Boss AD-5
Effects: Chorus and Reverb
An anti larsen
A "simulator" that allows you to play virtually on the size of the box and the distance micro / strings.
An equalizer: bass, mdium, acute and prsence.
Gnral volume and 2 levels following the connection of piezo or magntic.
A comuter phase: normal or inversbr />
Connectivity (one of the highlights):
By magnetic or Piezo input jack (indpendants)
Output Stereo / Mono by jack and / or XLR
Footswitch Jack (Stereo)
Power boss.

The effects are numriques, but program is the "old" by turning the knobs and therefore no memory setting (and not making head).

All in a sturdy box in mtal well. The knobs seem a bit fragile (the 9 is to a) ... I have never broken one yet as I am a breaker while pathological.


Configuration: it is difficult to be simpler.
The manual ... uh ... I think I've never opened ... DSOL.


The quality is excellent effects with respect to the chorus and reverb.
I confess I have never needed the anti feedback.
The simulator cash ... little used but the effect on the sound is really so everyone can find their account. Same distance on a micro whatever gives some extent when recording.
The legalization does his Boult, but no more.

I sound a little critical and it is not true: with all the Settings, you get really give a color and texture his guitar.

The 2 XLR outputs: gnial to attack a console for both scne register.

Trs transparent effect: no hum and other buzz, no breath ... variment trs good.


I used it with an electro-acoustic, but also with an electric. I am absolutely delighted.

Boss AD-5
Prampli transistor, the AD5 can serve as a direct box thanks to its function bypassed.
It has two inputs with phase reversal for one of them and rglage indpendant level of. deus XLR outputs, two output jack, an effects loop.
slecteur a mono, Stereo, a floor of legalization, a notch filter, a simulator box of reason, a chorus and a rverbe.


The configuration could not be easier, turn the knob and the sound changes, no mmorisation or preset, it's a rle has faith!


The equalization is ffective with the addition of a knob prsence.
Notch filter: we chose the cut frquence and its rate attnuation. That a effective but does not cut frquence of feedback (live shows when the feedback is often his nose with several harmonics).
simulation of the body and the disance miking, trs are effective and brings the sweetness to piezo indicator.
rverbe chorus and do their job well, these two effects are neutral ass.


I possde the AD3 and an AER amp, the asser AD3 n'tait not complete, the EAR, exellent low volume, but a disaster that the ds push a little .
I finally found a reliable robust easy to use, effective.
it remains for me to get me a compressor for rguler dynamics amplify my guitar ... a nylon guitar, while a story ...
