    Instant acoustic guitar.

    The Behringer Acoustic Modeler AM300 pedal keeps the momentum from dragging when you switch out your trusty electric for an acoustic guitar in the middle of a set. The AM300 transforms your favorite electric into a rich, resonating acoustic.

    With the flip of a switch, the AM300 can produce the sound of four different acoustics: Standard, Large, Piezo and Bright. Thanks to its Out and Dir Out jacks, the AM300 functions very much like an A/B box. Just use the Dir Out to send your unprocessed electric guitar signal to your onstage amp, and the Out jack to send the processed acoustic signal to the main/monitor mixer(s).

    It's So Easy
    Dedicated Level, Enhance and Resonance controls allow you to fine tune the acoustic model of your choosing. A status LED lets you know when it's activated, and you can power it with either a 9 V battery or a DC power supply (not included). A top-quality on/off switch maintains excellent signal integrity in bypass mode.

    Features

    • Realistic acoustic modeling with any electric guitar
    • 4-mode switch lets you choose between authentic simulations
    • 2 individual outputs
    • Blue status LED
    • High-quality components and rugged construction.

    Call or click to turn your electric fury into acoustic beauty with today.

        Comments about Behringer Acoustic Modeler AM300 Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I bought this pedal so I wouldn't have to switch back and forth between my electric and acoustic guitar. I play through an amp, into a DI box then into house PA. I have tried various configuations, and cannot get it to make my Tele or Strat sound like an acoustic. Sometimes it does add color , but it mostly muddies the sound too much. I've even tried my acoustic guitar with a piezo, and a different guitar with a soundhole pickup ( Woody ) to no avail. I recommend buying a higher quality unit, because this thing just doesn't get the job done, at least not for me.

        Comments about Behringer Acoustic Modeler AM300 Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I play a doubleneck bass/six string live and needed a way to soften the 6 string neck to sound acoustic-like for certain songs we play.Have an old Zoom acoustic effects box I use with my acoustic guitar and it offered 2 channels to model an electric guitar, but it just didn't do what I wanted for my doubleneck.Decided to try the Behringer and was pleasantly surprised how much better it went towards making my 6 string neck mellow out! If it's any help, it is modeling LP type pickups. Only bummer is that is does hum a bit, but playing through my direct box cleans that up nicely.

          Comments about Behringer Acoustic Modeler AM300 Guitar Effects Pedal:

          Well, after having this pedal for a few weeks I can say that it is a great addition to your home studio setup. I did up 17 audio samples for the pedal that folks can check out.

          On Soundcloud, just search for oim-review-tracks. The all start with Omni.

          For them I run thru a ton of various settings, showing how the unit responses differently according to your pickup selection. You can also hear it in a demo track I made to show of the Vox Tonelab LE for some friends. In the track the AM300 is used for some strumming/pad/filler sounds stating at the 2nd verse, and also to double the single-note run at the end.

          On Soundcloud, just search for oim-review-tracks/groove-vox-ngd-track-8-5-13

          Bottom line, it does a great job within a mix, but buy itself....let me just say that like ALL the Acoustic modelers out there you will not do a full song solo & sound convincing at all. In a solo strumming or fingerstyle situation this pedal holds it's own with any other one out there IMHO. In the mix it sounds just as good as any other pedal out there.

          Listen to my demos and let YOUR ear's be the judge....

          I would like to see if the AM400 with the RSM tech is worth the extra money, so if a Berry rep reads this I am open to doing the same run thru with it just to see..... "wink" " wink"

          This is a no-brainer if you are looking for this type of effect, it is WELL worth the cost.

          Comments about Behringer Acoustic Modeler AM300 Guitar Effects Pedal:

          Behringer took a LONG time to ship my order from the factory. I waited over a month for this pedal.
          When I received it I noticed there are really no useful instructions (something on how to put the battery in might have been nice!) and no suggestions for settings.
          I Finally figured out that the battery goes inside the top of the pedal and plugged my Strat in. I would in no way describe what I was hearing as an acoustic guitar tone on any setting, but it DID make for a nice fat electric tone similar to the rhythm guitar sounds the Stones used to use. I'll have fun with this pedal and I suspect I'll figure out how to get the tones I want.

          It does impart some acoustic quality

          About Me Experienced

          Pros

          • Compact Design

          Cons

          • Hiss If Too High

          Best Uses

          • Decent Almost Acoustic
          • Performances

          Comments about Behringer Acoustic Modeler AM300 Guitar Effects Pedal:

          I own one of these. It just arrived today. I ran my strat through it into an Epi Valve Jr. There is a marked softer, almost acoustic sound that gets generated. If the level and enhance knobs are turned past 12:00, you will hear a hiss. The "res" knob is good until 3:00, after which you get a hiss. To my ear, the "standard large" setting on the selector switch sounds best.

          I found that the sound through the box is softer in volume and tone than the "naked" pickups by themselves. You may want to use a little extra reverb on your amp when using this pedal.

          If you cast about on the web, you will find that most people are saying the same thing about this kind of stompbox that I am saying: if you have 1 or 2 songs in your set that might sound better with acoustic, this box will give your playing an acoustic shade without switching guitars. It won't sound exactly like an acoustic.

          One more thing: this unit did not seem to work with my 9V Boss adapter or my Digitech 9V adapter. I do not yet know if that's because you need to have a battery installed (even a dead battery) to complete a circuit.
