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.

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-

        Given all the good reviews for this product line, I was surprised with what I got. The speaker blew the first time I used it. And yes, that was after letting it warm up. By comparison, the Danelectrico worked great with the same treatment.

        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.

          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.

            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.
