Nashville, TN––The newly redesigned Loudbox Performer acoustic instrument amplifier introduced by Fishman at Summer NAMM 2012 offers increased power, improved bass response and enhanced features in a lighter, more efficient form factor.
Fishman’s most powerful amplifier, the Loudbox Performer features 180 watts of clear bi-amplified acoustic sound and two flexible 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 clear, full-sound with additional low end to balance the premium neodymium tweeter and dedicated midrange driver. The lightweight cabinet design features a built-in 100 tilt with an improved, integrated kickstand design that allows the Loudbox Performer to be tilted back 500 for optimal sound projection.
Enhanced 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 an easy 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.
