What a great practice amp! The only thing is you really need to use Fender's Fuse software to get the best tones out of this amp. Once you have set up the presets and effects to your liking it's awesome. Great electric amp models, excellent acoustic tones and the vocal channel sounds great as well. Being 7 watts and tiny it's not going to replace your tube amp but it's definitely loud enough for home use, backyard and park jamming, etc. It even has an ASIO interface so you can record straight from the amp into your laptop. I did have issues with Fender's ASIO interface but the unit works and plays perfectly with the free ASIO4ALL driver. You also need to get into the advanced amp settings in Fuse to increase the USB recording levels. What a steal for the price, thanks again, Fender!

Really useless for a full bodied guitar. Fender could have forgot the bells and whistles and added an E.Q. Plus a speaker that can handle more than only mids. I owned an Amp Can by Fender and hands down was 10 times better.

    Comments about Fender Passport Mini 7W 1x8 Battery Powered Acoustic Guitar Combo with Effects:

    This is a great little setup. I use this for small get togethers. The sound is great. I use this with my acoustic-electric guitar and mic. One reason I like this so well is because it has reverb. A lot of small P. A.'s don't have reverb. With all the effects I can create a lot of great sounds with my guitar.For the singer, songwriter, guitarist , and small time performer, just getting started, I highly recommend it.

        The Passport mini is surprisingly powerful. It hooks up easily and is loud enough for general use. I connect it with another amp for stereo effect. It has a nice range of effects, and can be used as a recording interface. I like it, it is light and easy to carry. Good job Fender!

          Did a little research and really liked the features and reviews on this item. When it arrived, it still went well beyond my expectations. It's a terrific little portable device great for setting up a one-man or small performance anywhere at anytime. Having a microphone input is a big plus. The guitar effects and built-in tuner put it over the top. Very slick little amp. Fender did their homework and came up with a winner here.

                  I was hired to perform at an outdoor festival as a soloist. There would be no electricity where I was to set up and I knew that no one would be able to hear me unless I was right in their face. So I searched for something that was battery operated; found this Passport and read some reviews. Bought it. In my house I was able to plug into AC and test it and get the settings I thought would be good. There are lots of settings for guitar and reverb & tone for vocal. At the festival I put in 6 batteries and It sounded the same as when plugged into AC at home. I am amazed at the volume and quality of this Passport. I am glad I bought it. Great product !!

                  I wanted a battery powered amp but I wasn't sure how often I would use it so I didn't want to spend much. This fills the bill perfectly.

                    If you are looking for a baterry powered amp for a low price this is the best thing you can buy. It's very portable and you will be very impressed with it's sound quality. It's very good for busking and it's loud enough (not in a very noise city) for playing on the streets, in a small pub or to be used as a monitor (not in a big stage!). Fender passport mini is very versatile, as you can have lots of different cool sounds of this amp. I would reccomend this to every musician. For this price i don't think that you can get anithyng better.

                    Battery power makes this super-portable. Was able to amplify my Ovation guitar and vocal mic plenty loud enough for 30+ audience to hear clearly in outdoor setting. Drawback of small speaker is lack of low end, had to max EQ settings to get acceptably warm sound.
