The AR-371 from Eastman Guitars is a classic archtop with a florentine cutaway, laminated maple top, back, and sides, as well as single mounted humbucking pickup. The 371 model archtop from Eastman is the perfect gigging archtop guitar. Since it has a laminate finish, the guitar performs much better at higher volumes and is less prone to feedback. With the AR 371 CE, you can fit right in with the band on any gig. Talk to our guitar experts for more information regarding the AR-371 from Eastman.

What we think:

This amp is one of the loudest 20 watts I've ever heard!  And clean almost all the way up with single coils. With certain humbuckers or higher output pickups, the driven tone is god-like! This can replace amps with much higher wattage for sure!

The Blackbird 20 watt combo sounds 2-3x louder than most amps with this wattage. It's truly amazing how effective the three dimensional cabinet design is with this amp! Super thick low end is achieveable, but I typically have the bass pretty low for the most even balance.

The reverb has quite the range. I prefer just a touch. This amp takes pedals really really well! and we sometimes get different speakers in our Fargen Combos, so be sure to ask what WGS speaker is in this amp compared to the otehr blackbirds. Always nice to have variety!

Call or email Sound Pure for more details!
