Gearank High Notes

Gearank Recommendation

The Acoustasonic 40 appeared on our recommended list for Acoustic Amps Under $200 from July 2020 until a price increase meant we had to remove it in August 2021.


The Acoustasonic 40 is a portable acoustic amp that's designed to work well with both acoustic-electric instruments and dynamic microphones.

It sports a 2-channel 40W solid state amplifier section that drives two 6.5" full range cone speakers.

Each channel has dedicated 2 x XLR-1/4" combo inputs, allowing you to plug in a guitar and a mic at the same time.

The two channels also have volume control, 3-band EQ and dedicated reverb control.

It also has a headphone out, XLR line out, and an Aux input.

If you're looking for a portable and affordable acoustic guitar amp that can be plugged into a PA system when needed, then this is your best bet.
