We add this great US brand to our stock of amps. Acoustic Image have been making tarnsparent amps for acoustic instruments for quite some years now and this are actually their 4th generation of amps and we are thrilled to see they are the best ever.
Small and lightweight are two words that come immediately to mind when you say Acoustic Image. That's one of the reasons why thousands of upright bass players in the world use them. It sounds just as good for upright or electric bass. In this new series of amps the preamps have been improved with even better sound, more features. Also there's more power from the amp section and the cabinets are far more efficient. To sum up: they are better than ever.
This is the Flex Cab and it is a triamp selfpowered speaker. It is algo probably the smallest 2x10" cab ever made (one 10" is firing downwards, the other forward firing). There are two 300W power sections (one for each 10" driver). The 2.5" tweeter is powered by a 50W amp.
The sound is natural, deep and clear. There's power and pressure to get you covered in most situations.
You can use this powered cab with your favourite bass preamp or even direct if you have an active bass. Cool!
Of course Acoustic Image's own Flex Preamp seems to be the perfect combination. This two channel preamp can be mounted on a mic stand and connects to the cab with a RJ45/Cat5 cable, allowing you to have all the controls in front of you and place the cabinet where it sounds the best in a particular room.
We have to say we are really impressed by the quality of this product. Get one and we warrany you'l put a smile in your face when you use it.
