Before 1989, acoustic musicians must have felt left out when walking around the amplifier section of their local music store. While small attempts had been made at producing an amplifier specifically for acoustic players, the fireworks of the amplifier industry were reserved for the owners of electric guitars and basses. Then came Trace Acoustic.
With the Trace Acoustic range, the British manufacturer revolutionized the world of acoustic instrumentation, from guitars to banjos to mandolins, and the musical instrument industry as a whole. Boasting very high impedance piezo pickup inputs, notch filters, phantom power, DSP effects, and a unique circuitry named Dynamic Correction which reproduced the sparkling top end of an acoustic instrument without harsh-sounding high frequency horns, the amplifiers were quickly recognized as the standard. No wonder Trace Acoustic made fans of some of the world's most respected musicians.
Today, the influence of Trace Acoustic is widely felt throughout the industry, but as in 1989, Trace Acoustic is raising the stakes again. Acoustic musicians can now experience a new generation of Trace Acoustic models, more evolved than their classic forebears yet still endowed with the engineering genius that has produced Studio-quality acoustic reproduction on stage for almost two decades. Lighter than ever before, more powerful and carrying a wealth of new cutting edge features, the new generation of Trace Acoustic has arrived.
