Orange Crush 20RT Review and Demo
Orange Crush 20RT Review and Demo | In this episode I take the Orange Crush 20RT through the Fret Success Gear Review. This 20 WATT amplifier is packed full of bite, energy and great sounds.  Thanks to Guitarworks Canada for lending me the guitar for the demo. Check them out here: https://guitarworks.ca/.  #guitar #orangeamps #orangecrush #guitarreviews #amplifierreviews The Crush 20RT builds on the tonal platform of the Crush 20 with even more functionality due to the inclusion of a lush onboard reverb and an integrated chromatic tuner. Like its more ‘stripped down’ sibling, the Crush 20RT features footswitchable Clean and Dirty channels plus our new high gain, four stage preamp design, serving up a huge palette of overdriven and distorted sounds, rich in harmonic overtones.  The sheer punch achieved through the Crush 20RT’s custom 8″ Voice of the World speaker is nothing short of staggering, with a commanding delivery and depth of sound that belies amp’s modest footprint. Complete with an Aux In for backing tracks and a CabSim-loaded headphone output, the Crush 20RT is the perfect portable practice amp combo, combining usable features with legendary Orange tone and buckets of classic Orange mojo.

Wally Toney (Cornford Amps USA) Interview (S3 Ep2)
Wally Toney (Cornford Amps USA) | The story of Cornford amps is one seldom told. However, I got the chance to catch up with Cornford Amplification USA owner, Wally Toney, on this episode of the Fret Success Guitar Show. We talk about the history starting with Paul Cornford and Martin Kidd and the reasons why the company stopped making amps in the end.   Some key players that use Cornford Amps are Guthrie Govan, Richie Kotzen, Mark Tremonti and so many more. SO many funny stories in this episode and we ponder the future of guitar amps, being backstage at the NAMM show, searching for the perfect guitar tone, Eddie Van Halen and how Wally's daughter was nearly hit on by Wolfgang Van Halen.  Check Out the Cornford Amplification website here for some information: http://www.cornfordusa.com/  #guitar #guitarlessons #wallytoney #eddievanhalen #wolfgangvanhalen #fretsuccess #guitarteacher #calgary #guitartone #cornfordamps #cornfordusa
