How many times have you been onstage or in the studio with your electric guitar and wished that you'd brought an acoustic along? For musicians who travel light, hauling an extra guitar to the gig isn't always the most attractive option. Here's the solution: the BOSS AC-3 acoustic simulator! This new-generation compact pedal employs COSM modeling technology to transform any electric guitar into a variety of beautiful acoustic guitars.

BOSS AC-3 Acoustic Simulator at a Glance:

  • Advanced modeling for authentic acoustic guitar sounds
  • Fine-tune controls to shape the acoustic sound you want
  • Reverb included
  • Versatile output paths

Advanced modeling for authentic acoustic guitar sounds

BOSS's COSM Acoustic-Modeling technology is beautifully showcased in the small but powerful AC-3, which simulates an acoustic guitar much more precisely and realistically than previous technology allowed. Derived from BOSS's top-of-the-line AD-8, the AC-3 simulates the sound of an acoustic guitar with incredible precision. Four simulation modes are provided: Standard, Jumbo, Enhanced, and Piezo-equipped; the latter supplies that famous cut-through-the-mix direct piezo sound. Previous compact acoustic-guitar modeling-pedals were promising, but now the bar has been raised with AC-3.

Fine-tune controls to shape the acoustic sound you want

The AC-3 provides Top and Body controls which allow you to shape the characteristics of the four acoustic models. Create the perfect acoustic-guitar sound quickly and easily with simple knob twists.

Reverb included

Add depth and sweetness to the sound with the AC-3's built-in digital reverb. It's like getting two pedals in one!

Versatile output paths

Two sets of outputs are provided, allowing you to connect the AC-3 to a standard guitar amp, a direct input device such as a PA, or a recorder.

BOSS guitar pedals: rugged, reliable, more than 10,000,000 sold

More than 10,000,000 BOSS guitar and bass effects pedals have been sold to players worldwide, including such top players as Yngie Malmsteen, Dave Navarro, John Petrucci, Marty Friedman, Steve Vai, and Joe Satriani. You've also no doubt heard BOSS pedals recorded and onstage beneath the feet of bands of all genres, including Muse, The Killers, and Silversun Pickups. The reason for the success is clear: not only do BOSS effects pedals sound great - but they're also built like tanks and designed with serious use in mind. Each BOSS pedal is housed in a stomp-ready metal box and features a rubberized stomp area and base, to help safeguard against slipping. So, whether you're a fresh-out-of-the-gate beginner, an axe-veteran designing your dream pedalboard, or anywhere in between, you can depend on BOSS's proven line of pedals to craft your tone.
