The amp combo is fantastic, as it packs a punch for the money. I used the Crate 60w equivalent for years, and although rugged, the Crate didn't have nearly to tonal nuances that this combo has. Also, with the flexibility of the direct-out XLR line, it's perfect for any level of gig. I also found it to be a bonus to have the MP3 player input for both a quarter-inch or eighth-inch cable. Trying to do that with an electric guitar amplifier, (even if it says "Aux in", doesn't come close to the overall warmth, close-cousin to that of a Bose Wave Radio.

Great, compact power-house for the experienced weekend warrior like me.

Tried to use this for small acoustic / vocal gigs for the past 2 yrs, used several guitars trying to get a full sound. No dice. An 8" spkr would much improve it. This amp is very clean, and for the price should have a multiFX instead of the chorus, which is not very musical, a waste of the extra knob.

      Comments about Fishman Loudbox Mini PRO-LBX-500 60W 1x6.5 Acoustic Combo Amp:

      Our son plays classical guitar, and needed an amp for playing in louder venues. We were hesitant about which amp to choose, but when the mic maker told us he used this amp for his demos, we looked no further. Paired with the mic we purchased, this amp delivers a warm, clear sound with the right amount of volume for his needs.

          This is a wonderful amp. If you need a powerful clean sound, then you have found the right amp. I have two of these. I use them in stereo with my acoustic and mostly with my modeling pedal and electric guitars straight out of the pedal and into the amps. The sound is great. They are very loud and are built extremely well. I run vocals thru them too and they are clean. Even at high volumes. I am very happy with them. I am a musician of 40+ years so I've had lots of set-ups. I love this one.

            Comments about Fishman Loudbox Mini PRO-LBX-500 60W 1x6.5 Acoustic Combo Amp:

            I WAS LOOKING FOR A GOOD ACOUSTIC AMP LIGHT ENOUGH TO CARRY. TRIED TO BUY A FENDER ACOUSTASONIC BUT EVERYONE WAS OUT. AFTER A FEW WEEKS I STARTED ASKING MUSIC SHOP EXPERTS WHAT COULD I BUY INSTEAD. WHEN I SAID THAT I MOSTLY WANTED IT TO PLAY SINGLE NOTE HARP FOR COUNTRY MUSIC (NEEDED SOMETHING CLEAN AND CLEAR) THEY ALL SAID "FISHMAN LOUDBOX". WORKED OUT GREAT. PRODUCES A CLEAR BRIGHT SOUND THAT WILL CUT THROUGH THE CLUTTER OF THE BAND OR JAM. I USUALLY PLAY THROUGH A SURE 48 AND RUN BOTH THE GUITAR AND HARP THROUGH AN ACOUSTIC PLAY LIVE Y CONECTED TO THE MIC SIDE OF THE AMP. IF YOU PLAY MOSTLY SINGLE NOTE HARP, GET ONE OF THESE.

            20lbs, fits in luggage, reasonable power, good sounding, scuffs easily. More about the last two points...This amp is not overly complicated or flashy but sounds excellent on acoustic steel/nylon string guitar and vocals. You get a high quality sound both from the amp speaker and the DI in the back of the amp (into a PA or larger amplification). The reverb, eqs and chorus are pleasing and musical. The knobs are solid, rotate smoothly and are easy to operate. The two stereo summed to mono inputs in back of the amp also sound good/clear/high quality both through the amp speaker and DI. The back and sides of the amp housing scuff easier than other guitar amps I've owned (for ex. Roland Cube); so if you care about that you might want the Loudbox Mini cover. Overall, thank you Fishman for this class act!

                This little amp is so awesome, and it is only 12 lbs! When most every venue mics your amp, why break your back lugging a huge stack around. This little amp has a great sound when I am plugging in my Tacoma acoustic and my SM58 mic for a little solo coffee house performance, or for a show with my band, Boxcar; where I plug into the house sound and use the little amp as my monitor. At home I rock out with my American Telecaster and it sounds great. It even gets quite loud too. The sound is great, though at really high volumes there is a little background noise. The reverb sounds pretty good, it is no Fender spring reverb tank, but it works fine. If I need that gorgeous fat reverb sound I change to my Fender Princeton Amp. Other than that, the amp is so light, versatile, and great sounding that I don't miss my old half-stacks and huge amps of my younger (more metal) days. This amp is definitely an improvement and I will highly recommend it to any one looking for an amp, and I will buy another one myself just to have around. Great amp.
