The Alpha is a professional, compact and powerful amplifier system. Especially developed for the enhancement of acoustic instruments, it is also suitable for electrical instruments. With one channel but two independant input stages (line and microphone/line) the Alpha offers you various options in signal processing. 40 Watts plus the 8"-twin-cone speaker-system of the Alpha provide you with a well-balanced tone at all sound pressure levels. All AER-systems are subtly dynamically controlled, which ensures absolute reliability in full load operation despite strikingly small sizes and little weight.

Hand-built in Germany, AER amps are widely considered to be the hallmark of acoustic amplification. Since 1992, the company has used high-quality components, sophisticated circuit technology, and precision craftsmanship to convert their designs into first class sonic solutions for acoustic, electric and bass instruments.
