Late last year, Fender released a great new acoustic amp line with features designed for the working/traveling musician. We had a chance to review the Fender Acoustic GO, which combines the high-tech features of Fender’s modern amps in a portable package. This 100-watt amp has a single 8” speaker. Other features include Bluetooth pairing with a mobile device, a built-in kickstand so you can angle your amp at the gig, and Universal voltage, which allows for use worldwide. The 2-channel amp—with its independent EQs and effects for each channel—will allow you to customize the sound you like for each channel, whether it’s guitar and vocals or any other configuration you need for your practicing, recording, or performance. The built-in 90-second looper with multiple play, record, undo and stop features make creating loops to perform along with simple, and even easier when using the optional footswitch which is sold separately.
One of the greatest features of this amplifier is the rechargeable lithium-ion battery which allows between five to twelve hours of usage (depending on the volume of the amp during performing). There are two XLR line outputs on the back for plugging directly into a recording device or PA at a show. There is a 1/4” jack for headphones and a 1/4” aux out.
Selling at $499, this incredibly portable acoustic amp will cover all your needs for small club gigs and great-sounding recordings.
