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!

We are an acoustic duo-trio, play small venues around 3-5 times/month and have been working with two of these units for the past 6 months. They were purchased from different dealers in No. Cal. two weeks apart. We like the sound, portability and features. The phantom power, interconnectibility to other speakers, systems, amps, subs, external fx, and phones make these very versatile and flexible. At smaller joints we tend to split-feed our unpowered mix into (usually 3 acoustic guitars, and 2 mikes), these, set them on stools behind us in opposite corners and gig away. Great sound, lightweight, quick setup, feedback resistance and self-monitoring. For us, perfect. For more punch we sometimes connect a bottom eq'd Fender Delux or similar to the AR-60 sub out. When there is house sound (always notoriously unpredictable as is the house sound guy!), we tend to take l-r feeds from the house mix into one channel of each AR-60, and pump our acoustic guitars directly into the other channel. We are known to be picky and find that most venues don't have much of a sense for clarity, eq, dynamics, and feedback of acoustic instruments. They are mostly concerned with LOUD! With this setup, WE control the clarity as well as some of the vocal projecton and these things are very pure. We focus on tight harmonies and balanced acoustic delivery. Our audiences (including the sound guy) are usually amazed at our sound because WHEN THESE THINGS WORK, THEY ARE TERRIFIC! Now for the bad stuff: We have never topped them out, fed them a hot signal, spilled beer on them, or otherwise abused them. However BOTH have suffered fried transformers. At separate times, at different locatons, NOT connected to outboard gear, when powered but idle, for no apparent reason they simply died. Kaput! Gig over! Now Roland claims no problems but we are 2 for 2 so their claim is highly suspect. Then when you send your unit in to Roland for warranty service, you wait, wait, wait, and finally when YOU call THEM the rap is that they are waiting for a new transformer to arrive from Japan---another 2-3 weeks or so!!! Bottom line: If you like these boxes, and there is a lot to like, and rely on them like we do, you should think about purchasing a spare to keep you in operation when the transformer fries. Having been through all this, we are currently doing our homework on the BOSE pal system...

    Comments about Roland AC-60 Acoustic Chorus Combo Amp:

    I love this little guy. The sound/tone quality is amazing and I would highly recommend this unit to everyone that plays and sings in a home environment or out in small public gigs. Independent mic and instrument controls are great. On the down side, I don't recommend it for use in large or dance bar venues as it lacks in range. Maybe the AC90 would be better but I generally use a larger unit and still use the AC60 for sound effects.

    The Best.....I own 2 AC-60's

    By Steve

    from Kingsport, TN

    Comments about Roland AC-60 Acoustic Chorus Combo Amp:

    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!

    Great Little Amp

    By Douglas Craig

    from Tucson, AZ

    Comments about Roland AC-60 Acoustic Chorus Combo Amp:

    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.

      Comments about Roland AC-60 Acoustic Chorus Combo Amp:

      I've been through a couple acoustic amps lately including a Fishman Loudbox Mini, Crate CA-60D, and Acoustic AG-60. The Roland AC-60 is by far my favorite. It's not the loudest of the bunch and it doesn't have the effects of some, but what it does have is a clarity of sound -especially for vocals. All the amps I mentioned are great for acoustic guitars. I couldn't really tell you which is truly the best for that. But the Roland shines if you want to sing along with a guitar. With it's smaller size and the carrying case, it's much more portable than the others. Also of note is an output for a subwoofer if you choose to extend the sound range. The bass is slightly lacking since it only has 6 1/2" speakers. I would go for the AC-90 with the 8" speakers if I could afford it. But I'm more than happy with the AC-60.

      Works as Karaoke System

      Comments about Roland AC-60 Acoustic Chorus Combo 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

      A beautiful sound from a little box

      By MIGUEL C

      from Mason, Ohio

      Comments about Roland AC-60 Acoustic Chorus Combo Amp:

      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!!

      A beautiful little amp with an incredible sound

      By Still rockin' at middle age

      from Mason, Ohio

      Comments about Roland AC-60 Acoustic Chorus Combo Amp:

      I am very happy I bought this little thing!!! It is delightful to play and record with it. If I ever venture into playing in public, I will consider buying its bigger brother (AC-90). I tried that one at the store and it blew me away. I just could not justify the price difference for what I do, music speaking.
      I got my Roland AC-60 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. I am still playing with the settings for recording since it gives you two options (mic & line-out; the line-out has also two options: stereo (XLR) and mono (1/4"); need more time to evaluate all these options). Definitely, one could create a "wall of sound" with this amp by using all options: mic, line-out and mic the guitar. Place each on separate channels, adjust the Pan & EQ for sound distribution and tone and you can sound like playing 3 or 4 different guitars. This is a great amp! Worth every penny!!
      It looks very solid built. The bag that it comes with is beautiful and very practical. I wonder if it would fit as a carry-on in a plane.
      It is a little on the expensive side; yet, it is a Roland!!! This is my third Roland amp. The other two are keyboard amps for my Yamaha. I also used them as my main PA system for my recording studio and for my Roland electronic drum set.

      Great Transparent Amp

      By pickin fool

      from New hampshire

      Comments about Roland AC-60 Acoustic Chorus Combo Amp:

      I've owned and used this amp for 3yrs now. It is without a doubt best in it's class for it's size and power. The 3 different chouruses sound fantastic, just about every input and output feature you'll ever need, great feedback control,and nice reverb. This little box can get pretty loud and still maintain transparency in it's sound. it also responds very well to EQ adjustments. i use it as a moniter when running out to a board, and when using it out right for small to medium rooms I'll plug in a 150 watt Infinity powered subwoofer.I play a Gibson SJ 200 thru a Baggs DI, and the AC 60 really sends it home. Mounting it up on a speaker stand really helps it to fillout a medium size room.I have not had ANY reliability issues at all, It's light weight and came with a great carrying case. All around just a great amp in it's price range.

      I love this Acoustic amp. It is great sounding and it has pretty long sound range. A good mic and guitar is all a musician needs with an Amp like this. I've had this Amp for five years. Thank you Roalnd for a quality product that is well made and durable.SERGIO TORRES
