    I had to wait to have my Martin D-18 fitted with a K&K mini. I finally had a chance to play around with my newly acquired Fender Acoustic Pro.

    Playing and singing into it are simply a treat. It makes my guitar louder but it does not change the sound one bit. It is my Martin, but louder. I have been using the second input as a vocal mic and it sounds great. I love this thing. I have not gigged with it yet, but it seems very powerful.

    As a bonus, I can plug my iphone into it and it makes a nice little sound-system.

    It's nice when something does what it's supposed to do, isn't it? congrats on a good purchase.

    I'll Google it now and learn more.

    Nice. I spent a lot of time playing my Martin through the same fender amp when I was deciding to buy the Martin. Nearly bought the amp as well - it did sound great!

    I just acquired one as well to replace my aging SWR Strawberry Blonde. First of all it's so light-17 lbs and the built in handle is a good idea. It seems a little bass heavy on the sound but hey, just turn the bass knob down a little. I haven't tried it with a microphone yet so it's good to hear that you like the sound of vocals through it.

    I have thought about those Pro's. They keep pretty high $ for a while now but if they come down I may give one a shot. I want one with at least a 10" speaker though.
    I've had some trouble finding the right amp because I play an archtop Jazz guitar and an acoustic at my Duo gig and haven't found the perfect amp for both yet....
    I have a little Fender Acoustasonic 40 amp and it's not bad at all. Had a Roland 40 and a Fishman Mini, the Fender is almost as good. Not too fond of the whizzer cone speakers in it though.
