Anyone know of any good acoustic amps that are reasonable priced? Hopefully around $100, but if I need to go higher, I can. Know of any good ones?

I just want something that sounds good for my acoustic-electric guitar. The Peavy Vypyr VIP 1 sounds really cool, but I really can't find much about it online. Anyone know if this is any good?

Thanks!

I live in Alaska, and I want it for home use with an acoustic guitar. The USB recording feature on the Peavey Vypyr VIP 1 looked very interesting, but I don't need it if there is a better amp that doesn't have it.

If it's for home use, there's really no need for an amp. All it'd be is a small PA. If you want to record, I'd look into an audio interface.

Buy a nice interface instead. You don't need an amp.

Grr.... I want an amp because you can do some cool things with amps you cannot without it. Volume with ease, loops, reverb, other effects.
There are plenty of sane reasons to get an amp for my acoustic... :\
I don't need an interface to record, I was just a bit curious about the Vypy VIP's usb port for recording.
I don't need recording, that was just an added bonus, I just want to know of a good acoustic amp.

Not really if it's strictly for home use...

It sounds like you want an amp for the processing, not the amplification, so in that case I'd look at an acoustic-geared multi-effects unit, like something from the Boss AD series or a Zoom A series. But looping is not built in to any acoustic amp or processor as far as I've looked; you'd have to get a dedicated pedal like a TC Electronic Ditto or Boss Loop Station.

EDIT: But if you REALLY want the name of a good acoustic amp, I've heard nothing but good about the Fishman Loudbox Mini. But you don't need that.
