough to get you there. I hooked it up to a Pigtronix Philosopher's Tone just to mess around and it surprised me. It sounded pretty cool! I also have a Marshall MS-4 too. The Micro Crush is much better out of the box. Be warned tho...mini amps are super addicting! I'm already thinking of getting a Pignose Legendary 7-100 (which I've played before) and a Roland MicroCube.

            You can easily throw this in a backpack with some stomp boxes, cables, extra batteries, and go anywhere to play.

            nice mini amp not a toy!

            Comments about Orange Amplifiers Micro Crush PiX Series CR3 3W 1x3.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

            I love this thing great micro amp! better sound and feel than other micro amps
            I have owned this micro amp for 3plus yrs and it is great for setting up/restringing and living room jamin. I put a distortion pedal in front of it dial it in so you dont blow the speaker and jam away
            good tone, good tuner,good for acoustic/elec. guitars too . Not a practice amp for full band rehersal
            but good enough to play electric solos over an acoustic or two.I use this alot when im doing set ups on guitars and basses as i do guitar repair and set ups for my local community.this to me is not a toy it is a tool and if you treat it so it will last a long time ! I have read the review that said somthing about the speaker poping or giving out.they must have gotten a lemon that sucks.So far mine is a great micro amp( i own many larger amps orange,randall,marshall) yes its wood/particle board
            i like this better than plastic as the sound is improved/warmer.
            solidly built for particle board good knobs good switches.over all nice amp
            worth every penny
