I've been interested in an acoustic simulator pedal. I've only tried out a Boss AC-2 in store and didn't care for it. I was running it into a Crate amp. But now I've heard that those kinds of pedals sound better when run through an acoustic amplifier.

Do I need to get another amp to get the most out of that pedal?

I have also heard of using a compressor along with reverb to get an acoustic guitar-like sound.

And before I hear "Just buy an acoustic guitar", I like being able to switch between an acoustic sound and a heavy distorted sound as fast as possible

i was using a line 6 x3 and got a pretty sweet tone out of it but again not "acoustic" enough....

buy an acoustic amp, and maybe the boss AC-2.

of course with these, you will need an A/B box to switch between your main amp and the acoustic

a peizo pu is definitely the best way to go if you want natural, acoustic simulation from an electric guitar

get a cheap marshall... my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps.

a huge waste of money.


Piezo is the best option.

yeah, or you do it the vai way, install both a high-output pickup, and a piezo , let each have their output (cable wise) so it sounds like you're playing both acoustic and electric
