Ce petit ampli est extraordinaire, à haut volume, il est précis et d’une très belle sonorité. Autant pour la guitare que pour l’entrée vocal. Je suis agréablement surpris.

Quality of sound is absolutely the finest compared to other makes in this size range. Plug in an acoustic, classical, or mandolin and the sound of the instrument is faithfully reproduced. Plug in an electric - my Ibanez semi hollow body and playing Clean - the Tweeter brings out so much of the hidden mids and harmonics compared to a electric amp - even my Traynor 40 watt tube did not compare in the Clean. All within limits of course, but it will crank out the sound when turned up. Light, strong and the bonus is you can plug in 2 instruments and a mic. Normal inputs front, and a 1/4" Aux on the back where I plug in the mandolin. Acoustic in front and mic for the singer. You can pipe in backing tracks via the small 1/8" Aux - connect to the Phones output on a computer, etc. Incredible value for performers and works well in a small hall or large room. It just works - flawlessly.

I've been gigging with the same one of these for about 6-8 years, these are as durable as they come and sound great, I have used it with acoustic guitars, electric guitars, electric bass, uke, and mp3 players, they all sound great, and work fabulous as a stage monitor / per-amp to the main board. portable lightweight but beefy little speakers that kick. can do a mid sized room easy.

I've used this amp for about 4-5 years as a solo artist weekly - vocal and guitar, it can do a small mid size room no problem. Its sturdy. I haven't busted anything off of it yet. It sounds great with separate controls for 2 channels and master volume. It's easy to set up, not heavy, compact and easy to carry, I've also used it as a monitor and as a line out into a mixer board. One of the best gear purchases I've ever made, if mine ever got lost I'd buy another without hesitation. I've owned and used others, this is the only one I recommend.

My first acosutic amp and it is amazing, I'm really impressed with the sound and overall quality of this amp. The Aux out is great for patching right into a mixer and going through the mains. Does tend to have feedback sometimes but you just have to tweak the eq.

I use mine for church and small functions. At church I use the D.I. out to the PA and use the amp as a stage monitor. Works very well. Small one man gigs with a guitar and mic. it also works well. You will be hard pressed to find better at this price. There are certainly better amps, even within the Fishman line, but not at this price.

Easy to dial up a good sound and tone,effects are appropriate for Acoustic applications,also on par with Ibanez troubadour t35 amp.nylon and steel strings sound equally good. I would recommend this amp,do purchase a cover if you are hauling it around.

This amp is nothing short of amazing! My Taylor accoustic actually sounds better thru the amp than on its own. Excellent FX. My iPod touch sounds great. It's loud. I would reconmend a feedback suspression system if you have to crank it. Also a stand to aim it better is a good idea.

The Loudbox Mini lives up to it's raved reviews - in fact, exceeds them. Play through it once and you will know why it received the 2011 Player's Choice Gold Award for Acoustic Amplification in Acoustic Guitar Magazine.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 flat rate up to $2,000 of current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years.
  • BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the current new selling price above $2,000.
  • WOODWINDS: 4% of the current new selling price above $2,000.
