Zoom AC-2 Overview
Introducing the all-new Zoom AC-2 Acoustic Creator, an enhanced direct box that offers everything a guitarist needs to deliver their natural acoustic tone wherever they play—from the stage to the studio.
The AC-2 automatically restores tone that’s lost through acoustic pickups, ensuring that a guitarist’s live sound is always lush, resonant, and faithful to their chosen instrument.
There are 16 source guitar presets including dreadnought, upright bass, and 12 string, so guitarists can choose their guitar type and set the AC-2 to reproduce its sonic characteristics. From there, they can choose a piezo or magnetic pickup, and then use the AC-2’s high-quality preamp, tuner, and 3-band EQ to tweak their sound.
