The Tanglewood T6 is a 60-watt, two channel combo with true digital reference effects which can be used for instrument and voice and comes complete with a carry bag, A 35mm recessed speaker pole socket and inputs and outputs for every professional application.

Channel One features a Gain control plus Bass, Middle and Treble EQ as well as a High /Low selector for different guitar pre-amps, a Clip indicator and a Contour button with its own indicator which works as a bright control.

Channel Two features a combo (XLR/jack) balanced input selectable for Line or Mic in addition to Gain, Bass and Treble EQ and a Clip indicator. The effects section includes a Mode selector, offering Hall or Plate Reverb plus Chorus/Room reverb and Delay. On-board effects can be panned to either or both channels with the Eff. Pan, which can also be used in conjunction with the effect Level knob to add in an external effect. Lastly, there’s an overall Master Volume control. On the rear panel, there’s a Footswitch input to turn the effects on or off, a Headphone output, Line Out, balanced XLR DI-OUT, Send and Return sockets for the effects loop and an MP3 mini-jack and AUX In stereo phono input.



The T6 is very compact and lightweight and there’s enough protection afforded by the rugged carry bag for even the roughest of handling. Cables and spares can also be stored, so with guitar in one hand and the T6 in the other, any solo guitarist/singer is fully equipped for that bar gig or open mic evening.

Cables and spares can also be stored, so with guitar in one hand and the T6 in the other, any solo guitarist/singer is fully equipped for that bar gig or open mic evening. My first impressions on plugging in an acoustic guitar is that the T6 is loud, and that whatever speaker Tanglewood has used, it’s more than up to the job of handling not only the volume and dynamics produced by hard playing, but the extended top end that the Contour button generates. By tweaking Channel One’s Middle control and Contour and the EQ on the guitar’s pre-amp, it’s possible to obtain a sparklingly clean acoustic tone that works for strummed chords or fingerpicking. Every note is distinct and gleaming and the T6 responds to whatever you throw at it with a token shrug and you’d be more than confident of taking this unassuming black box on stage at any gig or theatre.

Channel Two offers the opportunity to plug in a dynamic microphone and turn the T6 into a mini PA system. Again, the amp handles a vocal microphone with aplomb and with the facility to pan the effects, you don’t have to have the same amount of effect on guitar and voice. You cannot mix say, the Hall reverb and the Chorus effect, but with the effects loop, there is a way of obtaining mixed effects if that’s the way you work. The effects are good quality, uncluttered and with no discernible digital background hiss.

Overall, the Tanglewood T6 is really smooth and classy sounding – with plenty of volume in reserve should you need it – as well as being a remarkably feature-laden product considering its price point. Everything on board the T6 is dedicated to getting the best out of an acoustic guitar, and it has the versatility and adaptability to be employed in all sorts of different musical situations. Great effort, and proof that with the right focus and resources, it is possible to produce a top quality acoustic guitar amplifier that everyone can afford. Recommended.
