Sounds great but needs an effects loop
IanIreland, 22.10.2018
I bought this unit to save me from having to carry my marshall acoustic amp to gigs to DI out to the PA system. I use a Martin DC16GTE so set the input to dreadnought and the output to D45 and it sounds amazing through any PA systems I have connected to. The only issue I have is that I also use a loop pedal which has to be placed after the AC3 so I lose the DI out option which is a shame. I really think this unit needs an effects loop option.

The different guitar sounds are great and give a very authentic acoustic sound.

The effects are good but not really suitable for live performance as there are no presets but these could come in useful when recording. I really only use the reverb and the EQ, both of which are great. There is also a compressor which works really well. I also leave the anti feedback option on and so far have had no feedback issues.

The tuner is very accurate, I'll be selling on my Boss TU-3 as this has now become surplus to requirements.

I was originally looking for a boost pedal to give me boost for fingerpicking and solos when I came across this unit. This gives me EQ, effects, a tuner and a boost and also an authentic acoustic sound. The build quality is also great, its very well built and feels like it will last forever.

Would definitely be 5 stars if it had an effects loop!
