Taylor Circa 74 AV150-10 150-Watt Acoustic Amplifier - Mahogany


Designed by Bob Taylor and a handpicked team, this new two-channel acoustic/vocal amp combines warm sound, simple controls and elegant woodworking craftsmanship.

Beautiful. Musical. Simple.

What started as a fun side project for Taylor Guitars co-founder Bob Taylor and two other tone-and gear-obsessed Taylor guitar nerds grew into Circa 74, an all-new, 2-in-1 acoustic/vocal amplifier designed to help musicians sound their best in any environment.

The idea: Build a great-sounding acoustic guitar amp you can also sing through. The guiding design thoughts: Make it compatible with a wide range of acoustic guitar pickups and playing environments. Make it practical and easy to use, without over-engineering it with too many controls or effects. Make the cabinet from an acoustic guitar tonewood to bring an extra warm, smooth sonic character to the amplified tone. Give it the elegant aesthetic appeal of a finely crafted piece of furniture. And add Bluetooth connectivity to stream music and play or sing along.

Working on the project reminded Bob of the creative, freewheeling spirit of a startup, like the earliest days of Taylor Guitars, circa ’74 — which gave birth to the name.

Ultimately, the group’s labor of love produced an amp that serves up an ear-pleasing range of acoustic sounds and brings out the very best in musicians looking to be heard.
