Effects With Acoustic Guitars?

Published on 17 Jul 2015

Who on Earth would have a separate pedalboard purely for acoustic guitar?

Well... Daniel for one, and in this video he and Mick discuss the ups and downs of using effects with our beloved plugged-in strumboxes.

This isn't about endless creative potential and your next magnum opus, it's about everyday practicalities when doing acoustic gigs.

Overdrive and boost? You bet. Tremolo? Why not. EQ pedals? Absolutely!

Mick is playing his Collings CJ35 with passive K&K Pure Mini pickup. Daniel is playing his active-piezo-equipped Tanglewood Master Design and Yamaha Silent Guitar. All guitars are running through an AER Compact 60 3 amplifier.
