AER Compact 60

"We sell a ton of the AER Compact 60/2 amps and customers constantly tell us they can't believe the sound that comes from the little monsters. At just 19 lbs., and with the included carry bag, you really can go to gigs with a guitar in one hand and the amp over your shoulder and sound like you've always dream of." - Paul Heumiller

The AER Compact 60 Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp has two channels that make it possible to operate your microphone and acoustic guitar independently of each other. The dynamically controlled power amplifier and the broad-spectrum loudspeaker system guarantee distortion-free reproduction, even at high volumes.

The Compact 60 guitar amp is based on the Acousticube and is a small, powerful and yet simple complete solution for singer songwriters who perform.

This system, with its 8″-twin-cone speaker-system, 60 watts of power and fully developed dynamic control gives you great control over your live sound.

Level control:
You can adjust the High/Low switch and the Gain control to match your pickup systems. The clip indicator shows that the input signal is too high.

Tone controls:
The three and two band tone controls of your Compact 60 are designed to fulfill the special requirements of acoustic instruments and the general demands of other sources. The Color switch in Channel 1 activates a mid-cut treble-boost filter that is particularly appropriate for fingerstyle techniques.

The Compact 60 has four integrated digital effects with pushbutton control. They include a warm hall reverb, bright hall reverb, chorus with reverb, and flanger.

An effects send allows the use of external effects.
