Boston AK60G Amp Reviews?
« on: April 27, 2018, 08:47:08 PM »
Hey folks!

I was wondering if anyone can offer any insight on this particular amp? I couldn't find any reviews online. I couldn't even find a manual online.

I'm seeing a Line out and Line in jack though I'm not sure if this is an effects loop as well.

I'm looking into using this as a rehearsal amp. I'd be running my Pod HD 500's amp sims into it so I'm not particularly concerned with the amp's dirt but I was wondering if anyone has had issues with it like reliability  etc.

Your thoughts are much appreciated!

not an effects loop. more of an input to put in mp3 players and an out to send to the mixer.
if you're looking for a cheapo amp, look at the STAGG GAR60. those I can tell you are somewhat gig worthy in terms of loudness and reliability.

its just frickin heavy!
hahaha ako binibiyak ko muna yung wetpaks para makita kung may yellow thingy hahahaha

Salamat sa feedback sir. Was initially looking for a 2nd hand Stagg 60GAR din kaso ang hirap maghanap ng fit sa 5k budget. Nakita ko lang yung Boston and thought na exact clone sya nung Stagg dahil sa look nya but I wasn't sure kaya here I am seeking advice and reviews.

The Stagg 60 watter is going to be good for modelers. For some reason it always sounded too hifi for me which could be a function of them using a more efficient, PA type speaker. That said, this is what you want if youre going to run your amp sims into this.

Oo sobra. Totally recommending putting locking casters on that thing as a mod.
