The JOYO AD-2 Acoustic Guitar effect pedal is an acoustic preamp and D.I. Box, it is designed for use with electro acoustic guitars or with electro ukulele performance & recording in mind.
The JOYO AD-2 has a built-in dual band EQ so you can fine-tune the low and high frequencies. It also features a treble boost to push the high end when you need it. Another very helpful addition is the anti-feedback circuit, this is very useful for live performances. With the JOYO AD-2 Acoustic Preamp, acoustic-electric guitarists can now experience natural, studio-quality sound while performing on any stage.
The AD-2 features two independent outputs for performance flexibility. Connect the Output jack to your acoustic guitar amp or stage monitor, and use the Line Out to send a balanced signal direct to the PA mixer.
Another great feature is the clipping LED, if your input is too high the LED will go from Orange to Red, preventing any unwanted distortion.
If you encounter any low-frequency feedback issues on stage, the AD-2’s anti feedback control filter has you covered. As soon as you hear that familiar rumble, just turn on the Anti Feedback and turn the anti-feedback control knob until it goes away. It’s that easy!
Bring Your Acoustic’s Natural Sound to the Stage
The tone of an acoustic guitar is created by the complex interaction of sounds from its body, top, strings, and other elements.
And as you play with varying techniques, dynamics, and more, this interaction constantly evolves to create the rich, woody sound we love. Unfortunately, the standard undersaddle piezo pickups installed on most stage guitars simply can’t reproduce this resonant complexity.
The AD-2’s Acoustic Resonance effect solves this issue by analyzing the input signal as you play, and then employing advanced processing to beautifully recreate your guitar’s naturally evolving tone.
Perfect for performing and recording with a balanced output to your mixer or recording device, at the same time enabling you to continue to use your acoustic amp as a stage monitor if you wanted. The AD-2 can be powered with a battery or a 9v DC power adapter.
Input level - controls the level of the signal input
Treble - boost or cut the treble band frequency
Bass - boost or cut the bass band frequency
Anti-feedback - use this to manually filter the howling frequency point (range from 80hz to 300hz), the anti feedback button must be activated.
Output level - controls the output signal level
Input - from your guitar
Output - out to your acoustic guitar amp (so you could use them as a monitor)
XLR Balanced out - straight to the mixing desk or your recording interface using the XLR input.
Anti-feedback - activate or deactivate the feedback filter
Treble boost - boosts the treble.
Input clip - This LED indicates if the input signal level. if it is distorted this will be red, amber is acceptable but some clipping may occur.
