OVERVIEW

Faithfully amplifies your guitar's sound in smaller venues.

The AG60 acoustic guitar amp is capable of handling up to four inputs, making it perfect for performing singer-songwriters, duos, or groups looking for an easy and great-sounding way to amplify multiple instruments and voices without having to cart around multiple pieces of gear.

The AG60 is designed to maximize projection, with its angled-up wedge shape. For warm, full-frequency sound, the cabinet features 2 - 8" studio monitor-style speakers for soft mid and low-frequency response and a coaxial tweeter for ultra-clear, sparkling high end. Channels 1 & 2 each feature two combination inputs which both accept a 1/4'" unbalanced or XLR balanced input, so you can plug in a variety of instrument/microphone combinations. Input level controls accommodate a variety of level needs, and peak indicators warn you when your signal is getting too hot. Three-band EQs with sweepable midrange on each channel make it easy to get a solid instrument tone on one and clear vocal sound on the other.

Also included on each channel is a selectable effects unit with 16 possible effects, including reverbs, delays, and choruses. Additionally, the rear panel has an effects loop for using external effects units with or without the built-in choices. A master input gives you greater control over your tone and output when used in conjunction with the input gain knobs.

For quiet playing, there's an 1/8" stereo headphone jack, and for pre-recorded accompaniment, there's an 1/8" stereo aux input. Finally, rear-panel balanced or unbalanced line outs with independent level control afford you more control when you send your signal to a live sound PA or recording console. The AG60 is a full-featured amp, with plenty of power to handle any venue, and a wide array of tone-shaping options that will give your instrument and voice the exact care they deserve.

Get it you'll love it
I'm basically putting the whole review in the features section. Absolutely great sounding, incredibly versatile amp. I've owned several acoustic amps, electric amps, all kinds of amps includiing the old Behringer acoustic amp- the ACX1000. What a nice looking piece of junk ! I won't even try to describe the problems I had with it. Then I went to a PA great sound of course but a real pain to lug around and setup and frankly overkill for the kind of gigs I do. I got this amp today plugged in a Yamaha A/E, a strat I built myself. a mic and a CD player. Everything sounded GREAT! I don't say that very often about audio gear because as I said I've owned a lot of it some good and more than I want to admit I was disappointed or frustrated with. My strat sounded almost as good as when plugged into my tube amp, not kidding. I was shocked. The CD sound was amazing, I didn't expect it to be that good. Instantly put a smile on my face. Feedback(not from the CD) was very easy to dial out and I was sitting right next to the amp! Plenty of volume and a really rich full tone. My acoustic has a body and a chime to it that I never heard before. Again put a big smile on my face. They say this thing has something called "Fast Tone" technology and I now believe it. I cant wait for my friend to come by plug in his banjo and guitar and mic. I think we'll make money with this amp. I used a Zoom G2 pedal for the strat and a A2 for the acoustic and the damn thing sounded even better! Something very unusual in my experience. This amp must have very high quality preamps. Some people have commented that it's not loud enough. They must be deaf or whatever insturment they're plugging in has output problems. The minute I plugged a mic in and starting singing my old lady said "You sound great". I frankly hadn't heard that for a while it's usually "Could you turn that down a little". I used a little echo/reverb on the vocals and was impressed by myself. The Behringer amp mic channels for instance sounded like crap with uncontrollable feedback, low output and nothing but digital noise on the effects. I love this amp!!

Unpacking the thing, right away I noticed just how heavy it is for such a small form factor. It does look great.
WHATS BAD:
The individual channel input volumes will easily peak out at less then 1/2 way up.(Not much headroom there.)
I don't know if it is the digital effects or just the amp itself but the whole thing is noisy when it's idling.
The XLR outs to board are noisier yet.
At 60 watts I was expecting much much more volume.
It doesn't have a tweeter so trying to get that "sparkle" is really tough.
The effects loop outputs "both" channels.
WHATS GOOD:
Has 4 inputs.
Slant back cabinet.
WILL I KEEP IT?
Undecided as yet.Have another rehearsal tomorrow. It will be the telling.

        Comments about AG60 60W 2x8 Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

        Between the EQ and the easily dialed effects it's simple to dial in a desired sound. This amp is perfect for amplifying that acoustic sound while maintaining the warmth and richness of your guitar. This is NOT the amp for multiple styles on the fly. That is, you can't switch from a warm rhythm to a screaming lead without an external pedal or effects for there is no foot switch or a/b channel button. It IS the perfect acoustic amp if you have, for example, an Epi Ultra III and want to send your acoustic pickup to a separate amp. When not in use, the AG60 is ultra quiet. Finally, having a separate volume control for your output to a board or house system is great when you want to monitor your playing; you can adjust your monitor level without affecting the house mix. This all is perfect for what it does. It will not replace your Rockin' electric guitar amp,but it will be your best acoustic amp for the money.

          Was very surprised by the sound that came out of the 2 8 inch speakers. You won't be dissappointed. My only issue is a reoccuring noise, I haven't figured out yet if it is a grounding issue.

          Comments about AG60 60W 2x8 Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

          I almost didn't buy this amp because the listed weight is 58 pounds! Unless you are a weight lifter, this is just too heavy to be practical for lugging around to small gigs. But I bought one on sale, and when the UPS man handed it to me and said it was heavy, I knew right away that it was not 58 pounds. It in fact weighs 42 pounds on my scale. This is a portable weight.

          I was impressed with how quiet this amp is. I also love the fact that it will accept multiple XLR connections as well as 1/4" jacks. The sound is warm and clear. I really haven't had a chance to give it a proper workout yet, but I wanted to write this review for anyone sitting on the fence because of the advertised weight. What a serious marketing error! This is a great amp for someone who doesn't want to carry around a PA system for smaller venues. It tilts back to project the sound up and out. It also has a line out. What is missing is phantom power. This would have been a nice feature for use with a condenser mic. This is a discontinued item, so if you find one at a discounted price, you'll be getting a lot for your money.

            Did an in store comparison and this model and brand sounded better to me than other more popular/expensive brands. A heavy cabinet makes a good sound. Very balanced and plenty of controls to dial in your own sound.

                I got this AG60 from Musicians Friend at a killer deal, but even if I'd paid regular price it would still be worth it. It's not a super extrodinary amp, but then you'll pay 5 times more for that, but it get's er done. I'm very pleased. Thank's Musician's Friend.
