Bill's Conversational Musings

Boss AC-3 Acoustic Simulator

Here is another effects pedal that does some amazing things. It takes your electric guitar and makes it sound like a full-bodied acoustic.

With this box you can really make quick switches between that classic big acoustic to whatever amp sound you are using then back again.

"Standard" is good for those twangy solo leads. "Jumbo" is really good for those thick backing strums. "Enhanced" creates an almost river country type twang. Finally, "Piezo" generates a super resonance and attack to your sound.


For the cost, this pedal does a lot. I think the only option missing would be a nylon guitar sound option.

So, what do you think? Did I miss anything? Is any part unclear?
