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.

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'!

Acoustasonic 150 150W 2x8 Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp:great acoustic guitar tone

By Mr. Ed Huey

See all my reviews

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

I have used Fender amps since 1974. The only I traded my 2002 Acoustasonic for a lighter amp.
This is my second Acoustasonic Acoustic Guitar Combo amp. As a solo act I perform Americana specializing in early Blues guitar and harmonica styles. I replaced my original Acoustasonic (60+ lbs. purchased in 2002) because I needed a lighter amp (21 lbs.). Great acoustic guitar tone can be achieved on the Acoustasonic 150 150W 2x8 Acoustic Guitar Combo by using the String Dynamics knob rotated clockwise to eliminate the harsh acoustic guitar tone at high dynamic levels associated with most acoustic amps. Don't dink with the effects first, experiment with the tone first . If all else fails read the directions. I have found the apm to have plenty of power for small/medium venues for guitar and vocals, with copious vesatile effects. I fingerpick a Martin D 28 with an under the saddle pickup and a National RadioTone for slide with a Highlander under the biscuit pickup run through a preamp, sing and play harmonica through the vocal side. I can also play electric through it and have three amp models (Blackface, Tweed, British Band) from which to choose. This amp carries the mail in a package that is easier for me to load in/out. I also have a 60's Fender Deluxe Reverb Blackface and a 60's Alamo Challenger that I use for ensemble electric/harmonica gigs.

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

    Is it price n a good range? This amp with features and technology I would say yes. I have been playing for a long time. Played through a lot of really nice set ups. So after 25 years of beating on guitars and amps. I am very very pleased with this amp. The only reason bigger is better is the simple fact stronger is cleaner. I can play my classical, my jumbo steel string and my screaming electric through this amp at the house or even small club and jam all night. All the extra fxs are nice but a bit of over kill. It is extremely light 30lbs. And very functional. I am a very pleased player. Not sure you can find a better bang for your buck. I played it strong for 2 weeks before I wrote this.

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

      I received this very quickly from MF and all I can say is WOW! The sound is great! I used it on stage a couple days after receiving it and it blew me away at the sound I got out of this thing. Playing with my band, I didn't even have to run my acoustic through the PA for it to project and barely had it turned up. In fact, a friend said I needed to turn it down and it sounded great. The only issue I have is that I have to adjust levels and tone going from acoustic to electric, typical though. Also can sound "tinny" if the levels are not set right. Just need to play with the adjustments...great amp. Buy it...you won't regret it!

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

        I was a bit leary about purchasing this amp. I'm not a pro, I've played mostly acoutic 6 & 12 string guitars. I recently just picked up an Epi DR-500MCE 6 string acoutic-electric w/eSonic2 pre-amp. I played it through a small Peavey amp but couldn't use it to it's full potential by separating the outputs to a 2 chnl amp. I demo'd 2 chnl amps with it and WoW! the guitar just came alive! I settled on the Acoustasonic 150 because of it's versatility (being able to play electric through it) and the wonderful sound it has just on "Pure Amp". I don't know how that one gentleman could say he had "intermod distortion" unless he got a bad one. Intermod distortion is something that happens in RF (radio frequency) communications. RF is not audible to the human ear. If you set it on "Pure Amp" it sounds very nice. Pure acoustic guitar. Then you can add in the effects if you want. It's also light! An added plus. Try one out, I think you'll be impressed if you play acoustic guitar.

        I would recommend this amplifier.
        Great stand alone amplifer for both acoustic and electric. I bought one from Long & Mcquade in Canada and it sounds great. I have tried a stratocaster, dean evo with humbucking pickups and both sound great. On the acoustic side i have a dean performer se with a fishman pickup and it also sounds great. I would recommend this amplifier.
        Well constructed closed back amplifier. Very light to carry around.
        recommended.

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

          This amp replaced an aging Acoustasonic Jr. that had been with me for years and needed to be retired. Can't say enough about the versatility of this amp. With all the guitar and vocal effects, balanced XLR direct out, tilt-back legs, dual channels - it's just a sweet little amp for acoustic work. I will use this amp primarily in worship settings and have used it twice a week since acquiring it and have practiced with it extensively. I have run three different guitars into it (Taylor T5, Martin D16GTE and Taylor 812ce) and all sound great. It's not the easiest thing in the world to get a fat acoustic tone out of the T5, but the Acoustasonic 150 does great. Fender has done a great job packing the amp with features, quality effects with lots of variations, super-light weight (the best part in my mind), all at a great price point with solid build quality. I also have a California Blonde that I virtually never take to a gig, or worship, just because it's such a chore to lug it around. This amp does NOT have that kind of horsepower, but it's got plenty for 95% of my use requirements. Good power, good projection, great effects and EQ, warmth, XLR DI out... I did the "Looking for a Coupon call to MFriend's Call Center and one of the Gearheads gave me a killer deal, so that made the amp ever better in my mind. I'm a real happy player! 5 stars.

              Another reviewer had trouble with the vocalist being used with the amp. If you go direct from mic and guitar to the amp, the hissing goes away. At least it did with mie. To minimize, douse the vocalist effects, and fiddle with the line in function of the vocalist. It too has its effects. Still have interference, and am still experimenting.

                I'm 53 years old. I grew up in a time when distortion was present in an amplifier whether you wanted it or not. As the years passed by and electronics evolved distortion became a thing of the past unless it was intentional. The worst sounding distortion is called intermodulation distortion (IMD), look it up on Wikipedia. Simply put if a signal contains two different frequencies, i.e. two strings at the same time, a very unpleasant set of tones not in the family of the overtones of the original two frequencies is produced. The result sounds terrible. This amplifier suffers from a significant amount of IMD at all volumes. It would appear that the designers of this amp are hoping no one knows what IMD is anymore or can recognize it when they hear it. That is a bad assumption when their customers are musicians. I'm forced to bring it back because my ears have never been able to tolerate IMD even before I knew what it was called.

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

                Buy it. I tested most of the others: ZT lunchbox, Fishman, Vox AGA, hMarshall acoustic, Peavey: this is the one you want. Fishman has louder and sharper boxes, but it does not have the ability to make a guitar with subpar electronics sound amazing. Acoustasonic does.
                Fender knew exactly where to stop when making an acoustic amp with a little bit of rock and roll on the side. They didn't go out there and create "100 modes designed by different artists," etc. They gave us three electric voices, and that's that: all three sound beautiful with the electric guitar and then you return to the amp's initial purpose: acoustic.

                On the acoustic side, the amp really shines. It has made my Martin OM, whose passive electronics are quite subpar and when it's plugged the electronics really detract from its character, sound superb. While other acoustic amps will not allow you to fiddle with the coloration like this, Fender recognizes that folks may wish for their smaller acoustic to sound bigger, for their "tinny" OM to sound bassier and more refined, or otherwise. Dreadnought, parlor, and jumbo mode accomplish this. String dynamics refines these. This amp is positively complete when it comes to features, and Fender must be applauded for keeping it mostly acoustic, with a side of Fender tweed, Fender blackface, and Marshally 80s Brit (should've been 60s Vox for acoustic players, but oh we'll). Feature-packed.
                Fender quality. 5 years of coverage, though I never expect this thing to have trouble.
                this amp may seem like a lot, but considering its features, versatility, weight, and the fact that it leaves all the other acoustic amps in the dust (feature-wise, not volume), this is a clearly outstanding value. Carrying one box instead of two: there's just no price tag that you can place on that.

                I wanted to use this as a stage monitor in a live band situation. I opened the box, played it for about 20 minutes and knew right away, that even though this amp is rated at 150 watts, it would never hold up. This amp weighs only around 23 lbs. It just sounds really tinny. And I wasn't really impressed with the onboard effects either. Spend a little more and get the SWR California Blonde II Acoustic. This amp sounds fantastic and really punches through the mix.

                Using either of three voicings of Jumbo, Dreadnought or Parlor, I can adjust my guitar to any style sound I want. Also, using the FX settings, I can enhance these various voicings. So many combinations that its often hard to select just one. I like being able to use the FX and voicings to taylor any song. You will not be disappointed in this amp.

                  I don't own one of these, but I played a gig with a guitarist who had one.

                  This amp is just plain amazing! We were playing outdoors at a street dance, running only vocals through the PA. I was playing bass through two 15s, one guitarist had a 150 watt 2x12 and one had a 100 watt 1x12. The other guy had one of these. It looked, honestly, like he was going to be sonically invisible for the gig.

                  We did a couple of songs with him playing an acoustic through it, and it sounded fabulous! It kept up with all of us. Then he switched to a Strat. I thought "This is not going to be good.", but the Acoustisonic on the British setting sounded like like a Marshall Bluesbreaker was sitting back there!

                  I was impressed! On break, I had him show me the amp and the different settings. I'm here to tell you, if you are wondering if this amp can cut a gig, it really can!

                  this is an amp I been wanting and got. This amp is what it is plus more. Naturally it is an acoustic amp but I like the fact that u can use 4 electric regular and jazz guitars and a p.a. as well. it is good 4 house parties to backyard barbecues and wedding halls to out door events. If need be the line out has a level to boost your volume when tied or patched in a p.a. if you want versatility a non back breaker portability then this is the amp 4 you

                      This acoustasonic 150 is one fine amp. I had the 30 and was wondering if this one would have as good a tone and it does but louder. Both my Gretsch and my acoustic sound great with this amp. The built in effects are really good.

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

                      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'!

                        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 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.
