Acoustic/electric effects pedals

Filed Under : Gear

Posted By : Bobo | Comments : 2


For YoYo gigs (acoustic pop duo -plug!) I use either a Guild GAD 50 or, mainly now, a Martin DC16GTE into a Bose L1 PA. It's a bit flat and so I have been running it into the PA through a Roland microcube with acoustic setting, just a little bit of reverb (!) and a slight touch of chorus. That is all I want.However, it's a bit cumbersome.
I have been looking at various pedals via google; some don't have chorus and some are all singing/all dancing boxes which are more than I want or want to pay for!
Anyone got something to sell or can recommend a particular simple reasonably priced one? Fancied the Boss AD2 but no-one seems to have any in stock around this area and I won't buy anything without trying it first.
I would ask Mick Nash but I doubt he uses anything like that! He says no electronic effects in his promotions.

Speak to Richard Moss at Reidys in Blackburn, he was demo'ing Martin guitars yesterday through some effects, the sound was stunning. He's a real personable, helpfull chap.
