First impression - Just epic!

Amp Epico!, 31.10.2017
I have recently got new Era 1 and very happy with the sound. It was tested on my Taylor acoustic Guitar and Music Man JP Majesty. I didn't try all features yet. In General I have bought it to have very good clean acoustic sound for recording but it is also very useful for some concerts. Maybe about 1 thing I have to mention what I not really like but maybe it is natural thing: the noise from amp. When you put Volume on 12 o clock and gain parameter also about 12 o clock it is getting markedly , but it is also possible to play with the parameters to reduce the noise. The conclusion is: clean sound itself just fantastic, exact what I expected. Number of effects is enough and can be customized, interesting work of EQ with boosting the frequents. In my opinion it is great acoustic Amp!

Qualit and warm sound

Ovation26, 02.04.2018
Review after setting at home, 2 rehearsals and a live concert.
We must go through the always subtle setting to optimize the preamp of the guitar and the various settings of the ERA 1. But it's worth spending time and peel the manual (in French), the result is very satisfaying.
On such a small and light combo, we get to get a warm sound through the bass that do not have to blush compared to a more cumbersome equipment, accurate treble without being aggressive. As often the setting of the midrange is delicate, but with patience, everything sounds good and with its 250w, we have the reserve!
Good price is not neutral, but the quality is there and we have a material entirely made in Germany, comes with a solid padded cover and a foot to switch the amp back function!
My guitar: Takamine Tan10c, my old amp: Fishman Loudbox Artist
