I'm looking for an Acoustic/Electric combo amp...

Something I could use to switch in between an acoustic and electric.

I heard Vox is good for this...

I could just buy a marshall full stack with 2 different heads... but i'm kinda looking for a small gig amp.. For like churches, maybe even to use as a monitor some of the time... i figure anyplace big enough to use the marshall full stack will have a PA i could use anyway, at least for acoustic..

Don't know if such a thing exists, i can't find it...

Thanks...

Vox is deffinitely a good way to go if thats a brand you're considering. most vox amps take acoustics very well. maybe not the valvetronix line as much, but an AC30 or AC15 should sound excellent. I would go with the 30 because the extra wattage can only help you with getting more clean headroom for your acoustic. You can even mess around with which channel to plug your guitar into, maybe you want your acoustic a little grimier? Some consider that sinful but if it works for you then it works. if you have the money get the Vox AC30, if not then whats your budget?

Just looking for something to take with me to college, or get when i'm in college...

I have a Taylor 210E i'm hoping will work, and then i'm thinking of trading my Warlock Deluxe EMG 81/85 setup for a strat - more versatile guitar, beside the fact i hate that shred metal stuff the warlock was made for lol

so yeah..

I want something that'll work as an acoustic amp for small gigs, and electric amp as well.. maybe with the ability to switch over between songs.. u know?

VOX seems promising, and yes, i like some grungy nirvana type stuff :P

So yeah, I'll look at vox, is there seriously no combo amp that does both acoustic and electric?

I had a Fender HRD that I got as part of a trade. Anyway, I thought that it sounded very nice with my Ovation Adamas on the clean channel. Of course, an HRD is meant for an EG which sounds great, especially if you have a ts808.

Not by design because they are two different signals

Well the sedona seams to be designed for both acousic and electric....

but pretty much my best bet is going to be to buy a cab, and two seperate heads?


I think i'll check out the AC30 by VOX... looks promising

you cant take these amps to college with you.

what are you using it for?

are you in a band?
what's your total budget for both EG and acoustic?

i'm guessing it needs to be small?

what type of music do you play?
