Boss Ad 10

Rugodix, 13.02.2018
The new AD 10 comes with new features comparing with the old AD 8: a CHORUS, a DELAY and COMPRESSOR! (they can be used simultaneously). Besides, the Body Resonance is very effective in restoring the soul of a piezzo equipped guitar.The device is very powerful: 10 memories, 2 inputs for 2 sources (2 guitars, for instance), witch can be set individually (sensitivity, EQ). Add the possibility of sending to FOH a wet or dry signal, a USB output, the good sound, notch control, noise gate, tuner, even a basic looper, and you have a winner of the moment.

Acoustical preamp with everything you need ...

Mirko S. aus L., 27.03.2018
... or even more than you need.

I waited a long time for the announced AD-10 and probably got one of the first from Thomann in September 2017.
The list of features, presets, effects, looper, FX loop, two entrances, etc., made me want to pre-order good pieces at that time.
The preamp actually does everything the ambitious acoustic guitarist expects. Contrary to some opinion, I do not think that the device makes the sound of the guitar worse, but I agree that the EQ should be activated in any case. Otherwise it sounds flat.
The effects are always available in three variants (green, orange, red). For example, this changes the type of reverb effect (Small Room, Room, Hall).
You can save your settings in presets and retrieve them accordingly or use the active setting in Manual Mode and switch on Delay and Boost with the button.

Through a Boss FS-6 I added Tap Tempo and extended the Looper. It is a pity that you only have one CTL / EXP connection. I would have liked to add an expression pedal, but I had to choose between FS-6 or Exp.

Now for the reason why I no longer have the AD-10. That is also purely subjective. The box can do a hell of a lot and so much more than I need. Over the last few months, I have found time and again that I like to have it easier. I need to be able to see at a glance where the pots are and want to be able to change the values ??quickly. I just want to be able to turn effects on and off without first crafting 10 presets and then find out at the gig that spontaneously for 4 bars a chorus would fit, but unfortunately I did not consider it in the preset. So I really needed an old school pedalboard with individual effects, without wanting to build a pedalboard. That's why I switched to the T-Rex Soulmate Acoustic at the end. This offers a lot less features than the Boss AD-10, then stupidly costs a lot more, but for me personally it was the more practical solution.

All in all, with the Boss AD-10, you get a great, happy-to-be-happy acoustic guitarist package, if you can make friends with the somewhat nested controls and presets ... and all that at an unbeatable price / performance ratio.
