Building upon our heritage in innovative acoustic amplification design and build, the AA-MINI brings many of the features and performance of our larger AA-PRO into a smaller, more compact acoustic amplifier.  Both models bring a unique and fresh design and performance level to acoustic instrument amplification, from acoustic/electric guitars, mandolin, ukulele, violin, cello or other acoustic instruments.

The AA-MINI offers a full featured preamp design with dedicated Mic and Instrument channels, our unique Contour circuit (Inst Ch), flexible EQ network, Digital Effects, a 100 Watt Class D power amplifier platform, unique angled cabinet shape, and a sophisticated speaker system design.

Acoustic Guitar Magazine
“When I plugged a Martin OM-28E into the Mini’s instrument channel, with the EQ controls flat, I was straight away impressed by the amp’s present and natural sound, its clarity and detail —just like the Martin, only much more of it”. – Adam Perlmutter

Description

What does Acoustic Array mean?

The focal point of this light-weight, compact combo is a speaker system engineered for acoustic instrument reproduction that is based upon our revolutionary Bass Array® format from our bass guitar cabinet designs.     The AA-MINI speaker system features a specialized 8” woofer in a ported chamber along with the performance and pattern control of a proprietary line array column, which is mounted forward of the woofer in the center of the speaker baffle.   This line array column utilizes 4 custom designed 1.5” neodymium soft dome drivers.   The use and placement of the line array provides exceptional clarity and ultra-smooth response, along with broad dispersion and projection that line array principals provide.   The custom  8” woofer delivers tight, punch and roundness for the lows and lower mids, while the upper mids and high frequencies are produced by the line array and are clear, natural and authentic to the acoustic instrument.

The blend of this innovative speaker system along with our preamp and amplifier platform delivers an acoustic amp like no other available.  At 21 lbs,  Acoustic Array® MINI is a versatile package ideal for a variety of instruments and venues.

Specifications

PREAMP –— Dedicated Mic and Instrument Channels.

  • INST. INPUT 5Meg ohm input impedance.
  • CHANNEL VOLUME  – Voiced to provide natural, pristine, transparent reproduction of the instrument.
  • INPUT PHASE SWITCH – reverses the polarity of the instrument input to help control potential feedback.
  • CONTOUR — continuously variable control of a pre-shaped curve that boosts lows and highs while simultaneously cutting Mids.  The slope is fairly gentle which keeps the tone shaping very musical.  This curve covers a wide range of EQ and offers a quick and simple starting point for EQ adjustments.
  • ACTIVE EQUALIZATION – The AA-MINI’s Instrument channel contains an active 3 band equalizer with a sweepable parametric mid-range frequency control.
    • Bass    +/- 15dB boost/cut shelving curve with a corner frequency of 75Hz
    • Mid     +/- 15dB boost/cut of the variable mid frequency selected
    • Freq.     Variable mid frequency from 200Hz- 5kHz
    • Treble +/- 15dB boost/cut shelving curve with a corner frequency of 7.5kHz
  • Digital Effect — The Mic channel has its own REVERB level control and the Instrument channel offers both REVERB and CHORUS controls that provide the user with the most flexibility.  The parameters of each effect are variable at the Master Section with the Reverb Time and Chorus Rate controls.

POWER AMP — The Acoustic Array® MINI uses a state of the art, Class D power amplifier design and a high frequency auto-sensing universal switch-mode power supply (SMPS) to achieve unprecedented high performance in a lightweight package.  For global use, there are no Voltage Switches to change or jumpers to move.  This SMPS senses the line voltage from 100-240 Volts and automatically configures itself.

    After playing through all of the most popular acoustic amps, I stumbled upon the Genzler line of amps at my local guitar shop.
    These amps are incredible! I purchased the Acoustic Array Mini because it makes my beautiful Martin OM sound just like my beautiful Martin OM.
    The sound is clear and precise, the box is powerful enough for a small room, and it absolutely blows away the competition. To top things off, when I had questions about the functionality of the amp I e-mailed the company, and heard back from Jeff Genzler, himself, with advice!

    I was looking for an acoustic amp that could also do vocals for smaller solo gigs. I was drawn to the mini initially because I’m a bass player and I own a Magellan 350 with 10 and 12 bass array cabs.
    At the time, I had a similar sized amp from a very well regarded acoustic amp/pickup manufacturer (rhymes with “squish-pan”). The Genzler mini blew it away. The depth of the eq, the contour, the effects – all at least two steps up from the 60-watt loudbox.
    Granted, it costs more, but this is not a matter of marginal improvement. I mostly play a D-28 with a simple K&K passive pickup under the bridge – the mini can take my exact tone and make it (almost) too loud for a small room show, the eq/contour can tame the lows and make the guitar sound similar to smaller/tighter acoustics. With my art/Lutherie parlor guitar – it can match the tone or fill out the lows and make it sound huge.
    Add to that the separate control on vocals for reverb and this amp is truly all I need. If there is a room this amp can’t fill, then there should be a decent pa anyway – and that’s where the di out comes in…..
