AP 13 Acoustic Preamplifier

Making an amplified acoustic guitar sound good has never been easy, but Rane’s AP 13 simplifies the task by providing separate piezo and mic/pickup channels, plus extensive EQ and signal-routing in a single rack-mountable unit. The AP 13 allows the acoustic guitarist—or player of any other pickup and/or microphone-equipped acoustic instrument—to precisely shape their sound without lugging around a mixer and a bunch of signal processors. And even though it offers a broad selection of functions and connection options, the AP 13 is very straightforward to operate. Let’s take a look at it.
