I have been thinking I needed a good acoustic amp for a few years, but I hadn't seen anything that excited me, until I started seeing these pop up in reviews.. where they sounded awesome. I took my favorite acoustic guitar into Sam Ash, Springfield NJ, one day, and was immediately struck by the depth and clarity of the sound I was getting from the Fender Acoustic Pro amp! As I worked the 4 band eq and the built in reverb, I could hear the sound I have always imagined I was capable of producing. However, THE BEST part of this amp was revealed after taking it home. My Shure M-58 and vocals were loud and natural sounding, with the reverb absolutely perfect for voice! Even better, the amp has built in phantom power for mic on both channels.. no need for a mic pre-amp. The vocals and guitar can be balanced.. no need for a mixer. The amp sound is loud and clear.. no need for a PA system at small to mid-sized venues. and, WOW! the amp weighs only 25 lbs! A guitar, this amp and a mike stand, and I've got the whole system carried in on one trip! Everything I could imagine I needed was all here, in a compact, beautiful amplifier. My Sam Ash salesman, Mike Tags made the deal happen quickly and professionally in a cash and trade-in package deal! THIS amp is a GAME CHANGER!
