Roland AC-40 reviewed in TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the April issue of the magazine features a review of the AC-40 acoustic instrument combo amplifier from Roland. Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Krzysztof Blas:

“The AC-40 weighs a mere 5,3 kg (11,7 pounds). Such light weight was achieved by using speakers with neodymium magnets. Two 6,5” speakers provide stereo operation. Another factor to lowering the weight of this amplifier is an external power source.”

“The sound quality of Roland AC-40 is virtually unparalleled in this price range. Additionally, the amp offers some neat digital FX. Reverb should please just everybody – it sounds naturally and can be adjusted from subtle shimmer to lush space.”

“Roland AC-40 is a supremely designed amplifier that is perfectly suitable for smaller gigs. It offers natural tone and exceptional mobility that many of its competitors can envy.”
