Yes! Just yes.

24.03.2015
Hands down the best piece of equipment I have ever bought.

For guitars and vocals, it just delivers a sound beyond your wildest expectations. Absolutely gorgeous.

Even tried a sneaky little bit of electric guitar and bass through it on the odd occasion and it has out performed every other amp I've owned - even though it's not it's intended purpose!

Blew both my Trace Elliot bass amp and Peavey Electric Guitar amp out of the water.

The DI output is a great feature when you need a bigger set up but still want that AER sound. The AER alone fills most venues (small bars, wedding ceremony/receptions etc). When I need something a bit louder - just take a couple of active speakers for FOH and run the AER as a monitor, DI out into the FOH inputs and voila.

But yes. If you're an acoustic performer of any variety. Buy this amp. You will not regret it and neither will your audience.

Great amplifier with clear sound, good features and it's also light and portable!

Aengus, 20.01.2014
I am very happy with my purchase of this amp.

Sound: Very clear, reproduces the sound of my jazz guitar very well. Incredible fidelity in the sound. Even reproduces the weaker points of my guitar though, so beware that a great guitar will sound great through this amp, whereas the amp (in my opinion) will probably not make a mediocre guitar sound better. It doesn't seem to have a strong character in its sound which is ideal if you're looking for that, but not if you're looking for an amp with a particular colour.
For the size, the volume is quite surprising. It can crank up to a high volume and the sound quality is the exact same at all volumes.
I haven't yet used the FX loop and line-out so I can't say how they are, but I understand that they are great.

Size/weight: Wonderful! Gone are the days of back-breaking amps and awkward load-ins with this amp! With the included gig-bag, its a pleasure to carry this amp around.

Features: A very versatile amp, in that it can take active and passive guitars as well as microphones of different voltages (haven't tried this, but the amp can be internally altered to provide a choice of 48V and 9V phantom power for microphones. This is pretty great, haven't heard of a similiar amp that does this)

Price: Ok it is a little pricey, but I think this amp is well worth it for the price.

If you're an acoustic guitarist or jazz guitarist and you care about the natural tone of your instrument getting to the ears of your listeners get this amp!
