Advanced Tone Tools For Serious Acoustic Guitar Players

Anyone who plays an amplified acoustic guitar on stage knows what a challenge it is to get a sound that’s as inspiring as playing the instrument acoustically. The AD-10 is your solution to this age-old problem, offering advanced sound tools that enable you to achieve rich, natural acoustic tones every time you perform.

At its core, the AD-10 is a fully featured, dual-channel acoustic preamp / DI pedal with premium audio quality, deep sound-shaping options, and flexible connectivity. On top of that, ambience, chorus, and delay effects are built in, eliminating the need to carry external sound processing.

But the AD-10 takes acoustic preamp design to an all-new level with its standout feature BOSS’s groundbreaking Acoustic Resonance processing. This advanced tech restores the complex body and string resonances that are lost with most pickup systems, bringing back the expressive, organic vibe that’s so vital to the acoustic experience.

And the features keep on coming, with transparent anti-feedback controls, memories for sound setups, an 80-second looper, USB audio, and much more. Hugely powerful yet simple to use, the compact AD-10 is your all-in-one companion for realizing impressive acoustic tones in every performing environment.


Acoustic Resonance

Unlike other preamps that only capture the sound from the bridge area of your electro acoustic guitar, the Boss AD-10 uses advanced Acoustic Resonance technology that analyses your pickup signal and delivers the full acoustic sound as it was meant to be heard. This is ideal for both live performances and recording as you can deliver the best sound possible.


Two Channels For Added Versatility

The Boss AD-10 Acoustic Preamp pedal is equipped with two channels, perfect for when two guitars are needed. Each channel features independent EQ for tonal shaping, and accommodates different pickup types. In addition, the EQ settings feature four bands, along with a variable low-cut filter for added control.


Onboard Effects electro-acoustic guitars

As well as delivering the perfect acoustic tone, the Boss AD-10 is also equipped with a full host of onboard effects that have been especially designed for electro-acoustic guitars. These include; ambience, delay, and chorus effects with multiple sound types and adjustable parameters.

If that's not enough, players can also benefit from three types of Reverb, especially tuned for guitar. As well as effects, the AD-10 also features an onboard looper, memory presets and a built-in tuner.


Connectivity Options

For live performances or studio sessions, the AD-10 is equipped with an XLR input for direct connectivity to PA systems. As well as this, a stereo ¼-inch jack is also included and allows you to connect to an amp or to headphones. A USB audio interface is also featured, allowing you to connect to computers for studio recording and more.
