AER. Audio Electric Research from Recklinghausen, Germany.
From Gene Bertoncini to John Williams, Jack Wilkins to Tommy Emmanuel, John Stowell to Carlos Santana, Steve Herberman to David Gilmour or Jan Akkerman, AER Amps have won acceptance in all musical styles where reproduction of the most authentic acoustic guitar sound is demanded.
The Alpha defines the starting point of serious acoustic amplification for AER but coincidentally it may also be one of their most transparent and sonically satisfying models.
"THE AER ALPHA IS A WONDERFUL MATCH WITH MY CLASSICAL aka NYLON-STRING GUITARS: SO NATURAL"
...Brazilian Jazz guitarist living in Seattle
At roughly a 10" cube housing a single 8" extended range speaker, the Alpha's size is diminutive but the output is strong and accurate. In the Alpha, the engineers at AER have reduced size and weight to the maximum without renunciation of what is essential for superb performance. In fact, by itself the sound is open and responsive...and loud!
The AER Alpha features two inputs, a 1/4" and an XLR Combi, with a shared single preamp section. Also part of the package are DI and line outs, onboard digital effects, effects loop, and a headphone socket. There's a handy mount for placing the AER Alpha on a stand which allows the amp to double as a personal monitor.
