Acoustic Simulator

For the first time BOSS presents the advanced COSM modeling technology in a compact pedal. The AC-3 is based on the top model BOSS AD-8 and can reproduce the typical sound of an acoustic guitar thanks to the latest simulation technology with an incredible perfection. Four simulation modes are available: Standard, Jumbo, Enhanced, and Piezo-equipped - the latter simulates the typical percussive piezo direct sound. Even if the previous model AC-2 would be equipped with analog technology, the new AC-3 sets the bar of the digital technology a great piece up.

  • Roland Acoustic Guitar Modeling of VG-88 and AD-8 for the first time in a compact pedal
  • Four simulation modes: Standard, Jumbo, Enhanced, and Piezo-Equipped
  • Top and Body knobs for fine adjustment of the modeled body resonances
  • Built-in reverb, optimized for acoustic-guitar simulation
  • Display CHECK (also serves as a battery level indicator)
  • Connections IN, G.OUT, LINE OUT, power supply (DC 9V)
  • Power Supply DC 9 V: Dry cell battery (6F22 / 9 V), AC Adaptor (PSA-series, optional)
  • Dimensions 70 (W) x 125 (D) x 55 (H) mm
  • Weight 440 g

I play in an acoustic duo and decided to try this with my Strat in leiu of my acoustic guitar with a Fishman soundhole pickup. Amazing, the AC-3 and Strat sound more "acoustic" than the real acoustic guitar. People do a double take when they see me playing the Strat, getting that full lush acoustic tone. I love it!! And the bonus is that leads are soo much easier to play on the Strat than on the acoustic!! I've been using it about a month now. Awesome!! It should be noted however that there is a slight hiss when playing through the AC-3 which can be quite annoying.

Nice sounds very effective through a PA or acoustic amplifier. I purchased mine to avoid having to carry an extra guitar around but would only recomend you use them through a pa or acoustic amp as electric guitar speakers in my opinion don't do this pedal any favours. Really good for recording and alot cheaper than buying a nice acoustic guitar!
