Product Description

This upgraded version of Fender's Acoustasonic Junior, the world's most popular acoustic amp, is a portable, well built, easy-to-use combo amp designed for natural electric-acoustic guitar sounds as well as vocals. New features include handcrafted onboard digital effects and an XLR line output (with level control & ground lift). The Acoustasonic Junior's two 40-watt power sections drive a pair of 8 in. low-frequency drivers and a tweeter. Separate Instrument and phantom-powered XLR Mic channels each contain individual EQ and Phase switches for feedback reduction, and FX. Fender's String Dynamics(TM) control tames harsh treble notes on the instrument channel, and Feedback Notch control removes most feedback problems. Fender tilt-back legs aim the sound where it's needed.

With more than a year spent on research and development, the new Acoustasonic Jr DSP now feature handcrafted Digital Signal Processing effects that combine the clarity of Fender's Acoustasonic Series with the versatility on board digital features to offer musicians a complete palette of acoustic possibilities. The Acoustasonic Junior's new DSP effects include Reverb, Delay, Chorus, Vibratone, and more, all of which are specially designed and optimized for acoustic performers.

"Fender really got it right on this amp. Whether you're in a band or a solo player looking to combine your guitar and voice mike"
Sound: I have owned this amp for a year. I intended to match it up with my Yamaha acoustic 6-string once I got around to installing a pick-up on it. My Fender Strat (ltd. edition light Ash with Seymour-Duncan APS p/u's) sounds so amazing I never got around to altering my Yamaha. I've played guitar for 47 years...50's-60's, Blues, jazz, and country rock. Mostly softer stuff such as ballads but also lots of fast tempo flat and fingerpicking. The note clarity is the best I've found as everything else I've used turns to "mud" when picking tempo gets into high gear. Tried finger-picking with acoustic through voice mike and had the same results. May mic my acoustic just for grins & giggles but either way, this amp is solid. If you like to play instrumentals sans vocals, this amp is especially versatile. Feature: Fender should include the two-button pedal with the amp. Nobody around here carries them and seem hesitant to order them out. Maybe they know something I don't. Ease of Use: If this amp is hard for you to figure out, maybe you should stick with an acoustic. It's as easy as it gets. Quality: Like a '57 Chevy in Havana. It'll be cooking long after I'm toast. Value: It's priced about right. Including the pedal switch would have been a good move on Fender's part. Manufacturer Support: Not on this amp. Had a G-Dac that was a p.o.s. from the get-go. Nobody at the factory could even tell me how to navigate the menu. The Acoustasonic is one of the best thought out amps I've ever seen. After my experience with the G-Dac, I was a bit leery about another Fender. Glad I gave them another shot at the brass ring. After a year, I don't have one single regret. The Wow Factor: The "Acoustasonic" badge looks lop-sided, even though it's not. Drives an anal-retentive over the edge, except the great sound makes it more than bearable. I especially like the lean-back legs. Overall: I'm 61 years young. I've owned more guitars and amps then most kids have zits. This amp ain't going nowhere. Ditto on the Strat. This guitar combination is so smooth, mellow, and lusty it could melt the knickers off a frigid Eskimo or howl so hard it would make the Pope kick the stain glass windows out of the Vatican.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Great accoustic amp for the money!"
Sound: I have tried this amp with my Ovation 12-String, mandolin, and two different resonator guitars. I was able to quickly find the sound I wanted without alot of fussing around. This amp produces a very natural warm sound. The highs are clean, but not brash. Feature: I plugged a second instrument into the mic channel and though that might not be the intended use, it works very well and sounded great. Quality: This amp seems to be pretty rugged like the old Fender amps were made. Value: I did alot of research before purchasing this amp and although there were cheaper amps in this category, this seemed to be the best quality for the money. Manufacturer Support: I want to purchase the optional 2-button FX footswitch, but can't seem to find one. It isn't even listed (as far as I can tell) on the Fender web site. I contacted Fender (e-mail), and they said someone would get back to me in two-weeks or so...not exactly responsive. So far, this is the only complaint I have. Overall: If someone stole this amp, I would have to get another. This is the best my accoustic intruments have ever sounded in a live environment.
Style of Music: Rock, folk, county, experimental
