best acoustic guitar amp
A: I’d say either a Fishman acoustic amp or a Roland acoustic amp
Q: What is the best amp for an acoustic guitar/beginner?
I have a Seagull Acoustic Electric Guitar. Was wondering what would be the best amp to buy, keeping in mind that I just started playing this year and I have less than $450 to spend.
A: Keep going unplugged as long as you can; it’s easiest to learn like that. But when you decide to get an amp, I’d suggest starting out with either an amp designed for acoustic guitars or a low-end tube amp (low-end because tube amps tend to get expensive). Fender amps tend to work rather well for this, and Carvin (available from Carvin.com) sells an acoustic amplifier with I believe two guitar inputs and another channel for a microphone, as well.
Q: what is the best amp system for an electric acoustic guitar under 300?
im looking for a small amp system i can take to college.. what would be the best for under 300 dollars?

Q: What amp is best for an acoustic Taylor 214ce guitar?
I just bought a brand new taylor acoustic-electric, 214ce guitar and I’m looking to buy an amp as well. Do you have any suggestions as to what brand and size I should buy. Ionly ever do small gigs so I don’t need a lot of power. I’ve been playing Acoustic my whole life and this is my firs Acoustic-electric guitar so I need some advice
A: I get on very nicely with my Marshall AS50R which is designed for electro-acoustics. It has 2 channels, one with optional balanced input, with the option to use variable amounts of reverb, chorus and feedback cancellation on each. It has in/out for external effects, line out and D.I out on the back. As the name suggests, it has 50 watts output which seems plenty for small venues.
There is also a very nice Roland (AR60?) that is worth a look. It uses smaller speakers than my Marshall but still gives a full, rich sound.
Q: Need help buying Acoustic Guitar Amp?
Ok folks heres my problem:
I am not at all knowledgeable about Guitar Amps in general, and I have just got a new acoustic guitar (Ibanez A200 ETG). I went to Guitar Center and a staff worker there recommended that I get the Acoustic AG60 Acoustic Amp. Here’s the link: http://www.guitarcenter.com/Acoustic-AG60-60W-2×8-Acoustic-Guitar-Combo-Amp-104839105-i1425485.gc
That runs me $300, which I am fine with but here’s the question: Am I getting the best bang for my buck? I want the best sounding acoustic guitar amp and I have a price range of anything preferably 400 dollars or under.
Here are my requirements for the Amp:
Must be somewhat powerful (I play in a band where there is also a drummer, and I need to be heard)
Must be around or under $400 (Said this before but I cannot spend too much on my first acoustic amp)
Must have instrument input (1/4) and also a Microphone input (XLR) (I sing as well as play guitar)
I need help with this before New Years Eve because I plan to buy it Tuesday, and I have to have some time to practice before my New Years Eve Party Gig.
A: I just ran my martin through the P.A. system via a direct box and fed it through the monitors so I could here it. It worked great, nice full sound. I Never amplified it unless I was playing a gig so I never needed a acoustic guitar amp. Actually you don’t see many acoustic guitar amps being used because most guys prefer to run through the P.A..
Q: What acoustic guitar amp should i buy?
I own an epiphone les paul ultra II. It has two outputs. One electric one acoustic. I was told to achieve the best tone for the acoustic pickup i should get an acoustic amp. i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for under $200
A: i have no clue, but you might get better results if you enter your question in another catagory this is mostly for ipods and mp3 players.
Q: I have a Martin electro acoustic guitar – what is the best amp to use with this for under £500?
dont need mega watts – maybe enough for a small pub or coffee bar
A: The Fishman Loudbox or Soloist would be perfect. So would the L.R. Baggs Core-1 or the Schertler David or Unico. Any of the Genz Benz Shenandoah models would also work great. Good luck.
Q: What would be the best amp settings to make my electric guitar sound acoustic?
Or at least get it as close as possible to the acoustic sound. Any ideas?
My guitar and amp are pretty basic, Epiphone Les Paul Junior II and an Epiphone 12W amp. I’m using them for practicing, though I’d like tuning them to acousitc.
A: i think you would need to boost the lows more because electric guitars sound more tinny with out distortion. also maybe if you have a chorus or reverb setting, play around those to make it sound fuller. It all depends on the amp and guitar though.
Q: What is the best acoustic guitar out there?
Ok so i get any guitar i want (pretty much) but i don’t know which one to pick!!! I want an acoustic guitar and i mostly play rock and alternative songs and i do some finger picking also. Any suggestions? Maybe an acoustic/electric ’cause i do have an amp but i almost never use it. Thanks. And leave a link to a website, if u want.
A: Generally speaking, Martins have the best studio, recorded sound, but Gibsons have a better live performance sound.
I’ve heard many acoustics in live performance over the years and the single best sounding acoustic I ever heard was the Gibson J-45 in a live band setting, however…if you’re in a recording studio, it’s hard to beat the sound of a Martin.
To me, Gibsons are easier to play…Martins are a bit stiffer, better suited for bluegrass Doc Watson type playing, whereas Gibsons have a mellower more rhythm friendly sound.
Ovations are probably the easiest to play and are the closest acoustic to approximating the neck of an electric guitar…plus they have a great plugged in sound.
As others have said, there are many great acoustics out there today…Guild and Taylor and Alvarez Yari to name just 3 more companies.
Whatever your decision…and this is very important…make sure the guitar you buy has a “SOLID TOP.” A solid top will ensure the longevity of your guitar and the tone will improve with age as will the trade in value.
A good name brand solid top guitar will probably be worth far more than you paid for it in 40 years.
As others have said…try different acoustics and find one that seems to speak to you. There’s something magical in choosing an acoustic, almost as if the guitar does the choosing, and not you. Do not discount this “magical” feeling if it comes over you.
Personally, If I could buy any acoustic right now, I would buy a Gibson J-45, but that’s personal preference. The rosewood acoustic/electric version is about $2300.
Best of luck and keep pickin’ till those fingers bleed.
Q: What acoustic guitar amp should I get for gigs?
What wattage will I need? Whats the best brand? And any other info would be appreciated. This is my first amp but Im well able to play and the gigs will be in a pub/medium venue size place.
A: I much prefer Fender’s Acoustisonic II, costing around $800. It has a good acoustic amplification, coupled with chorus, reverberation, echo, and delay.
The only negative attribute of this amp is its limited use of quality bass tone.
Q: What is the best guitar amplifier I can get for about $100?
What is the best guitar amp on the market for 100 dollars, give or take a little. I have an inane acoustic electric guitar if it makes any difference.
A: As a small practice amp or to use as a pre-amp, there are so many good ones out there. But as a stand alone or practice amp for an inane acoustic-electric, that makes it a liitle harder to pick a good one.
I had a Marshall MG15CD that I was very pleased with and lost…somewhere…and would like to get another. It was a good all-around little amp, even for my acoustic-electric.
Q: Do I need a specific kind of amp for my acoustic-electric guitar?
I’m about to buy an acoustic-electric guitar and I need to know if I need to buy an acoustic guitar amp or if an electric guitar amp would work. Also, what is the best bang for your buck in acoustic guitars/amps??? Thanks guys!
I’ve been playing for about 3 years.. I taught myself
A: yeh any amps fine, i jus got 1 4 christmas and i use my electric guitar amp. sounds cool how long you bin playin .
Q: Will an acoustic electric guitar sound like an electric guitar if it is plugged into an electric amp?
It is pretty simple, will an acoustic- electric guitar sound like an electric guitar if it is plugged into an electric amp rather than an acoustic amp? also, what strings do i use for acoustic-electrics. I will pick a best answer.
A: Well the Acoustic-Electric guitar only sounds acoustic due to the pick up and hollow body. The amp doesn’t have much to do with it besides distortion, which can be turn off in most amps. You can make an acoustic electric sound like and electric guitar or an acoustic with and electric amp.
Q: Best Acoustic Guitar For Me?
What’s an amazing sounding acoustic guitar for a person who plays a variety of music. I tend to learn classic rock like Red Hot Chili Peppers, but i like learning newer rock songs too. Im not all that into Country.
& are acoustic electrics good? I have a spider III amp will acoustic electrics sound good?
What’s a good acoustic electric? Thanks in advance.
A: a amp that produces an acoustic sound is shit compared to a natural acoustic sound.
just go to store and try the guitars
Q: Semi acoustic with electric guitar amp;electric sound?
Alright. Ive heard some people say that if you plug a semi(electric) acoustic guitar into an electric guitar amp, and use a distortion effect or what not, the acoustic will sound close to an electric, and other people have said the opposite.
So…Would it be like the ‘best of both worlds’ if I got a semi acoustic?
THanks in advance guys
A: Hi Blah
If you use the acoustic electric on an amp, it will sound acoustic and not like a true electric guitar. If you put electric guitar strings on an acoustic, then yes but you would lose the beauty of the acoustic sound.
If you use a distortion unit. Yes, the sould is close to an electric. I totally agree but, not if you are playing clean.
