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.

When it arrived (2 days, thanks Prime!), I tried it out at home, and it sounded plenty loud, with clean, crisp sound. At the local bar, however, in competition with the PA and several guitar amps, this little guy struggled to keep up, requiring the volume and EQ levels to be set to 8-9, MINIMUM, just to be heard. At that level, the sound was muddy, and I could tell I was overdriving the amp.
Rather than return such a nice little amp, I decided to try something else - I bought a Behringer Ultragain MIC100 Tube-style pre-amplifier (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000CZ0RME/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) to use with the AT108. WHAT A DIFFERENCE - with the AT108 levels at 5, the pre-amp (gain and output set in the lower quadrant) brings out a surprising improvement - MUCH more sound, and it's crisp and clean. Problem solved, and I don't have to lug around a 50W amp.
Naturally, if you're not competing with other amps, you needn't go the route I did, but for me, this is an excellent combination.
At first, I was wondering if I wasn't hearing the amp since it seemed like the strings were making the sound, but then I realized that the sound coming out of the amp was close enough to the sound from the strings that I couldn't easily tell them apart.
This is a great deal for the price. The size is great for lugging around and the unit's 8" speaker can definitely belt out the sound.
Definitely going to play with the hi/mid/low adjustments to give better balance between the upper and lower ranges from the guitar.
There are cheaper kits out there... but this is a great unit for the price if you don't want any built-in effects and don't want to deal with USB/firmware updates like some of the amps out there.
Note, was deciding between this unit and the KT108, which is a keyboard amp system. The main difference as far as I can tell between the two units, beside the external aesthetics, is the 3 pin XLR input on this one and the second 1/4" input jack on the KT108. With a balanced XLR to 1/4" jack cable or adapter, you would be able to plug in a second guitar. Each input has its own volume dial, which is nice. But the hi/mid/low adjustments is for the output only.
Notes about hiss/hum. I had the unit plugged into a guitar and dialed up to about 5/6 on the instrument volume and I did not hear any his. If the cable plugged in is connected to a loose jack with poor insulation, however, that's when I hear hiss.
So getting the strings to balance on the output was fairly straightforward: adjust the guitar's outputs so that it's not favoring the bass strings. :) And adjust the amp's outputs so that the hi bands are getting more amplification. I suspect this unit can work with a wide range of instruments, just need to ensure the settings are optimized for your instrument.
