I bought the Acoustasonic along with a Martin 000C-16RGTE AURA. I "thought" the Fender was a good choice. When I got home with it, I thought my AURA was why the sound coming out was so dead and brittle. I fooled with the EQ on both the guitar and amp with no luck. I was dumbfounded. I'm no pro, but I know what sounds good and doesn't, and the Fender just doesnt do the Martin ANY justice. So I took it back to GC and swapped it for the Marshall AS50R. Lets see...NIGHT AND DAY! Within 2 minutes, the Marshall was dead-on reproducing the sound of my Martin at every volume level, somthing the Fender couldn't do. Yeah, the Fender had some cool digi. effects, but thats only a selling point. Honestly, the Fender was a huge dissapointment. Plug into each and hear for yourself.

I went to GC and i played the amp for a while and it sounded pretty descent. I was told the amp is very loud for a 30 watt and is gig compatible......WRONG. First off my 15 watt marshall is louder than this, and the amp kept making an explosion type noise when you use both channels. For a practice amp it is descent but i do not suggest it if you are in a band that plays alot of acoustic. Its a good thing i got my money back.

great amp

By Doc Kavanagh

from Rochester , N.Y

Comments about Fender Acoustasonic 30 DSP Combo Amp with Effects:

This is the best amp I have tried for acoustic guitars . Works great with my Taylor in church . Makes the guitar very controllable . With normal settings the guitar sounds great throughout the sanctuary . Works well stand alone , with a mic , or lined out .

Good little amp

By Luvmyseagull

from Tennessee

Comments about Fender Acoustasonic 30 DSP Combo Amp with Effects:

I bought this amp about a year ago. I record with it and also use it at church. I play a Seagull Artist through it. It took a while for me to get the sound where I wanted it, but after some tweaking, it sounds great. It is not a very loud amp. It is okay for small solo gigs, but if you play in a band, you will have to mike it or use the external speaker jack to the PA or a cabinet to be heard. I've had fun with the DSP effects. My favorite on this is the delay. If you want a really loud amp, you'll have to go with something more powerful than 30 watts, but for small gigs or recording, it works well.

Great Amp!

By Timmy Ya

from Gilbert AZ

Comments about Fender Acoustasonic 30 DSP Combo Amp with Effects:

Bought mine at GC after trying a few different acoustic combo amps. It is best to try it with the make of the guitar you plan to use, it sounds very different with different guitars. I use a Gibson and the sound is FANTASTIC. With only 30 amps, you will need to mic it in or use the line out. As the sound comes from both a cone and tweeter, it is hard to mic, so it is better to use the line out and it sounds GREAT through a mixer board! Give one a try!

Comments about Fender Acoustasonic 30 DSP Combo Amp with Effects:

i like the amp with my martin DCX1E. PLug and play it sounds incredible. My neighbors, knock on my door complaining about the music coming from my apartment. Its just me playing. I've only had it a couple weeks, and the effects along with different playing styles allow you to make incrediblly strange sounds from and accoustic electric, its interesting and worth every penny

Surprise, surprise, surprise

By alex

from chappaqua ny

Comments about Fender Acoustasonic 30 DSP Combo Amp with Effects:

I got this little amp because I wanted a better sound out of my Taylor T5 - and man, I wasn't ready for how good it sounded, and how many deep timbres I can get by adjusting bass/mid/treble! This thing just keeps dragging me downstairs to play more, and even tunes I've long since grown sick of sound fresh. I had low expectations for the DSP's - but they also enrich the experience. The delay is no substitute for a real delay unit - but it's so easy to tag in - as long as you keep the fx level low, it sounds surprisingly good, + low levels of chorus or reverb to give a range of subtle fx warmth. the only thing missing is a headphone jack. this is a great buy at the price. Weirdly - my telecaster/bridge sounds great through it too - that little tweeter can sing!

Great Amp!

By Capulera

from Panama City Beach, FL

Comments about Fender Acoustasonic 30 DSP Combo Amp with Effects:

You know,.. I was impressed with this 30w amp. Its not that lous but for practice and recording this thing rocks!! I sing and play through this amp and it makes some interesting sounds from my Acoustic electric. Definately worth the money! It goes beyond what the purpose of a 30w amp is intened for.

Quiet

By Kyle Spinks

from Bowie, MD

Comments about Fender Acoustasonic 30 DSP Combo Amp with Effects:

This is amp is extremely quiet. I have a Taylor 114-CE which is a grand auditorium body. Playing the Taylor unplugged comepetes with this amp on 10. The amp is barely loud enough to be a monitor for me on stage and at home its pointless. When the chorus is switched on with the dial at 1 there is too much chorus and I cannt hear any difference with or without reverb.

Excellent Acoustic Amp

By Mark Black

from Rochester, NY

Comments about Fender Acoustasonic 30 DSP Combo Amp with Effects:

I just purchased this amp to use with my Ovation Acoustic Electric GC057 I got for Christmas. I just love this amp as it is so versatile. The 30+ different effects are amazing. I'm still experimenting, but so far my favorites are chourus and delay. They will launch you into outer space. The tone that this amp gives is so crystal-clear. I also like the cabinet which you can tilt-back and use like a monitor if your playing sitting on a stool. Or you can stand it up straight like if your playing on a stage. Nice feature to manage any feedback are the Phase switch and String Dynamics control reins in any harsh treble. I wasn't sure if 30watts was going to be powerful enough, but it certainly is more power than I need for playing in the house. If I ever need to play at church or a small club, this amp will get the job done. I had a twin-reverb amp back in the 1970's which I sold to pay for college. My experience with that amp was so positive that 30+ years later, I could only think about Fender for my next purchase. I can safely say that the quality and sound from Fender sounds better than every.
