AER Compact 60/3

The AER Compact 60 is indeed compact. At approximately 1 cubic foot and right about 15 lbs, this amp defines portable tone. It's a two channel amp with 60 watts of headroom, but it's a solid 60 watts: Enough to cover a small room easily—and possibly even larger—without giving up at higher volumes. In fact, while most folks here in the shop are won over immediately by the tone of the amp, it's the Compact 60's ability to crank it up that makes their jaws drop. This is my main amp, and after many hours onstage with it, I've come to the conclusion that it may very well be the perfect acoustic amp. It features onboard digital effects (footswitchable), plus the standard tuner send, headphone jack, and line and DI outs. The Compact 60 ships with a padded AER amp cover/gigbag, and that gigbag is almost as cool as the amp—when walking into a gig or a Sunday worship set, I have my guitar in one hand, and the amp slung over my shoulder. The farther away I've had to park, the happier I am that the amp is only about 15 lbs and that I don't have to make a second trip back to the car to get more gear.

So good, I bought another one!

I already own an AER Compact 60/3 that I bought from Shoreline. It's powerful, portable, and makes my D-28 sound like a choir of angels. Too bad it can't make my singing voice better, but it's not the amp's fault! The remarkable thing about the Compact 60 is the dispersion. I have it about 8" off the ground, and I'm amazed at how well I was able to hear my bandmate's guitar through a crowd of about 60 people.

I bought the second one to allow me to play in stereo with a stereo chorus. I even used it with a Mackie mixer, and the Compact 60/3 works great as a powered speaker.

Oddly, (and not a fault of Shoreline) my second Compact 60/3 came with a carry bag that was noticeably less padded than the first one.

But I bought the amp for the sound, not the bag. I couldn't be happier with my purchase!
