Powerful Tonal Enhancement

4K Recording

tailored to your guitarAdjusting the AC-3 to your instrument of choice is simple. Firstly, choose one of the 16 Source Guitar presets, from Dreadnought, Jumbo or Parlor, then select either ‘piezo’ or ‘magnetic pickup’. Once this has been set, it’s time to select one of 15 Target Guitar presets, such as ‘D-Eighteen’, ‘Humming Bird’ or ‘J-Forty Five’.

Now you’re all set up, you’re finally ready to enjoy wonderful, well-rounded sound which remains loyal to your guitar’s natural voice. Additionally, the AC-3 removes the trial and error away from gain-staging, the AC-3’s volume control determines both input gain and output simultaneously.

Super-Smooth Compression

back

full & consistent soundThe guitar is an instrument with a broad dynamic range. For this reason, Zoom fitted the AC-3 with a compressor to level out your playing, with the end result a full and consistent sound. Furthermore, thanks to it’s simple one knob design and LED indicator, it couldn’t be easier to control and find your desired level of compression.

For the times when you could do with just a little extra volume, just hit the ‘Boost’ switch for an extra 9dB of gain!

The Finishing Touch

9 fantastic effectsZoom crammed 9 different effects inside the AC-3, including delay, chorus and reverb. The effect algorithms have been developed in-house by Zoom, specifically designed for acoustic instruments, to add authentic depth and flavour to your guitars sound.
