I have used this amplifier for two weeks. The Acoustic A1000 Amplifier clearly duplicates the tonal sounds of my Tag Tramontane acoustic guitar with the clean "no effects" setting. I especially like the ability to shift the frequency response mid point. The pre-programed effects are nice and are easy to select for use. An experienced sound person can readily create and save a custom effects to get the sounds you want for your instrument or vocals. The controls feel like high quality and the cabinet is solid. I tested the "Bluetooth" connection with my cell phone and worked first try and the mp3 music sounded great. The Auxiliary input worked fine for use with my karaoke player deck. My standard mics and the wireless mic system worked great with the A1000. The sound volume was as expected. Don't expect 100 Watt sound out of a 50 Watt Channel. Both channels work with instruments or microphones and in combination. I have not experienced any interference/static. Not sure how well the anti-feed-back will work with the volume up at full power. I will use the A1000 in my home studio and for family and social events. Great amplifier for the money!

    Comments about A1000 100W Stereo Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

    I've had this amp for a few weeks now and I love it. It sounds really good. Being able to add a vocal effect like small or large hall and others is fantastic. I usually play the guitar with no effects with a medium Hall effects on the voice. To me and the guys I jam with it sounds much better than my Fender Acoustisonic 150. I love the cool retro look to it as well.

    Comments about A1000 100W Stereo Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

    Wish it explained features, loop, back side, Bluetooth, etc. I used to be a professional vocalist, jazz, rock, soul, gospel. At 70, I do it for pleasure, I can chord but average on that end, I love the 4 channels and the built in 48V phantom power on every channel, slowly putting together home recording studio. My wife is an excellent singer, love to sing harmony with her and to record a cd would be a dream come true, this stereo amp is a great start.

        Comments about A1000 100W Stereo Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

        Intention was to use this amp in all my performances thinking the two stereo channels would permit the wife to plug in with her mic along with my mic and guitar. And that worked. But two weeks after purchase the #2 channel EFX display window had dimmed so much that the display is unreadable unless you get directly in front and close in to the amp. Then one of the toggle buttons for the EFX display jammed in the down position. Had to use a very small screw driver to get it to release. All of this occurred the week after I threw the shipping containers away.

        Comments about A1000 100W Stereo Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

        With four inputs with individual volume controls and phantom power, and two separate effects chains it seems well capable for an acoustic duo to gig with, or for an individual to use with a couple of guitars. I run my jazz box through a pedal board into it, and it sounds sweet.

        I do have a couple of quibbles:

        The aux input works great. The Bluetooth is a problem. it seems to have a range of about 5 feet, which is totally silly.

        Also, when you power it on, it does not remember what effects were active, and goes immediately to "dry no effects". On the other hand, when you move to an effect, either something built in or a user preset, you can't go back to dry without turning it off.
        from to initial setting, you have to hit the up button to get to the presets, or the down button to get to the user presets, which means the first user preset is #20 rather than #1. This seems kind of counter intuitive, to say the least.

        So - not perfect, but sounds good, is reasonably priced and very portable. I like that I can leave it set up in the den so I can practice with a mike and amplification.

            Recently bought a acoustic electric guitar and wanted an amp that a would reproduce the acoustic sound. Very happy with the sound of this amp as opposed to the other amps I have that do produce a better sound with solid body electric guitars.

              Would like to see a video explaining the various effects, and how to collectively set them. Literature attached was very brief. Mine was a great price for a great amp .. I purchased it on cyber - Monday ( 15% off 1 item), at the Stupid Deal of the Day price!!
