Germany’s AER (Audio Electric Research), a premier manufacturer of amplifiers for acoustic, electric and bass instruments, expands its Bottom Line family of electric bass combos with the introduction of the new Amp Three.?
Amp Three follows in the footsteps of its predecessors – Amp One and Amp Two – by being small, rich, and powerful. Based on a 200W power amp, Amp Three employs a pair of heavy-duty 8” bass speakers. The smaller speakers enhance the low-mids for maximum clarity and punch, providing the necessary focus to cut through in both live and studio situations.
A built-in compressor (with adjustable ratio & threshold) and three-band EQ with parametric mids allow you to control and shape your tone as you please, and a one-touch Colour control adds definition to your sound with its mid-cut / treble-boost filter. The Bass Boost adds a simple +10db of gain at 55Hz, and the Tone Balance control enables emphasis of bass or treble, or a combination of both.
Weighing in at 35 lbs and measuring 14.5” x 16.5” x 12.5”, Amp Three offers a superb combination of compact size, impressive power, and wide-ranging features - making it an ideal choice for the professional musician.
Amp Three will be released in North America in April 2011. Suggested Retail Price is $2,199 ($1,999 Street).
