Big Sound in a Compact Package

The AC-60 is a marvel of amplifier design, using the latest DSP technology to deliver a pure, rich acoustic sound with projection far beyond its compact size. This stereo acoustic amp (30w x 2) offers brilliant stereo/multi-band chorus including a new “wide” mode, plus shimmering reverb tailored specifically for acoustic guitar. And if it’s more low-end you crave, the AC-60 even gives you a Subwoofer output.

A Marvel of Convenience

The dual-channel AC-60 offers both a Guitar channel and a Mic/Line channel with Phantom Power. This makes it the perfect companion for coffee houses and small club gigs. The Guitar channel gives you a choice between piezo and magnetic pickup inputs, plus powerful Anti-Feedback controls. Rounding out this package is a Mute switch for silent tuning and a Stereo Line Out for connection to mixing consoles and PA systems.

A little powerhouse
Patrick1246, 22.07.2015
Hard to believe that an amp this small can do so much, but it can. Before I bought this, I also tried out the Marshall 50 watt competitor- rented both for a gig and played them both on stage the same night. There was no comparison in the sound quality. The Roland may cost more than some other acoustic amps, but the features and the sound quality are worth the price.

Small and powerful
12.10.2015
This is a great guitar combo for smaller venues if you're looking for something easy to carry around and want to leave mixers and monitor stands at home.

I was a bit surprised at first by the size of the AC-60 as I thought it looked considerably smaller in reality than from looking at the pictures. As with all Roland products, it's sleek and cool looking. It comes in a great tour bag which features a cable pocket, and a small stand under the bottom that folds up to give the speakers a higher angle.

Inputs are great, nice versatility with stereo AUX input jacks at the rear, and the line out and sub woofer out may come in handy if you're hooking up into a bigger rig on stage.

The amp gives more than enough power in the low mid to high register, which is great for guitars and vocals, but it must be pointed out this is not a full range speaker and if you're looking for low bass you will be disappointed. Therefore I wouldn't recommend it as a keyboard speaker other than for really small rooms or specific instrument patches like maybe Rhodes or Clavinets that don't necessarily have to go a lot below 200Hz. It's definitely not a bass speaker. That having been said, it does a decent job for its considerable portability.

In short, it's a great high quality light-weight product that does exactly what it should - amplify acoustic guitar and vocals.

Klein aber oho! Teuer aber nie bereut - der Roland AC60
ThomasP, 14.10.2009
Ich besitze nun den Roland AC60 seit knapp 2 Jahren und bin vollends mit ihm zufrieden. Ich spiele über den Roland eine Martin Akustik Gitarre mit einem Fishman Prefix Pickup (Blend).

Der Roland AC60 ist ein kleiner Akustik-Gitarren Amp, mit 60W ... (30W pro Box) und besitzt 2 Kanäle. Ich habe mir diesen Amp angeschafft um zum anderen meine Gitarre zu verstärken und zum anderen um ihn als kleine PA für meinen Gesang zu verwenden. Vom Gitarrensound find ich den Roland unübertroffen, spiele auch gern zu Hause über ihn. Leise Fingerpicking Stücke klingen beeindruckend kräftig und mithilfe des Equalizer's (einen pro Kanal) lässt sich der Ton nach Wunsch ändern.
Der AC60 hat auch noch ein paar andere schöne Funktionen, die Auto-Anti-Feedback Funktion: Wenn's mal ordentlich pfeift dank Rückkopplung - Knöpfchen drücken - 5 Sekunden warten - und der automatische Bandfilter des AC60s filtert das pfeifen weg - Stark!. Ein paar Effekte hat er auch drauf: Chorus, Reverb und Delay - klingen in meinem Ohren auch sehr gut, verwende ich aber nicht so häufig.

Für den Bandgebrauch war mir der AC60 allerdings zu schwach - gegen Schlagzeug und E-Gitarre kommt der kleine Amp einfach nicht an bzw. man hört nur was wenn man direkt davor steht - bzw. der Rest der Band erahnt lediglich noch die Akustikgitarre. Dann doch lieber über eine PA einspielen. Gesang hab ich noch nicht wirklich ausprobiert, aber es klang sehr sauber.

Für kleine Auftritte find ich den kleinen Amp ideal, die Gitarre kommt richtig, richtig gut rüber. Noch dazu ist er sehr handlich und kommt mit ordentlicher Roland-Tragetasche, die für zusätzliche Kabel (XLR/Gitarrenkabel) Platz bietet.

Alles in einem ein wirklich toll klingender A-Gitarren Amp den ich jederzeit wiederkaufen würde :)

ROLAND AC-60 : Super outil
Bernard377, 04.07.2011
Réception de la bête : à première vue il y a un très bon emballage, la protection est bien assurée pendant le transport rapide par UPS. Effectivement aucune surprise au déballage : aucun problème. Le fait d'avoir dans le même package l'ampli et sa housse de transport ROLAND est certainement un plus, pour la livraison du produit et surtout pour le transport fréquent d'un lieu de répète à un autre...

Question fonctionnement, il est très intuitif pour peu que l'on ait une petit expérience de ce type de produit. Bruit de fond quasi inexistant et pratiquement nul si l'on utilise les prises XLR stéréo pour branchement direct sur une table de mixage en vue d'une reprise par la sono (malgré plus de 40 m de câble !). Dans ce cas le potentiomètre "Volume" au niveau des entrées règle le niveau du signal transitant via les XLR vers le mixage et le potentiomètre "Master" ne règle que ce qui sort de l'ampli directement par ses propres HP. Cette disposition est très pratique régler le niveau de retour de scène direct par cet ampli car il n'a aucune influence sur le niveau du signal sortant par les XLR et allant directement sur la sono.

Pour le reste, les différents réglages, les effets, l'anti-feed-back, c'est un vrai plaisir car tout se passe comme prévu dans la doc !

Et question "Puissance" sans perdre de qualité, au vu de son poids, il n'y a rien à redire !

Au final, c'est une acquisition que l'on ne peut pas regretter (malgré le prix d'achat...)
