OVERVIEW

Amazing acoustic tone, and stunning looks to match.

For the discerning player in search of an eye-catching piece of acoustic architecture, the Fender Acoustic SFX offers state-of-the-art technology for a lush sonic experience unlike any other. The ultimate solution for acoustic players, the lightweight design and portability suit anyone looking for a grab-and-go rig for small venues,
offering a pleasing sound image to people located all throughout the room.

This limited edition Acoustic SFX has a new look, a new finish and a whole new attitude. The luxurious hand-rubbed walnut finish and black trim highlight the elegant shape and features of this truly versatile, toneful acoustic amplifier.

Acoustic SFX has two universal channels designed for use with guitars or microphones, each with its own 1/4-in.-XLR combo jack and spectacular studio-quality effects. The multidimensional, stunning Stereo Field Expansion technology (SFX) goes beyond stereo for room-filling tonal imagery that envelops the listener in a rich acoustic experience.

The amp imparts exciting, dynamic life to the onboard hall reverb, echo, delay and Vibratone effects—literally moving them around the listening area for amazingly deep tone. The integrated handle doubles as convenient cradle for mobile playback devices—perfect for adding accompaniment to your performance via the Aux In jack. Other performance-friendly features include feedback-reducing phase switches, line output, fitted cover and a footswitch jack for the optional two-button effect bypass footswitch.

      Comments about Fender Acoustic SFX 160W Acoustic Guitar Amplifier with Hand-Rubbed Walnut Finish:

      I have 2 acoustic amps since 1987 , one is SWR strawberry and other is Carvin AG 100D ..My guitars are Tak. 341Sc , P5DC , Gibson progressive songwriter , These amps sound good on some preamps but not all . I tried all three guitars with the Fender SFX , adjust little EQ , reverb , and all 3 guitars sounded beautiful . I even check it out on microphone , I plugged my Senn. e945 in and the voice came out so good , I was shocked because this small amp can do that much beyond my imagination !
      This amp was made in Mexico not in the USA , I don't how long it will last even it is expensive !!!

      Comments about Fender Acoustic SFX 160W Acoustic Guitar Amplifier with Hand-Rubbed Walnut Finish:

      I am 52 years old and am a gear junkie for acoustic guitars, amplifiers and recording stuff. I have the fortune of trying out dozens of high and middle end guitar amps in the past 30 years. I have tried out some duds for sure and there are plenty of fine differences. I have owned AERs, Shertlers, Fishman, Ultrasound, Genz Benz, Bose and many others already forgotten.

      The best sound reproduction from an acoustic guitar and vocals has been with a pendulum preamp out to powered speakers however there is extra hassle with that type of set up. This new amp from Fender is a definite improvement from their recent past models both in size and SOME sound, in my opinion. The reverb is pretty darn good but a little difficult to use at low levels which I prefer. The short delay is excellent in my opinion. The chorus and vibratone seem overdone and are hard to use at low levels. I don't know why. The guitar sounds slightly warm through this amp but not overly so. I tried it with several pickups including Shadow, Taylor expression, LR Baggs and Fishman. They all sounded good yet volume control is very different on the various pick ups. I did not try with passive pick ups since I no longer own any. The guitar sound that this amp produces is one of the best Ive heard. It is less sterile then AER, not as overly processed and compressed like Bose, and not as warm as the old Ultrasounds. The amp gets pretty loud however feedback issues would keep you a little hesitant to push past 60% when using both guitar and vocals. The speaker configuration also seems unable to keep with 70% or more from both channels....especially when vocals are used in tandem with guitar.

      The vocals are the best I have heard through any amp. Straight dynamic microphone with a little reverb and short delay is VERY nice. Go figure. Is this a guitar amp or vocal amp? It does well at both. It would work very well as a two channel mixer and monitor then out to powered speakers for more volume. I would recommend!

      Fender has come out with a really great amplifier for acoustic guitar in the SFX model ! I used to have one of the older ones and it weighed a ton !! This new amp only weighs 25 pounds and sounds incredible! I have not tried it with electric guitar yet but I bet for clean jazzy sounds it will be tough to beat ! It's like having surround sound for your Guitar! Awesome product ! A+ On your report card Fender!
