Comments about A40 40W Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

Let's start with the good. Nice sound. Looks good. Average portability. Many good DSP presets. 8 inch speaker is a nice size. Good feedback control. Bluetooth is nice. Great price. Dual 1/4 or XLR is good. Pre out with variable volume is good. Ok now the not so good. 40 watts solid state is not very much at all. Would be hard to play in anything but a small room. EQ doesn't seem to do much but takes up space. Main DSP settings are good. The DSP buttons are confusing. Takes a long time to learn and even then isn't intuitive. Manual doesn't explain much at all and there's little references online. I got it, but when I did I saw the short comings. Unlike the competitors there's no way to limit the effects to an input. In other words if you like reverb on the guitar it appears you're stuck with it on the voice too. Also, if you want to put a custom name to save presets it's difficult to enter letters. Seems like half the alphabet is there or something. Bluetooth button is way on the back instead of being close to the bluetooth light in the front. Finding it the 1st time is an adventure. I'm a programmer and when things are this confusing it annoys me. If you can live with the standard presets and don't care that the DSP effects aren't exclusive to input 1 or 2 (1 typically has the guitar and 2 has a mic) and can live with not too much volume that this is it. For me it's not. I'll upgrade to a classic acoustic amp that has a good track record even if it's a little more expensive.

      Comments about A40 40W Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

      I ordered this amp under the impression that it was an open box, but the amp was in 100 percent working from factory condition. I received my gear very quickly which was awesome, but when I opened the box and expected to be able to hook up my Boss RC-300 and stuff up to not and jam. Well... The amp was completely useless. The amp put out zero sound under any condition and had the worst buzz when just sitting plugged in. I bought this amp because the website said it was in perfect working order, which it was not. When I called musicians friend to rectify the situation, the very best they could come up with was to email me a shipping label and I could mail them the faulty amp back and I could buy a new amp at full price. Well this doesn't sit very well with me. If someone orders an amp that you specifically say works on your website and when they get it has zero capacity to operate as an amp, we clearly have a bigger problem than just a refund. I will forever question the intergrity of this company as a whole. This is not the way to treat customers who spent money at your business.

        Comments about A40 40W Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

        I own a 1975 S.L. Mossman Great Plains guitar.
        Some years ago I had a LR Bean I beam pickup installed. I purchashed a Fishman Perfomer Pro amp that cost a lot of cash at the time. I hated the sound, thougt it was the pickups. Evenually I sold the amp and just gave up on the guitar as an electric. Then a few weeks ago I purchased the Acoustic 40 Watt amp just for S..t's and giggles.
        Wow, is all I can say. The guitar sounded unbelievable. Feedback which was always a problem with the Fishman is under controll. What a sweet little amp.

                I would have been 100% satisfied for a replacement Acousic A40 amp OR a repaired Acoustic A40 amp. As it sits, I have had to call in my order, wait for shipping, received a broken product, sat on the phone to be told that I had to ship the product back for a refund which still hasn't happened. I was contacted via Twitter by a "Gearhead" that said they would look into the situation. That was last week. All the while, my money is tied up and I have no amp, let alone the one I really wanted, with the features that I NEEDED in the first place. Maybe Santa will bring me an Acoustic A40 amp for Christmas. It's about as likely to happen as anything else.
