Disappointing Overall
06.03.2016
The sound levels begin to distort at about 6/10, greatly limiting how you'll use it. Also, the front panel (control buttons area) is loose and when you try to pull out the XLR or jack the panel kind of wants to come with it. Likewise when inserting a cable, the face depresses in about 2-3cm.

I do like the ability to control where abouts in terms of frequency where "mid" is, that's what attracted me to this amp. It's a good feature to fine tune the sound.

It's also got this weird thing where when you turn it on, it won't play out sound until it feels an active signal, then it changes mode (light turns from green to red) and only then will it output sound. This was not affected by toggling the active/passive switch on the amp, I have to use my finger on instrument cable to complete the circuit whilst using my other hand to toggle the chorus button several times before it will change modes and play. Now that I think about it, it's actually a pretty awful amp.

To be honest, I'm here looking at what could be my replacement amp.

Good for the money - usable in many ways
KoMa & The Invisible Band, 03.02.2021
The first one came completely destroyed due to very bad transport before arriving to me.
Thomann very quickly replaced it and I thank them for that.
Now, this acoustic amp has nearly everything that you need from such an amp, sounds good and it is really handy for several uses (live, recording, practicing etc). It needs a few seconds-small minute to really "warm-up" and sound properly and some times makes a low electric noise which can mess up a really bright recording attempt. However, all in all, it serves the purpose and is giving what money can buy at this level.

Great acoustic amp, but be careful
Pugulis, 01.03.2020
Let me start by saying this amp sounds great. I don't think I've heard my acoustic guitar sound better. And this thing cranks!

The only drawback for me was the fact that I didn't realize it is NOT compatible with the the power in the United States. I had to buy a power converter. This is easy, when going from the U.S. to Europe. But not the other way around. Literally, all they'd have to do is put a switchable power supply in it, and the problem would be solved.

Very good
Hugo Leite, 26.06.2019
Bought this combo for personal use, at home, with a nice guitar and microphone.
Balances of volume between both inputs are not equal obliging always to set guitar volume a bit lower.
The sound is quite bright and it has enought power to play and sing in pub without noisy people.
Both Chorus and Reverb work nicely, lacking those controls for micro.
The combo is lighter than I expected, meaning it's easy to transport it anywhere.
Finishings are not awsome when you look at them closely but, from far, it has a nice visual impact.
I am playing with it, regularly, for one year and a half and it maintains the original caracterisitcs.
Concearning the price, sound quality and durability I'd say is a very good buy.
