First time poster here. Would you guys consider an acoustic amp a worthwhile investment for a non-gigger? I play acoustic guitar quite a bit and am getting my first acoustic/electric soon. I do a lot of home recording with both electric guitar and acoustic - have a Rivera amp for the electric and mike the acoustic with a Shure condenser. I'm a bedroom guitar player - don't see gigging in my future unless my skills improve?
I've run across a high-end acoustic amp at a good (but still expensive) price. What do you think? Do most guitar players have a separate amp for acoustic?
No I wouldnt' bother - if your guitar is high-end it may come with a high-end piezo for those gigging occasions... just turn up and plug in to whatever is there. I guess for peace of mind you could get an amp for better onstage monitoring, but you prolly won't need it.
For home recording: treat yourself to a nice mic
For home playing - sit opposite a wall or a fairly reflective surface to enhance your listening experience thumbsup Amps just don't cut it in comparison
