BOSS’s Flagship Acoustic Amp Recognized for Its Great Sound and Creative Performance Features
In the August 2017 issue of Guitar Player, musician and GP contributor Jimmy Leslie put BOSS’s Acoustic Singer Pro to the test for the magazine’s Frets acoustic section. Jimmy praised the amp’s “smooth and silky” sound, versatile two-channel design, and useful onboard features for solo performers. He particularly liked the fact that the amp’s looper allowed him to loop both vocals and guitar, putting that feature “in the awesome category.” In wrapping up the review, Jimmy said, “The Acoustic Singer Pro delivers on its all-in-one promise and definitely facilitates performing as a one-man band.”

About the Acoustic Singer Amp Series
Offering rich, natural sound and a wealth of onboard creative features, BOSS’s Acoustic Singer amps have become favorites of both singing guitarists and solo instrumentalists. They feature independent channels for acoustic guitar and vocal, and each channel includes three-band EQ, reverb, and more.
The guitar channel is equipped with Acoustic Resonance processing and two types of chorus effects, while the vocal channel has selectable phantom power and a lush delay/echo effect optimized for voice. There’s also a vocal harmony function derived from the popular VE-8 Acoustic Singer pedal, and an onboard looper for creating on-the-spot backing with vocals and guitar.
Two models are offered in the series, and each has been carefully tuned for pro-level audio performance on stage. The Acoustic Singer Pro is equipped with an 8-inch speaker, dome tweeter, and 120 watts of power, while the Acoustic Singer Live is equipped with a 6.5-inch speaker, dome tweeter, and 60 watts of power. Beyond these differences, the amps include identical feature sets.
