Now shipping, the AC-33 is a battery-powered amp designed for the acoustic guitar. It features instrument, XLR microphone and aux inputs, along with built-in digital effects, an anti-feedback function, an onboard looper and an integrated tilt stand for enhanced sound projection.
The AC-33 runs on eight AA batteries (including NiMH rechargeable types) or AC power. The 30-watt stereo amp and dual 5-inch speakers provide sound coverage for any intimate performance situation, including restaurants, coffee houses, open-mic nights, street busking and more. The multiple inputs allow the AC-33 to function as a portable P.A., amplifying a guitar, vocal and backing track from a music player all at the same time.
The AC-33 comes equipped with Roland''s stereo chorus effect, as well as easy-to-use reverb and ambience effects. For worry-free playing in high-volume situations, the anti-feedback function automatically detects acoustic instrument feedback and eliminates it before it starts. The onboard looper allows users to record and play back up to 40 seconds of on-the-fly musical backing, with the ability to capture unlimited “sound on sound”–style overdubs. The looper and effects can both be controlled with optional foot switches.
The AC-33 is now available with a suggested retail price of $558.50.
