Designed by Bob Taylor and a handpicked team, this new two-channel acoustic/vocal amp combines warm sound, simple controls, and elegant woodworking craftsmanship.

The idea was simple: Build a great-sounding acoustic guitar amp you can also sing through; make it compatible with a wide range of acoustic guitar pickups and playing environments; make it practical and easy to use, without over-engineering it with too many controls or effects; make the cabinet from an acoustic guitar tonewood to bring an extra warm, smooth sonic character to the amplified tone; give it the elegant aesthetic appeal of a finely crafted piece of furniture; and, finally, add Bluetooth connectivity to stream music and play or sing along.

Working on the project reminded Bob of the creative, free-wheeling spirit of a startup, like the earliest days of Taylor Guitars, circa ’74 — which gave birth to the name.

Ultimately, the group’s labor of love produced an amp that serves up an ear-pleasing range of acoustic sounds and brings out the very best in musicians looking to be heard.

Sound

The Circa 74 amp was designed to dial down the high-end harshness found in many acoustic amps and produce a warm, analog musical character. The sound is smooth, yet without sacrificing articulation. One important material choice was to build a mahogany cabinet for the amp, leveraging Taylor’s tonewood voicing expertise to contribute to the amp’s smooth sound palette and room-filling sound.

Looks

The warm sonic characteristics are matched visually by the mahogany cabinet, with clean lines and rich wood texture reminiscent of mid-century modern furniture design. The aesthetic is enhanced by the modern-retro fabric grill cloth and an equally gorgeous wood stand designed to complement the amp.

Pre-Sets

The amp was designed and tested with an array of acoustic pickups to offer broad appeal. The user guide includes helpful pre-sets for pickups from Fishman, LR Baggs, K&K, and Taylor’s Expression System, plus microphones from Shure, Electro-Voice, and Telefunken.

Bluetooth

Bluetooth connectivity also alows you to play along, sing along, or just listen to your favorite tunes.
