The Acoustasonic 40 amplifier offers portable amplification for acoustic-electric guitar and microphone. It's a simple, flexible "grab and go" solution for a variety of musical performance and basic public address applications, and it can also be used as an onstage monitor when combined with a PA system.
For more effective high-frequency response, the Acoustasonic 40 bears the unusual distinction of being the only Fender guitar amp to use a “whizzer”
cone - a small supplementary speaker cone attached to the voice coil of the amps 6” speaker.
For extra ambience, the Acoustasonic 40’s instrument channel features built-in reverb.

I use this for my acoustic guitar and nylon string classical guitar. It sounds great with both these guitars. The preamp (Treble, Mid & bass) works like breeze. If you slightly reduce Mid for acoustic guitar, it sounds really great. On board 'Reverb' effect is of high quality, it works so nice while playing lead especially with classical guitar. I am surprised that Mic works great in this little amplifier. I use Shure SM58 in one channel and acoustic guitar is another channel. The ability to tweak the EQ and Reveb separately is for these two channel are really useful feature. I use it for live gig where i use Line out (XLR out) from this amp to the main mixer. If you use XLR to XLR the gain is too much and it clips in mixer. Hence i use XLR to TS cable (XLR out from Fender amp to TS input in mixer, then it works like a charm) I am very much satisfied with the quality of sound and line out i get out of this little amplifier. It is slightly heavy though it looks small; considering the quality of sound i don't complain about the weight.
You can't go wrong with a Fender. Very clear and near to real sound. The reverb is another good feature. The whizzer cones makes the sound coming out of the speakers somewhat crisper and clearer than the other amps I have. In a nutshell, the Fender Acoustatonic 40 reproduces the acoustic guitar sound very accurately. The two combination inputs in each channel is another plus point as well. It allows you to plug in an instrument or a mic into both the inputs and both channels have their dedicated reverb control which is definitely awesome. I was initially somewhat apprehensive about low tones with the 6.5" cones but they performed quite well on the low tones as well. Each channel can be tweaked further with a dedicated 3 band eqaulizer. This amp has a DI out which is even awesome as you can plug it into your studio recording device or into any in-house PA system during a gig. This is a great value for money amp. If you are interested in this amp and you are living in India, then get it from bajaao.com. They are a very reliable seller. You can buy from them with confidence.
Sound quality is awesome... you can heard ever every single sound of instrument or mic with this amp. The best amp for acoustic guitar...
Acoustic sounds are excellent and bajaao gave me the cheapest price amongst all online shops.
This amp creates a mirror image of the sound of your acoustic .; the vibrance the wood resonance everything can be heard in this amp. I was always scared of losing the feel I get through my acoustic without using an amp but this amp resolved it all.
