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.
