  • Distortion with acoustic ?

    Is there anyone here that use (or did use) some very mild overdrive or distortion with their electro acoustics ?

     

    The only clips i can find on YouTube when i do such a search is with massive amounts of gain, and that sounds horrible - to say the least.

     

    Do you guys know of any good clips out there with minimal/tastefull amounts of gain with an acoustic ?

     

    Thanx

    Check out Jack Conte on the Tube. He plays his acoustic through all kinds of pedals. He uses a Big Muff with his acoustic.

      Guitar solo at 3:14. This is the only one I can recall. Sounds more like Fishman EQ and real good compressor.

        I don't have a link for you, but do a search on John Butler. He uses distortion on 12 string acoustics and on 6 string acoustics. He may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I like him.

          There's a bit of distortion in his tone, but it works for the song.

          Yup, that's who came to my mind, as well.
