DON�ۡ���T READ ANY REVIEW EXCEPT THIS ONE, Well I�ۡ���m just kidding, certainly you...Read complete review

DON�ۡ���T READ ANY REVIEW EXCEPT THIS ONE, Well I�ۡ���m just kidding, certainly you should, but I think you�ۡ���ll find mine to be very interesting. I�ۡ���ve never written a marathon review like this about any product, but Behringer company deserves it. Although otherwise defined by Webster�ۡ���s Dictionary, the word �ۡ��̏Cheap�ۡ�ݕ�_ is often used to describe something of lesser quality and unfortunately Behringer products. The Behringer ACX 450 is low in price but there is nothing inferior about it. I don�ۡ���t want this review to sound like others, the usual�ۡ��_ I�ۡ���ve been playing for x-years etc; but I guess I must. I�ۡ���m a solo guitarist, most often play the classical guitar for the past 45 years. I play modern classical music at weddings and other romantic occasions. I�ۡ���m also a Graduate Engineer, no I don�ۡ���t work for Behringer! Over the years as technology changed so did I. Prior to purchasing the Behringer, 14 months ago I purchased a Fender Acoustasonic SFX II, an excellent amp in every way. The SFX stereo expansion, and string dynamics features are nice. However, it has more watts than I need and weighs a ton. At the last wedding I performed at I couldn�ۡ���t find a near parking spot so I had to lug the Fender a distance and then up a flight of stairs to the banquet hall. That was the deciding factor to purchase a smaller amp. I thought about buying a smaller Fender or other high end brand, I�ۡ���ve played through many over the years and most were very good. But in the back of my mind was Behringer that I hadn�ۡ���t tried. Behringer equipment is designed in Germany, �ۡ��̏very impressive�ۡ�ݕ�_ and manufactured in Behringer City, China. Behringer does not have their products contract built, they own a manufacturing plant thus build their products. Therefore you pay less, furthermore thanks to Uli Behringer their products are not ridiculously priced 500 percent above cost like some brands. The Behringer mission is to provide high quality equipment at an affordable price. Go to Behringer.com and read their story. Before I write more about the amp as an Engineer I want to clear up a couple of myths. (1) Anything from China that is junk is because we required them to build it that way. Chinese folks do beautiful work. (2) I�ۡ���ve read reviews stating some Behringer products are clones of other company designs. REALLY?�ۡ��_.. Behringer products are designed in Germany by German Engineers therefore�ۡ��_.whom do you think is building clones? Perhaps that is the reason Behringer does not provide electrical schematics for their products. The Behringer is built as pristine as it gets, and sounds beautiful, I like its sound better than my Fender. Paramount was that I not only purchase a great sounding amp but also reliable. At weddings I often solo for the bride and groom as they dance with an audience of usually 100-300 people. I DON�ۡ���T WANT MY AMP TO FAIL! I spoke with the nice folks at Behringer USA. They affirm that their failure rate is less than one percent, and I believe that because�ۡ��_ I was curious to learn therefore I removed the amplifiers from both cabinets to compare. Because my major was electronic engineering does NOT mean I�ۡ���m an audio amplification expert but I do have enough knowledge to judge certain fundamentals. The Fender is made in Mexico. Without schematics to refer to noticeable the Fender electronic architecture is excellent with quality components. The Behringer as I said is built in Behringer City manufacturing plant, China. It�ۡ���s built just as commendable with better artistry, very detailed precise workmanship. SOUND: I can�ۡ���t pick out sound for you but what I look for is a silky acoustic nylon classical guitar timbre that�ۡ���s mysteriously romantic. The only effect I use is reverb if not naturally present and sometimes compression/limiter. It doesn�ۡ���t have a limiter or compression features. Other model Behringer amps do. I have never heard reverb as nice as the Behringer. Very spacious�ۡ��_it simulates the sound of the Fender SFX stereo expansion. It is very beautiful. SUMMARY: I�ۡ���m delighted in every way. Make no mistake about it, the Behringer ACX450 is an awesome very high quality stage worthy amplifier that I believe will prove to be very dependable for years. Forget about labels, low cost, and reviews that lack substance. The amp sounds great, looks great, and is built great, and it�ۡ���s weighs only a little over 29 pounds. I hope my review is helpful to you. Thanks for your time.

          I bought this for my Alvarez hybrid nylon string guitar. I have since picked up an Epiphone ES-175. It also sounds great. The tone sounds good and it comes with a foot switch for the 16 different tone, including reverb, delay and modulation. It comes with 5 band EQ all for the very affordable price. This unit was designed in Germany.

          Fine sound

          By Bruce McDermott

          from Mystic, CT

          Comments about Behringer Ultracoustic ACX450 Acoustic Guitar Amplifier:

          I have had a chance to do a couple of venues with this recently received amp. I often use a TC Helicon Harmony which only uses the XLR input. I wanted something around 20 lbs I could just grab and go with, instead of dragging 15in. PA speakers around all the time. The Behringers' sound is plenty powerful enough for even a moderate size room and in fact I used it last at an outdoors gig. It is very clean using a D-28 or electric and vocals, and I am very fussy re. good clean vocals. Bruce

          Comments about Behringer Ultracoustic ACX450 Acoustic Guitar Amplifier:

          This is a great little amp. I got this amp as a gift and loved it. I did end up returning it because I wanted to have a line out, but thats the only problem I had with it. It had a great sound, plenty of bass, but a nice rounded out sound and will also get pretty loud. I only had it on 2 to drown out my acoustic, and its a fairly loud acoustic.

          Very good amp

          Comments about Behringer Ultracoustic ACX450 Acoustic Guitar Amplifier:

          Very nice looking and powerful on channel 1. Problem for me I need to run two instruments and channel 2 is a line, mike channel. The line 1/4 in plug lacks power. Maybe needs preamp. My solution is using a direct box to convert from high impedience to low through the mike input. Using channel 1 for lap steel guitar and #2 for guitar. Wish channel 2 had an instrument input. Otherwise very good amp.

          Behringer may be the best-kept secret in pro audio.

          By Jose Martinez

          Comments about Behringer Ultracoustic ACX450 Acoustic Guitar Amplifier:

          I've been looking for an acoustic amp for my Taylors, and tried several brands. I had never heard of Behringer, but loved the sound, the build quality of the cabinet, and just couldn't believe the price! Something had to be wrong with all this, it didn't add up. I did a bit of research, especially the company story on behringer.com. WOW. These guys are serious, committed, and most of all, exude ethics and quality. They have their own factory (Behringer City) in China, the owner and founder moved to China for over a decade to set this up, and they don't believe in contract assembly or labor at all, they control every element of production, including growing their own trees to produce the pulp for their speaker cones. WOW. The company motto was "twice the features at half the price", and boy, do they deliver. So, I bought the ACX450, and have been literally blown away. Clear, no hiss, just gorgeous, deep sound. I get the Taylor tone, only amplified. I couldn't be happier. Every now and then a company comes around with a new design philosophy, new production techniques, and a sense of ethics and responsibility to their employees and customers. Behringer is such a company. (BTW, I have nothing to do with them, I'm simply a very-impressed engineer and amateur guitar player). Check this companies products out, you'll be in on one of the best secrets in the pro audio industry. Every review of this amp gives it 5 stars. 18 reviews. That's no accident. Thank you Mr. Behringer and your 3000 employees, you have my gratitude and admiration.

          Very nice sound for the price

          Comments about Behringer Ultracoustic ACX450 Acoustic Guitar Amplifier:

          I agree with all comments, pretty loud for a 45 watt, sounds nice, no noise, etc, etc. Only thing that I didn't like and I just notice after two days that I bought this amp is that it doesn't have a line out to conect it directly to a mixer. Oh well I guess I will have to use a microphone coming out of the mixer when playing live with my band. Yes buy it, but have in mind of having an extra mic coming from your mixer if you play in big venues if you want to be heard.

          solid acoustic guitar amp

          By JohnE

          from Mandeville, LA

          Comments about Behringer Ultracoustic ACX450 Acoustic Guitar Amplifier:

          I have a Larivee acoustic with a Fishman pickup. I don't gig. I just like to play. I had been looking for some kind of amp for a while and was thinking Fender, Line6, Roland. I saw this amp on sale for $179 on the GC website. Never heard of Behringer. There were 14 reviews. Not only were all reviews good; none had a negative word. So, I read and thought and decided to buy. I am adding another all positive review for this great amp. Solid, clean/strong sound, no hiss, nice fx - reverb, mod, delay, mod/delay - independent volume controls, instrument and mic inputs, footswitch. I lucked out with no-charge shipping and paid just under $200 with sales tax for delivery to my front door. A great buying experience for a great product.

          Behringer ACX 450

          By Richard Hallmark

          from Mount Dora, FL

          Comments about Behringer Ultracoustic ACX450 Acoustic Guitar Amplifier:

          As a beginner I was looking for an amp that would provide rich sound, but wouldn't cost an arm and a leg. I also didn't want an amp that would take up alot of room in my study where I practice. My cousin in California recommended the Behringer ACX 450. I purchased it from the Guitar Center and am completely satisfied with my purchase. The sound is rich, room filling without having to crank it up all the way, and the special effects will blow your mind. It is small enough to have under my desk so it is out of the way, but yet readily accessable. The sound is incredible!

          Absolute Steal

          By Chase

          from Texas

          Comments about Behringer Ultracoustic ACX450 Acoustic Guitar Amplifier:

          I have to say that i am in shock right now. I just got this amp in a few days ago and it amazes me. Plugging it in and turning it on produces no buzzing, humming, or any background sound! The very first strum on the guitar sealed my love for this amp. It puts out a crisp, clear, and clean sound that rivals my cousins $700 acoustic amp. Plus with all the features, pedal, and mic hook up it comes with.....this amp is an outright steal! If you're going to be playing big gigs then sure, go bigger, but if you play small shows like me (family reunions, karaoke etc.) this amp is perfect for you.
