Acoustic Guitar Amps

According to Tone Topics (see web link below): "Acoustic amplifiers are somewhat closer to average PA systems. They’re used for acoustic guitars that have piezo pickups, most often accompanied with active electronics.

Their tone is “flatter” across the spectrum and they tend to give more of that hi-fi quality, mostly because they feature additional tweeters for high-end tones.

Acoustic amps also have an additional input for microphones that can either be used for vocals or for mic’d-up acoustic guitars.

Tonal Differences
Comparing the frequency response of an acoustic amp vs electric amp, electric guitar amps tend to have more or less pronounced mid-range. They’ll often alter the tone more than the guitar itself.

Acoustic amps, on the other hand, are designed to work with an acoustic guitars natural tone without altering it too much."
