A feature-loaded pre-amp/DI.

The Fishman Pro EQ Platinum is an acoustic guitar preamp that utilizes a 4-band equalizer modeled after the versatile Prefix Plus. Each band is assigned to just the right frequencies for acoustic equalization. Also borrowed from the Prefix Plus design are feedback-fighting phase and notch controls. An innovative "smooth" compression circuit has been added to subdue explosive high frequencies when you strum hard or snap the strings. The Fishman Pro EQ Platinum also features a balanced XLR output, allowing it to be powered by phantom power. The ground lift feature is designed to function even when phantom power's applied to the preamp.

      Comments about Fishman Pro EQ Platinum Acoustic Guitar Preamp:

      Excellent unit, especially for the price. I play in a 2-guitarist band, at a fairly loud stage sound level, and switch between a Les Paul electric and an Applause acoustic, using the same single channel amp. This device allows me to do so without changing any of the settings on my amp, even bringing the volume level of the acoustic up to the hot level of my electric's humbuckers. And oh yeah, NO hum or feedback, even when standing directly in front of and facing the amp! Plus, the sound shaping controls allow me to dial in a setting that really allows my acoustic to cut through the stage mix and be heard. Just takes a little tweaking the first time you use it. Wonderful tool for a working musician.

      This is a fantastic pre amp

      By DacDacDylacPac

      from Indianapolis, IN

      Comments about Fishman Pro EQ Platinum Acoustic Guitar Preamp:

      I've been looking for a decent pre amp for years so I could play my acoustic with the full band. It's a heavy alternative sound and it can be very difficult to control the feedback, even with a feedback buster in the sound hole. This pre-amp solved all my problems in one easy step, also makes it sound good coming direct to the board, and cleans it up before it hits the amp. Signal is clean and crisp now and sounds amazing.
      Notch Filter is excellent, EQ is perfect, Rolls the low bass off if needed for a full band mix, sounds great plugged in to a Roland AC90 and run to the board.
      Feels sturdy enough. This is not a stomp, so keep it off the floor....
      Worth every penny.

      The Standard For Acoustic Preamps

      Comments about Fishman Pro EQ Platinum Acoustic Guitar Preamp:

      Honestly, this thing sets the standard that all acoustic preamp maker should be aspiring to. Great build, great sound, great feature set, and great value. Get one,
      This unit has EQ, compression, a notch filter, ground lift, phase switching, doubles as a DI box, and can run off of phantom power. Crazy feature set in ANY price range.
      Heavy. Solid. Very nice build. I have no issues with the qualty. Sounds great! Will get your passive electronics up into the mix, and will allow you to dial in a really nice sound no matter what your playing style. No need for a DI box in your chain if you have this.
      Incredible value. Half of the features, at this price, would be a great value.

      The answer to being heard

      By JourneyChurchNC

      from North Carolina

      Comments about Fishman Pro EQ Platinum Acoustic Guitar Preamp:

      The Fishman Pro EQ Platinum Acoustic Guitar Preamp was my solution to being heard both in the house (audience) and on stage through my amp.The many contols on the preamp allow me to be heard with the volume and gain controls, the eq allows me to fine to the tone. I can also smoooth the edges with the smooth control and rid any feedback without sacrificing sound quality.The ground/ lift switch was my solution to remove the hum that came through the house xlr after plugging in my amp on stage to this preamp.

      Cool Toy!!!

      By Alcoholic Amongus

      from Charlotte, NC

      Comments about Fishman Pro EQ Platinum Acoustic Guitar Preamp:

      It's not a MOTU pre-amp but it works good enough in live instances to help beat the nasty eq curve in the pa's graphics... Nice compression effect from the smooth knob as well, really gives that swelled-up SPL effect on stage...

      Best choice

      By God's Fingers

      from Wisconsin

      Comments about Fishman Pro EQ Platinum Acoustic Guitar Preamp:

      I love it, for functionality and sound. I use it for my EJ200 which allowed me to install a Martin Slimline 332 under the bridge pickup and didn't have to cut up the guitar, preserving the large clear sounds that a 200 is good for. Just drilled out the strap stud and have a stud/plug combo.The multiple outputs let's me use the 1/4 to feed into my in ear monitor and the XLR goes to the house sound along with powering the unit.The EQ and brightness (along with the Martin) bring back the crisp acoustic sounds typical damped by many pickups. Though no replacement for soloing at a good mic, this unit helps make the acoustic premo in the band.

      I could use a dozen of these they are great

      By Timothy D Lynch

      from Fresno, CA

      Comments about Fishman Pro EQ Platinum Acoustic Guitar Preamp:

      Great on Acoustic Guitar, Dobro, Mandolin, Electric Guitar 6 and 12 sting, Lap Steel, Bass Guitar, harp and Vocals.I find with this unit I can get a fuller sound on electric instruments. A brighter sound that jumps out at you on acoustic instruments. A funky edge on your bass. My lap steel's sound is so good with this that I wouldn't want to play without it.

      fantastic!

      By Josh-JrM1w

      from Philadelphia, PA

      Comments about Fishman Pro EQ Platinum Acoustic Guitar Preamp:

      I love this unit. I have two of them. I use one for the guitar, and one for the cellist and plays with me. It works fantastically for both! I actually even use one as a splitter, so I can run 1 through effects and leave one as a static acoustic guitar. Works for both! Highly, highly recommended
