“The Genzler Acoustic Array Pro is the best fiddle amp I’ve ever used, and I’ve a played alot over my career. The adjustable midrange takes this from being a guitar amp to being an acoustic instrument amp! Whether I use it in an intimate jazz setting or with my 9 piece western swing band, it always delivers with warmth and clarity.” – Shelby Eicher
