Everything I hoped for (well almost)
Instant Crush 25.04.2021
I am using it with LAG T70ACE acoustic guitar and Behringer XM8500 dynamic mic.
CONS:
-no phantom power! for a cardiod mic, silly
-a bit heavy, but that's not really a con
-looper is only 30 seconds
-the only actually useful switch on foot pedal is loop
-bluetooth got no password, anyone can connect to your amp haha, but its not a real issue
-only effect on mic is reverb, though its great, not really an issue, you can always use a processor in between

PROS:
-overall quality is great
-build is very solid, sturdy, good materials, switches and buttons are great
-wireless battery is awesome. It lasts for many hours after one short charge. Amazing.
-its 60 watts is quite nice and loud.
-bluetooth function is awesome, plays everything great
-sound is great. its not the best possible, but its very pleasant, especially for acoustic guitar which should be its primary role
-voice sounds amazing, both female and male. My wife is in love with me again <3
-chorus and reverb effects are very nice
-all other functions are fine
-foot pedal is high quality and works well

Its extremely fun amp. You can pack it in car and play and sing and listen to youtube/other sources of music in nature/at friends/wherever. For this price there are none better. Look at katana air, look at yamaha THR, and other similar amps. This is better. ITS BETTER! Its got almost everything that you can think of- loads of features, its battery operated, sounds great, good quality, large woofer, and its price is excellent. Look for some video reviews online and don't be afraid of JOYO brand. This is a quality product, nothing cheap or bad on it.
Thank you Thomann for suggesting this amp to me :)

P.S. I will also make a video review of this amp in the next few months, it will be on youtube. Happy shopping and playing :)

Very satisfied with this amp
Jur Smits 19.04.2021
My expectations where high from the other reviews I'd read. And indeed, this amp fulfills my needs: being flexible to play everywhere with good sound quality and features so I just need guitar, mic and amp.
I was looking for a busking/practicing amp on battery, a little bit more than these miniature amps and smaller than my Yamaha Stagepas 1K which I love!
I knew the BSK-60 is heavier than most busking amps but now I have played on it, I take it for granted.
Oh, tip number 1, very important: there is no (original) carrying-bag or case for this amp but I ordered the Millenium cajon bag which fits perfect and is strong enough for this 14+ Kg machine.

Most important for me: guitar channel. Sound: excellent. Features: enough but more about that later..
Mic channel: less tweakable than the guitar channel but with a good mic (Sennheiser 945) it is powerful enough.
Integrated effects: quality is good but you only need 25% of the range, otherwise the effects are too exaggerated.
Connections: very versatile, Bluetooth plus everything you need (in and out). The manual is not very clear about it but it has a real effects out/in loop named Link.
Is this useful? Depends, because here come the two limitations to my personal use: the guitar and mic channel are handled as one regarding: 'mute', 'looper' and 'link'. This means I cannot mute my guitar seperately e.g. when tuning and talking at the same time. And I can not take a guitar loop-sample while playing and singing at the samen time. The manual is not clear about this. The same applies to the Link effects out/in: both channels at the same time.

Conclusion: the looper is fine if you use it e.g. for building a rythm pattern. The memory of 30 seconds is in many cases too short for looping a verse/chorus pattern.
And thus the 9V power output of the BSK-60 is a real solution I use to power an external looper.

Pedal. The pedal is a nice add-on but I do not get the design thinking of Joyo. What do you use it for mostly? Mute, FX in/out, Tap tempo, Looping, boost etc. It features Mute and Looping but would like to trade the Anti-feedback swith for tap tempo or boost, or switch which channel to sample with the looper. Who knows, in the future?

Conclusion: a lot of worthwhile pro's for the price.
And the con's: I can not think of other products (including expensive alternatives) that would have all the pro's and solutions for the con's.

By the way: it looks great too and feels sturdy enough.

A great busker amp or a great cocktail hour speaker or home use pa
poetryboy 02.06.2022
Probably the best bargin in the thomanan store. I seen them sell for 900 elsewhere. This is so useful well made and has lots of applications for dj's buskers home use and I reccomend this busker amp its my favorite buy this year ...Many other speakers without all the effects worse sound and applications sell for much more... I think its priced too low personallly its a battery powered genius little thing and I love it.

street cube & co können einpacken

ich schreibe sonst nie bewertungen, aber hier muss die begeisterung einfach mal raus..

aber langsam.. der ehrlich- und vollständigkeit halber erstmal die cons:

1) die taptaste fürs eingebaute gitarrendelay gehört aufs mitgelieferte pedal, da is sie aber leider nich. das ist echt schade.
2) der eingebaute looper ist für mich mit 1-taster-bedienung und nur 30 sec laufzeit für mich wenig bis nicht brauchbar.
3) keine phatomspeisung.
4) keine ladeanzeige, nur ein led, das irgendwann umspringt.

so.. aber nu..

für das geld gibt es schlicht keine mir bekannte alternative, wenn es um sound und akkukapazität geht.
ein wenig muss man sich in den nur zweikanaligen eq für den vocalkanal einfuchsen, aber dann klappt auch das.
alles ordentlich eingestellt kann der joyo beinah mit "großem besteck" mithalten. einfach nur krass an volumen, klarheit und durchsetzungskraft. und auch und vor allem an bass..!

o.k., das ding wiegt und hat maße ungefähr wie´n kasten bier, aber beim hören weiß man auch, warum dieses.. kraft kommt eben aus volumen. und das dazugehörige case mit rollen dran macht das auch verschmerzbar.

ich hab mir wirklich ne menge akustikamps angehört/angespielt.
was in der gleichen preisklasse von fishman, fender, roland und anderen angeboten wird, ist soundmäßig einfach mal vergleichsweise - man muss es so deutlich sagen - unfassbar mies.
der joyo reicht in meinen ohren mindestens eine klasse weiter, also z.b. richtung bose s1, bei vielleicht nicht ganz soviel brillianz, aber auf jeden fall mehr fundament unten rum.
und auch neben acus und schertler, ja sogar neben aer muss sich der gute nicht verstecken. klingt fast unglaublich, ich weiß, is aber so.

zum akku..
der gute läuft bei mir werksaufgeladen seit drei tagen und netto rund vier stunden auf gut 60% lautstärke (genug, um meine einrichtung vibrieren zu lassen). und hält und hält.. mal schaun..

und achja.. er sieht einfach hammer aus.. satter weinroter holzton..

fazit.. wer in dieser preisklasse zu einem anderen gerät greift, macht einen fehler. schlicht und einfach. punkt.
