NUX Optima Air NAI-5 Effects Pedal

The NUX Optima Air is part of a Verdugo series and acts as a dual-switch acoustic guitar simulator with a preamp for guitar players! It simulates the acoustic guitar profiles with the best-optimized sound depending on your guitar and pickup type.

Features an IR loader combined with a preamp, which is equipped with 3-band EQ and gain controls to dial in the perfect sound. There is also an additional reverb control effect for 3D simulation. If you want to connect to any additional effect pedal, you can use the Send/Return effect loop and add the Optima Air into the signal chain.

The NUX Optima Air has a unique profile capture function. You can create your own acoustic guitar profile (IR file) by capturing your favorite acoustic guitar's sound. There is an XLR DI output for direct line/mixer connection, headphones output for silent play and auxiliary input to connect a music source! The possibilities are close to endless!
