I was out test driving acoustic guitars on Tuesday and plugged into one of the Fender Acoustic Pro models. Big, heavy, looks like furniture and that it would be hard to keep it from getting gig damage but it sure sounded great.

A cheap amp is a small bass practice amp, and then add a piezo tweeter. I buy them at pawn shops. Small piezo tweeters can be found even at Walmart in the car speaker section. I'll often make a bracket to coaxially mount a small piezo tweeter. A crossover is not needed for a piezo, but adding a resistance (2-20 ohms...a watt or two or more) in series with the piezo will help prevent burnout and will keep amps from possibly going into thermal runaway due to driving a capacitive load (like old Kustom amps did.)

I used to use an ultrasound thirty watt acoustic amp but in the last few years have found that my Bose Compact does a great job with an acoustic guitar. Not very adjustable but always a warm and pleasing tone with my k and k pickups or fishman stuff. I’ve recently gotten good results with my Katana 50 acoustic settings but the Bose is still warmer sounding.<br /> I find the lack of effects on the Bose unit keeps the guitar sound more realistic just louder.

I recently invested in a BOSS Katana 100 Head. It has an acoustic setting. When I plug it into my Sunn 1x15 Stage Monitor - wow! Hard to imagine better acoustic tone, and the Katana offers plenty of fx & tone-shaping options that I've barely even touched. Thumbs up!

I have two, an older Fender Acoustisonic that is underwhelming, big, heavy and not in use much at all, in fact, it's in storage.<br /> <br /> I have a Roland AC-33 smaller acoustic amp that sounds pretty good for what it is, built in standard chorus, and a looper that is a pain.

Guitar > Baggs Paracoustic DI > tiny Behringer board > Yamaha DXR8 powered speaker. The Yamaha speaker is one of the best purchases I have ever made - very small but loud and full-sounding.

K&K pure mini into BBE 282iq Sonic Maximizer into Roland AC 60 with Polk Audio PSW-10 powered sub hooked up to the Roland's sub out jack.<br /> <br /> I've used Fishman Artist and GenzBenz Shenadoah 150-lt. Neither come close to the pure acoustic tones of the Roland. I'll never try another acoustic amp. I don't play out.<br />
