ADA GCS-5 Guitar Cabinet Simulator& DI Box featuring Natural Resonance Response™
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-3/5 only) and send it to the house sound console or board or powered full-range cabinet.
ADA adds a New Cabinet Simulator / DI Box to its expanding line of Cabinet Simulators with the GCS-5.
The new GCS-5 adds to ADA’s line of analog cabinet simulators and processed DI boxes, doubling the tonal capabilities of its predecessors by adding an AMERICAN / BRITISH speaker type selector switch. The GCS-5 replaces the physical combination of speakers, cabinets and microphones used in live performance and recording with a consistent and “real world” simulation in a small steel enclosure.
The GCS-5 features a unique set of unconventional filters tuned to simulate the acoustic resonances and frequency responses of mic’d guitar speaker cabinets. The GCS-5 is inserted between the output of your preamplifier, power amp or pedal board and a recording interface or PA system. The GCS-5 includes a LEVEL control with an LED monitoring meter to optimize performance. The XLR OUTPUT is compatible with phantom power, and a 20dB PAD allows for direct connection to power amp outputs. The HEADPHONE OUTPUT with a separate LEVEL control is provided for private monitoring and practice. The GCS-5 puts the guitar player back in control and gives them the opportunity to keep "their tone" consistent from gig to gig as well as in the studio.
Made in California, housed in an all-steel industry enclosure (4.2” x 3.25” x 1.8” LxWxH), using the highest quality components, the GCS-5 comes with an AC Adapter and a one-year parts and labor warranty. It can also be powered by 9VDC pedal board power supply rated at 200mA.
