Useful amp, where's the bag & extra battery pack?
As a user of the AC-60 for several years, I purchased this little brother AC-33 to handle gigs that require battery power, like weddings in parks. I like the amp. The sound is good and loud enough for my needs when running battery powered. The looper is cool, although I don't use it. However, I do miss some of the features that came with my AC-60. Can't Roland make a gig bag for this, even if it's sold separately? In New Orleans, transportability is everything, we're the land of the mobile musician, walking several blocks to gigs often; the bag on my AC-60 has served me well for this, and I use it with the AC-33 too, although it's not a perfect fit. And the battery pack design seems well set up to handle quick convenient replacement by simply switching out cartridges- only problem- Why can't I buy an extra cartridge? Also, I miss phantom power and a mic/line switch for the gain on the mic channel. As is, with a Beta58 mic for vocals, it seems like the only useable gain range is between 8 and 10, everything else is barely audible. If you need a compact battery powered amp, this is great, but if battery power is not necessary, I would highly recommend getting an AC-60 instead. Or get both, like me!
