Product Description

What do you need to put on a show? If you're a solo player/singer, all you need is a mic, a stand, your guitar, and... this! Roland made the 2-channel AC-33 to literally go wherever you need it. It's compact and lightweight, but the sound is anything but; this baby puts out spacious stereo goodness, and you can even add in a very cool array of built-in effects! Heck, Roland even included an onboard phrase looper, so you get 40 seconds of recording time to play with! Best of all, the 30-watt AC-33 runs on either AC power or AA batteries. That's true portability. Now, get out there and wow 'em!

I like it very much...nice sound, and it's light to carry around.
Celia V.
Pros: * Sound: Those 30 watts give it a big sound for a little amp, really warm and rich.
Escape the Clouds
Has a mic input with phantom power so we can have a mini sound system.

I needed a battery powered amp for a gig with no electric so I trusted Roland.
I am writing this to make sure People know what they are getting not to crucify the amp.
I would still buy the amp again I think but the search for something better would be given much more time instead of just trusting the Roland name.

The Good:
Here are the cool good things about this amp which drew me to lay out the money to begin with.
The Looper works great for all it's limits but sounds great. The Chorus effect particularly wide - sounds awesome on acoustic guitar very usable. The rev sounds just OK if you just barely turn it as a light background effect which is not bad and usable anything stronger than that is really awful. The anti feedback seems to work OK. The sound of the amp itself is very good and much better Quality than say a Vox battery powered DA5.

The Bad:
It's just not loud enough for any outside venue so you need something else . I played outdoors under a tent and 50-60 feet away ( that's not so far)it can't carry the sound. Made the people inside the 20 ft tent radius hear the guitar and vocals but that's it.IF you are plugging the line out into a Powered speaker or PA you are golden it's a super nice monitor and preamp but if you are buying it because you need some sound where there is no electricity you need more and you already $600 into it with all the accessories! OUCH !

The Ugly:

#1- The Price aprox $200+ dollars more than the way more powerful and Louder VoX DA5. plus add up all the below to get a real workingman amp...WOW

#2- It needs two FS6 or 4 FS5U switches to actually operate the looper and turn reverb and Chorus on .

I've owned all three of the most portable stereo Roland amps: the Mobile Cube (MC), the Cube Street (CS), and the AC-33. They share many similarities, such as instrument/vocal/AUX inputs and onboard effects. However, after spending a lot of time with each, I found the AC-33 by far the best-sounding and most flexible.

Everyone's needs are different. Here are mine: my music (Escape the Clouds) is this steampunk blend of world, industrial, folk, and electronic. My main onstage instrument is an electric baritone ukulele, which is run through an amp-modelling multiFX and a host of pedals--distortion, octavers, delays, etc.--so, in the end, it sounds nothing like a uke. For about half of my set, I use MP3 backing tracks and do live percussion using electronic drum pads. The other half of the songs are played with just uke and vocals.

In short, I needed something that could present a wide range of sounds, could handle both mic and uke, had some onboard FX, and had an AUX input.

=== Mobile Cube ===
The Mobile Cube was the first one I bought. It has a nice variety of tones--neutral clean, guitar clean, overdrive, distortion. However, with just 2.5 watts per side, one FX for both vox and instrument, and no volume control for its AUX input, it just doesn't have much flexibility. It's a fantastic travel, practice, and writing amp, however, and I still own it for all of those reasons.

=== Cube Street ===
Still, I wanted something more. After a year, I bought a Cube Street. I liked the different, pedal-controlled FX sections for both vocals and instrument, and its rugged construction.

Verified Purchase
When I felt how light this amp is, I wasn't expecting much, but once plugged in, I was delighted by the clarity and lack of noise or distortion of this little treasure. The chorus, which I didn't expect to use (being an acoustic purist) is absolutely gorgeous and will be used on some pieces. The reverb, too, is very natural sounding.
If the amp didn't have a looper, I would still have bought it, but I was also surprised and impressed by the looper's quality. The automatic start has zero latency, and the sound is exactly what you hear from the amp in normal mode. It will be fun to use this for improvised layering on gigs. I'm buying a double foot pedal on e-bay: this is essential for live use, or any time you have a guitar in your hands.
I bought this device because I sometimes need to play outdoors, away from power: I haven't yet tried it with batteries, so I can't comment on its abilities in this direction: apparently the power (thus, volume) is less, but I suspect there isn't a powerful battery-powered amp out there, and this will probably be adequate.
I connected the 'line out' to an ESV powered speaker, and together these units make a gorgeous sound for solo acoustic playing. Easy to set up, light to carry, and superb sound!
It would be nice if the full range of controls could be used with the 'i-pod in' feed, but I guess I can always get an adapter/connector to allow me to do this.
I have had the amp for one week so far...

I have now used this amp for a couple of years, but only recently discovered that if you use a battery powered preamp plus the amp[ on batteries), it's REALLY Loud. I use this as a very good little monitor, or for very intimate situations. With the preamp, it's great for where there's no power supply. They should mention this in the catalog.
