    What a beauty!

    I have played through Fenders since the early 60's. I have a 1965 Twin Reverb sitting next to my new Acoustic Pro. This is to acoustic what the Twin Reverb was to electric. Besides being a beautiful amp, it delivers a crisp natural acoustic sound. I am playing a Taylor Presentations Series Grand Symphony through it, and the reproductive sound is perfect. I couldn't be happier.

    Fender Acoustic Pro 200W

    I just did my first live performance, Wow!!! The tonal clarity, the power, the articulation and the sweet, smooth tone were much more than I expected. Light, powerful and very attractive. A sweet reverb enhanced the sound and I used a chorus pedal through the effects loop for a 12 string effect on some of the songs. I would recommend this amp and Sweetwater to any serious performer. I look forward to using it on the platform for praise and worship team next Sunday!

    Awesome Amp

    Acoustic amps are touchy. You can never be sure. When it sounds good or bad, you ask yourself, " was it the room? The strings? The guitar? The amp? Or a combination?
    Acoustic music is more difficult than hard loud rock. I have lived both, back and forth.
    This amp closes the gap that exists between acoustic amplified music done right and done not so right.
    Now I can agonize over my vocals.

    Acoustic Pro

    First of all, the cabinet is beautiful and the fact that it only weighs 27 lbs is very much appreciated. I had been using an old Kustom cab (12 + tweet) with a preamp and effects unit and I was reasonably happy with my sound but the cabinet began to have problems. I had tried some of the other "made for acoustic" amps out there and I just was never happy with the smaller drivers that are more typical, so I was looking for something pretty much just like this - although I was wary of the built-in effects and whether it would compare favorably with my old TC Electronic reverb/compression. I've used it at 2 gigs so far, and basically it took 7 sets to feel like I'd finally found the "sweet spot". This box has good low end but I think one of the main differences, compared to my old set up, is the 2.5" horn - it took quite a bit of experimenting with the sweepable mids and treble controls to find what I think is close to what I wanted in tone. The phase switch has worked perfectly in eliminating feedback and, so far, I haven't had to touch the tone controls to address that problem. Just as I knew it would be, the reverb is different than what I am used to, but if you give it just a little, it's nice and you get used to it fast - not bad at all, actually - of course, as you turn it up it starts to suck. At 200W this combo amp has plenty of headroom and the simple design is great - very straight forward - and if you can't live with the reverb, it does have an effects loop. Also, the DI sounds great, as is typical of Fender products. There are some features I wish it had (built-in compressor would be nice and some ability to control the output of the DI (level, pre/post EQ)) but I think I like it a lot. The "kick stand" is nice, but not really enough for my group's needs, so I'm still putting it on an amp stand for now. I haven't tried the second channel and, honestly, probably never will, but with the fact that either side accommodates XLR or 1/4" and that the reverb is independent, it seems like it would actually work well for a solo gig. So, overall, I'm happy with my purchase. I like hauling less and lighter gear but I may wind up going back to using my TC Electronics effects unit (there's just something about TC Elec reverb that is unmatched by anything else I've ever even heard and I like having a bit of compression too) but even if I do, I'm happy to have such a good looking, well functioning, combo amp with great low end and plenty of ***** for live shows.

    Try it first....

    I was really excited to try out this amp. I loved the look. I had hopes from Fender electric guitar amps that the sound would be great. At 200W, this amp certainly has good power. I put it on an amp stand to project sound a bit better. I wanted this for playing at an outdoor wedding with my Cordoba GK nylon and Taylor K24ce. But, when I had it powered up, there was a slight hissing sort of "white noise" sound emanating from the amp. Compare it to a Fishman Loudbox Artist, the Fishman was dead silent unless amplifying a sound I was producing from the guitar. Maybe I was being a bit too picky, but it was bugging me enough. The reverb on the Fender is great for a built-in effect. I think it would serve well for some, it just didn't meet my needs. I will now try a Bose L1 compact and see if that suits my needs better.
