Im looking for some amplification for my Taylor 210-e. I want something that I can eventually put an electric guitar onto. Im hoping to play a small bars or cafe's eventually so itll have to be moderately sized. hoping not to spend more than $500. Any suggestions?

VHT special 6 ultra. however, if you want to keep sparkly cleans with no grit whatsoever your gonna have to get an amp with a lot more headroom. i've got the special 6 and at bedroom levels the cleans are pristine but it really responds to pick attack. you can add just a little bit of dirt depending on how you pick. i imagine playing the acoustic through it will sound pretty good though.

also, i have active emg's so they probably add more dirt to my signal than an acoustic electric would so it will probably stay clean for a while

most bars and cafe's have a pa system.

so you have to decide, what you want most?
most acoustics lose their acoustic mojo through an electric amp.

if you only have $500 you can't afford a rivera sedona...

so, maybe instead, get the type of electric amp you want
(something wt good cleans) and
a DI to line in the acoustic.

and use the house PA when playing out.

or if you want to amp up the taylor at home, spend a few hundred on a
home pa system and save for the electric amp next.

something for double duty, probably isnt as cost efficient or as
tonally preferred as getting two different amps.

yeah, i mean, i have a taylor t5.

so i get what you're talking about.

i play it acoustic with a small band through my pa,
practice at home.

then hook it (or other electric) up to my electric amp for that tone.

when i play out acoustic sets, the bar has a PA.

hanging with friends, i might bring a portable powered pa wedge,
or an electric amp.
