AER Amplifiers

Founded 1992 by Udo Roesner and Bernd Hugo, AER's goal from the start was to develop amplifiers that could faithfully reproduce the natural sound of acoustic instruments. Fast-forward to today, and the company's innovative, compact, rugged, feature-rich, and gorgeous sounding amplifiers are used by many of the top guitarists in the world.

Meet The Compact 60/4

Authentic Tones

Utilizing an 8” dual cone full-range speaker and bassreflex enclosure, the 60 watt Compact 60/4 is known for its ability to faithfully reproduce the natural sound of acoustic instruments, offering clear and transparent amplification without coloration.

Intuitive To Use

Though the Compact 60/4 offers two independent channels (each with its own input), built-in effects, a 3-band equalizer on each channel, phantom power, a line out and DI out, it never feels daunting to use. Within seconds of plugging in you'll be able to coax gorgeous, natural tones out of your instrument.


The AER Compact 60/4 is designed with portability in mind. At roughly 10" x 12" x 9" and 15lbs, its compact and lightweight, making it a popular choice among acoustic guitarists who need a portable amplifier for both practice and live performances.


AER is known for producing durable and reliable amplifiers, and the Compact 60/4 is no exception. It's built to withstand the rigors of touring and frequent use - the included high-quality padded gig bag doesn't hurt either.
