Nearly 10 years after its initial launch, Fishman’s Loudbox family continues to enjoy widespread acceptance and the leading position in acoustic guitar amp sales for 2012 based on an impressive feature set, superlative sound and exceptional value in terms of quality and build for the money.
According to MI SalesTrak, Loudbox, spurred by the popular Mini and Artist models, continued its No. 1 overall position in the acoustic guitar amp category by a wide margin with a 27.5% share of unit sales––nearly 20% more than the next brand. The Loudbox Mini also maintained its lead as top selling acoustic amp model with a 19% unit share while the Loudbox line led all category unit sales by price point as well. Loudbox Artist ranked #2 best selling amp at over 7%.
The Loudbox Mini and Artist amps are currently being used by Chris Traynor of Bush, Trampled by Turtles, Jerry Douglas, Rich Robinson of the Black Crowes, Wolf Marshall, The Decemberists, Monte Pittman and folk legend Happy Traum, to name a few.
Discussing Fishman’s leadership in the acoustic amplifier category, Chief Operating Officer Jason Cambra stated, “We are very pleased with the ongoing acceptance and popularity of Loudbox by artists and players at every level, reflected in the dominant sales figures for the line over the last few years.
“From the Loudbox Mini to the Artist and new Performer models, the line continues to evolve in terms of features and performance, all of which explains why it is the industry leader in acoustic guitar amps and a major component in the growth and success of the Fishman brand.”
