Another year, another dazzling parade of pedals, guitars, amps, modelers, and accessories that made our noggins spin.


AER Compact 60/3 TE

The 60-watt Compact 60/3 TE is the third iteration of a fixture in AER’s acoustic-guitar amp lineup, and it’s fingerstyle wizard Tommy Emmanuel’s signature model. At 14 pounds, the tiny 2-channel 60/3 feels lightweight, yet rugged. The tone controls and four preset digital effects offer plenty of sonic flexibility, and the 8" speaker sounds punchy and organic. Portability, ease of operation, and beautiful transparent tone—they’re all here.
