Acoustic 140 Bass Amp Reviews 5

THIS AMP.WAS SOLD TO ME FOR $200 IN 1976,AFTER I BEFRIENDED AN AMERICAN BASSIST,WHO WAS AMAZED OF THE WAY I ABUSED MY 1962 HOFNER VIOLIN BASS.THAT AMP CAN SPEW OUT WICKED FEEDBACK, AND OVER BLOWN NOTES,PERFECT FOR AVANT GARDE EXPRESSIONS.I USE AN ELECTROVOICE 15" AND 2 X 12s LA ACOUSTIC speakers.very durable amp.I LOVE ACOUSTICs CLASSIC PUMCH and VINTAGE TONE. IT STILL IS THE AMP FOR ME!

IT IS EASY TO SET AND MIX AND IT CAN ENDURE ROAD ABUSE.I CAN EASILY GET AN OVERDRIVEN CRANKED UP MOTOR CYCLE SOUND,WITH OUT RELYING ON EFFECTS .

I THINK THE ORIGINAL COMPANY CLOSED SO IM NOT SURE IF I CAN GET THE USUAL CONSUMER SERVICE ETC.

ITS STRONGLY BUILT AND HASNT CONKED OUT ON ME YET.I PLAN TO USE IT FOR AS LONG AS I CAN.AND ITS VINTAGE DINOSAUR SOLID STATE LOOK TRANSPORTS ME ALWAYS TO WOODSTOCK AND EARLY FUSION ERA. I LOVE ITS FEEL.

THAT ACOUSTIC BASS AMP DELIVERS ALL THE COLORS I NEED TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT BASS. I LOVE JACK BRUCE,TIM BOGERT,DAVE HOLLAND AND ANTHONY BRAXTON!
