Fender’s gorgeous new Acoustic SFX (left) and Acoustic Pro (right) amps.
Fender are releasing a beautiful new range of amps for acoustic guitar.
The Acoustic Pro and Acoustic SFX feature a smooth curved design with bent plywood that has been designed specifically to enhance the projection of acoustic tone. The two new amps may look similar but they both have their own niche which they perform incredibly well at for “superior live sound.”
The Acoustic Pro is a 200-watt monster described by Fender as an “audiophile amp.” It features two channels for Guitars and Microphones with 1/4″ XLR jacks and an auxiliary input. The Acoustic Pro also features hall reverb, 12″ neodymium woofer, high performance tweeter with crossover network, feedback-reducing phase switches, balanced line output and effects loop.
The performance and quality from the amp is top notch but the stunning build also comes with an integrated handle and tilt back kickstand.
The Acoustic SFX has been designed for smaller venues but retains the crisp sound and state-of-the-art technology of the Pro. The SFX has a lightweight design for easy portability, perfect for coffee shop and small venue acoustic players.
The SFX isn’t titled without reason and comes with onboards hall reverb, echo, delay, chorus and vibratone effects for a variety of luscious soundscapes from your acoustic guitar. The amp uses Fender’s Stereo Field Expansion technology to create a “multi-dimensional” sound that can move the effects around for a dynamic sound.
Other than a footswitch jack the SFX comes with most of the same features as the Acoustic Pro beyond that. Both models include switchable voltage between 100 to 240 volts and a fitted cover.
Both amps are available now in the US with a UK release next month. You can pick the Acoustic Pro up for $999/£709 and the Acoustic SFX for $899/£589.
