AER Alpha 40W 1×8 Acoustic Guitar Combo Amp – Black


Out of stock


The Alpha is a professional, compact and powerful amplifier system. Especially developed for the enhancement of acoustic instruments, it is also suitable for electrical instruments. With one channel but two independant input stages (line and microphone/line) the Alpha offers you various options in signal processing. 40 Watts plus the 8″-twin-cone speaker-system of the Alpha provide you with a well-balanced tone at all sound pressure levels. All AER-systems are subtly dynamically controlled, which ensures absolute reliability in full load operation despite strikingly small sizes and little weight.

Hand-built in Germany, AER amps are widely considered to be the hallmark of acoustic amplification. Since 1992, the company has used high-quality components, sophisticated circuit technology, and precision craftsmanship to convert their designs into first class sonic solutions for acoustic, electric and bass instruments.

We are primarily sellers of amplifier-systems developed for the use with acoustic instruments. In this regard, numerous technical obstacles needed to be mastered in order to ensure that the resulting sound is light, mellow and fresh, as well as making sure it reaches the very last member of the audience to bring a smile to their face. To do this, selected components, specially made loudspeakers, extremely efficient power amplifiers, well-proportioned power supplies and cleverly design dynamic control technology are employed. But that isn‘t everything. That„mystical element“ of musical seasoning, such as detailed knowledge of the instruments and the situations in which they are used are just as important for the result, as the intensive contact with musicians and the experience they bring daily which also plays a vital role. There are now also AER systems available for electrical bass and upright bass, and a variety of accessories. All in all: small, high-quality, high-performing: Simply something different.
