Not had my Orange Crush 15 long and am wondering if it was a good choice. Clean it sounds lovely, couldn't ask for more. But when I turn on the Distortion channel or use my Boss Blues Driver I get a very annoying fizzy crackle sorta noise accompanying me, usually in the tail end of the output. This is made even worse using headphones.

Is this just a sign that the amp can't handle a distorted/overdriven signal?

Considering a Roland Cube 15x as a replacement... good idea?

I'm using a Fender '72 Custom btw and play pretty much anything.

Orange is not very popular with producing cheap SS practice amps.......
and just because its an Orange doesn't mean it sound good......

try looking at the
Peavey Vypyr 30
Roland Cube 30x
Vox AD30VT or VT30

The Blues Driver is an overdrive pedal, using OD pedals with an SS amp isn't recommended because it doesn't do much. Get a good distortion pedal.

What counts as "good" will depend on your budget though.

Another alternative would be to sell the Crush, take any money you have now and buy a better amp.
