Variax 300 acoustic sounds rubbish?

Recommended Posts

Hi, this is new to me but i bought an old variax 300 from an old friend just for the 12 string snd acoustic sounds mainly. Why do the acoustic sounds not sound anything like an acoustic? Just sounds like an electric to me.

Acoustic sounds are good if you have a full range amp.  If you plug into a standard guitar amp, they do not sound good at all.

As Charlie_Watt mentioned above, modeled acoustic sounds require the same type of sound reproduction required with a normal acoustic instrument. Plugging an acoustic guitar into a standard combo amp typically does not produce desired results, same thing with the modeled sounds. A PA, acoustic amp, or some sort of FRFR speaker is your best bet.

My Variax sounds great with my HD500x and a PA speaker.  I use an acoustic model that has no amp sim.

Same answer to the same question in the other thread....no FRFR, no usable acoustic tones. That's all she wrote.
