However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Every guitarist knows how difficult it can be to capture the true sound of an unplugged acoustic guitar, by simply relying on the standard undersaddle piezo pickups. Boss have now designed a compact solution to this common problem, and have created an acoustic resonance effect, that recreates the complex tonal characteristics of an unplugged acoustic giving you a natural tone that sits well in any mix. This innovative system works by analysing the input signal in real time and uses advantaged processing to recreate the guitar's true tone.

Acoustic Resonance Control

Achieving the perfect sound is easy with the AD-2, as by simply twisting the one-knob control, the unit adjusts multiple parameters at once, allowing players to achieve the perfect tonal balance for any style.

Ambience Effect

When using ambience effect, players can dial in a high-quality reverb optimised for any acoustic guitar performance. Unlike other reverb pedals, the AD-2 is capable of producing a deep ambience that perfectly complements the instrument’s voice. By turning this dial, players can achieve a wide range of superb reverb sounds.

Additional Features

In addition to providing you with a true acoustic tone, the AD-2 features two independent outputs for performance flexibility. The easily located output jack is ideal for connecting to an acoustic guitar amp or stage monitor, as well as the Line Out connection for sending a balanced signal direct to a PA mixer. If that's not enough, the versatile unit also offers low-frequency feedback reduction with an easy-to-use notch filter, and the ability to use the footswitch to mute the sound for switching guitars and tuning on stage.

Compact Structure

Like with many pedals from Boss, the AD-2 offers a familiar compact chassis, along with a durable footswitch for easy access. Its compact structure makes it the perfect addition to any pedalboard.
