Acoustic Amplification has introduced its upcoming Model A20 Acoustic Instrument Amplifier.

Acoustic Amplification A20

More than just a guitar amp, the Acoustic A20 is a complete performance solution for today’s versatile acoustic-electric musician. Its full-range 8-inch studio-quality coaxial speaker, ported cabinet design, and 20 Watts of clean, pristine power effortlessly fill the room with rich, crystalline sound. Plug in a microphone and any acoustic instrument with a pickup and you’re ready to go.

Expressly designed to bring out the nuance and natural detail of acoustic instruments and vocals, the A20 delivers the advanced tone shaping control that has made Acoustic Amps “The Pro’s Tone” for almost half a century. Lightweight and portable, the A20 is packed with features, including two combo XLR-1/4″ inputs with independent level controls, 3-band EQ, digital reverb and chorus, effects loop, and Acoustic’s acclaimed Vari-Control feedback eliminator.

With its unique wedge-shaped design, the A20 makes a great, full-featured stage amp. With the power and performance of a small PA system, it’s the ideal rig for coffee houses and other acoustic performances, solo keyboard gigs, home recording, and small to mid-sized karaoke shows. The Acoustic A20′s 1/8-inch Aux input and headphone output also make it a great fit for players looking for a small, portable practice amp. A full-featured direct output with pre-post EQ switch and level control connects the A20 to any PA system for larger venues.

Whether it’s a PA for a mid-sized coffee house gig or a stage setup for a club gig, the A20 has the sound and the features today’s musicians are asking for.”

Scuffham Amps has released version 2.4 of S-Gear, a collection of guitar amps, speaker cabinets and effects for Windows and Mac.

Scuffham Amps S-GEAR
S-Gear 2.4 includes the new Custom ’57 amp, an updated ProConvolver offering new cabinet models, updated impulse loader & several other improvements.

The Custom ’57 is the new amp in S-GEAR and is inspired by the favourite Tweed amps from the late ’50s. The control line-up is very simple and dialling in great vintage tones is effortless and fun.

In the speaker emulation section we’ve re-worked the ProConvolver interface with a new layout to improve usability and workflow. The first ‘in-house’ cabinet models include the popular EVM-12L and G12-65 speakers, as well as a Tweed Deluxe cabinet loaded with Celestion and Weber Alnico speakers making a great match for the Custom ’57.

A complete rework of the impulse response import process allows you to drag and drop multiple impulses to S-GEAR. It is now super-easy to import an entire set of Redwirez impulses.

S-Gear for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for purchase for $99 USD (excluding sales tax/VAT).
