is there such a thing ??....... I've played a Music Man electric guitar that had a button to make it sound like a Acoustic guitar and was wanting to know if there is a pedal to do the same thing for a regular electric guitar ??

thanks , Eric

I have never used any of them, so your guess is as good as mine. I would bet the BOSS is built better than the Mooer though

There are more expensive ones, but I don't know if they would really be any better

The Unplugged Acoustic Simulator pedal model in the Digitech iStomp isn't bad, and with the pedal going on sale pretty regularly for $40, and being able to load any of 47 different pedals, it's hard to beat.

Of course you need an iDevice to load it...

that's a good idea

The boss pedal is good.

Also worth noting that several multi effect pedals include an acoustic simulator. If you went that route, the Zoom G3/5 is hard to beat.

I use my zoom G1 for acoustic simulation, I just shove it through my neck pickup on a clean amp

I have a boss AC-3. Very disappointing. Sounds nothing like an acoustic, just sounds like a very high presence electric guitar.

+1 in every pedal ive tried, electric guitars trying to mimic acoustics always sounds wrong.

switching guitars, electric to acoustic, or finding a dedicated acoustic / electric guitar sounds the best.

+2 I never liked my AC-3. Sounded like an electric with no mids and a lot of reverb. The best acoustic simulation I've ever herd is from a Variax guitar plugged into a POD HD500. But hat's a $2000 setup haha.

The acoustic simulator on the Zoom MultiStomp pedals is nicer than the Boss AC-3, IMHO.

I assume it's exactly the same acoustic simulator that's on the other current Zoom multi-fx units.

You could just get a piezo bridge like the EBMMs have. They run usually around $100-150 I think.

As for pedals, I don't think I've come across a pedal I like as an acoustic sim.

Sorry for the late reply. I thought this would be nice for anyone who wants an instant acoustic sound live.

I have a Variax and I can confirm that it's probably the best way to make an electric sound like an acoustic.

However, honestly the only thing you need to get a DECENT/NICE acoustic sound is a piezo pickup. Throw the piezo signal into an EQ and EQ to your liking.

By the way, my Variax only cost 500, and lower models can cost as low as 150-200 on ebay if you keep your eye open. The new JTV Variaxes are the ones that cost 1k-4k dollars depending on which models or if they're the US or Korean built ones.


Like I've said though, all you need is a piezo system, you don't need the Variax unless you're picky or want more modeling. It gives it some body and tone but you can compensate piezos alone with an EQ.

Acoustic sim pedals are shit and are the bane of my existence, and you should not get one unless you're insanely desperate for switching to an instant acoustic-esque sound and don't want to mod your guitar.
