Comments about SWR California Blonde II Acoustic Instrument Amp:

I have been using the Blonde's for way over ten years now. I am on my fifth unit. Having given a few away to family and friends, My first being # two fifty something. They always perform super and can be depended on for any small to medium, reasonable size gig. My son and I (He also has two of them) have done outside gigs at Harley dealerships with thousands of people and rumbling motorcycles all around. They are great. Crisp, clean and powerful. Gig after gig after gig.
