Though not having especially capacious rims, the guitar excels for bottom-end clout, with abundant woody warmth for quite muscular projection if not great sweetness.
The Aero enjoys working with this, delivering some rewardingly rich sounds depending on how you juggle the three-band EQ, phase reverse and, if necessary, notch filter.
Mic gain can be varied via an internal trimpot, and it’s set fairly modestly here – a good thing because, as always with such systems, a little blending goes a long way before undesirably swishy ambience rears its head.
Irritations? The knobs are small and fiddly except for the volume control. Bonus? The auto- chromatic tuner’s bright, fast- acting, circular LED display makes tuning tweaks a doddle.
Pros: Beefy low-end response; rich powered sounds.
Cons: Tight string spacing at bridge; tiny preamp knobs.
Verdict: Strummers will find plenty to enjoy.
