Our musical future got brighter on this weekend with the purchase of one of these babies.
As any acoustic player will know, normal guitar amplifiers work by a process of converting your own energy into back pain, and then transforming that pain into a sound quite unlike an acoustic guitar, and which feeds back as soon as you turn the gain knob above 2.
AER take a different approach. Inside each one of their amplifiers is an army of tiny German engineers with the ability to mimic any kind of acoustic instrument you care to name. Plus they are very strict dieters and hardly weight a thing.
The banjo sounds good through this, the banjitar better. Played twice with it so far and apparently is is still a touch tinny, but nothing the mixer can’t fix.
