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!

Großartiger Acoustic Amp mit einer kleinen Schwäche
Sgt.Pepper, 06.09.2018
Ich verwende den Amp für kleiner Auftritte (alleine) für 1-2 Akustik Gitarren und Gesang. Kaufgrund war die wirklich exzellente Klangabbildung, auch meine 12Saitige Taylor wird super aufgelöst und brilliant wiedergegeben. Bei der sechssaitigen mit einem LR Baggs Anthem Abnehmer wirkt die Wiedergabe so gut, dass man bei niedrigeren Lautstärken gar nicht merkt dass er läuft. Wirklich toll.
DIe Bedienung und vor allem die gute Ausstattung mit Ein/Ausgängen ist sehr gut gelöst. Bei den zahlreichen Effekten verliert man gerne die Übersicht, daher hab ich mir ein Kärtchen mit den Effekten und Einstellungen gedruckt und foliert und in die Amp Tasche gesteckt. Das wäre ein nettes Gimmick! (H&K hört her!)

Auch der Boxenflansch an der Unterseite hilft und ist sehr praktisch.

Doch nun zu kleinen Schwäche: der Schrägsteller. Der ist ja wirklich besch**eiden gelöst: ein gebogenes MEtallstaberl dass man an der unterseite reinstecken muss. NIcht nur dass man dabei gerne mal was zerkratzt, dass Zeit ausleiert und dann fällt das wieder raus, und mann kann es falsch und richtig rum reinstecken. Das haben andere (z.B. Ibanez mit dem größen Troubadour) wesentlich besser gelöst. Mal ganz davon abgesehen dass das DIng in der Hülle/Tasche des Verstärkers sinnlos platz frisst. Daher der Sternchen Abzug bei Features und Verarbeitung.

In Summe: Kaufempfehlung.

Nachtrag vom 21.12.2018
Nun schon Auftritte hinter mir. Nur positives Feedback. DIe Taylor mit dem LR Baggs Anthem und ein AKG COndensator Bühnenmic. gar nicht viel einstellen, einschalten und gut ist. Eines der Reverb Programme und loslegen. Großartig.

Qualité et son chaleureux
Ovation26, 02.04.2018
Avis après réglage à la maison, 2 répétitions et un concert live.
Il faut passer par le toujours subtil réglage pour optimiser le préampli de la guitare et les divers réglages de l'ERA 1. Mais ça vaut la peine d'y passer du temps et d'éplucher le manuel (en Français), le résultat est très satisfaisant.
Sur un si petit et léger combo, on arrive a obtenir un son chaud en passant par des basses qui n'ont pas à rougir par rapport à un matériel plus encombrant, jusqu'aux aigus précis sans être agressifs. Comme souvent le réglage des médiums est délicat, mais avec de la patience, tout sonne bien et avec ses 250w, on a de la réserve !
Bon le tarif n'est pas neutre, mais la qualité est là et on a un matériel entièrement fabriqué en Allemagne, livré avec une housse matelassée solide et un pied permettant de basculer l'ampli en fonction retour !
Ma guitare : Takamine Tan10c, mon ancien ampli : Fishman Loudbox Artist

genau was ich suchte
Mike LD, 21.05.2020
wie in der Werbung versprochen bringr der Era1 den Originalsound der Gitarre super rüber. Da fällt es auch nicht ins Gewicht, dass die Einstellung der Effekte auf den eigenen Bedarf etwas fummelig ist, denn was ich will ist der Originalklang. Toll auch, dass es 2 komplett unabhängige Kanäle gibt. Einziger Sterneabzug für die kleinen Regler, die etwas schwierig zugänglich sind. Ist aber gut zu verschmerzen, alles andere wirklich top!
