Well - fits already

DocR, 11.01.2012
My hope was that the Roland developers have already outdone the physics already but the was nevertheless somewhat disappointed.

In principle the AC-3 works already and I will also use it with gigs with the usual 2 pieces for acoustic guitars but you have to pay attention to some things that the other evaluators have already discussed.

- I had better results with guitars with singlecoil pickups than with humbuckers
- The AC-3 works at least at the front of the effect chain, but this can be individually different. I hang the AC-3 over a DI box to the mixer, the level is neat, so a small passive DI box off
- Noises are mercilessly transmitted with - was already determined by another evaluator
- Somehow, all sounds sound "artificial" - which they are. Which of the four possible types of guitars you use and how much "body" you admit must be tried out, which depends also certainly on the PA and the monitor system. In the interplay with the band, you can also use settings that are not played on your own, but this is usually the case with guitars. In turn, many acoustic guitars with pickups on the PA sound not necessarily great.

Conclusion:
I would have expected something more, the numerous videos on the Internet exaggerated (once again) something. The BOSS AC-3 can not replace an acoustic guitar for an "unplugged" band, especially as an alternative to the towing of another guitar, the problems with feedback, etc.

Completely ok for the usual application

Frank165, 07.09.2011
Good news first:

If you want to have an acoustic sound for a few songs or assignments in the practice room or at the gig, without wanting to take an acoustic (and the usual problems with the acceptance ...) has a good solution. How does it sound? Not better and not worse than piezo pickups on a solidbody and the classic ovation sound quite similar. (Alex Lifeson of Rush plays his acoustic parts on the live album "Different stages" with a piezo on a solidbody.) Similar sounds are possible here A "thin" pickup with less output and low bass parts works better than a hot humbucker, But it also delivers acceptable results: 100% after a jumbo or dreadnaught it does not sound 80% but the acoustic impression is well communicated and it sounds more authentic than simply the pickings or strummings in the clean channel with the normal electric play The controls have to be fumbled, too much Treble brings a lot of noise, too much Hall destroys the acoustic impression, too much volume brings out the digital character too much, no more effects to use even the most discreet chorus pushes the sound mercilessly Really longer plug-in in the set vollakustisch, should rather the agony of the Einmessens, feedback elimination, etc. endure and a real acoustic decrease.

For the ballad between, the muted chorus, the pickled intro, the acoustic final chord, the acoustically doubled 2nd guitar, the box here is an excellent solution!
