Powerful System

Acus is an Italian audio specialist that has many years experience of designing high-end amplifiers. Like many from the Acus range, the ForStrings 8 Amp offers a reliable amplifier solution in a portable, lightweight design. This powerful amp is equipped with an 8" woofer speaker, along with compression tweeter with an electronic crossover, powered by a 50 Watt power section.

Rugged Construction

The Acus One Forstrings 8 Amplifier provides a 200 Watt power output and premium sound quality all housed in a compact and portable plywood shell. At only 13 kg, the One Forstrings 8 amp offers a lightweight construction that can be easily transported between gigs or rehearsals. The unit also features a protective metal grille and carry handles, making it ideal for use on the road and live environments. Its unique metal grille is also vibration free, offering a clean sound when used at any volume. The handmade, natural wood speaker cabinet is designed to emphasise the minimal design aesthetic that Acus products deliver. The birch ply cabinet is finished with a protective textured coat for added durability, which is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. With its rugged plywood structure, the Acus One Forstrings 8 will endure a lifetime of professional usage.

A Full Host Of Control Options

Its stylish control panel is equipped with custom styled knobs, micro-metric and functional, along with four independent channels, two with dedicated mic or line inputs, gain, volume and three-band EQ and effects level, the third with a line input only but with the same facilities as channel 1 and 2 and the fourth designed for a stereo line source like MP3 player mobile phone. With four independently controllable channels, players can benefit from easily modifying the frequency levels without suppressing the original note. In addition to all of these features, the Acus One Forstrings 8 is also equipped with a global master volume, effects return, line out and a notch filter for controlling feedback. Players can also benefit from the choice of eight built-in digital effects with push button operation and LED for each.

Oneforstrings Range

The Oneforstrings range is designed primarily for acoustic instruments (more specifically acoustic and classical guitars). The amps are designed to boost volume levels while maintaining the rich, natural tone and resonance of the instrument. The speakers feature customised cabinets and highly reliable components, and are built for longevity. This range of amps can also be used as a mini PA system with even more options for live audio applications. Each unit in the range differs in the amount of power and channels they provide, tailored to meet your requirements.
