[NAMM] Fishman Loudbox Performer
Fishman introduces the newly redesigned Loudbox Performer acoustic instrument amplifier at 2012 Summer NAMM.
Fishman’s Loudbox Performer features 180 watts of bi-amplified acoustic sound and two mic/instrument input channels that accept both ¼” and XLR sources. Each channel includes Fishman 3-band EQ (shelving bass and treble with resonant-style midrange), feedback-fighting Phase switch and Notch filter controls, and a new dual digital effects section with Reverb, Chorus, Flanger, Delay, Echo and Slap Echo.
The Performer’s 3-way design delivers sound with additional low end to balance the neodymium tweeter and dedicated midrange driver, according to the company. The cabinet design features a built-in 100 tilt with an integrated kickstand design that allows the Loudbox Performer to be tilted back 500 for optimal sound projection.
Features for the Performer include independent channel and effects level controls; 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.
Weighing in at 30 lbs., the Performer also features a Headphone output; a dedicated effects loop; a Footswitch (available separately) to control Channel Mute or Chorus Mute; and 24V phantom power for condenser microphones. The ¼” and XLR inputs include a 10dB pad and clip indicator.
