Before you hit the stage for your acoustic gig, don't forget your Zoom AC-3 Acoustic Creator. This enhanced direct box takes your sound to the next level by restoring the tone that's lost through your acoustic guitar's pickup. Choose from 16 Source Guitar presets tailored to your specific instrument, then refine your sound further with 15 Target Guitar presets matched to your guitar's exact model. Finalize your sound with a 3-band EQ and single-knob compressor, then polish it to perfection with nine reverb, delay, and chorus effects. Complete with a 9dB boost, anti-feedback control, stereo outputs, and a built-in tuner, the AC-3 is everything its little brother, the AC-2, is and more.
Tonal enhancement that's tailored to your exact guitar
Adapting the AC-3 to your specific instrument is easy. First, select one of 16 Source Guitar presets like Dreadnought, Jumbo, or Parlor, then choose whether you have a piezo or magnetic pickup. After that, select one of the 15 Target Guitar presets like D-Eighteen, Humming Bird, or J-Forty Five. That's it — you're dialed in! You're ready to experience a lush, resonant sound that's faithful to your guitar's original tone. Beyond that, the AC-3 takes all of the guesswork out of gain-staging — its Volume control affects input gain and output level simultaneously.
