Who uses pedals for live sound/shows with their acoustic guitar(s)?

What ones ? and why?

I know why, we all have our "needs".

 curious as to who else uses pedals on their acoustic rig.

And...go!

It depends...  if I’m doing folky stuff, typically I don’t use any.  If I’m doing ambient stuff (for art openings and such), i use a volume pedal, echo, and looper (Boomerang).

the reason why I ask, is, almost embarrassing .
I haven't used pedals for acoustic shows, and very little for electric (some trem on occasion, maybe a bit of delay) as I have a few tube amps, I use the "natural" break-up/saturation for a gig.

I have a couple pals who use a few pedals for acoustic shows- I find overly so- like distortion (on acoustic)- really grates me.
In fact any effect that becomes overly dominant in the mix grates me.

However, recently, in one combo I work with, I did start using some compression with a volume pedal for solo's and it was nice.
a subtle boost when needed for solo's to cut through the mix a bit.

 Thus my inquiry here.
 keep them coming, thanks.

I'm same as you. Never on acoustic and I have an AC 30 vox tube amp that easily goes from clean to any level of crunch you want naturally. With a touch of that spring reverb, can't beat it for me. On acoustic always just a good preamp, tonebone for last 5 years. It has a boost button when I want. But also like you thinking about checking out a couple things as I'm starting a second duet for whom it might be nice. I DO NOT envision myself having a whole box of pedals like a lot of acoustic players have now around here. Got to be careful not to lose the realness.

Just a touch of this



on occasion when playing in an acoustic oriented duo.  Gives me a little warm, earthy boost. Nothing crazy.  I use this to let me play comfortably without pushing the guitar for more volume when soloing.

Out of production in 2005.

I use a Zoom G5. Two reasons: impedance matching for my K+K and I have spent quite a bit of time with several parametric eqs in series in a patch that makes the K+K sound like a decent mic. Hint of reverb on the end of the signal chain.
