    A few minutes of orienteering and you’re all set.

Amp legend Orange takes another step into the acoustic field with its Acoustic Pedal, which is essentially a DI box with frills… and what frills they are. As you can imagine, anything coming from such a renowned stable is not only going to follow through on its promises but do so with great user-friendly functionality and transparency in use. 

That is, if the traditionally reserved acoustic crowd can get past the somewhat psychedelic artwork on the pedal itself! So, what exactly is on offer? For starters, there is basic volume, plus treble and bass EQ, which, we’re told, benefits from a single-ended design for an ultra-low noise floor.
