It's the UpShot cabinet from Acoustic Image!

We've been partners with Acoustic Image since the beginning; we've been carrying their groundbreaking, well-engineered, and giggable products since the first generation of the Contra amp almost 2 decades ago. Their unique cylindrical cabinets, downfiring woofers, and transparent amp designs have become a gold standard for acoustic amplification (and remained as one for quite some time), and we're proud to be associated with such a boutique-level product line. We've even helped with product development ideas and testing of prototypes over the years.

This new speaker from Acoustic Image is their tiniest yet! Outstanding for onstage self-monitoring, it's also great for small venue gigs. At under 6 inches tall, and only 11" in diameter, it's almost unbelievably tiny. And it's a high-wattage, full-sized speaker in there - but the whole shebang is under 12 lbs! It's a "real" speaker cabinet you can legitimately carry in a backpack!

In fact, that was sort of the genesis of the amp's design and creation. Storied New York bassist Harvie S is a partner player of Acoustic Image amps, and he specifically asked for a speaker that he could carry in a backpack. Rick, while skeptical at first, figured he'd give it a go -- he's not one to shy away from a challenge. Once he solved the technical issues with the resonance that such a powerful speaker in such a small cabinet can produce, he realized that the speaker actually sounds great; the same well-loved driver that is in their other popular cabinets sounds great in this tiny little cylinder, too!

So the folks at Acoustic Image have taken to calling the UpShot the "Harvie S Signature Model."

As the inspiration for this little guy, Harvie S has been testing a prototype in various venues in NYC and has concluded "The speaker is changing the whole way a bass player lives. I'm on my first gig with it and everyone loves the sound of it. I walked in just carried it like I was carrying a small briefcase. This thing is so great."

And after a gig at the Kitano in NYC, he sent this note: "I played a trio gig last night at the Kitano. I used the [UpShot] and everyone said it was the best bass sound they ever heard in that room. Most people thought that I didn't have an amp but they could hear the bass perfect(ly)."

He has shown the UpShot to guitar players and keyboard players and they all want one of their own.

We put one through its paces here at the shop, and it's impressive. The UpShot is designed to be placed on the floor, close by, so that the player can clearly hear his or her instrument. The omnidirectional nature of the sound resulting from the driver being close to the floor, allows the instrument to be clearly heard on the bandstand and throughout the club.

The cabinet works great with an equally tiny Clarus SL or Clarus model, and as an 8ohm cabinet, could also easily be used as an extension to your existing Acoustic Image combo; put your main amp out front for the audience, and have a new "drop" monitor for your instrument right in front of you!

We also played acoustic guitar through it, and it sounds spectacular for that as well. We didn't get a chance to play keys through it yet, but some of Harvie's friends have, and they've already placed their orders.

Package and Accessory Options!

Mounting Bracket

The current models of the Upshot and Clarus SL series amp heads include mount points for the new custom amp mount bracket. The bracket, shown at left, is compatible with ALL versions of the UpShot, but earlier versions may have to be modified to add the mounting insert. Acoustic Image (and Gollihur Music) has been shipping UpShots with the insert pre-installed for some time now, but if you were an early adopter, Acoustic Image will add the mounting point at no charge. You can contact them directly for information. They can also send you a kit to do it yourself, if you're handy.

The bracklet mounts on the rear of the cabinet, just over the input jack. A cutout in the bracket straddles the input connector for stable mounting.

At left, see the bracket mounted to the UpShot. The thumbscrew is "captive" to the bracket - you won't lose it! A Clarus SL series amp mounts to the bracket using a thumbscrew, or that thumbscrew can be removed and Velcro patches (included) can be used to mount a small amp that does not have the mounting point installed. Again, if you have an early Clarus SL/SL-R/SL-2, you can contact Acoustic Image to have the mount point installed on your amp.

Backpack

Harvie S said he wanted the speaker to fit in a backpack, so it was only natural that Acoustic Image would create a backpack for hauling it around. The backpack fits the UpShot, a Clarus SL/SL-R/SL-2 (or similar-sized tiny amp head) and even an amp mounting Bracket fits into a corner nicely. We offer several package deals with the backpack; the ultimate bundle offers a nice savings for an entire rig, but items can also be purchased separately.

Other amps in the backpack? The backpack is specially made to fit the Upshot and the Clarus SL sized head, which is 7.2" x 7.4" x 2.1". The "regular" sized Clarus does NOT fit into the opening provided for the Clarus SL - however, several users have worked out that you can place the Clarus amp on top of the Upshot (when the bag is flat on its back) and zip the closure around the two of them, and that securely holds both the cabinet and the Clarus. You can use the spot normally occupied for the SL for cables, a pedal, etc.

Alternate Mounting Bracket

If you don't want to mount the bracket to the amp, Acoustic Image suggests a product that we've already carried for years - the Raxxess AR-5 accessory riser - on top of a small desk mic stand. As shown to the left, it makes for a cool way to put the amp right at your fingertips. (Of course, you could even use a full size mic stand so you don't have to bend over - that's up to you!)

You can find details on the AR-5 in our "related products," below, and purchase it there, or in the "accessories" drop down menu at the top of this page. Purchased from this page, it includes the folding mic stand (including a carry bag and mic clip) as shown to the right!
