OVERVIEW

Light, loud, toneful, and flexible!

The new Fender Acoustasonic 150 acoustic guitar combo amp is perfect for the acoustic guitarist who needs a light, loud, versatile, and flexible amp loaded with tonal innovations and useful features.

The Acoustasonic 150 combo packs full acoustic resonance and crystal clarity into a lightweight (only 23 lb.) amp with a new ultra-efficient 150-watt (2x75) stereo power amp, dual 8" foam-surround low-frequency neodymium drivers, and high-frequency tweeter. Its new Voicing control lets any guitar simulate the tonality of parlor, dreadnought, and jumbo acoustics. Or, Voicing can be turned off for pure amp output response. For acoustic players who double on electric guitar, the Voicing control also has Blackface, tweed, and British amp settings, which makes a second amp just for electric guitar unnecessary.

Other features include instrument and microphone channels with independent EQ and effects controls; new feedback elimination control with on/off switch for each channel; patented String Dynamics control that tames harsh treble notes; effects including reverb, delay, chorus, Vibratone, and more; XLR line out with level control and ground lift; stereo effects loop; USB connector for digital recording output (and possible future firmware updates); strong five-ply hardwood construction; and optional two-button effects-select footswitch.

FEATURES
  • 150W
  • 2 - 8" foam-surround low-frequency neodymium drivers
  • Two channels
  • 1/4" instrument and mic inputs
  • Instrument channel controls: Volume, Treble, Mid, Bass, Voicing Select, String Dynamics, FX Select, FX Level

I have been looking for a dual function amp like this for some time without success. I have also been looking for a quallity amp that does not break my back carrying it up a flight of stairs. I had actually given up until I saw an intial product demo of the Fender Acoustasonic 150. At first, I thought what I heard was too good to be true. A review in Acoustic Guitar magazine convinced me to try it and I'm glad I did. The massive number of features, the ability to play both acoustic and electric through it and the fact that I can also run a mic through it for single gigs made me a believer. A great buy for the money.
The first thing that attracted me to it was the fact that I can play both acousting and electric guitars through the same amp. I find a lot of occasions when I need this versatillity and have been hauling two amps around, especially for classic rock gigs where both types of instruments have traditionally been used. It's light weight (a plus as I get older), the feedback control is a blessing, and I like the fact that the tone controls allow both plus and minus modeling. My favorite is the voicing control. This little knob lets me reproduce the exact sound my guitar. I don't have to settle for just being close.
I am particularly impressed by the quality of the acoustic reproduction. I have played both a Martin 6-string and 12-string through a variety of acoustic amps and they have been OK, but not great. The first time I plugged my 6-string into the Acoustasonic 150, the sound quality was exactly like what was coming from the guitar. Older Acounstasonics are fine, but this is a 100% improvement. Additionally, the ability to also play my Telecaster or E-347 through it when using both for gigs saves me a trip with a second amp. I had watched the Fender product demo and one from Acoustic Guitar magazine, but reall didn't think it could be as good as they said until I tried it myself. I love it.
It's not cheap, but nothing worth using is. Given the number of features, the light weight, and quality of the sound it produces, its worth every cent.

I was excited to get one of the new fender acoustasonic amps last week. I've been in the market for an acoustic amp that doubles as a portable PA for quite a while and the latest offerings from Fender looked promising. I decided on the Fender mainly because with its many features it seemed to be the best bang for your buck acoustic amp avaiable. I like versatility and this one seemed to have it all with two channels, modeling for acoustic and electric guitars, a good selection of FX and an FX loop. So after watching some of the video clips on youtube and reading the mostly favorable online reviews I decided to give it a shot. Upon unboxing I noticed some slight cosmetic flaws (a small dent and a couple of light scuffs on the tolex) but nothing major. I quite liked the vintage look of the amp and the tilt back legs are the same kind they use on the Twin. When I turned the amp on I noticed a slight but persistent hiss coming from the speakers. I tried using different cables and tried it out in different rooms of the house thinking I might be getting interference from electrical appliances but the hissing persisted. Over the next couple of days I tried out all the different voicings and FX thinking I might get used to the hiss but once I plugged in my strat and set it to the Blackface voicing the hissing problem just got that much worse. I thought that it might be the guitar or the pickups contributing to the noise but it makes the same sound no matter what you run into the amp. One would think that the "tweed" or "british" voicings would have a worse hiss since they are the higher gain voicings. This problem effectively kills one of the main selling points of this amp; for me at least. As a solo, mainly acoustic, performer I thought it might be nice to add some electric guitar tones to my set but there is no way that I can have that much noise coming out of my amp in the small, intimate settings that I play. That coupled with the fact that the other two electric guitar voicings have no way to control the amp's gain other than with the volume control on your guitar which forces you to increase the volume of the amp which just makes the hissing noise louder. On the flip side the acoustic sounds produced by this amp are quite good in my opinion. I was able to dial in a nice acoustic tone with my Yamaha A3m as well as with my Ibanez 12-string. The all laminate Ibanez benefitted more from the acoustasonic's acoustic voicings than did the all solid-wood Yamaha with its own internal mic modeling but I ended up using the acoustasonic's dreadnaught voicing with the Yamaha as well running two signals from my Vocalist pedal, one into the instrumant channel and the other into the mic channel with my vocals, and adding just a tad of mic modeling from the guitar for some air and added harmonics. The string dynamics feature came in handy as well taming some of the mild brittleness from the Yamaha's mic models. The reverb was quite good I thought but the rest of the on-board FX weren't all that great in my opinion. My vocals sounded clear and present but I found it hard to get much volume out of the mic channel without getting a lot of feedback. I tried using the feedback fighting feature but it seemed to negatively affect the tone of my vocals so I left it alone and played it at low volume. The XLR out worked well. It sent a nice clear signal straight to my PA. Never tried the USB recording out but I think that that would be the best bet for recording with this amp unless you like to have a lot of hissing in your recordings. The overall volume was unimpressive for a 150 watt amp but I dared not turn it up very because the louder the amp gets the louder the hissing gets. So I guess if you can get past the hissing issue you might have a pretty good amp or maybe if you play in a band you won't mind it so much. But if you're a solo performer like me you might want to look at other amps in this price range or maybe just a tad higher. I suppose there is a chance that I just got a bad one (it happens) so, since Musician's Friend's excellent customer service dept. has agreed to exchange the amp I got for a new one, I guess I'll give the acoustasinic 150 one more shot since I liked the amp's overall tone. If the replacement amp I get is of better quality than the first one I recieved I'll write a follow-up review. Here's hoping the best. Happy strummin'!

      Comments about Fender Acoustasonic 150 150W 2x8 Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

      This amp looks great and the guitar channel is nice - on the acoustic side, the option to put a bit more body with the jumbo/dreadnought options are cool since I play a Taylor Big Baby a lot. On the electric side, the tweed, blackface, and British options sounded great with my Fender Strat. I bought it with the intent to have an option to play acoustic and electric without switching amps. However, the mic channel gave me trouble from the start. Namely, a lot of feedback. With nothing plugged in on the mic side, it was scratching like a hot mic was being dragged across carpet. Dialing down the mic volume solved it, until I plugged a mic in and the feedback started again. I tried to adjust every mic setting, with no luck. I turned the mic off, the feedback continued. I unplugged the mic cable, the feedback continued. The only way to get rid of it is to turn down the mic volume completely. Even playing over the feedback, I was not super impressed with the mic tone - it felt flat no matter what i did. I am comparing that to the mic channel on my Fishman Loudbox mini - a much cheaper amp, but plenty more depth. Really too bad, I was hoping to make this my go to amp. I'm sending it back.

      Comments about Fender Acoustasonic 150 150W 2x8 Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

      The amp itself is nice however the Mic will feed back if not carefull. The guitar with an acoustic
      does not work out to be what is claimed. It is flat sounding and not as nice as older Fender
      acoustic amps. It puts out a good volume but tends to Rumble a feed back when turned up.
      That rumble is very eritating to hear when your perfroming. This could be due to a closed
      Cabinet with out a port in it to relaease the Bass noise.
      We bought two for our Studio recording and to Loop into our Pa. system. That works fine
      but they just don't sound very real with an acoustic guitar. Im going to keep on working with it
      and see if i can tweek it better but its not at all what i expected in this price range. I suppose
      if you don't need much and are doing a coffee House gig it will work , but try it out before you
      purchase to make sure there are no issues. Our acoustic guitars sounded better in the older Fender
      Tweed Acoustic amps. I wish i had kept those amps. These reasons are why i only give it a #2

          Comments about Fender Acoustasonic 150 150W 2x8 Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:

          If you play clean musically, and you play and sing in smaller venues, and you want simplicity, this Fender amp delivers. I sing, play harmonica, and perform with an incredible Epiphone flamed maple blond Elitist Casino. My style is old school 50-60s folk, rock, blues
          I play at coffee houses, community events, parties, local concerts, clubs and outside.
          I want a simple set up that can handle my set up.
          The 150 delivers beautifully.
          Powerful, good sound dispersion, looks great, very simple priced reasonable.
          Having the electric settings is the trick. I set at tweed with some delay for casino and get beautiful tone.
          I set mic with proper amount of reverb for voice and harmonica, and the compliments and good vibes start.
          When in larger venues, I can team up with my larger PA, but the 150 will cover 95% of my gigs. For non powered small jamming gigs I use a Roland street cube.
          The 150 is not for hard rockin', it is an acoustic or smooth electric player/singer
          Light weight and looks good too. Tilt back legs very cool.
          Downside? A bit boomy low end need to roll bass back. No built in tuner like Roland.
          My overall take is that I found exactly what I was looking for in the Fender Acoustasonic 150.
          I got an extra Ben Franklin off by buying Open Box, even better.

          This amp sounds great with the Tweed preset with some delay with a Fender Telecaster and is the reason I bought it. There is some annoying ground noise on the Tweed, British and most other settings. Have not tried it with my Les Paul yet.

            This is a great amp and delivers the acoustic transparency that I wanted, perfectly loud and clear. But, and I mean but, this is my second try. The first one delivered was weak in power and worse would turn itself off after 5 minutes! I would flip the switch off and on and get 3 more minutes, do it again and get a minute, and it would have to rest for a while. No good! I sent it back which was no problem and they sent a second one which is perfect, I love it. Get it for all its advertised to do acoustically, but work it out when you get it home and make sure its not a lemon.

              I love this amp. After searching over a period of time, I could not find an amp with more features, sound, or overall appeal than this Acoustasonic 150 from Fender. It is quite, powerful, and loaded with useful features that are both easy to understand and functional. It's light enough to be easily portable and perfect for small gigs where space is a minimum, yet powerful enough to work in other venues as well. I have been a Fender fan for years for their workhorse reliability factor and sound. Hats off to Fender this time; they got it right. However, I did have an issue with the receipt of my first amp though, (previously opened, and did not work), but this matter was quickly resolved by the great staff of Musician's Friend. They in turn, earned a new, loyal, and devoted customer that could not be happier with their customer service. Thanks guys; you rock!

                I love my Acoustasonic 150. It is everything I was looking for to help lighten my load when playing small shows. The great sound quality for both vocals and instrument was a surprise, and the power a bonus. I know this may not be important to some, but I just love the way it looks. I like the break from the Fender basic black and silver. The brown just looks warmer for the type music I play. I also like the reliability of solid state versus tubes. This is a great amp and yes, I would recommend it to a friend, or anyone else for that matter. And let me add that I also love the tilt back feature. Once again, Fender got it right. .
