Overview

The new Fender Acoustasonic 150 acoustic guitar combo amp is perfect for the acoustic guitarist who needs a light, loud, versatile, and flexible amp loaded with tonal innovations and useful features.

The Acoustasonic 150 combo packs full acoustic resonance and crystal clarity into a lightweight (only 23 lb.) amp with a new ultra-efficient 150-watt (2x75) stereo power amp, dual 8" foam-surround low-frequency neodymium drivers, and high-frequency tweeter. Its new Voicing control lets any guitar simulate the tonality of parlor, dreadnought, and jumbo acoustics. Or, Voicing can be turned off for pure amp output response. For acoustic players who double on electric guitar, the Voicing control also has Blackface, tweed, and British amp settings, which makes a second amp just for electric guitar unnecessary.

Other features include instrument and microphone channels with independent EQ and effects controls; new feedback elimination control with on/off switch for each channel; patented String Dynamics control that tames harsh treble notes; effects including reverb, delay, chorus, Vibratone, and more; XLR line out with level control and ground lift; stereo effects loop; USB connector for digital recording output (and possible future firmware updates); strong five-ply hardwood construction; and optional two-button effects-select footswitch.

I have been looking for a dual function amp like this for some time without success. I have also been looking for a quallity amp that does not break my back carrying it up a flight of stairs. I had actually given up until I saw an intial product demo of the Fender Acoustasonic 150. At first, I thought what I heard was too good to be true. A review in Acoustic Guitar magazine convinced me to try it and I'm glad I did. The massive number of features, the ability to play both acoustic and electric through it and the fact that I can also run a mic through it for single gigs made me a believer. A great buy for the money.
The first thing that attracted me to it was the fact that I can play both acousting and electric guitars through the same amp. I find a lot of occasions when I need this versatillity and have been hauling two amps around, especially for classic rock gigs where both types of instruments have traditionally been used. It's light weight (a plus as I get older), the feedback control is a blessing, and I like the fact that the tone controls allow both plus and minus modeling. My favorite is the voicing control. This little knob lets me reproduce the exact sound my guitar. I don't have to settle for just being close.
I am particularly impressed by the quality of the acoustic reproduction. I have played both a Martin 6-string and 12-string through a variety of acoustic amps and they have been OK, but not great. The first time I plugged my 6-string into the Acoustasonic 150, the sound quality was exactly like what was coming from the guitar. Older Acounstasonics are fine, but this is a 100% improvement. Additionally, the ability to also play my Telecaster or E-347 through it when using both for gigs saves me a trip with a second amp. I had watched the Fender product demo and one from Acoustic Guitar magazine, but reall didn't think it could be as good as they said until I tried it myself. I love it.
It's not cheap, but nothing worth using is. Given the number of features, the light weight, and quality of the sound it produces, its worth every cent.

I really wanted to like this amp. What's not to like for a happy hr. acoustic rock trio right. I imagined walking in to a club with an amp instead of having to use my PA with just my handy acoustisonic. I ordered this used from GC but in new condition. I will state I may have got a lemon. So I plugged my Gibson songwriter deluxe with LR Baggs element in and at first it sounded acceptable at low volumes I loved the reverb deep and transparent the fx and compression but turn it up past 3 to stage volumes and the amp sounded thin and boxy. Very prone to feedback. Its supposed to be 150 watts but you cant turn it up past halfway. When turning around even with my sound hole plug in to adjust anything like you would have to do at the bar it howled thru any of the amp models I tried. Using the anti feedback button did help with feed back but gutted the tones you were working on...it took way to long to get something that might work. I unplugged. I then plugged directly into a cheap Ahlto ts10 powered monitor and got much better results right away...loud no feedback and with my pedal board plenty of tone. It doesn't make sense to have to fight for a decent tone and volume when this amps supposed to be designed for this use. I like the amp format but sticking with my QSC pa and personal monitor. Took it back & bought the monitor = happy acoustic rocker ;). JMHO.

    Comments about Fender Acoustasonic 150 150W 2x8 Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

    I use this product for our praise team in church. The amp makes a hissing noise which is also amplified if I connect the amp to the PA system. It is also making a lot of feedback which is not managed by the anti feedback control. The amp is not heavy though, so it's easy to carry without breaking my back. I'm just wondering about the durability and quality of the product since it is made in Indonesia.

    Great tool for small solo gigs.

    Comments about Fender Acoustasonic 150 150W 2x8 Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

    This amp is exactly what I thought it would be. It is light weight, and very convenient for small solo performances. It is a relief not having to bring an entire small P.A. system just to mic vocals and plug in my guitar. My solo gear now consists of a guitar, mic, mic stand, and this amp. That's it! I was skeptical about the 8 inch speakers having enough low end, but they do the job just fine. I have a jumbo acoustic, and a thin profile classical guitar, and both have a very rich tone, with plenty of bass. The volume is much lower than you would expect from a 150W amp. According to fender, that is required to help control feedback issues that occur with electric acoustics. This amp is strictly for coffee shops, and small bars. As long as you use the "Pure Amp" setting, the volume is as I described. If you choose one of the modeling settings, the volume is reduced further. I don't recommend the modeling if you need maximum volume. But on the bright side, you can use the modeling to make a thin guitar like the Stratacoustic sound like a jumbo if you needed to. The DFX are great. Everything you could want is there. The knob allows you to blend certain effects. You don't just get reverb, chorus, or delay. You could have reverb, with a touch of chorus. Reverb with a lot of chorus. Chorus with Delay. Reverb with vibrato, etc. The microphone side very good. The addition of the tweeter really helps with the vocal. The only thing I'm missing is a middle E.Q. for the vocals. There is only bass and treble on the vocal side, and the amp has a little too much mids on the vocals for my taste. Can sound a little sqwaky. Chorus on the vocals warms it up a little. I thought the price was reasonable, considering the amount of gear that this amp actually replaces, but for the price they could have thrown in the footswitch. I chose not to purchase it. The switch only turns the effects on or off. Does not allow you to switch between effects or amp models.

    This is for my home studio. I have a Fender acoustasonic 90 (two actually) and they are great amps, but wanted something a bit bigger. This one filled the fill, makes the acoustic guitars sound very rich.

        Comments about Fender Acoustasonic 150 150W 2x8 Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

        I bought this amp to use for one horse gigs. I also wanted something that was equally good for acoustic and electric guitars, and vocals. Well this certainly meet the bill, the voicings for both guitars are good, and the effects are fine for what I do. The vocal part of the amp is also good , as long as you don't need a bunch of power. If I need more I have two other PA systems. The amazing thing is it is relatively light, so easy to carry and good for one horse gigs just the amp 2 guitars and mic and stand and ready to go. I would recommend this amp for the reasons mentioned above. I have been playing for over 30 years and have lots of equipment, but it is nice to take one amp for guitars and vocals. I also suggest to try it out yourself because you know what you need and what you are looking for. All that said it is a good amp and could be just you are looking for.

          Comments about Fender Acoustasonic 150 150W 2x8 Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

          If you play clean musically, and you play and sing in smaller venues, and you want simplicity, this Fender amp delivers. I sing, play harmonica, and perform with an incredible Epiphone flamed maple blond Elitist Casino. My style is old school 50-60s folk, rock, blues
          I play at coffee houses, community events, parties, local concerts, clubs and outside.
          I want a simple set up that can handle my set up.
          The 150 delivers beautifully.
          Powerful, good sound dispersion, looks great, very simple priced reasonable.
          Having the electric settings is the trick. I set at tweed with some delay for casino and get beautiful tone.
          I set mic with proper amount of reverb for voice and harmonica, and the compliments and good vibes start.
          When in larger venues, I can team up with my larger PA, but the 150 will cover 95% of my gigs. For non powered small jamming gigs I use a Roland street cube.
          The 150 is not for hard rockin', it is an acoustic or smooth electric player/singer
          Light weight and looks good too. Tilt back legs very cool.
          Downside? A bit boomy low end need to roll bass back. No built in tuner like Roland.
          My overall take is that I found exactly what I was looking for in the Fender Acoustasonic 150.
          I got an extra Ben Franklin off by buying Open Box, even better.

            Please be aware you will have to tweak into the sounds you like best. It has a wide range of sounds so you need to bring out the best ones to suit your taste. And you need to understand that being a non-tube amp it will sound a bit flat. The Fender amp I use for my electric has a way fatter tone. But it does not mean that this amp is bad. It's just different. I had spare equipment so I traded for this amp. I had just bought a nylon classical guitar and wanted an acoustic amp. I continue to find new sounds and enjoy this amp very much.

                  I don't own one of these, but I played a gig with a guitarist who had one.

                  This amp is just plain amazing! We were playing outdoors at a street dance, running only vocals through the PA. I was playing bass through two 15s, one guitarist had a 150 watt 2x12 and one had a 100 watt 1x12. The other guy had one of these. It looked, honestly, like he was going to be sonically invisible for the gig.

                  We did a couple of songs with him playing an acoustic through it, and it sounded fabulous! It kept up with all of us. Then he switched to a Strat. I thought "This is not going to be good.", but the Acoustisonic on the British setting sounded like like a Marshall Bluesbreaker was sitting back there!

                  I was impressed! On break, I had him show me the amp and the different settings. I'm here to tell you, if you are wondering if this amp can cut a gig, it really can!
