Fishman Loudbox Performer [2005-2011]
Hello everyone,

Well, I got my performance Fishman Loudbox United States ... FYI, there is no button so I had to tinker with 110/220!
Friends of the soldering iron hello ... the little trick is very easy. I explain to those who want to earn around 40% of the purchase price and as I pass by the U.S..
We must remove the block-making behind the amp, you remove the plugs (the one you can either gray and black) and you exchange the small plate epoxy where everything was connected.

Here you epoxy the plate before your very eyes! you notice pretty quickly that there are two riders that correspond to indications 110V and an indication of the jumper if you bought the amp in Europe is 240V.
Unsolder the two riders 110V and place one as in the diagram drawn on the plate epoxy. Once done, you screw it all, you plug in, and there you will discover the performer Loudbox!

A real killer!

What kind of amplification (lamp, transistor ,...)?

Transistor amplifier

What is the power delivered?

130W RMS, cumulative, tri-amplified power with active crossover.
2 boomers 16.5 cm amplified 80W
1 medium 10cm amplified 40W
A 2.4 cm tweeter soft dome neodymium amplified 10W
What connection?

Crane
Two guitar input and the other guitar / mic with 48V power supply
Headphone jack! too hard!

Behind input, output and output DI pedal on both channels. In addition you have a jack for a tuner, an entry ... what to do!

What are the settings, the effects? ...

The cleat! gain, power, low-medium acute, a 48V power supply for the 2nd channel digital effects ... 5 positions (Hall 1 & 2, Chorus, and Plate 1 & 2) and you can even adjust the gain of the tweeter (behind the amp)
There is also a limitation for the entry in case your guitar preamp Péchu too! anti feedback very accurate and works great!

UTILIZATION

The configuration is it simple?

Yes, there's nothing complicated

Do you get a good sound easy?

Yes and I just the little Marshall 50 soloist I can tell you there's nothing to see. The sound is clear, crystalline wish. The power is enormous and half the level the sound was too loud at home! and no sizzling half level This Announces strong well into power without altering quality.
I have a takamine with the preamp tube, and this amp puts great value ... a little out of breath when I put the level of the tube thoroughly takamine but hey as soon as I drop anything ...

I also tested with an SM58 families and surprise, while the microphone dish usually takes a beautiful sound, to believe that it enhances and flatters all that connects it, the top is the reverb on the guitar and microphone with independent control ... strongly that I tested with my BETA 87 A.
In any case what I heard in my voice was very clean and well reproduced ... and if you made the adjustment with the headphone is more accurate and sound quality is superb (AKG 240 ... anyway! )

The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

Here I want to say much like that!

SOUNDS

Right for your style of music?

As amply electro-acoustic he does what is asked

With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play?

I play with a Japanese TAKAMINE 341 DLX
Table massive cedar, mahogany back solid
Sides Mahogany, Rosewood fingerboard and bridge
CTP-1 preamp (tube preamp)

What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "bold ",....)?

See above

What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?

There's all going well!

OVERALL OPINION

How long do you use?

One week is not much but hey I've spent more time in one week than two years on my 50 Marshall soloist!

What is so special that you like most and least?
The super and mega Christalin his own, the beautiful rendition of the guitar louder!

Have you tried many other models before buying it?

I tried the Loudbox 100W and I already fallen on his ass ... if AER and good Roland 90W but even if they are also excellent I prefer the sound of the Fishman ... and then the U.S. price level is mega interesting then fishman the other two much less. And then I had a super good news when I changed the voltage of power supply in 10 minutes! If I did, you can too!

How would you rate the quality / price?

Bin 990 Thomann, 1200 in France and the U.S. is $ 799 on the value for money is more interesting but hey it's even more than a 990 EAR!

With experience, you do again this choice? ...

I do it again whenever you want! Maybe I would I'll go hot and irritating my ears with the pro Loudbox 600W 31cm with a beautiful but that it would be folly! $ 1000 and more!
Especially since the 130 already great slap and only 16KG this is great for my back when I'm old.
I said nothing about the mouth of the beast but even if the amp is assembled in China, the quality of finish is great and it is not enough classroom and brown, golden like all the acoustic amps ... finished the amp old!
