Orange Acoustic Pedal

Orange Amplification has launched the Acoustic Pedal , which is designed as a “ do-it-all ” compact preamp pedal .
The Acoustic Pedal offers a host of versatile features but maintains simple controls and setup . Its low-noise JFET circuit design ensures low levels of background noise , without hiss , whilst still maintaining a lot of headroom for a clean , clear acoustic tone . Its powerful , notch-controlled EQ allows players to subtly sculpt their sound and tackle feedback . The fixed Bass and Treble knobs provide control of the “ body ” and “ sparkle ” of an instrument , while the transparent , buffered FX Loop offers acoustic players an ideal signal chain for loopers , reverbs , and delays .
The pedal can be connected directly to a PA with its balanced XLR output and can be used simultaneously with the additional 1 / 4-in . mono jack .
