It is powerful enough for me.......

I had one for a bit but it wasn't near powerful enough.
.....when I play in the living room or jamming with friends in a small room. Never really tried it in an open area. The only drawback is the one channel and no reverb but it is fine with me.

Fender Acoustasonic UltraLite

Tried this rig, and it absolutely killed the normal Acoustasonic amps. The closed back cab gives it a very full warm sound. I didn't have a whole lot to compare it to beside a couple Traynor and Yorkville acoustic amps though.


And it's extremely light weight. You can carry the cab and head bag in one hand. I think 25lbs total, not bad for 250 Watts.

I'm taking it to practice tomorrow so we'll see how it holds up with both acoustic guitars going through it.

I will use a soundtech powered stereo mixer through a through a pair of small ev speakers with a DI acoustic preamp-the preamp I dont have yet. I think its the real popular stombox one one that goes for about a hundred and a half U.S., but I cannot recall which one at the moment.

Hi Jeff
I have been useing an AER compact 60 and I love it. This amp is very small , but don't let that fool you.I have never had an acoustic sound so good and I have tried most of the major brands. Just try one . It will knock you sox off.

Genz Benz Shen Pro 200. Sweeet amp, bought it after 3 months of research and testing. Very natural but has the Tube blend as well to warm things up a little. Great Alesis effects built into both channels and tonnes of power. Second choice would have been an Ultrasound CP-100 but they are tough to find, and with only half the wattage usually cost more.

Accoustic Amp?

Duh?
I have been using a Fender Squire 10w SS with Dean Markley sound hole wooden pickups on my 2 accoustic and a Dean markley "button tranduser" on my "f" hole archtop.Thought they sounded OK, certainly more consistant than miking. Sound good through my national tube amp as well. What am I missing here? Actual amps just for accoustics? (ps they sound awesome through the Line 6 Spider modeller also)
Can anyone clarify for me?
cheers

Traynor Acoustic Master AM150.

It didn't ship with the tilt back legs or the effects footswitch so I purchased them seperately. Works well, especially when only a moderate amount of amplification is required to compete with louder acoustic instruments like violin, concertina, vocals, or just a whole lot of them together. Sounds lousy with magnetic pickups, but very nice with transducers and mics. Handles mandolin and violin well too.

Peace, Mooh.

I played the new small Fishman amp the other day. I can't remember the actual model name, but it was around $700. and was quite portable, as opposed to some of their other amps. Two channels with reverb, lots of bells and whistles but more to the point, easy to dial in a really good sound. I think lots of places deal in Fishman, so maybe ask at your local music store?

Great Amp

I've used an AER compact60 and an alpha. I think these amps are great sounding, and compact. A bit pricey, but the portability partially makes up for that.
