Last updated on June 10, 2024 12:26 am Details


In this review post, we’re going to be discussing the TC Helicon Play Acoustic Vocal and acoustic Guitar Effects Stompbox, including an overview of its unique features.

Product Description

Play Acoustic combines all the things you need to make a live acoustic performance shine: lavish vocal sounds, perfect backing harmonies, best-selling guitar effects, and unique processing that makes your six-string sing – in perfect harmony with your voice.

Keep your vocals clean with a tight reverb or simple harmony – or go all out with tasty delays, thick doubling, edgy hard tuning, cool modulations, and raw distortions. The choice is yours with hundreds of presets from the most popular styles.

Play Acoustic treats your guitar with the respect it deserves. Tailor-made guitar FX from TC Electronic adds a sweet touch of magic and our new BodyRez gives you a fuller, acoustic tone when you’re playing through a PA.

Our Verdict

In the end, it all boils down to personal preference. Do you wish to give your acoustic performances more body and depth, or are you a die-hard lo-fi fan? If you’re the latter, you don’t need the Play Acoustic, but if you want to embrace the larger range of sound possibilities that equipment like the Play Acoustic represents, I’d recommend you get one.
