Tried different numbers with bass and treble and all that stuff on my amp, but i can't get it to sound..... genuinely acoustic. Is there like an "ideal" setting?

-sigh-....

Acoustic is best obtained with either an ACOUSTIC guitar or an effect with the ACOUSTIC setting. Perhaps look around for a multi-effects processor.

Man, i can't afford one right now.

Plus it doesn't have to sound EXACTLY like an acoustic. If that was my issue... i'd use my acoustic guitar... =|

There are singular pedals you can buy that are acoustic simulators. Boss makes a pretty decent one, I've played around with it at my local shop. I sounds good, not EXACT, cause nothing beats a REAL acoustic, but it gets the job done, and Boss aren't TOO expensive.

And there really isn't a way to get an acoustic sound in your amp without basically tearing it apart.... (I think)

Make sure your using your neck pickup for a start.

But really the only way i can get a decent acoustic sound from my electric is to use the neck pickup, run it through amp modeling that simulates both an acoustic guitar sound and an acoustic amp and cabinet

also turn down ur guitar's volume.

and for $20 this pedal isnt "that" bad...

It's easy for me, though I have an AD30VT. I can just put it on one of the 3 or so clean amp models, turn the gain down to 5, switch to a pickup near the neck, and turn on the Chorus Reverb effect on the amp, and I get a pretty good acoustic tone.

JJ's given the best advice. I have both the Boss and the Behringer which I bought on a whim. I think I may actually like the behringer a bit more. The real trick to getting a terrific acoustic sim sound is to run guitar to sim to PA. (I'd recommend an acoustic amp but I'm sensing the budget constraint) If you need both capacities, run the guitar to an A/B switch and out to (A) amp and (B) acoustic sim pedal to PA.

Good Luck

I seldom put the gain past like 3 if I want a good clean sound..... But then I am VERY picky.....
And I usually have the preamp volume all the way up.....

YEah, if you got the money, BOSS' Acoustic Simulator is your best bet. I love mine.

you could use the second input to go straight into the P.A if your using one when gigging and the first one goes into your amp

Neck pickup, guitar's volume low, amps master volume higher than usual.

That's the best acoustic sound you'll get without getting an acoustic or acoustic sim pedal.
