I use this when i go jam on my harmonica. It's great because i don't have to carry around a big heavy monitor just for my harp. I use it with my Vibraphone too. It's great for just practice and jam sessions. Its size is great, too. it doesn't take up much room and since it runs on batteries it makes it that much better. For this price, you should get this.
I bought this as a small portable practice amp for my keyboard. What sound for a speaker its size. I also plugged in my iPod through the aux jack and even that blew me away. Buy one, it's great.
Play anything through it and it sounds great, good to have in the northeast with all these black outs, runs forever on 4 AA's and plays well by candle light.
We bought this amp for traveling light and fast with my Yamaha SLG100S Silent Guitar. It has good features for the $, except that the amp could really use a 3 band EQ or shape filter to give the sound some depth.Pros: Inexpensive, light, and tough. Battery option handy for travel.Cons: Thin & flat sound from midrange-only speakers, low notes distort at surprisingly low volumes.Note that I use what is essentially an acoustic guitar. The harmonics, overtones, and other "sound depth" aspects don't get through the AA5. Electrics guitars might fare better. No...it's not my guitar's fault...the SLG sounds great through a Fender Jazz Chorus 55, Fender Acoustasonic, and Fishman Loudbox. I have an Ultrasound on order that should do even better.Want a smaller but better sounding travel alternative? These days I've been using my PAL (full product name = Tivoli Audio Henry Kloss Portable Audio Laboratory) by running a line with 1/8" male stereo jacks at both ends from the SLG's headphone output to the PAL's auxiliary input. Dial down the bass to offset the PAL's bass-heavy circuit and you have a surprisingly rich acoustic guitar sound.
This amp sounded very nice with a cd player. With a guitar, it just didn't have enough oomph. The tone with my Epi LP was very weak and when turned up, broke up too quickly.
