Product Description

Here's what Zoom say about the AC-2 Acoustic Guitar FX Pedal:

Amplify your acoustic sound with the Zoom AC-2 Acoustic Creator. The AC-2 is a DI (direct box) that encompasses all you need to deliver natural guitar tone on stage or in the studio. The AC-2 automatically restores tone lost through acoustic pickups, so your sound is always lush, resonant, and faithful to the instrument you have in hand.

Restore Your Acoustic Tone

With 16 source guitar presets, the AC-2 recovers the sonic characteristics of a variety of guitar types and body shapes. You can choose from dreadnought, upright bass, nylon strings, 12 string, and more.

Simply select your guitar of choice, then choose piezo or magnetic pickup. From there, the AC-2 is ready to reproduce and amplify your guitar’s tone with complete accuracy.

Essential DI Features

The AC-2 features a high-quality preamp which boosts your signal and helps restore your true acoustic sound. Add its natural-sounding reverb to increase your acoustic’s depth and width, and round out your desired tone with easy 3-band EQ adjustments.

Volume Control

The AC-2's Volume knob automatically controls the preamp’s input gain and output level, taking the guesswork out of adjusting sound levels to match. It’s all you need to make volume control and setup simple when you’re playing live on stage.

Cut Feedback Automatically

The AC-2 is also equipped with an anti-feedback button that automatically locates and eliminates problem frequencies —an essential for live performances.

Balanced In All The Right Places

The AC-2’s balanced XLR output (with ground/lift and pre/post control) allows you to easily connect to any PA mixing board or studio console. It also includes two ¼” outputs for mono or stereo connection to amps, headphones, or audio interfaces.

Tune on the Spot

The AC-2’s built-in tuner with its large LED meter lets you easily see when you’re in tune.

The Unique Sound of a 12 String

There’s no mistaking the beautiful, shimmering sound of a 12 string guitar. With the AC-2, your guitar will retain its natural, chorus-filled tone whenever you're on stage.

Up to 9 dB of Additional Gain

You can also add 9 dB of gain with the tap of your foot using the AC-2's boost function, allowing you to switch from strumming to finger-picking without ever losing a note.

Three Ways to Power Up

Since the AC-2 is designed to enhance your acoustic performances in all environments, it offers a variety of power options. Two AA batteries provide up to three hours of continuous power. Alternatively, you can use the Zoom AD-16 AC adapter for power, or the micro USB port to bus power the AC-2 via your computer.

Very effective acoustic pedal- improved the piezo sound of my Takemine a lot.

Mr Toby Gilbertson21st Dec 2023

Having looked around for a gigging DI with tuner and battery power, there are not many options (certainly not affordable). A couple of the others in my local Uke jam use these already and they are tough as anything out on the road. With the recent price offer (and some Andertons loyalty points, it became a no-brainer. Good sound, nice features and the anti-feedback automation is excellent.

Mr Adrian Holland23rd Sep 2022

This pedal may be a little expensive, but it gives a lot of band for your buck. The shaping for the different guitar sounds is very good and there are so many on offer to choose from, yet the instruction manual outlines the most suitable for your instrument. I barely needed to use the bass, middle, treble eq for my acoustic guitar (Martin OMCX budget range), as the professionals have done it for you. I love the reverb effect and prefer it to be no more than 1/4 up, as it is quite noticeable. I love that it cuts the signal, which is one of the reasons I bought it. The DI is also excellent, as is the tuner.

This pedal does what I needed it to do. It has brought the sound of my ibanez fretless bass close to upright bass sound. It's on the expensive side, but I do like the tuner and it mutes the output, and the DI out If I were only playing my semi acoustic bass then this would probably be the only pedal I would need. I have not tried a guitar through it yet. I use the eq flat and the upright bass setting fills out the sound beautifully
