The multi-dimensional, stunning Stereo Field Expansion technology (SFX) goes beyond stereo for room-filling tonal imagery that envelops the listener in a rich acoustic experience. The amp imparts exciting, dynamic life to the onboard hall reverb, echo, delay and Vibratone effects”literally moving them around the listening area for amazingly deep tone. The integrated handle doubles as convenient cradle for mobile playback devices”perfect for adding accompaniment to your performance via the Aux In jack.

Other performance-friendly features include feedback-reducing phase switches, line output, fitted cover and a footswitch jack for the optional two- button effect bypass footswitch. From first glance, the Acoustic SFX amplifier is the essence of form and function.

Okay I played out tonight with the new Fender SFX amp at out local senior center jam session. I wanted to see and hear how well it would stand up in a live situation...so I came early and set up the amp....I played the new Pono DS-20 with the LR Baggs M80 pickup in it. I had about a half hour to kill so I just started noodling a few tunes, members of the crowd kept coming up and saying how good it sounded. The rest of the musicians got there and one by one noticed the new amp. I played it for about two hours with the rest of the band. I didn't play too loud so as to drown out the P.A. but I certainly could have. I played quietly to blend in....but still be distinctly heard. I got the low end growl I was looking for in the Pono, and that was with the bass turned down. My guitar sounded very clear and cut right thru all the noise. The P.A system has a SM57 directed at the lead singer's guitar. That sounded really boomy next to my amp...it didn't sound good at all next to my amp...the SFX sounded great and all the musicians noticed it. At the end of the night one musician asked if he could play his Guild thru it...I let him and he said that amp made his guitar sound like a million !! Which it did !!! He didn't say what kind of pickup he had but it must have had a pre-amp because his guitar was much louder than mine...I'm running in passive mode with no preamp.

The room was about 100' x 100', an old gymnasium, and the SFX had plenty of power to fill that room with sound !!!! We had a full house tonight and there was lots of crowd noise, but the SFX cut through all of it with plenty of power to spare. So all in all the live experiment with the SFX was a great success.

      I hope that Fender follows and improves on this design. I would surely buy the next generation of this amp after they upgrade it.

        Comments about Fender Acoustic SFX 2-Channel 160W Acoustic Guitar Stereo Amp:

        I demo'd this against several acoustic amps, including Roland and Fishman products, which were of course less expensive. I skipped the AER's because they were out of my price range. I left the store with my Fender SFX.

        I can't describe how clear and clean my sound is through this thing. The SFX works, it fills up the room. I found it easy to dial in my guitar sound with the eq. Tons of headroom.

        The thing I found most amazing was the vocal quality. So often, acoustic amp reviews only talk about the guitar experience. Vocally, nothing else I've sung through comes close. Hearing yourself well allows you to sing your best. It's my voice, uncolored, clear, the best I've ever sounded.

        My only complaint is most of the effects are unusable at higher than halfway up the Effects setting. Also, I wish the delay supported longer tap times.

        Other than that, this is my baby and along with my Muiderman guitar will serve as my rig for life.

        Comments about Fender Acoustic SFX 2-Channel 160W Acoustic Guitar Stereo Amp:

        This is a great little amp. It works great for getting together with friends, and family get togethers. It is easy to use, and the channels are totally independent. It could use a little more power, and I find that I have it maxed out a lot. Just love it though. Easier to use than the Fender Acoustasonic 150 that I was using. This thing is great for a wine tour performance.

          Comments about Fender Acoustic SFX 2-Channel 160W Acoustic Guitar Stereo Amp:

          This amp is a jewel... I was very impressed with the sonic details and Fender's use of the modulated "Stereo" effect that is used in it. The Other effects were superb. ( I do wish there was a few more combinations, but isn't the full point of this piece of gear) I can't say enough about it's design and looks. The use of The outputs are perfect for both stage and recording.What a beautiful piece of art... and the commitment that fender made to think out of the "box"...
