Very small and light with superb sound amplification, 100% reliable after two years of use (about 300 gigs), can drive two cabinets via the two Speakon-style speaker outputs and patch into sound systems via the "Send" of the effects loop. Dual voltage selectivity accommodates the musician who tours the world.


Haven't discovered any weaknesses. The SL does exactly what it is advertised to do. No frills, bells or whistles., it simply delivers perfect sound amplification at all volumes. Perhaps, 250w@4ohms is insufficient power for some players. I understand that the newest model has bumped its muscle to 300w@4ohms. If that's not enough for you, maybe there's a Walter Woods Ultra in your future at about three times the cost of this AI-SL.

The Acoustic Image Clarus-SL is a super compact and transportable (4 pounds) single channel bass amplifier head with active EQ pots for lows, mids, hi's and "Bright". Other than hi-and lo inputs and dual voltage capability, its only "feature" is an effects loop, the "Send" of which I use occasionally to patch into a PA system. It produces an utterly clean, transparent sound, runs absolutely quietly and has ample power for my acoustic upright bass, driving my 8 ohm cabinet with 125w. The SL is a reliable, professional grade unit that delivers the goods.

Customer Service

I have contacted Acoustic Image on two occasions by phone with questions. Both times, the person who picked-upwas the company owner, an engineer, who answered my questions in detail and thanked me for calling.
