Tanglewood really seem to have cracked the affordable acoustic amp with the T6. It's perfect for the banjo.
Norwich, Norfolk, UK (PRWEB UK) 27 March 2012
Banjos Direct, the UK-based banjo specialist retailer at the forefront of the renaissance of banjo playing, has announced it is stocking the exciting new Tanglewood T6. The T6 sets a new standard in affordable acoustic amplifiers and is an ideal banjo amplifier, says Banjos Direct founder Simon Middleton.
Amplification is a subject close to the heart of all banjo players who perform live. Banjos pickups and specialist microphones have got better and better in recent years, but it has been difficult to find amps suitable for banjos which combine excellent performance with affordability.
"Tanglewood really seem to have cracked the affordable acoustic amp with the T6," says Banjos Direct founder and CEO, Simon Middleton.
"There are a number of terrific acoustic amps around the £1,000 mark, but the T6 is pretty remarkable for its sub-£400 price. It's clean, powerful, accurate and sweet, with acoustic guitars, banjos and mandolins."
The media seem to agree. Acoustic magazine gave the T6 five stars in every category, and described it as "spectacular".
Middleton added: "For banjoists looking for a superb quality banjo amplifier that doesn't cost more than their banjo the T6 is pretty irresistible, whether combined with piezo pickups, humbuckers, or instrument microphones."
At Banjos Direct the Tanglewood T6 costs £359.95
The Tanglewood T6 is a high quality 60 watt acoustic amplifier with true digital reference effects and has inputs and outputs for every professional application. Perfect for banjo, banjitar, mandolin, guitar and vocal too. The ideal singer-songwriter mini-PA in one unit, or a fabulous on-stage control centre and monitor for band instrumentalists. The T6 has been critically acclaimed everywhere including receiving an unprecedented full set of 5 star ratings in Acoustic magazine.
