    Roland AC-60RW. What a Great Amp!!

    From the time I first turned on my AC-60RW, I knew I made the right purchase. Such great tone from a small package. It made my Taylor 314ce come to life. I also tried my hollow and semi hollow Gibson
    guitars on this baby and I was pleasantly surprised. The input and output options make this a great amp for small to medium gigs and
    a "no brainer" for home practice.

    Great little acoustic amp

    I am using this amp primarily with a little Martin LX1E, and the sound is fantastic. The rosewood finish gives it a nice retro look as well. I have also used it with my iphone with our youth group for some background tunes while not playing, and it sounds great for that as well. All in all I am very pleased with the quality of sound and build. The included soft case is a nice bonus and provides very good protection for hauling this around.

    Rosewood amp

    This little box sounds like a big box and my acoustic guitar sounds amazing and it looks so cool.

    Impressive Amplifier

    Purchased this little amp to use out in small to medium venues. Hooked it up in my studio to get aquainted with it first and found it to be a great piece of gear in terms of sound quality and ease of operation. Also, this amp has some of the best chorus and reverb programs I have ever heard, and the anti-feedback system is spot on. As I expected, the bass frequencies are a bit thin because of the speaker size, but when I routed it into my main PA system this small amp made a huge impact on my sound quality and control. In short, a very worthwhile investment for my professional needs.

    Well rounded choice.

    1. Great Tone. Guitar, mandolin, and vocals are full, articulate. EQ controls are very effective. On board reverb is a nice touch.
    2. Good volume. Great for filling small rooms, cafes, etc or as an onstage monitor with a band.
    3. Super portable, great carry case with shoulder strap.
    Cons: Difficult to use as monitor unless it's pointed directly at your ears. Speakers have a narrow spread within 5-6 feet. Fills a room nicely but standing next to it I can barely tell it's on. It's not an open back amp, that could be why.

    Not for me

    I purchased this in hopes that it would provide a natural and clean sound for my gypsy swing guitar. The guitar pickup is either K&Ks or audio technica Pro 70. Unfortunately the sound is not very natural and muddy. I also have a high end flamenco guitar that has no pickup and this amp is useless when trying to mic a nylon using a sennheiser 421.
    I also was hoping to use this with my nylon whenever I play weddings and had to use the battery pack but there is no way I would be able to get the volume needed to project outside.

    I feel this amp works best for guitars with on-board preamps and pickups. The only time I have been able to get a decent sound was when I ran my guitar through a fishman preamp in the 2nd channel, and that's definitely not the point in having an acoustic amp.
    The amp sounded great with my D'angelico archtop though; very warm and present. I have a DV Mark Jazz Amp for that so the AC33 is still useless to me.
    I will be returning this. Thank you, Sweetwater, for have an excellent return policy and also being within driving distance!!!
