After months of shopping and comparing and reading and watching youtube videos, I finally found an acoustic amp that fit my needs. It's small, lightweight, cheap, 2 channels, and sounds pretty doggone good. Did I mention cheap?

Ironically, I didn't find a single sound clip or video, so I bought it blind. I was pleasantly surprised.

Meet the Peavey Ecoustic 208.

Loos like a great amp.
I need to pick up something like that that's has a notch feature to eliminate feed back issues.

Yeah well I'm loaded. Kidding. I like how light and cheap it is. Has some good features. Just got a raise at work too. Good stuff. From what I understand, the expression system doesn't have too many feedback issues. Dunno. We'll see

"The ES is not, however, subject to the usual feedback problems you might encounter when playing into a microphone. The system is uniquely suited to work at high sound pressure levels (SPLs), resisting feedback even at high volume levels. If you are accustomed to using a soundhole plug to prevent feedback, it should not be necessary to use one with the ES."

From the Taylor website. Who knows if it's true. Laughing

I have an Ibanez Montage with a Piezo and magnetic pickups and I have to use the 2 notch filters on the guitars or it will feedback. I am very happy that the guitar has them built in or I would have to get something to stop the feedback.

What are you playing it through, a Marshall stack? Laughing

That expression system sounds amazing. I bought my Taylor a few months before it came out and was a bit annoyed with myself!

My 214e has the ES-T and sounds pretty good through the Peavey, as does my Ibanez crossover.

This is exactly the amp I was looking for. Cool
