I bought the Loar LH-309 & LH-319 arch-tops with P-90 pickups. My old amp was the Peavey EFX-112 100-watt acoustic amp. My Peavey amp sounded good with my flat-top acoustic guitar with a piezoelectric pickup. However, my arch-tops with P-90's sounded like a banjo on steroids. I then got myself a V-Tone Acoustic Amp Modeler, with very little change. Then I tried the ZOOM A-2.1 Acoustic Effects Pedal, & I became frustrated. Fast forward through a hundred more youtube videos, I sensed that I might need to try a tube amp, but a quality tube amp is expensive. I saw this amp advertised on my facebook wall. When I read one of the reviews about this amp wanting to sound like a tube amp, I decided to try it. Wow! What rich tone & distortion & Loud!! My girls sound so good with the Acoustic Lead Guitar Series G120 DSP 120W Guitar Combo Amp. Thanks For A Great Deal Musician's Friend!!!

Has a great clean sound, the overdrive channel sounds great with my strat, but horrible with my Les Paul. Get the Behringer Vintage Tube VT-999 for your Les Paul. Great practice amp, and I'd use it to play out. Sounds good enough on my home recordings. Get your own chorus/delay and phase shifter though, and just use the reverb on the effects.

Comments about Acoustic Lead Guitar Series G120 DSP 120W Guitar Combo Amp:

Volume control is way too sensitive,it's all or nothing with level. Also at random there is a very loud popping sound when playing. Other peoples' reviews noted a popping sound when powering on and off. I have this issue too but can eliminate it by turning down the effects level pot.Otherwise amp has decent sound and power. Got mine for under two hundred clams so I will live with the quirks. Sorry I cant recommend this to a friend since it does have these issues.

Comments about Acoustic Lead Guitar Series G120 DSP 120W Guitar Combo Amp:

This amp is THE hidden gem of the solid state stuff on the market right now. It's ideal for the player who prefers an analog setup to digital modeling, and who likes to use pedals and outboard gear for tones. It does basically two things really well right out of the box: a crystal clear clean tone similar to a Roland JC-120, and a tight high-gain metal tone reminiscent of Pantera (it nails the Dimebag tone even easier than the Randalls on the market now). If those aren't what you're looking for you can combine it with any quality OD or distortion pedal and generate whatever tone you dig without issue. The clean tone is the perfect foundation for that. The high and low sensitivity inputs and parametric mid control allows for a tonal flexibility that many more expensive amps lack. The two channels are footswitchable and it has an effects loop. It is extremely loud...turning the volume up above one is deafening, and it will definitely keep up with your band. The built-in effects are pretty decent...basic reverbs, delays, and chorus...and designed to serve as subtle, always-on effects in the background. The only real issue it has is its a bit noisy on the distorted channel but you can put a noise gate in the FX loop to control this. Absolute great buy and a solid piece of kit for any working musician in need of loud, reliable gear.

    Comments about Acoustic Lead Guitar Series G120 DSP 120W Guitar Combo Amp:

    Saw the Black Friday price of this and couldn't pass it up. Have had a 4x12 cab in the past and was excellent quality. This was really no different except during the unboxing I found 2- of the washers floating around in the box that should have been under the screws. Pulled out the 2 screws missing the washers and reinstalled-No biggie!! Plugged it in and tried some settings in the manual then tweaked to my liking. Sounds great! Tone reminded me of my Mesa Boogie. And it does have tube like chirp sounds at times too. This amp can sound 80s Metal to Country clean and pretty much anything in between. In a portable package of 42 lbs. And it is deafening LOUD! But also has a Headphone input for late night practice. The effects are kind of weak but are VERY useable!! I find the #11 to my liking. Then again I am a tone chaser and don't use heavy amounts of effects anyway. The Gain channel has minor white noise and the Clean channel is clear as a bell. I really LOVE the speakers these have as was the 4x12 I used to have. They just sound GREAT!! I missed that. For the price of the 4X12 cab I bought this instead, And GLAD I did. It's worth every penny!!

      Comments about Acoustic Lead Guitar Series G120 DSP 120W Guitar Combo Amp:

      This is a great sounding amp for the price. I have owned several expensive tube amps that have died onstage at some point. Solid state has come a long way the sweepable mid control allows you to dial it in just right. I like the delays all of the effects are usable. I also use my pedalboard. I'm pretty impressed with it.

          I was unable to listen and hear how the amp sounded as it was difficult getting my guitar cord into the input jack and when I finally got the cord into the amp the amp did not work.. Was very disappointed.

              Comments about Acoustic Lead Guitar Series G120 DSP 120W Guitar Combo Amp:

              The sounds for this amp are far better than any amp I have owned. The only thing I did not like is the fact you can't change the tempo in which the delay comes though as. That to me is important. But the sound is still amazing regardless. If you like delay, just buy a pedal, but in combo with the amp, is amazing! So I will be purchasing a delay pedal soon. Just wish I could change the tempo, only complaint. Otherwise, the amp is well made, and sounds fantastic!

                Comments about Acoustic Lead Guitar Series G120 DSP 120W Guitar Combo Amp:

                I have owned this amp for over 2 years. The comments about the popping sound when turning off are on the dirty channel only. I have a 2 button foot switch that turns on/off the effects and selects the channel. The amp does not come with the switch and does not have one available. I bought a Hosa FSC-385 switch which works fine. If you select the clean channel before turning the amp off there is no popping. The same is true for the white noise. The dirty channel has the noise as a distortion function. Clean channel is fairly noise free. Not that it is a Crown but for a guitar amp acceptable signal to noise on the clean channel. I think the volume disparity is due to not using an audio tapered potentiometer. For the price this amp is hard to beat.
