Acoustic Introduces the A15V Amplifier

The combo sports 15 watts (into 8 ohms) of clean power, a 6.5-inch full-range speaker, and a front-ported cabinet.

Thousand Oaks, CA (March 21, 2018) -- Combining best-in-class tone, compact size, and a well-thought-out feature set, Acoustic Amplification's new A15V Acoustic Instrument Amp is an excellent choice for both rehearsal and performance. With 15 watts (into 8 ohms) of clean power, a 6.5-inch full-range speaker, and a front-ported cabinet, it delivers a warm, rich, clear sound with enhanced bass frequencies that will make your acoustic-electric instrument sounds its best, while also flattering your voice or mic'd instrument.

The A15V features an XLR mic input on Channel 1 and a ¼-inch instrument input on Channel 2, each with a dedicated volume knob. The instrument channel includes three-band EQ for shaping your tone, plus a lush analog chorus with adjustable rate. A 1/8-inch aux input accepts prerecorded audio from MP3 players, smartphones, and other media players, enabling accompaniment tracks for rehearsal or performance.

The amplifier's wedge-shaped cabinet directs sound where you need it so you can hear the amp clearly and at lower volumes. A 1/8-inch headphone output disables the speaker for private practice or tuning. The Acoustic A15V looks as good as it sounds, thanks to its classic design, and it's lightweight and compact, so you can easily grab 'n' go.

The Acoustic A15V is available at Guitar Center, Musician's Friend, Music and Arts, and Woodwind & Brasswind.

We’ll look at ways to use drones in a variety of contexts, from ancient to contemporary, blues to metal, traditional to experimental.
