The BOSS AD-2 Acoustic Preamp pedal is a simple and convenient way to elicit genuine and woody tones from your acoustic-electric instrument’s pickup system, whether live or recorded. Simply set the Acoustic Resonance control to the desired level, and you’ll notice a gain in warmth and depth that many pickup systems can’t create on their own.
The BOSS AD-2 Acoustic Preamp has an Acoustic Resonance effect that mimics the unique tone characteristics of an unplugged acoustic guitar. A notch filter for feedback reduction, a balanced DI output, and other stage requirements are also included.
The quacky tone and harsh response of many acoustic-electric pickup systems are easily eliminated by the BOSS AD-2 Acoustic Preamp pedal. As you adjust the Acoustic Resonance control, you’ll hear BOSS’s cutting-edge digital processing get to work evaluating the input signal from your guitar and responding much like an acoustic guitar would without an amplifier.
When creating the AD-2, BOSS gave special consideration to controlling feedback. On the pedal’s face, there is a convenient knob titled Notch that is just as easy to use as the Resonance feature. Just begin to perform. Simply turn the Notch control until feedback stops appearing when it starts to rear its ugly head. Both the ease and effectiveness of it are unmatched.
