The Zoom AC-2 Acoustic Creator Acoustic Guitar Pre-Amp and Effects Pedal is the ideal single-box solution for acoustic performances on the stage and in the studio. Thanks to some ingenious design, it couldn't be easier to faithfully capture and translate the rich timbre of your acoustic guitar in all its glory. The AC-2 boasts a range of acoustic presets to suit any model, versatile connectivity options, a simple anti-feedback switch, boost function, chromatic tuner, LED display and flexible power supply options - what more could you ask for?!

One-stop solution

The Zoom AC-2 is equipped with a high-quality preamp that gives your signal sufficient power without introducing unwanted overdrive into the signal path, preserving the fidelity of your timbre immaculately. Whether you're playing a nylon string acoustic or a century old dreadnought, the simple preset layout allows you to zero in on the correct model to suit you. Any loss of depth or warmth can be reignited thanks to the AC-2's flawless ability to fill in the tonal gaps and reinforce your output. The pickup selector switch allows you to choose Piezo, Magnetic, or Off to match your guitar setup.

Anti-feedback and boost

Setting up for a gig couldn't be easier thanks to the simple anti-feedback function. All you need to do is push the button, play as you would during the gig and the AC-2 will do the rest. There's even a Boost knob and corresponding footswitch, which allows you to inject up to 9dB of boost into your signal. Whether you're ramping it up for lead work or solos, or simply want to smooth out the transition between strumming chords and deft fingerpicking.


The Zoom AC-2 is equipped with a balanced XLR output that features pre/post control that enables the unit to be directly connected to PA mixing board or studio desks. You will also find a pair of 1/4-inch output for simultaneous mono/stereo connection to amplifiers, headphones for personal monitoring or audio interfaces. You can fully utilise stereo or delay effects to maximise your tonal potential. Across the rear panel you'll find the ground/lift switch that prevents unwanted hum or buzz from mics and speakers from blemishing your tone.

The Zoom AC-2 Acoustic Creator Acoustic Guitar Pre-Amp and Effects Pedal can be powered via three possible means: mains powered using the included power supply, battery power via a pair of AA batteries, and also via USB Bus power. Wherever you're performing you can rely on the AC-2 to make life significantly easier so that you can focus on what you do best.
