Although there are many acoustic amplifiers on the market today, few of them can compete with the rich, natural tone of the compact Roland AC-60 Acoustic Chorus Combo Amp. This innovative stereo amp uses sophisticated digital signal processing to deliver a crisp sound with lush stereo/multiband chorus--including a new wide mode--plus delay/reverb and impressive Auto Anti-Feedback control. And with its 2-channel Mic/Line design and standmountable configuration, the AC-60 is clearly heads above the competition.

This is a great "little" amp....little with a big sound. I replaced a very good acoustic amp 5 years ago that I used with a contemporary church Praise Band, and wouldn't think of using anything else. I recently replaced another amp with a 2nd AC-60 for venues outside our church. This amp gives me whatever I need with my Taylor 714. It gives me that pure, natural Taylor acoustic sound when I need it, and blends some unbelievable chorus tones that I have never been able to get with other much more expensive amps. And, though it looks like a coffee shop amp, I have used this amp in 500-1000 seat auditoriums without running through a house system or micing, and it more than covers the areas with the same quality sound. It is definitely the most versatile (and lightest) acoustic amp I have ever owned, and I've never had a single problem with it. Simply put, it's the best. Not the best for the money...the best!
I recently purchased the AC-60 as a replacement for an Acoustic AG-60, which I purchased at GC when I traded in an old Fender tube amp that I didn't use much anymore because I mainly play an acoustic guitar now. I liked the AG-60 for the most part, except that it was heavy and had a low hum when I cranked up the volume and master controls together. Folks at GC made the exchange easy. They ordered the Roland AC-60 and it arrived in less than a week. Great GC service and I'm ecstatic with my new amp. Incredibly quiet and clean sounding. Love the chorus/delay and reverb effects, though for the kind of music I play (fingerpicking) I don't use the chorus all that much and only a little reverb; still, fun to play around with everything. Volume is also plenty loud enough for most coffee house/church settings. Bottom line is that I have been able to replicate my acoustic sound without much of a problem using both pickups and a mic. I would highly recommend this amp to anyone in the market for an acoustic amp.
I wont duplicate what others are saying about this amp. The other thing I use this amp for is to use it as a karaoke system. I plug in my laptop playing itunes through the connectors at the back, and with a nice mike the AC60 converts to a karaoke machine...and it sounds pretty good
I got mine about 2 weeks ago and I was impressed with its size and the bag that it comes with. It is smaller than a boombox!! Yet the sound that comes out of it is simply divine!! I used to have a Crate (the green one with 30W) and the Roland is far superior. No buzzing, hum, etc. Just pure sound. It is also louder (2x30W vs. 1x30W), lighter and smaller. Feedback is very well controlled (a problem I had with the Crate). The effects, I am still trying to get the hang of them. I did not get the footpedal. I still do not know if I need it. This is a great amp! Worth every penny!!
I bought this Roland AC-60 this weekend. It's the amp I've been looking for. I recenly had played in a band that plays classic rock, country and blues. I have turned to all acoustic music now The natural tone is great. I love the chorus and reverb and the 2 seperate channels with the independent EQ's. I played the Marshall AS50D, the Fender Acoustasonic Jr and the Roland. The Marshall was close but the Roland had a bit more natural tone and the Roland has the "Midd's" control. The light weight was a plus for me. I would recommend this amp to my friends.
I purchased a Fender Accoustisonic amp and took it back - it made my Taylor sound like a fuzzy-funky electric - not what I was looking for. The Roland gave me just what I needed - it lets my beautiful Taylor sound like... well, a beautiful Taylor, just louder for a gig situation. The amp does have some effects, but I really like the clean un-fussy way it amps the natural sound of my guitar. I also am very happy with the vocal mike channel. I highly recommend this item, and the size of this little thing!! Wow: a big plus for a tired old lady like me - I am soooo over schlepping heavy equipment. The stand (rebate) is also a plus.
This amp is an awsome. It has a clear tone. The only thing that I wish it had more of is bass capability. I always feel that I'm going to blow the speakers if I turn the bass up all the way, or even 4/5 the way. But then again I baby the thing.
This is an absolutely amazing acoustic amp. It's so versatile! I play in two bands at church, a praise and worship band and a Christian rock band. The reverb, chorus, and delay are just awesome. I will never buy another amp.
This is one of the most transparent acoustic amps I have ever used, DEFINITELY the most transparent under a grand. This thing does exactly what it is supposed to - it amplifies your guitar. It doesn't color it, it doesn't put it through a million effects, it just makes it louder. And it does it masterfully. My only complaint - I wish they had a larger version, maybe a 4x10 variety or something for those bigger venues. I play acoustic folk with this amp, as well as solo acoustic projects, and it has never let me down - it's built like a brick. A fantastic amp!
I purchased this amp over a year ago to use in church as my monitor and DI for an acoustic electric guitar. I was totally happy with the natural acoustic sound, and the amp had more than enough power to fill the church on the few occasions where the main PA failed. My criticisms may be minor to some, and admittedly I am very picky. I really wish that the line level XLR outputs had a switchable pad to allow for connection to a microphone level input. As it stands I need to use a XLR attenuator or direct box to tame the signal by -20 db. It works fine but is another piece of gear I have to remember to bring. I would have also liked a more secure way to clip the kickstand. Currently there is a nylon clip reminiscent of an old zip tie, not at all consistent with the rest of the package. I do like the shoulder bag but the strap gets cinched at it's attachment point on the bag. Also, the strap cannot be shortened maximally, and there is no top handle on the bag, which means it has to stay on your shoulder or you need to use two hands to carry the bag. Ultimately I decided it was easier to carry the unit by the handle and only use the bag to protect it in the truck. Nevertheless, the true test of this unit is that I decided to keep using it, even after experimenting with all sorts of direct box combinations including a Roland AD-8, CM-30 monitor, and Behringer GI-100 and BBE DI-1000 direct boxes. I use this amp with a Guild Peregrine, a Whirlwind -20 db XLR pad, a Korg CA-30 tuner, and a FS-5L switch to control muting. It's great!
