A/DA GCS-3 Guitar Cabinet Simulator & DI Box

Brands:

$149.95

The new GCS-3 Guitar Cabinet Simulator & DI Box featuring Natural Resonance Response™ can turn any full-range passive or powered monitor speaker or sound system into a dynamic guitar cabinet, loaded with your choice of drivers.  It is priced very reasonably for something so powerful and useful.

** Please note: video demo above is of the GCS-2.  The ADA GCS-3 adds these additional Features to the existing GCS-2 platform:

  • POWER AMP DIRECT-CONNECT
  • Stereo ¼” Headphone Out & Volume Control

The GCS-3 is an easy-to-use guitar cabinet simulator in a small, rugged package designed for guitar players and sound engineers who are looking for high quality analog solutions for live sound reinforcement systems, stage monitors and recording electric guitar.

It is ideally suited for live performance and studio applications. A unique feature of the GCS-3 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 GCS-3 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. The GCS-3 is 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.

A/DA have tested the 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.
