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.

FEATURES
  • 60W RMS
  • 2 channels, each with 2 inputs (1/4" unbalanced and balanced XLR)

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.

      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.

              Really brings out the full sound of acoustic guitars. After plugging into amps made for electric guitars or bass guitars this was a breath of fresh air.
              And you can't beat Musician's Friend's sale prices. I was considering the AG30 until I found this on sale here, I paid less and got more amp!

                Best Uses

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

                  I bought this amp from MF; have owned about 2-months. I'm not a working musician, but still have opinions! I bought this amp as a potential replacement for an old Dean Markley KAC-60. This Acoustic AG-60 amp, being newer and with 2 coax speakers vs. 1 bass & 1 tweeter, has a fuller sound and more sparkle. The 4 inputs through 2 channels is very nice since I have two guitars and my wife has a mandolin and violin to plug in. NOW, you'd think that since the AG-60 has more FX that it would shine over the Markley in this regard. HOWEVER, although the Markley only has two FX, chorus and reverb, it allows them to be controlled independently of one another, with each of its two inputs controlled separately, AND they are both foot-switchable. Be warned: this AG-60 has NO FOOTSWITCH CAPABILITY. If you can live with that, and you can find a couple of their pre-programmed FX that you like (as I did), then this AG-60 is definitely a good choice.

                    UPDATE:
                    Had a chance to test this against a couple of other amps in the same price range and wattage.
                    Have decided to keep this and return the others.
                    Although I still feel it is slightly under powered it makes my Rainsong jumbo, Gretch resonator, and my vocals sound great.

                    Actually thinking of buying a second one, so I can run the lineout from the first one into one of the inputs of the second one. Point one at the audience and one back at me for monitoring. Or both at the audience, now you got loud.

                    Final thoughts:
                    Its a bit heavy and a tad underpowered but it really sounds great.
