Boss Acousic Simulator

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by henryjurstin13, Jan 10, 2006.

  1. What do these sound like with a bass? Anything usable at all? I did a search, but all I found was a post saying it was bad - but, no descriptions.

    Can it do a good acoustic bass?


    Does it like active/passive pickups better?

    any comments would be greatly appreciated. henry

    They in NO way make an electric bass sound like and acoustic-electric bass, and upright bass, or any other real instrument. No such thing as a free lunch.

    They will alter you sound, though. To what, depends on the power of your imagination.
  3. I completely understand it won't make me sound 'like' anything other than an electric bass with a pedal turned on... but, I don't have access to one & was looking for experience with this.

    thanks... henry

    I have tried this pedal with a bass. After running it through a variety of settings and amps, the results just didn't seem pleasing to the ear. It didn't sound much like an ABG or upright at all, and mostly sounded rather lousy overall.
