My Guitar has never sounded sweeter

09.02.2017
Ok, so I have to admit that adding pedals to my set up is new to me.
I play an Acoustic Takamine - while unplugged it sounds fabulous, but i felt like I was not getting enough from it live.
I have used the AD-2, followed by the boss GE-3 EQ pedal a few times now and the overall sound is so much warmer than it ever has been.
Again, not being a pedal expert, I found that putting the boss AD-2 before the EQ pedal worked very well, but for whatever reason, if I reversed this order I got an unwanted slight distorted sound.
Price wise, as is often the case with Thomann, I found that no shop locally could match the price.
The pedal, along with other items I ordered arrived in the usual timely fashion from Thomann.
Note that the Boss AD-2 does NOT come with a power supply (it is unfortunate that this is not included), although it can run on a 9volt battery.
So far so good, I'm happy with my purchase.
looking forward to playing with it a little more and getting the best sound possible from my set up.
Would certainly recommend.

Finally done

03.04.2017
I play with my guitars, mainly a PRS Angelus and an Ovation 2078, directly into the desk. The sound was quite right. Compared to professional recordings missing only a trifle - I thought at least so far. What a mistake! (See below).

I have ordered the recently published BOSS AD-2 nevertheless times for test purposes. This is not a risk thanks to the return possibility at Thomann.

The fact that we can hear a difference in sound through the line-out directly into the console, without any problem with the respective pedal settings, has never been experienced in this clarity. The judgment of my band colleagues and me to the AD-2 - simply GENIAL.

Warm and defined, at the same time crystal clear in the heights, round and resolved both in the single notes, as well as in chords.

My guitars sound like I always wanted to hear them. Just as I love it from professional recordings and so far thought, you get only in the studio.
