What We Think

The Compact 60 has become one of the most sought after combo amps for archtop and acoustic guitars. It's a wonderfully compact amplifier that is also lightweight and easy to use. The tone is warm, complex, and sounds like it's coming from a much larger package. Having two channels is very nice if you need to use a microphone or blend a dual source guitar. Listen to our soundclips and let us know if you have any questions about the amp. Did we say it was superlight and compact???!!!!

Manufacturer's Description from AER

The Compact 60 was developed after the Acousticube, on which its concept is based and it helped substantially to break out of the ýboutique-cornerý. We were able to prove to a bigger and increasingly more interested public that an all-round, small, powerful and yet simple complete solution for stage, studio and home use does exist and that it works up to the highest demands and standards. Known as 'Bingo' or 'Compact 60' it has found many friends around the world with its size - smiled at in the beginning - being its second strongest side. Tried out during live performance it has become the standard equipment of those musicians who value sound, simplicity and independence. This system with its 8"-twin-cone speaker-system, 60 watts of power and fully developed dynamic control within the model's small dimensions has not only found much appreciation but has also become the basis for a whole line of step by step, developed and refined AER acoustic systems.

About Manufacturer

AER Amplifiers are one of the world’s leaders in acoustic instrument amplification. Whether you’re playing archtop, acoustic guitar, nylon-string guitar or bass, AER places an emphasis on clarity, fidelity and portability. Please feel free to contact Sound Pure to determine the right AER amp for you.
Since 1986 Susanne Janz-Eisenmann, Michael Eisenmann and Udo Rýsner have been working together in a team in various lines of the music sector - as retailers, in the repair field, as acoustic specialists and developers. "Learning by doing", the "passion" for acoustic instruments, "good sound" and the "daily removing of obstacles" have shaped the development from the beginning.

One does not become a manufacturer overnight. Exceptional solutions do not just come out of the blue. To commit oneself implies: a wave starts rolling which is difficult to keep up with, even when trying hard.

Production hall, machines, finding one's self, staff, manufacturing processes, being on the wrong track, not giving up, work safety, reliability, series production, setbacks, further developments, mistakes, customer contacts, expectations, disappointments, international contacts, trade fairs, wholesalers, multilingualism, operation instructions, warranty claims, product line, competition, business letters, financing, marketing strategies, remaining true to oneself - a great deal of things at once. A whirl between euphoria and stackoverflow.
Since 1992 they have been working to make AER the hallmark of acoustic amplification. High-quality components with minimal tolerances, sophisticated circuit technology, calculating constitute the basis to convert plans into melodious sound. More than 20 employees are busy equipping, checking, documenting, installing, assembling, and checking all over again. In the company electronics still means a great deal of manual work. Measuring and simulation do not suffice. In the end, every single amp is played and checked for sound and function.
They work for the musician's everyday task, and that is "live"
