Orange Crush 12L vs Crush 12

Post by trossit » Sun Nov 11, 2018 6:21 pm

Hi Forum,

I am a new member and just recently purchased a used Crush 12L, serial no. 18684-1013. The printing on the rear panel shows "Crush Pix" and Made in P.R.C. (People's Republic of China). I have read the Crush solid-state amps went through changes to their tone in 2015. Note: This Crush 12L appears to be a 2013 model if I am understanding the serialization coding correctly.

My question is did the tone circuitry change affect the Crush 12L series? I do know they advertise a "Cab Sim" upgrade to the headphone output in their late model amps but did it also affect the main speaker output? I think the Crush 12L amp sounds quite good with the classic Orange crunch sound that other small amps can't seem to provide. Compared to a new Crush 12 at Guitar Center I think they both identical. Any thoughts?

Thanks! :)
