The AC-2 is a newer pedal from BOSS, designed to simulate the sound of a miked acoustic or acoustic-electric guitar. It has a surprisingly good sound, given what it's trying to do. Hand slides, bumps, and all the familiar acoustic sounds shine through with this pedal.
This pedal has four modes of operation:
- Standard: Simulates a standard medium body acoustic.
- Jumbo: Simulates a large body acoustic.
- Enhance: Simulates a standard body guitar, but with enhanced equalization on the highs and lows.
- Piezo: Simulates the piezo-electric pickup sound found in most acoustic-electrics.
While this pedal will not completely replace the need for an acoustic guitar, it does a good job for quick passages or substitutions during a song. This effect works best with single-coil pickups, as some humbuckers tend to overload the inputs a bit, causing a scratchy sound.
