Expand Your Acoustic Possibilities With The Zoom AC-2 Acoustic Creator Enhanced Direct Box

Amplify your acoustic sound with the Zoom AC-2 Acoustic Creator. The AC-2 is a DI (direct box) that encompasses all you need to deliver natural guitar tone on stage or in the studio. The AC-2 automatically restores tone lost through acoustic pickups, so your sound is always lush, resonant, and faithful to the instrument you have in hand.

Restore Your Acoustic Tone

With 16 source guitar presets, the AC-2 recovers the sonic characteristics of a variety of guitar types and body shapes. You can choose from dreadnought, upright bass, nylon strings, 12 string, and more.

Simply select your guitar of choice, then choose piezo or magnetic pickup. From there, the AC-2 is ready to reproduce and amplify your guitar’s tone with complete accuracy.

Essential DI Features

The AC-2 features a high-quality preamp which boosts your signal and helps restore your true acoustic sound. Add its natural-sounding reverb to increase your acoustic’s depth and width, and round out your desired tone with easy 3-band EQ adjustments.

Volume Control

The AC-2's Volume knob automatically controls the preamp’s input gain and output level, taking the guesswork out of adjusting sound levels to match. It’s all you need to make volume control and setup simple when you’re playing live on stage.

Cut Feedback Automatically

The AC-2 is also equipped with an anti-feedback button that automatically locates and eliminates problem frequencies — an essential for live performances.

Tune On The Spot

The AC-2’s built-in tuner with its large LED meter lets you easily see when you’re in tune.

Up to 9DB Of Additional Gain

You can also add 9 dB of gain with the tap of your foot using the AC-2's boost function, allowing you to switch from strumming to finger-picking without ever losing a note.
