Roland AC 33 for on the Go

December 23, 2015

For a small battery powered option the Roland AC 33 can’t be beat. It’s a fantastic little lamp that has options and effects like reverb and chorus two channels one for a guitar pick up and one XLR mic input no phantom power.  There is also a 1/8 Stereo line in to power a iPod or MP3 player. To power the amp you have two options plug it in  or the option to power the amplifier with a battery pack using eight AA batteries.  There are a few aftermarket cases available to transport the amp and protect it.  I purchased a Arriba AC 130 Soft Case, for the Roland AC 33 on eBay.  I will be primarily using the amp with my Jorge De Zofia equipped with a LR Baggs Dual Source System (Element and Mic) blended.    

Update 1/7/16
I’ve used the AC for 3 small gigs and it workes wonderfully.  The tone from the amp complements acoustic instruments especially my guitars with pickup systems such as the LR Baggs Dual Source and Fishman Presus Blend.  I’ve added 2 Boss FS-5U to control the built in looper and it has performed flawlessly.  Very satisfied with the amp.  It’s really a great travel and go compact gig rig.
