In the world of guitar amplification and effects, Orange Amplification has long held a leading manufacturing title. This is especially true over the past few years where the company has excelled at impressively squeezing amps into pedal-sized packages. The latest instance of this occurrence happened recently, when Orange announced Acoustic Pedal. The unit effectively merges a natural pre-amp with an EQ system designed to specifically enhance acoustic elements. Here’s everything you should know about the Orange Acoustic Pedal before you dive in.
Orange Acoustic Pedal
Out of the gate, the Orange Acoustic Pedal delivers a design that certainly catches the eye. The box sports a creamy, off-white base coat, featuring an orange printed pattern across the face. In total, it consists of a six knob array. The top most knobs make up the pedal’s three band EQ system, where the bottom set control its notch filter, tone factor and overall volume.
Speaking on tone — Orange promises a truly enhanced acoustic sound with this pre in a pedal. The company piggybacked off of its other past products such as the Acoustic Pre and Crush Acoustic 30 amp, ensuring true tonal clarity. This design partly includes a low-noise JFET circuit to guarantee these low levels of background noise. Designed for simplicity’s sake, the pedal offers two outputs, one balanced XLR and one 1/4″. Additionally, a send and return I/O system just above the output knobs allows for more effects to be chained into the system.
Keeping consumer affordability clearly in mind, the Orange Acoustic Pedal is available now for just $169. For its advertised flexibility in use and overall natural sound, that’s definitely a reasonable ask for this unit. To learn more about the Acoustic Pedal, check out its listing on Orange Amplification’s website. Otherwise if you’re ready to dive in, a list of worldwide dealers is also available there. We look forward to learning more about this pedal as it grows in popularity, and can’t wait to see what Orange has in store for us next.
