Fender unveils Acoustic SFX amp, hints at Bluetooth amps at NAMM 2017

the amp features adjustable SFX technology with room-filling sound.

The new amp is lightweight and designed for acoustic players.

Fender has announced that its new Acoustic SFX limited edition amp is available online now and at dealers in December.

The new hand-rubbed walnut-stain amp features a fitted cover for proper storage, two-channel 160-watt stereo combo amplifier, adjustable SFX technology with room-filling sound, and onboard studio-quality effects, including hall, reverb, echo, delay, chorus and vibratone.

The amp also features tempo-synch effects and there’s the option to add a two-button footswitch for per-channel effect bypass.

Designed for acoustic players, the lightweight design is portable and ideal for a grab and go rig for small venues.

In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Fender chief exec Andy Mooney revealed that the company will be unveiling a new amp that can connect to apps wirelessly via Bluetooth.

The amp is said to be available next year, so a NAMM 2017 showcase seems very likely.

It seems the firm is focussing quite heavily on integrating its products with users’ smartphones. Fender has revealed it is also planning a practice-room app that can teach guitarists to play any song in their music library.
