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!

Great Acoustic Amp with a small switch

Sgt.Pepper, 06.09.2018
I use the amp for small gigs (alone) for 1-2 acoustic guitars and vocals. Kaufgrund was the really excellent sound reproduction, even my 12Saitige Taylor is super resolved and rendered brilliant. On the six-string with a LR Baggs Anthem pickup, the playback looks so good that at lower volumes it does not even notice that it is running. Really great.
The operation and especially the good equipment with inputs / outputs is very well solved. With the numerous effects you like to lose the overview, so I've printed a card with the effects and settings and foiled and put in the amp bag. That would be a nice gimmick! (H & K is listening!)

Also, the pit flange on the bottom helps and is very convenient.

But now to small weakness: the skewers. He is really solved seige: a bent metal table that you have to poke on the bottom. Not only that you like scratching something, that time is out and then it comes out, and you can put it in the wrong place. This has solved much better (eg Ibanez with the big troubadour). Not to mention that the thing in the case / pocket of the amplifier eats useless space. Hence the asterisk deduction on features and processing.

In total: buy recommendation.
