|For musicians who need an amplifier that works for both acoustic and
electric instruments, the Henriksen Amplifiers Tweety™ is a simple,
practical, and inexpensive way to get a good sound from acoustic
instruments using a standard amplifier.
The desired tone for flattop and nylon string guitar players
requires a speaker system that responds to higher frequency overtones
so that the bright and crisp tones those guitars produce acoustically
is properly reproduced. Standard guitar amplifiers do not typically
reproduce those high frequency tones very well, and "acoustic"
amplifiers typically sound too thin and weak for standard electric
guitars. Musicians are left to find one amp that is a compromise in
tone for both electric and acoustic guitar, or to spend hundreds, even
thousands of dollars on a separate amp for their acoustic guitars.
For about the price of a stompbox, Tweety allows a musician to have
a warm, rich sounding amplifier that will also bring out the brilliant
highs of flattop acoustic guitars. A musician simply plugs the Tweety
into the extension speaker jack of their amplifier, and they now have
the extended range needed to properly amplify an acoustic instrument.
We have also included a volume control to adjust the overall amount of
high frequencies reproduced. The Tweety has two parallel in/out jacks
for daisy-chaining, and a microphone mount so it can be placed anywhere in a room, creating a wide field
effect which adds to the natural acoustic sound of an instrument.
Tweety has a built in crossover (2.5 kHz), two parallel in/out
jacks and a level control knob. The Tweety is available now for a retail
price of $139.
