The singer-songwriter's one-stop gig solution!

Although there are many acoustic amplifiers on the market today, few of them can compete with the rich, natural tone of the compact Roland AC-60 Acoustic Chorus Combo Amp. This innovative stereo amp uses sophisticated digital signal processing to deliver a crisp sound with lush stereo/multiband chorus--including a new wide mode--plus delay/reverb and impressive Auto Anti-Feedback control. And with its 2-channel Mic/Line design and standmountable configuration, the AC-60 is clearly heads above the competition.

Features

  • Compact stereo acoustic amplifier with pure, natural tone and excellent projection
  • 2-channel design: Guitar input plus mic/line input with phantom power
  • Stereo 30W/dual 6-1/2" speakers loud enough for club gigs and small PAs
  • Onboard DSP delivers lush stereo/multiband chorus, newly developed wide chorus and delay/reverb with footswitch control
  • Built-in Auto Anti-Feedback controls allow for maximum volume without feedback
  • Convenient mute switch for silent tuning on stage
  • Stereo line out for PA and recording; subwoofer output

It's fantastic sounding and wonderfully compact. Order today, you'll love it.

You really cant go wrong with the AC-60

By Pro From Dover

from Dover, NJ

Comments about Roland AC-60 Acoustic Chorus Combo Amp:

My 2-cents to add to the well-deserved reviews. First and most important, the sound is outstanding. The AC-60 makes all my guitars sound like they should, only louder the whole point. Its got a flexible mix of inputs and controls, including TRUE phantom power available for the XLR mic. Add realistic and practical digital effects, all footswitch controllable. And the Outputs! If youre playing a large room, no problem! Stereo & Mono Wet outs to house PA, as well as a Dry true DI. Stand-mount capability also a plus. The anti-feedback has two modes: automatic and manual. You can also use it to deemphasize a problematic frequency. I have a guitar that resonates on the D-string and the next 2 harmonics. Able to dial that out with the feedback control. Separate switchable FX controls on a per-channel basis would have been nice, but not an issue unless you use Ch-2 for vocals and are heavy-handed with the FX. All this in a compact and lightweight package with its own carrying case.

Small but Giant sound

By Mark-PrHDG

from Pataskala, Ohio

Comments about Roland AC-60 Acoustic Chorus Combo Amp:

I tried out several acoustic amps, this was hands down the best quality for the money. THe portability (weight and carry case) is excellent. Very easy to set up, plug in and start playing. I've used it with a Parkwood 560 and Yari Alvarez w/Dean Markley sound hole pick up. The sound reproduction was fantastic in both guitars. As stated in other reveiws, plenty of effects and the mic stand ability is a nice touch.

Pastor Scott

By Scott-fLFu9

from Springfiel, MA

Comments about Roland AC-60 Acoustic Chorus Combo Amp:

I had Behringer's top of the line acoustic amp (ACX-1800), and traded it in for Roland's AC-60. The difference in sound quality is so huge it's almost silly to even talk about. I have a Fishman Rare Earth soundhole pickup in my Martin D-18, and as soon as I plugged it in I was amazed at how accurately this little amp reproduced the sound of my guitar. Although the AC-60 has plenty of room filling power, to me it's the sound quality that made up my mind. I've been on a long quest to find a portable/affordable amp that actually let's my Martin sound like the fine instrument that it is. The other features are top notch as well, but if your looking for high quality inexpensive reproduction, there's nothing else out there that compares to the AC-60.

Fantastic Acoustic Amp!

By BobJ

from Bloomington, IN

Comments about Roland AC-60 Acoustic Chorus Combo Amp:

I tried several acoustic amps and really wasn't prepared to pay as much as the AC-60 cost, but after testing it there was no turning back! When the salesman plugged my Taylor 410ce into the amp it sounded exactly like the guitar except louder. Then I began playing with the built-in FX and was just blown away. Don't let the small physical size and 6.5" speakers fool you - this little baby packs out some serious volume....yet I've experienced no problems with distortion. At 30 watts per channel (30 + 30) it has the power to fill a pretty decent size room filled with people. The separate microphone channel sounds awesome with my Shure PG58-XLR and with the FX my vocals are better than they've ever sounded. Nice! It's made to set up on a 1.5" speaker stand and has footswitch inputs for turning on/off mute, reverb, chorus, and anti-feedback (another great feature). I have yet to see a bad review of this amp and it's no wonder; Roland really outdid themselves with this fine piece of audio equipment!

Excellent multi purpose amp

By Robert Manning

from Mississippi Delta - Home of the Blues

Comments about Roland AC-60 Acoustic Chorus Combo Amp:

After reading up on this amp, I tried it out. I play many styles in several groups and solo, so I was looking for a multipurpose amp, clean sound, portability, and quality. I got this amp to replace a Behringer ACX1000 which was extremely flexible, but lacked quality, top-notched sound. It also weighed in at 60lbs which was borderline portable. Found it in this amp. I demo'ed it with a Taylor and immediately knew it was a sale.I use this amp for small solo gigs, mainly playing instrumental jazz with a Boss DR-880 drum/bass machine. I plug the 880 into the aux input and run my Variax Acoustic into channel 1 and my ES-135 into channel 2. If needed, I'll put a mike into Ch 2 for announcing and light singing. This amp is extremely versatile and loud enough unless you're just playing too darn loud. And it just weighs about 22lbs!! I have used it in med. sized room with about 75-100 folks and it's plenty. The speaker stand mount comes in handy. Use it. The sound from this amp is a clean reproduction of your acoustic instrument. Reverb/Delay adequate as is the chorus. I like the control layout and the rear panel offers many options such as stereo line out, subwoofer out, several aux-in options and footswitch controls of 4 functions. Wish the footswitches came with the box. The carrying case is a very nice extra. I can walk into the gig with a guitar on one shoulder, my amp on the other, and setup in no time.So far, I have not found anything I don't like, unless it's the top mounted controls being hard to get to when stand mounted. Minor inconvenience.Don't let the size fool you. Don't let the price scare you. This is a great amp.

sorry - this is DEFINITELY more than 1 star =)

By Caleb again

from Berkeley, CA

Comments about Roland AC-60 Acoustic Chorus Combo Amp:

Updated review of the Roland AC-60: I recently used it as a monitor amp/preamp for my Crowdster and Taylor 307-GB at a 300+ conference. This little amp packed a pretty good punch over the band so I could hear myself through it, and definitely cut through the crowd when lined out in XLR's. No matter how loud I cranked it, Some worship leaders at the conference gave some positive comments about the amp. Our morning speaker was really excited about the amp, and he decided to yank the Taylor and plug in his rigged-up Montana travel guitar with nylon strings for an impromptu song. As a result, I'm convinced that the amp can handle heavy usage but still convey subtleties in each guitar that is plugged into it.

fantastic amp for gigs

By Caleb-Evtm2

from Berkeley, CA

Comments about Roland AC-60 Acoustic Chorus Combo Amp:

Amazing little amp - I've used it in coffee shops, small halls, mid-sized church sanctuaries (seating 100-200 ppl), and for recording purposes. I run a Taylor GB-307/Dean Markley ProMag pickup and a Tom Anderson Crowdster through it, and the Roland has not disappointed me in the least.

Great little amp

Comments about Roland AC-60 Acoustic Chorus Combo Amp:

I saw, I wanted, I got. Greatest little amp...quite impressive effects. I play an Alvarez PD100S thru it, and I sub it thru my Laney 120 Bass amp....which is the way to go with this amp. Whether you're in a living room, or a nice size auditorium....or even outdoors...you won't be disappointed with the performance, regardless of what that other guy said....I have a Dean Markley on my PD100S, and like I said, it really sounds great....you won't regret obtaining this unit.

Great Buy - couldn't be happier

By Tom -QqPi1

from Michigan

Comments about Roland AC-60 Acoustic Chorus Combo Amp:

It sounds very good, and puts out some decent volume - don't be fooled by the size. The mic channel sounds very good too, like a PA. Great amp, worth checking out

Classical guitarist, miked

By Kerry O'Brien

from Austin, Texas

Comments about Roland AC-60 Acoustic Chorus Combo Amp:

This review is for someone who wants to amplify a classical guitar with an acoustic amp. I haven't seen one review online like that when I did my research. I've now found my amp - the Roland AC60.I spent some time with a few lower end acoustic amps (Marshall, Fender Acoustasonic 30, Behringer ACX1000, Crate15A) and while I am going to pay a little more for this amp, it's worth it.I will be performing miked with a Shure SM-57 on a John Mills/Asturias cedar-top classical guitar. I am not into CGs with onboard mics. I was looking for the amp that had warm & classy reverb, was quiet, easy to use, had a separate XLR input and was portable. This amp fits the bill great. The fact that it is mountable on a PA stand is a bonus. I love it. The natural-sounding classic Roland reverb, on high, makes me sound exactly like an overproduced classical guitar CD. :) (That's a good thing, but turn the reverb down when it's time for others to listen!) Really, it makes me sound better, as opposed to the other amps I tried, which made me sound worse.I like this amp. Yea Roland!
