If you are playing a lot of gigs, and want an acoustic guitar amplifier that you can take everywhere with you, this is the one to go for. It packs a punch, developing 60 watts of power, but remarkably is still compact enough to travel with.

In addition, the build quality on this amp is amazing. It seems that AER have really thought about the types of knocks and scratches that amps get throughout their lives, and taken the time to design an amp that will minimize these. The dials on this amp are protected by the housing, and the sturdy frame means that you will get years of reliable service from it.

PROS
  • The design of this amp is subtle. If you are into minimal styling, this is an advantage in itself! However, it has another little-mentioned advantage, which is that with an amp that does not look flashy and expensive, you are less likely to get it stolen!
  • The two channels of input on this amp greatly improve the sound quality, and each has a dedicated EQ, meaning you can really design the perfect sound. The EQ on this amp also appeared to have a far greater range than some of the other acoustic guitar amps that we have seen, so if you are looking for a particularly bassy sound, for instance, you can get it with this amp!
  • AER pride themselves on designing equipment specially for acoustic guitarists, and this amp is a great example of that. In addition to the features which make it great for gigging, the sound is amazing. Tones stay crystal clear even up to high volumes, and there is barely a hint of noise.
  • In fact, even if you push the amp to its limits, you need not worry about the sound. There is a subtle dynamic control built into this amp, meaning that even if you have to turn it up loud, you can do so safe in the knowledge that it will not be damaged.
CONS
  • Very few. If you are looking for an acoustic guitar amp to go on the road with, this is the one!
