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:

      I use this amp on stage as a vocal preamp and as my monitor and it's excellent. Very simple setup to run the mic into this amp and then DI it into the PA. The separate volume and gain allows me to adjust the monitor volume without affecting the out-front mix. It's also light as can be and easy to transport.

      I haven't used it for acoustic guitar but for just playing around the house an electric actually sounds pretty good thru it, too. Overall just a great amp that i can't say enough good things about.

        Play my Martin D28 with an L.R. Baggs M80 pickup through this little amp and it sounds stunning! This combo makes the Martin sound absolutely incredible with a warm, accurate acoustic sound that everybody comments on! Couldn't be happier...

          I've owned several PA's and this is the lightest, easiest to setup portable sound system with stellar effects for both vocals and guitar. The Artist has plenty of power for crowd of 40-50. I've even used it for outdoor gigs and the sound travels well enough.
          I did a video comparison of the Fishman Artist and the Bose Compact which can be viewed here http://youtu.be/AACnh_UlgQg

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

          I am a vocalist and I needed something for small gigs, and most immediately, for a recurring jam performance (public gig) in a fairly long and boomy room, where there would be a variety of singers. I read all the reviews of both this and the Artist model, and was tempted to go with the Artist because it had a little more functionality and the larger speaker. I bought the Mini thinking I'd try it, but expecting that I might very well trade up to the Artist. I was pleasantly surprised to find how powerful the Mini is, and how good the sound reproduction is. Very warm, yet clear. And I love how lightweight it is. I think I'm keeping it! I did buy the protective cover, which ought to have been included, IMO.

            I have used these amps on small gigs by themselves and on bigger direct out to a house PA.They are a home run !!! If they could only tilt back like a wedge monitor Fishman would have created a grand slam!!

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

              I am a solo acoustic performer. A few weeks ago, I got a nightly gig singing during cocktail hour at a Los Angeles hotel. Management wanted me to set up in their outdoor pool area where there is lots of activity: children swimming, people having conversations, etc. They did not have a P.A. system, and wanted me to get something small and portable.

              This handy little amp does the trick. And more.

              First of all, it is VERY powerful. I set the master volume knob at just below half, and it's plenty loud. I once set it a little higher than that, and the manager asked me to turn it down. "I think they can hear you in Arizona," he joked.

              Second, the reverb and chorus effects are top notch. They sound beautiful. I admit I don't have the most spectacular voice in the world, but that reverb (along with a Shure 58 microphone) makes me wonder if perhaps I should enter myself into "America's Got Talent." And the chorus makes my Martin guitar sound positively dreamy. Overall, the amp has a warm, rich sound that I haven't been able to get out of P.A. systems three times the size of the Loudbox Mini.

              Third, it is incredibly lightweight and easy to use. The hotel clerks store it on their counter in the office. Hand it to me through the check-in window when I arrive. Super light, super easy to use.

              I can't recommend the Loudbox Mini enough. Just get it. You'll love it!!

              I use this amp with my Martin GPCPA1 Plus Guitar with Fishman F1 Aura + pickup. It is a wonderful combination that allows me to perform in church, small hall or at home. The reverb effects are wonderful and make me sound even better than acoustic alone.
