    The guitar amp? Not the best option.
  3. they do make a bass version - actually I think they just introduced a larger version at namm, one thats gig-able. . . never tried one but I would imagine they make a solid practice amp.
  4. I´m still waiting mine....the 50 watts version

    I once read in an interview with Ben Kenney that if he could play through a whole wall of the Orange Bass Crushes live, he would...that probably says something - considering he's endorsed by Mesa...

    Yeah, but that's the same thing Ben said about the Mesa Walkabout in his Bass Player interview a few years back. "The tone (of the walkabout) is so fresh. If I could, I would play with a wall of these...."

    Maybe Ben's looking for an Orange endorsement these days?

    I have owned and played through a Orange Crush 35B for 4 years and for a practice amp its great. The 12inch speaker gives the amp enough mid-low range so you actually get a decent sound out of it. The 50 and 100 watt have upgrades have a built in tuner which would be handy and the 100 watt also has a 15 inch speaker as well as a balanced line out. Good amps.

    I had the Orange Crush 35B bass amp combo. The newer version is improved, I love a built in tuner on an amp.

    The one I owned was solid, good not great, pretty much as good as anything I tried in the same price range/specwise by Ampeg, Peavey or Acoustic. It's solid for the money for sure. I kinda miss it in a way.....mostly because now I see I want to have a 1x15" AND a 1X10/or12" around.

    But yeah, try before you buy if you can and just like all the competition in its range..... using a BDDI, VT Pedal, M-80, BDI21, etc....... make it much better amp.

    I know it may be hard to tell.... but I am giving the older version 35B a positive review.

    This small combo in this price range is such a crowded field and add in the used market to the options in this price range..... and I just can't take or understand the overly negative or overly positive reviews of this amp or its peers.
