Experiment! Any amplifier or PA system with an instrument-level input will work. Do not connect Elvari to amplifiers that are made specifically for electric guitar as they usually cannot reproduce Elvari’s output signal correctly. A full-range amplifier for acoustic instruments is required to give Elvari’s tone justice. We have found that the Boss AC-22LX on the “AB” (Air Feel) setting sounds great and surprisingly loud. This affordable amp weighs only 8 lb & 14 oz (4 kg) and can be battery-powered. It also has stereo line outs so that you can connect directly to other amplifiers or a mixer when you play at larger venues.
Another option is the Roland Mobile Cube. It doesn’t provide as much amplification as the Boss, but it offers a very nice sound quality and works excellently in smaller settings. It also has some effects. It’s a very cost-effective and easily transportable alternative (weighs only 5 lb & 9 oz, or 2.5 kg).
