Boss Announced the AD-10 Acoustic Preamp



Boss announced the AD-10 Acoustic Preamp, a new professional preamp/DI pedal for acoustic-electric guitar. The dual-channel AD-10 features the latest generation of Boss’ Acoustic Resonance technology, which restores natural acoustic tone in amplified acoustic stage instruments.

The pedal also includes numerous tone-shaping tools, onboard effects, and a looper, plus newly developed functions to control feedback with minimal tonal coloration. Hugely powerful yet simple to use, the AD-10 gives serious acoustic players everything they need to achieve rich, organic tones in any performing environment.

An unplugged acoustic guitar produces a complex, full-bodied tone that can’t be reproduced by the standard pickup systems installed on most stage guitars. Using proprietary Boss technology, the AD-10’s standout Acoustic Resonance feature solves this issue by analyzing the input signal in real time and employing advanced processing to recreate the guitar’s naturally resonant acoustic tone.

The AD-10’s Acoustic Resonance offers the deepest implementation to date, with more powerful processing, three resonance types, and the ability to balance the tonal character to suit the needs of different instruments.

Feedback is another common problem with amplifying acoustic guitars on stage, and the AD-10 includes multiple layers of feedback protection to address these issues. With a twist of the feedback reduction knob, the user can engage newly developed Boss technology that seeks out and suppresses the offending frequency while continually maintaining balanced overall tone.

For deeper feedback problems, the AD-10 includes sophisticated notch filters that can be tuned manually or set for automatic scanning to eliminate feedback in the background.
