Where Are the Tubes?
Ask any guitarist what they want most from an amp and they'll answer with a single word--TONE. That quest for tone drove us to develop our amplifiers. Behringer's proprietary VTC (Virtual Tube Circuitry) gives the AT108 its in-your-face tube amp tone. It's an amp with such rich, harmonic character and buttery tube-like goodness, you'll wonder where we hid the tubes.
This 15-Watt guitar amp is a singer/songwriter's dream come true. The AT108 features an instrument input as well as a mic input, both with their own volume control. Just plug in a dynamic mic and an acoustic guitar, and you're ready to rock the coffee shop. A three-band EQ gives you precise tone-shaping capabilities.
A Little Privacy
If you're not yet ready for primetime, or just need to hold a low-key rehearsal, the AT108 features a 1 /4" input for playing along with your favorite songs, and a headphone input for private jamming.
Built to Last
The AT108's electronic components are built into a robust metal enclosure for maximum protection. The cabinet is made of high-grade wood covered with durable vinyl.

Only downside is that there's no accompanying battery pack, but as long as you always have an outlet, it's actually a good thing and less trouble since batteries have their own requirements/issues...
No one hears themselves the way they sound to others. This simple reality must be understood and somehow corrected for by anyone recording music. This is why performers in the studio wear headphones while recording and why a small acoustic amplifier is a necessary piece of gear for an acoustic guitar playing, singing song writer. The Behringer Ultracoustic AT108 acoustic amplifier more than does the job.
As the owner of eight completely acoustic guitars, I thought a lot for years about trying amplification. I probably never hesitated with ambivalence about any other purchase in my life. Much to my delight, together with a passive, inexpensive hole-mounted pick-up (the Seymour Duncan SA3SC Woody) , an inexpensive Audio- Technica vocal microphone and this Behringer AT108, I can hear a fullness and richness that actually makes good instruments sound even better!
At least as importantly, it allows me to hear myself more the way I am heard by others who will not hear me, as I do in part, from the resonations inside my skull.
One of the most universal and predictably shocking experiences anyone who records their own voice is struck by is how different it sounds when recorded than it does when they are singing or speaking it. The mechanics of this ubiquitous situation are not difficult to fathom.
To hear what those listening hear, you have to arrange things so as to hear the sound coming TO you, not FROM you. That is where an amplifier comes in handy.Read more ›
I also have a real tube amp, a Bugera 5 watt, that was twice as expensive, but it doesn't sound as good as this amp, however the bugera is not geared towards acoustic guitars.
I hook my laptop up to this amp by using a special cable I bought at Radio Shack. I connect the headphone output on my laptop to the CD input on the amp. That way I can play along with songs that I have downloaded. A lot of amps do not have the CD input jack hookup but this does. With my PC, headphones and guitar all connected to this amp, I can be very quite and not disturb the neighbors.
There's no gain adjustment or distortion of any kind but an acoustic guitar player normally doesn't want those, or will have them as low as possible.
I hooked up my electric guitar to this amp, a Squire Strat and an Epiphone hollow body. Surprisingly, the Strat sounded great, but the Epiphone hollow body sounded poor. The Strat sounded like early Beatles. I guess because the early Beatles always used tube amps with no distortion. They also used hollow body guitars with tube amps, like on their song The Night Before. Ah but I digress. The Hollow Body and Strat are not acoustic guitars and not meant to be played on this amp.
My Acoustic Fender Kingman sounds superb with this amp. It sounded better then I expected. It really sounds acoustic and tube like.
So, to sum it up:
The good news: Has tube sound, CD input, you can connect your computer to it.
The downside, the fake leather covering looks cheesy. No Gain or reverb control. Some electric guitars will sound a bit muffled.
