Transistor amplifier for electro-acoustic guitar and vocals.
2 channels:
1 channel combo (XLR jack), microphone for voice or 2nd guitar. (Gain independent)
1 channel guitar (jack-independent gain)

DI output (XLR), line (jack) and headphones.
Lets be taken directly to a sound system (very convenient and very satisfactory, although a recovery of HP, has a "stamp" more interesting (you can also make a stereo)

50 W at EAR (EAR watt weighs less, takes less space and is more efficient than Watt "classic"). I know it's been a little laundry, but it is clear that the RMO whiter.

HP dual-cone 8 ": super performance

A parametric EQ (bass / med / high) very effective.

A sober and balanced digital reverb.

Master volume



UTILIZATION

Simplissimo!

I have not read the manual, it is useless to me.

Is connected, you light, eq flat, and it sounds!



SOUNDS

Perfect for me!

Acoustic sound or light, excellent.

Well suited for violin, banjos, mandolins, etc. ... and of course the voice
With good effect, it is really an illusion, but it will obviously not the "vintage" of a tube overdrive.

This is not an amp for rock. I does so only 9 ...

My guitars
Electroacoustic guitars, Simon & Patrick and Seagull "cedar"
Fender Start

My effects and pedals (wah-wah Morley, Boss Chorus, RC 50)

This amp allows me to have a sound very clear and deep.
Ideal for managing the nuances.

Like that's all EAR

OVERALL OPINION

I've had one week

I borrowed a AER Compact 60 for several months, as well as slightly more powerful, I never pushed the volume to more than half (diffusion very effective), the alpha is more than enough with 50W.
The features are almost the same.

I like the portability, lightness, versatility (vocals guitar), robustness, excellent design of this amp suitable to nomadism, the oxen, to bars like the big stage, the undeniable knowledge of the brand, fact that you can screw onto a (vrai!) mic stand to have at ear level (volume saving, proximity), sound quality (color of sound, efficient dissemination compared to the power displayed : you are almost in the Hi-Fi), The sobriety that makes using the scope of my grandmother ... etc. ...

As has been said for the Compact 60, it is quite directive.
For me it's an advantage (better performance), and then there are the connectors for transplants on a sound system if necessary
EAR brand may seem a bit expensive for someone who has never tasted. But considering the quality of products, it's not really clear.
In addition, The Alpha range is more affordable with the same quality as the "Compact 60", especially as the Watts race is very secondary to what kind of amps.
A very good investment.

If I do it again this election?

In your opinion? ;-)
