Fishman Loudbox Performer Amplifier
Fishman re-introduces their Loudbox Performer Amplifier at Summer NAMM 2012, now with more power, better features and bass response in a lighter cabinet.
This redesigned amp replaces the discontinued model of the same name.
This amp is considered as Fishman's most powerful, with up to 180 watts of clear bi-amplified acoustic sound. It features two flexible mic/instrument input channels that work with both 1/4" and XLR. Each channel has a 3-band EQ that features shelving bass and treble with resonant-style midrange. Other notable features include a new dual digital effects section, notch filter controls and a phase switch to help prevent feedback.
Weighing in at an easy 30 lbs, Loudbox Performer now comes in a lightweight cabinet that is easier to carry around. It also has a built-in kickstand, this will let you tilt the amp back for optimal sound projection without using third party amplifier stands.
The amp features a combination of a premium neodymium tweeter and a dedicated midrange driver, controlled by the amp's independent channel and effects level controls. The digital effects section come with Reverb, Chorus, Flanger, Delay, Echo and Slap Echo.
Other hardware features include an auxiliary stereo input with level control plus ¼” and 1/8” connectors; balanced XLR D.I. outputs on each channel and main mix, and Channel Mute to silence both input channels. The amp also provides you with a Headphone output, an effects loop, a footswitch (available separately) for controlling Channel Mute or Chorus Mute; and 24V phantom power for condenser microphones. Finally, the ¼” and XLR inputs both have a 10dB pad and clip indicator.
No pricing information is available yet, but it could be near the price of the previous version of the Loudbox Performer, which is at $699.95.
