A3 Acoustic Effect/Preamp Pedal Including Power Supply description:

The Zoom A3 is an inline acoustic guitar remodelling pedal that can breathe the live back into your PA output.

As PA systems often reproduce acoustic guitar pickups with a generally flat and lifeless tone, the Zoom A3 can reintroduce some of that lost character back into the signal chain before being output.  The Zoom A3 remodelling pedal has 16 body types to choose from, including dreadnought, jumbo and even orchestral shapes like single, double and triple O.  The A3 also offers 28 models to help shape your acoustic guitar tone further; choose from settings like advanced jumbo, humming bird, 12-string and dove.

In addition, the Zoom A3 uses a high quality pre-amp with a three band equaliser, 40 onboard effects including delay, reverb, chorus and detune, an anti-feedback function, and an XLR input with phantom power so a microphone signal can be mixed with the pickup signal. 

The Zoom A3 also features a 12dB amplifier gain boost, an onboard tuner, tempo tap function, balanced XLR output for DI, unbalanced jack for pickup input, stereo output on balance jack, headphone out, USB connection for firmware updates and can either be mains or battery powered

The Zoom A3 features include:

  • 16 body types:  round shoulder, square shoulder, jumbo body, parlor body, mold body, single cutaway, resonator, upright bass, dreadnought, orchestra, triple O, double O, YMH, Silent, 12 String, Nylon String

This is a sophisticated piece of kit that takes some getting used to; especially if you are relatively new to effects pedals. However, it's worth spending time to gain familiarity with the full range of features and effects that can be programmed into the unit. Go on treat yourself. DV247 are offering a very competitive price on the Zoom A3 at the moment.

Does exactly what it says.
A no frills pre amp and effects unit.
Takes a bit of getting round the tweaking but worth persevering with.
The manual is pretty basic and its best to go on you tube to get to know it.
But overall I think zoom have made a excellent job.
Great sounding pedal that will enhance any acoustic set up.
Pros-- every effect is very good, numerous ways to use it. Boost function.
Cons--- Manual and not supplied with UK plug
