What Reidys say...
"These look set to be a huge hit with singer-songwriters and performers. The Boss Acoustic Singer amps have two channels with inputs for your guitar and for a microphone, which can be used simultaneously. This means in one amp, you can get a great acoustic guitar sound as well as decent vocals, at price point that was previously much higher.
Both amps share the same features, the Acoustic Singer Pro just has double the wattage so it's more powerful and has more headroom. Some of these features have really impressed us, namely the on board looper within the guitar section that you can control via separate footswitch. Since a certain flame-topped singer-songwriter burst on the scene a few years ago, loop pedals have become more popular than ever and now, there's one integrated into the Boss Acoustic Singer range. The amps also boast Boss's Acoustic Resonance - this adds a little bit more life to piezo pickups, as well as a feedback eliminator on both channels. Boss being Boss, there are also some very good quality effects on board - reverb and delay on the vocal channel, and reverb and chorus on the guitar. You've even got a USB output on the amps so you can record straight into your computer.
What I really like about the new Boss Acoustic Singer amps is the harmony feature - with this, you can add either the higher or lower harmony to what you're singing, or add another voice singing in unison to thicken the sound a little. The harmony feature works on what chords you're playing on the guitar, and what key you're in - from what we've heard so far, it seems to track really well. There's also phantom power on board so you can use a condenser microphone.
The Boss Acoustic Singer amps - the Live and the Studio are a fantastic solution for performers who want a portable, all in one solution to their live sound. They sound great, thanks in large to separate speakers for high and low frequencies and they're packed full of features that will come in handy for a range of players."

The Acoustic Stage Amp Redefined
The Acoustic Singer Live takes the acoustic stage amp to new levels of sound quality and creative versatility. Incorporating BOSS's latest advancements in amplifier research, this compact powerhouse produces rich, vibrant sound with unmatched punch and clarity. Independent channels are provided for acoustic guitar and vocal, and each is equipped with discrete analog input circuits and three-band EQ for studio-quality sound. And with additional features such as Acoustic Resonance, looping, automatic vocal harmonies, effects, and much more, the Acoustic Singer Live gives acoustic musicians everything they need to deliver inspiring and impactful live performances.
Natural Sound with Power, Definition, and Presence
Amplifying your acoustic guitar with the Acoustic Singer Live is a truly inspiring experience. BOSS engineers worked tirelessly to accurately reproduce the instrument's fast transient response and natural, three-dimensional feel, and each amplifier element was carefully developed to achieve this. A powerful bi-amp design with extended peak power delivers tight, high-definition sound with ultra-clean broadband frequency response. The custom woofer and dome tweeter feature innovative materials and precision design points that work together to fill the stage with rich, naturally diffused sound. Other fine details include a unique cabinet construction method that eliminates unwanted resonances, and an integrated tilt-back design for maximum projection.
The Acoustic Singer Live's guitar channel features a discrete analog input circuit that provides ample headroom for the quick attack and wide dynamic range of the acoustic guitar. Also included is BOSS's Acoustic Resonance, which employs advanced processing to eliminate the hard, sterile sound produced by the piezo pickups in most stage guitars. This powerful feature not only enhances the character of your pickup, but also restores the complex natural resonances that are so often lost when amplifying your acoustic. The channel provides a three-band EQ as well, plus a phase switch and notch control for keeping feedback issues at bay. Two types of chorus effects and a guitar-optimized reverb are also on hand to add a finishing touch to your sound.
Mic Channel for Vocals and More
The Acoustic Singer Live also includes a dedicated mic channel, giving singing guitarists a compact, all-in-one amplification solution. A discrete analog input circuit delivers full, clear sound, and phantom power is on tap for using studio-grade condenser microphones. There's also a three-band EQ, phase switch, and anti-feedback notch control, plus top-quality delay/echo and reverb effects to enrich your vocal sound. If you're using the Acoustic Singer Live for guitar only, this channel can alternately be used to mic up your acoustic. For players that use advanced setups, it also works great for blending another amplification source installed in the guitar, such as a second pickup or an internal mic.
Automatic Vocal Harmonies and Looping
A standout feature of the Acoustic Singer Live is its vocal harmony function, which creates live harmonies as you sing and play guitar. It all happens automatically, so there's no complicated setup needed. Your chord progressions are analyzed in real time, generating impressive harmonies perfectly tuned to the key of your song. And if you modulate to a new key, the intelligent processing follows along smoothly and accurately. Two different harmony types are available, plus a unison setting that doubles your voice for more impact. The amp's built-in looper provides even more creative fun, allowing you to build live backing with guitar, vocals, effects, and more.
Advanced Connectivity and Control
The Acoustic Singer Live's rear panel is well stocked for your interfacing needs. Dual DI/Line outputs are provided on XLR connectors, and each features a versatile mode switch for outputting both channels mixed together, or individual channels direct or post-effects. There's also an aux input with level control, perfect for playing backing music from your mobile device. A USB jack offers a direct computer connection to a DAW, while the Rec/Phones jack provides a standard ¼-inch stereo connection for quiet practice sessions or recording to portable devices. Numerous jacks are also available for controlling the harmony function, looper, effects, and more via optional footswitches.
