AER Compact 60/3 Tommy Emmanuel Acoustic Amp
Over the years, Emmanuel has relied on a number of different AER amps, and has recently incorporated the company's Colourizer sound-shaping preamp tool into his rig.
The signature amp is based on AER's best-selling Compact 60, the 60W model used most often by Emmanuel.
In another subtle personal touch, AER has incorporated a reverb/delay effect setting from the Alesis Midiverb II, long used by Tommy, into the Compact TE's onboard effects section (in position 3). Additionally, contrary to the standard Compact 60, the DI Out signal will incorporate the effects. Finally, the gig bag strap features signature embroidery.
With all his influences in mind, we set out to build Tommy‘s signature amp. The result is the Compact TE Signature, which features:
• Aboriginal art carved into one side of the cabinet
• "TE" initials & "CGP" carved on other side of the cabinet
• All effects through to DI-out
• Tommy’s original Alesis Midiverb II effect settings implemented into the amp’s on board effects section (position 3)
