Boss AD-10 Acoustic Preamp Boss has launched the AD-10 professional preamp/DI pedal for acoustic-electric guitar. The dual- channel AD-10 features the latest generation of Boss’s Acoustic Resonance technology, which restores natural acoustic tone in amplified acoustic stage instruments. The pedal also includes a number of tone-shaping tools, onboard effects, and a looper, plus new functions to control feedback with minimal tonal colouration. The AD-10’s Acoustic Resonance offers the deepest implementation of the technology to date, with more powerful processing, three resonance types, and the ability to balance the tonal character to suit the needs of different instruments. The AD-10 also includes multiple layers of feedback protection. With the feedback reduction knob, the user can suppress the offending frequency while continually maintaining balanced overall tone. For deeper feedback problems, the AD-10 includes notch filters that can be tuned manually or set for automatic scanning to eliminate feedback in the background.

Godin Session Custom T 59 Godin has released the Session Custom T 59 with an updated high gloss coral blue finish and vintage ashtray bridge. Like the original Session Custom, this guitar features Seymour Duncan ’59 humbucker and Godin “Cajun Custom” single-coil pickups. Other features include the high-definition Revoicer (HDR), five-way pickup selector, and five-ply tortoise shell pickguard. The vintage sound- ing ashtray bridge is fully adjustable and is designed to deliver the sustain and punch of fixed bridges. The HDR revoices and augments the frequency range of each pickup and allows the player to go from passive to active pickups instantly. The HDR provides extra bite, dynamic response, and redefines the character of each pickup. It’s like having two sets of pickups in one guitar for five pure passive tones and five pure active tones.
