Based on the original Compact 60, the Compact-TE features Australian aboriginal artwork and his signature with the coveted “CGP” (Certified Guitar Player) certification, bestowed upon Tommy by Chet Atkins himself, carved into the sides of the cabinet. The Compact-TE further diverges from the original Compact 60 by offering its onboard effects through to the DI-Out, and by replacing the onboard Delay effect with a replica of Tommy’s original Alesis Midiverb 2 Delay/Reverb effect that has defined his sound all these years.

From Guitar Player Magazine review:
I appreciated having only a few practical effects with simple controls, and the way they are incorporated into the balanced output’s signal ensures you get a fully realized tone straight into the P.A. In fact, you could essentially look at the Compact 60/3 TE as a fantastic direct box and small stage monitor with effects. “When I’m doing in-store appearances, live radio shows, or workshops, I simply turn up my amp, take a direct line out, and the sound is just right with the EQ set flat,” says Emmanuel. “And in concert, this amp coupled with AER’s Pocket Tools preamp is a powerful combination when you send both signals into the P.A.”
Bottom line: AER’s Compact 60/3 Tommy Emmanuel Signature amp is a worthy performance rig that delivers everything discerning acoustic players need in a lightweight and ergonomically designed package.
