Crush Pro 60 Combo Speaker Swap?

Hello all,

This is my first time posting here. I hope everybody is doing well.

I have a Crush Pro 60 combo and I really like it. It's a tad dark sounding though and I'm wondering if anybody has ever tried to change the speaker in an Orange solid state amp? If so, what kind of results did you get?

Does the "dark" sound come from the speaker or the analogue circuitry? (Both I guess?)

I use some pedals to brighten up the amp and it sounds great but my GAS keeps tapping me on the shoulder to see what a new speaker might sound like... even if it's an Orange VOTW gold speaker? (Is this possible?)

Thanks for reading this...

You can always change out the speaker as long as you get the same ohmage speaker to replace it.

Offhand, I don't recall anyone ever posting about swapping out a speaker in a Crush but it's doable. Personally, I love Celestion Vintage 30's but I don't know that they will get you closer to the sound you want. If you can unplug the speaker and plug it into various speaker cabs with other types of speakers you might be able to hear something you like.

I appreciate your response. I may give that a try.

I suppose an EQ pedal would probably accomplish the same thing (or very similar) without taking the amp apart.

I've already emailed Celestion and they've recommended some options for me to try if I decide to change out the speaker.

Thanks again.
