It has proven to be the all-round, small, powerful and yet simple to use complete solution for stage, studio and home use that works up to the highest demands of musicians of all styles. Intended for the Singer – Songwriter its two channels allow superb reproduction of voice and instrument and with its size – smiled at in the beginning – being its second strongest side it has become the standard solution – „…the amp of choice“ – for those musicians who value sound, simplicity, reliability and independence to assign the tone they want to be heard in. The compact 60 has found many friends around the world and it is used with nearly all instruments, acoustic as well as electric, in many kinds of applications.

1. Sensitivity

Input sensitivities refer to 50 W into 4 ohm, full gain and master settings,

neutral tone control settings, and 1 kHz sine-wave test signal.

2. Noise and dynamic range

Equivalent input noise voltages are typical values obtained by measuring

noise voltage at speaker output and dividing by the voltage gain of the

amplifier for white noise. Full gain and master settings, neutral tone

control settings, input shorted, measuring bandwidth 20 Hz – 20 kHz.

Dynamic range of power amplifier: Ratio of between output signal at

limiter threshold to A-weighted output noise with master in zero


3. Output levels

Output levels refer to 50 mV / 1 kHz sine-wave test signal at channel 1

input, full gain and master settings, neutral tone control settings, send

fully clockwise.

4. Options

Gain of channel 2 in mic mode can be decreased by 4.6 dB by an internal


48 V phantom power can be deactivated by an internal jumper.

9 V phantom power for channel 1 can be applied by an internal jumper

to the “ring” terminal of the input jack. Caution: Use this option with

care. Read the operating instructions.
