I bought this amp for small gigs and home playing. In my opinion it is the best bang for the buck. I tried others that might have sounded better but were more than rwice the money. I play a Gretsch guitar through it and sounds beautiful. Highly recommend this product. I have no buzzing or any other noise from mine.

This review is an update of my review of February 12, 2020. I have upgraded my overall review from three stars to four stars. Pros: Excellent build quality, power-to-weight ratio and features. Cons: Mediocre sound quality, noticeable background hiss, and annoying pop/zap when the amp is turned off. This amp has plenty of power for its size, but the sound quality isn't as good as a Fishman Loudbox Mini. The Acoustasonic 40 amp might be suitable in a performance situation, but I didn't find it suitable for practicing, mainly because of the background hiss, which also came through my headphones. I also have a Fender Frontman 10G guitar amp and a Fender Acoustic Junior amp, and they don't have the issues that the Acoustasonic 40 amp does. But the Acoustasonic 40 has good bang for your buck in a small lightweight package.

Use this for my electric acoustic and occasionally for my electrics for clean tones. I am very impressed with the sound quality and output of this amp. I also use for vocals and it is plenty loud enough for practice. It is deceiving looking at the size of it, but the quality is excellent in my opionion.I tried several others in this price range and this was the best choice for me. and highly recommend it. I don't hear any hiss in mine, but if it is there it is not loud enough to bother me. It does make the loud pop, but as others have said this is normal so I am not concerned.

The previous 2 reviews are bang on. This a simple basic amp, has everything you need and nothing that you dont. Nice natural clear acoustic sound. Plenty loud enough for home use or jammin with friends. Ive yet to have it past half volume....There is a background hiss, that is barely noticable, and that amp does "zap" when turned off. Emailed Fender and they assured me that these 2 things are completely normal for this amp. Good enough for me. Plug in and rock on. Cheers, G :)

I bought this amplifier online without the benefit of trying it first. I bought it for its versatility, as it can accommodate two guitars, a guitar and a mic, or two mics. It has a separate reverb control on each channel, an auxiliary input jack, a headphone jack, and a DI output, and It can double as a mini PA system. But the first time I tried it, I was disappointed. It had an objectionable background hiss even with both volume controls turned off. The volume controls on both channels were intermittent below the 9 o'clock position. The amp made a loud "zap" sound when the power switch was turned off. I also have a Fender 10G guitar amp, and it doesn't have any of these issues. Worst of all, the sound quality of the Acoustasonic 40 is lacklustre compared to an industry standard like the Fishman Loudbox Mini. The cabinet build quality of the Acoustasonic 40 is excellent, but the electronics are below par. Fender, you can do better.

Sometimes less is more, and that's one of the things I like most about this amp. When looking at a lot of acoustic amps you're either faced with an amp designed for one instrument and a vocal mic, or you're stuck with a lot of extra stuff you don't really need (think effects here), or it costs an arm and a leg. This amp has two channels with the same basic controls - volume, bass, mid, treble, and reverb (the only effect that everyone needs) and it costs less than your guitar did. Its easy to dial in a decent sound with decent volume. If you need to be louder it has an XLR out you can send to a PA while you use the amp as a monitor. You can plug two instruments into it or a split stereo signal and you have the same controls for each. All in all a great simple amp for a good price and highly recommended.

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, 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.
  • 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: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
