Purchased of Harmony Central for $200. I got this amp to use in worshipservice with full band.
I checked out just about all the accoustic amps. From $350 to over $800 for new. A friend told me to check one of these out. Wow! I was surprised to find that it had more versatility than any of the other amps. It has a 12" woofer with a horn mounted in front. Nice sweet high and great warmth. 2 channels with a 5 band eq for each. My guitar goes in channel 1, I sometimes run my monitor mix thru channel 2. For the money this is the best bang for the buck.
AThis is an open back amp. The speaker is right there to be abused by putting stuf in the back. Effects, cords ect...
No chorus....but what does a decent chorus pedal cost? Not near the cost of any of the other amps. I also wish that they still used metal volumn controls instead of plastic. Still can't complain.
This amp is built pretty well. Like I said up above, it is open back. I have had this amp for about a year. No problems yet.
If yor considering an accoustic amp, check one of these out before you buy. I was able to compare this amp with about 5 other major accoustic amps. I don't feel I compromised anything by choosing this amp. These can be had on ebay for arround $200+shipping.
When I first set out to find an acoustic amp, I tried many models from Fender, Roland, Crate, Peavey and others. I was impressed with the acoustic sounds of most models I tried and with so many good acoustic amps out there, I found it difficult to choose one over the other since they all had a certain quality and appeal of their own.
I found this unit at Ezzy's in Van Buran, Maine, and paid $479 + tax.
Needless to say, for the price, acoustic sounds and tone, I ended up getting the Ecoustic 112. I needed an amp that I could use for vocals and acoustic guitar simultaneously and this amp performed great. Other models sounded good as well, but I and others who participated in the experience all agreed that the Ecoustic 112 was THE BEST, so to speak.
First, lets talk about front panel attributes. As previously explained the Ecoustic 112 features 2 channels. The first channel has one 1/4" instrument jack. There is a passive/actice switch to allow for greater dynamic range and a phase reverse switch to help reduce feedback. One volume instrument level knob, 5 band active equalizer, frequency sweepable notch system to help eliminate acoustical instrument feedback, and a reverb knob.
The second channel has one XLR jack for vocals and one 1/4" jack. Peavey calls this channel the Microphone Channel. Both input jacks on this channel can be used simultaneously as well. If you add a second mic for vocals you will need an adapter for the 1/4" jack. This jack can also be used for other sources such as keyboards, drum machines or a tape deck...whatever you want. There is a mic volume level knob to control the overall volume of the Microphone Channel. Also included is the 5 band active equalizer and a reverb knob.
To continue on the list of featured knobs, there is a Master Reverb knob to control the overall Reverb signal and a Master Presence knob to boost extreme high frequencies in the overall tone.
The back panel features a very neat ground switch that can also help minimize audible humming or noise coming from the speaker. Also included is a very nice transformer balanced direct output (low Z balanced XLR jack) that allows you to route the signal to a mixing or recording console. In addition, there is a pre/post EQ switch to select the signals you wish to send to the direct out jack, either the instrument channel or both the Instrument and Microphone channels.
Also on the back panel are the following 1/4" jacks: a preamp out, power amp in, mic effects send and return, instrument effects send and return, and one remote switch jack for a foot switch that you could use to defeat the effects loop on the Instrument Channel only. It could also be used to remotely mute the amp.
This all adds up to one very versatile amp.
NO MASTER VOLUME KNOB!
This acoustic amp looks fantastic. It is portable enough to carry around at 50 lbs.
It is equipped with one very nice 12 inch Blue Marvel speaker.
This is a great sounding acoustic amp. I play a Yamaha APX10 and I simply love the sound of my guitar through this amp. On the vocal channel I use an SM-58 and the sound I get is truly awesome.
This is an amp for those who want clean, warm acoustic tone. The sound is very loud and full.
Acoustic Amp 100W transistor qvec an HP "Blue Marvel" 12 "(which allows better on the bass / midrange compared to his little brother 10" that sounds more sec)
2 independent channels each have Crane's own EQ 5 votes, his control of feedback and its own reverb.
The second channel also has an XLR input as well as the jack of high quality that can connect a microphone and other song or just any source amplifiable
On the rear panel found moultes notement out with an XLR output to go to a console / mixer or another with the possibility of assigning the preamp upstream or downstream of the amplifier.
There are also all inputs / outputs for adding additional speakers, a footswitch and effects
The configuration for playing solo or with a mixture of two guitars or guitar / voice or another is very easy and everyone can independently adjust its output level, the reverb and feedback thus avoiding feedback and other problems in the balance of his
The equalizer is precise and very clean for a proper setting, which is played in folk or nylon
I've never needed the manual, external connections are obvious and well marked on the amp
I own this amp since 2000, I connected a lot of different guitars (such as various electros Art and Lutherie, Martin, Godin, Gibson) and adjustments made to allow a real character of each instrument.
I currently play with a Godin ACS nylon top and made neutral can make it sound perfectly (with a chorus pedal ... it was the sound of Sting "Fragile")
The only small downside is a slight hiss that disappears when you play, and can even remove a Noise Gate.
7 years since I use it, not a failure or any problem
It is very well finished, strong ... but a bit heavy (it is not the sound card and is only better)
I tried a Fender Acoustasonic who had not convinced because too dry because of its HP 10 "
the price / quality ratio is really great interesting for an amplifier Made In USA
SEA is a purchase I do not regret and I do it again with eyes closed (but open ears)
