Boss AC-3 Acoustic Simulator · Guitar Effect

The Boss AC-3 Acoustic Simulator gives electric guitarists an acoustic effect with a tap of the pedal.

How many times have you been onstage or in the studio with your electric guitar, and wished that you'd brought an acoustic along? Here's the solution, the BOSS AC-3 acoustic simulator pedal. This new Boss compact pedal uses COSM modelling to transform any electric guitar into a variety of beautiful acoustic guitars.

Derived from BOSS' AD-8, the AC-3 simulates the sound of an acoustic guitar with incredible precision. Four simulation modes are included in the Boss AC-3 pedal: Standard, Jumbo, Enhanced, and Piezo-equipped; the latter supplies the cut through the mix direct piezo sound. The AC-3 provides Top and Body controls which allow you to shape the characteristics of the four acoustic guitar models. Add depth and sweetness to the sound with the AC-3 pedal’s built in digital reverb. Two sets of outputs are provided, allowing you to connect the AC-3 to a standard guitar amp and to the input of a PA or a recorder.

Boss Compact
The Boss compact pedal series can be described justifiably as the most successful pedal design of all time. In 1977 the first compact pedal came onto the market and caused a sensation - power supply connection, noiseless MOSFET footswitch, check LED and a uniform, ultra stable housing - all these features have set bench marks for the effect device design. The compact pedal series is more relevant than ever and offers a wide range of equipment effects.

Over all impression
Value for money

Not as good as expected!

Flower Power on 28.11.2021

I was a bit disappointed about that pedal.
I must say that I own a few of the Boss’es pedals.
I thought that this one was as effective as the other
ones I had.

Well, it might be that I still have to find out how set
the pedal properly as well. Therefore consider this
evaluation as a first impression, what it really is anyway.

I have the feeling that the acoustic sound is not
faithfully achieved. It’s even not close. Seeking for the best possible settings, I managed to find something that I can live with, but it’s far away from
what was expecting.

But when I plug in my acoustic guitar, and I play it
over this pedal. The sound of my acoustic guitar becomes much better, richer more body……..and with the chorus pedal. The is just…….great.

Unfortunately I can’t recommend this pedal,
if someone is looking to get a decent acoustic sound
from an electric guitar…….because that’s not the case. For home practicing it’s ok.
