Astounding little amp. A real gem!
markodarko, 11.01.2015
Firstly, just to clarify my "status" as a guitarist, if there is such a thing. I've been playing guitar - acoustic and electric - for over 30 years. Sheezus, I'm old. Anyway... Suffice to say I've played through a gamut of different amps and PA systems over the years and currently own a Marshall AS50D acoustic amplifier (I used to own an AS100D) and a Yamaha Stagepas 500 PA and I bought this little amp for my son to get him gigging.

Well, what can I say. Impressed is not the word. Well, it is, but if you could incorporate impressed and surprised into one word, that would be the word - imprised?

The tone is not really like the AS50D - in some ways it's a better tone, in different ways not. For example, it has a mid on the guitar input which the AS50D does not so you can alter the tone quite a lot there even if you have an EQ on your acoustic. Also, the AS50D just has one reverb setting while this has 2 plus a delay and a chorus. The AS50D wins on the chorus stakes though as it has a dedicated chorus function, however it's handy having a delay - I actually prefer delay over reverb if given the choice of one or the other - although the delay on the amp is not adjustable in any way other than level, it's useful all the same.

Those differences aside, if comparing them side by side I'd say that the Marshall has more of a spectrum to the sound, but the Harley Benton is somehow "clearer", more of a focused sound, especially when finger picking. In isolation they are both excellent and there's not a whole lot between them if you EQ them to sound similar and when in isolation you'd be happy with either.

I've had both the AS50D and the AC Pro 60 on a Thomann amp stand (which is also excellent) cranked up with a guitar and Shure SM58 plugged in and seated within 1.5 metres of the amp and feedback is minimal - in fact it's a lot worst on the Marshall - to the point where they have a "feedback elimination" control, but it's not needed on the Harley Benton at all!

Cranked up they are both clear and distortion free - providing you're careful to turn down the bass at high volume levels of course. I'd be totally happy gigging with this amp with no problems at all, and if my Marshall gave up the ghost I wouldn't hesitate in replacing it with one of these. All you need for a small acoustic pub gig.

Incidentally, I'm pretty sure that this is identical to the Tanglewood T6 amplifier. Certainly looks it, and that's had rave reviews, except this is a third of the price!

Highly recommended. Grab yourself a bargain.

Excellent value for money
marcusavgreen, 07.03.2018
I bought this amp because it was all I could afford at the time. However it sounds excellent. Since then I have bought an AER 60 which is lighter and less noisy but for about 6 times the price. Slight downsides are that it is relatively heavy and (like the AER) has no pole mount facility. I strongly suspect it comes out of the same factory as the Tanglewood T6 which costs about 4 times the price.

Delighted I went with AC pro 60
drdolittle, 15.12.2015
This is exactly what I was looing for! I had been dithering for ages about buying the right acoustic amp for me and had bounced from the expensive fender/roland/laney offerings to the generics at a more manageable price. In the end I took a chance on the Ac Pro 60 and I am so glad. It is light, compact and packed with features that are comparable to many of the big name equivalents - but the sound is its main attractive quality and there is huge scope within the controls to get it exactly where you want it. I bought this amp to do justice to a martin dc-15mE and sweet divine I can't put it down now! Whether I play through an effects set up or just through the amp- I can achieve great sound that I am really happy with. When I pushed "order" the first time I really wondered if I was settling for less- but now I would happily order another of these in the future.
I should point out that a small button was missing from one of the control switches- but thomann dealt with this immediately.
The 4 stars instead of 5 is due to the lack of control over the delay settings- but this might not bother someone else.

Surprise
andrejgr, 14.06.2016
Comparing to Fenders and Ibanez amps at this price, this amp just stands it's own and above.

Amp can not hide, it's role model is AER, but that is quite all right. It has nice sound, sufficient power and looks nice, is easy to handle, two channels are great, plenty of effects to chose from.

Very nice. it even stands it's own comparing to my Roland AC60.
