Bugera announces AC60 acoustic instrument amplifier at NAMM 2015


Bugera has launched the ultra-portable AC60 2-channel acoustic instrument amplifier at NAMM 2015, with 60 Watts of output power, a Turbosound 8″ dualcone speaker, active channel EQs, and an on-board Klark Teknik multi-FX processor with 16 presets.

Channel 1’s High/Low switch with Clip indicator accommodates both active and passive pickup-equipped instruments and features a 3-band EQ (Bass/Mid/Treble) which has been optimized for acoustic guitar for a warm and transparent sound. Channel 2’s XLR Combo jack and Line/Mic switch lets you select your input source, and works equally well with line-level instruments, or dynamic and condenser microphones. A dedicated clip indicator provides visual confirmation when you reach the ideal gain setting.

The AC60 also features a high-end, 24-Bit Multi-FX processor that features 16 effects presets including seven reverb programs, which range from small rooms all the way up to the reverberation of a cathedral, modulation, delay and various other combinations.

An additional 3.5 mm stereo Aux input is provided for your mp3 player, drum machine, etc. Operation is ultra-easy, just turn the Gain dial to set the levels for each channel, and the volume control on your external device for playing backing music or drum tracks. On the rear panel, you’ll find an XLR Direct Output for sending your sound directly to a mixing board, and a jack each for your Tuner, FX Send and Return, Line Out, Phones and a dual footswitch connector for Mute and internal effects (footswitch FSB102B not included).

MNJ has been writing articles, reviews and blogs for the DV online magazine for the last five years or so. Although he has been playing for longer than he cares to remember and is now officially an 'oldie', he is still mad for all things guitar related and when not busy in his studio he's learning new songs, practising bluegrass guitar, painting his house and taking his dogs out. If banished to a desert island and forced to take only one guitar he'd take a Les Paul. Actually, make that several Les Pauls, a Strat, a Tele, an ES-335, a vintage Martin and some boutique amps. Battery powered obviously.
