Worth the price!

Comments about AER Compact 60 60W 1x8 Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

I have been playing guitar for 50+ years. I have owned many good ( and heavy) acoustic amps, including Rivera, Crate, Fishman and Roland. This little 6.5 pound amp is the best. It is also great for electric jazz guitar.

    Comments about AER Compact 60 60W 1x8 Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

    I have been a big fan of AER for 20 years. I had a couple of their smaller Alpha units, but decided I wanted some more flexibility. I got that, but, not my purposes not sure if the upgrade was really that much of an upgrade. Sure I got another channel, more effects and another 20 watts, but the main thing was, I noticed a subtle change in the sound from the Alpha that I cannot put my finger on. It has to do with accuracy. Acoustic instrument are what you think about with an amp like this, but it also works well for electrics and takes pedals with aplomb. It's just a marvel of German precision engineering. I'm not unhappy with the upgrade even though it was quite a bit more expensive. I have tried a number of other acoustic amps over the years, Trace Elliott, which was excellent, and SWR which were my favorites till I glommed onto AER. As much as I loved the California Blonde, it was big and heavy, whereas the Compact 60 is small and light--and powerful and accurate.

      Comments about AER Compact 60 60W 1x8 Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

      Heard a friend in San Diego play his custom Goodall through a Compact 60 a couple years ago and couldn't believe the sound and clarity coming out of that little amp . Finally ordered one on-line from Guitar Center a couple weeks ago . The 15% off one-day-sale didn't hurt . Arrived in a little over a week . Can't stop playing my Taylor through it . Incredible definition and clarity . With all controls set flat , my guitar sounds exactly like it does acoustically , only louder . A lot louder . When the colour button is engaged , the amp is perfect for finger style . Disengage the colour button and boost the treble for harder strumming . Playing through the Compact 60 sounds like being miked in a studio more than playing out of an amp . Two reverbs ( I like #1 ) , delay ( not adjustable ) , and chorus ( nice for soft jazz ) . Effects loop . Padded carrying case for transporting the 15 lb. amp . Haven't tried a microphone in channel 2 yet , but my friend sounded great singing along with his Goodall and completely filled a medium sized venue . Comes advertised as suitable for electric instruments , too . All I know is my Taylor is having a love affair with my new amp .
