A Decent Substitute

By TheRaygun

Comments about Boss AC-2 Acoustic Simulator Pedal:

The Boss AC-2 is a good pedal if you are in need of an acoustic sound but can't carry around a second guitar. It defintely transforms the sound of an electric guitar, but it doesn't allow for the same rich tone that comes from a real acoustic. If you are out gigging, this pedal can be very handy. There is a knob to select the type of guitar to emulate and there are distinct differences in each tone. I primarily use the Jumbo setting as it sounds the fullest to me.

Comments about Boss AC-2 Acoustic Simulator Pedal:

I got one of these in a trade earlier this year and always wanted to give one a try. I wouldn't use one live, when I added my Boss EQ20 after it, it sounded pretty convincing. For some reason, it doesn't have much volume, you have to max out the volume control in order for it to come close to the same volume of you guitar signal. I also tried this with a guitar equipped with piezo... big difference! The only other acoustic simulator I've tried was the acoustic simulator on a Korg AX3000G, which I thought was actually better than the AC2. Due to the AC's lack of volume, when you max the volume you're going to get some unwanted noise.


A Niche Pedal

Comments about Boss AC-2 Acoustic Simulator Pedal:

This pedal does a believable job of acoustic simulation and it is very adjustable by the time you factor in the different pickups you use on your guitar. But it's an acoustic tone that sounds most believable when it's a part of an ensemble, not on it's own. It's cool how you can send the acoustic signal to the P.A. and the electric signal to your amp. That way you can blaze away on a solo through your amp and with a stomp be playing acoustic through the P.A. For this reason it works well if you're in a cover band playing a variety of tunes and you need to cover many bases with one guitar. If you don't fit into this category, I wouldn't think you'd care for it. It is NOT a good substitute for an acoustic guitar in general. Don't buy the AC-2 thinking it's as good as an acoustic. It isn't. And I can't imagine anyone taking it into the studio. Its' a decent product if you fit the niche. If you don't, it's pretty useless.


Don't expect to much..

Comments about Boss AC-2 Acoustic Simulator Pedal:

Acoustic sounds out of your electric guitar? Donit expect this box to stand up to a pricey Martin D-50 or a Gibson Jumbo but the Boss AC-2 can certainly deliver up some fairly convincing electro-acoustic sounds. This unit fulfills itis advertised purpose but only when used in conjunction with single coil pickups, a bright clean amp, and perhaps a touch of chorus. For those of you who could care less about creating faux-acoustic sounds, this box is capable of taking the timid palette of your clean guitar into twisted tonal territories! Our only complaint was the output section was a little undernourished and cranking it yielded a bit of unwanted hiss. Aside from that one gripe, this is one solid solution for players who are tired of hauling an extra guitar to gigs, fighting acoustic feedback onstage, or switching between guitars during the set.


Its okay

Comments about Boss AC-2 Acoustic Simulator Pedal:

Boss AC-2 Acoustic Simulator Pedal. Its okay if you want something to give your electric a acoustic-ish sound. It will, and does sound like a cheap acoustic pickup no mater what electric guitar or amp you run it with. Of course I am a tone freak... I play taylor acoustics, Gibson, Paul Reed Smith & Fender Electrics. I use vintage Marshall and Fender amplifiers. If you want something to get you by then get it but if you want something that is top shell tone then it depends on the application but for the most part it will disappoint you.

Comments about Boss AC-2 Acoustic Simulator Pedal:

I bought one of these, I used it for a while, and it sounded alright...then I bought my Ibanez RG1820 Prestige, which is loaded with LR Baggs' piezo pickups, and it's impecable...if you want a good acoustic like sound out of your electric, buy one that ha a piezo pickup in it, i.e. the Ibanez RG1820, or a Musicman Petrucci.
