Fender amps up acoustic songwriters
The forthcoming Acoustic Pro and Acoustic SFX guitar amplifiers – with bent plywood construction – from Fender are made for singer-songwriters
Fender has announced new additions to its acoustic amp line this month, with the Acoustic Pro and the Acoustic SFX. According to the press release, the manufacturer expects both amps “will bring out the singer-songwriter in players, while providing two completely different sounds and experiences.” With smooth bent plywood construction, the Pro and SFX’s modern curvature is designed to enhance the outward projection of guitar tone.
The Acoustic Pro is a 200-watt amp has two universal channels designed for guitars or microphones, each with its own quarter-inch/XLR combo jack and hall reverb. This amp also features an integrated handle and tilt-back kickstand, full-sounding 12-inch neodymium woofer, tweeter with crossover network, feedback-reducing phase switches, balanced line output, effects loop and Aux-In jack.
The Acoustic SFX offers lightweight design, portability and room-filling Stereo Field Expansion technology, designed to impart dynamic life to the onboard hall reverb, echo, delay, chorus and Vibratone effects. The integrated handle doubles as a cradle for mobile playback devices, via the Aux-In jack, and other features include feedback-reducing phase switches, line output, two universal channels, and a footswitch jack for the optional two-button effect bypass footswitch.
Both models also include a voltage that is switchable for universal 100 to 240 volt worldwide operation and a fitted cover. The Fender Acoustic Pro and Acoustic SFX amplifiers will both be available online and should be expected in select dealers before the end of September, but prices are yet to be confirmed.
