A/DA GSC-3 Guitar Cabinet Simulator & DI Box
Turn any full-range passive or powered monitor speaker or sound system into a dynamic guitar cabinet, loaded with your choice of drivers. Get incredible guitar tone with ADA’s new analog GCS Series “Natural Resonance” miked cabinet simulators.
No mics, power amps, guitar cabinets needed. Just take your guitar signal from your pedal board, preamp or power amp (GCS-3 only) and send it to the house sound console or board or powered full-range cabinet.
Select from vintage or modern, 10 or 12 inch speakers in a sealed or open back cabinet to get the powerful and rich resonance of a real guitar cabinet, and then dial-in the position of your microphone to balance it out. Here’s what guitarists are saying about the GCS family of Cabinet Simulators.
The ADA GCS family are ideally suited for live performance and studio applications. A unique feature of the GCS’ is that it replicates the low frequency natural resonance of a guitar speaker cabinet at loud volumes, which is especially noticeable in the SEALED CABINET configuration.
The ADA GCS is inserted between the output of your preamplifier (or effects pedal chain) and a mixing or recording console to replace the close proximity microphone that is typically used to mic a guitar speaker cabinet. This eliminates the problem of bleed through or crosstalk from other instruments or amplifiers in live situations. GCS are especially useful for owners of our APP-1 guitar pedal preamp because it can split the output of the APP-1 for sending the signal to a guitar amplifier and to a mixing console for recording, house sound systems and stage monitor systems.
We have tested the GCS-2 and GCS-3 in live performances by sending a feed to a stage monitor for the guitarist and eliminating the combo or head with stack. The same feedback that you get from a stack or a hot-rod combo can easily be produced in the monitor, and interestingly, with more control.
