Fishman Ellipse Aura

The Ellipse Aura combines Fishman’s most sophisticated onboard preamp with the power of the company’s patented Acoustic Imaging Technology for accurate, true-to-life sound when amplifying acoustic guitars.

A total of four Aura Images can be downloaded into the Ellipse Aura from Fishman’s extensive image library via an onboard mini-USB port so that players can accurately match the pickup to the instrument’s natural tonal characteristics. This allows for a realistic, miked-up sound for Fishman’s Acoustic Matrix undersaddle pickup.

The Ellipse Aura preamp’s tone-shaping capability includes Pickup/Image Blend, Volume and switchable Natural I and Natural II low-frequency tone shaping. Feedback is controlled by a Phase Switch and an Automatic Anti-Feedback device.

The preamp’s ergonomic sound-hole-mounted design puts slider controls at the player’s fingertips to maintain a natural playing position. A patented neodymium magnetic mounting system enables solder-free installation with a variety of size formats that accommodate most round sound holes from 3 7/8 inches (98 mm) to 4 1/8 inches (105 mm) in diameter.

The Ellipse Aura includes a solder-free Acoustic Matrix undersaddle pickup in narrow, wide or narrow/split formats.
