OVERVIEW

Class-A analog circuitry makes it a preamp ¦ great sound makes it a Fishman.

Completely redesigned from the ground up, the all-analog Platinum Stage universal instrument preamp delivers incredibly accurate sonic detail for any acoustic instrument.
A discrete, high-headroom preamp combines with precision, high-speed circuitry for pure fidelity and low distortion. Classic Fishman tone controls are combined with a switchable guitar/bass EQ mode, making it more musical for use with bass instruments and more universal for recording and amplifying anything else. Critical performance features “ including adjustable volume boost and balanced XLR D.I. outputs “ are housed in a beautiful, road-ready design.

With an included belt-clip, the Platinum Stage is perfect for mobile instrumentalists, such as mandolin and fiddle players and other instruments which are too small or too precious for anything but a passive pickup. It can also be powered via 48V phantom power, offering complete control over your sound without batteries.

      I have a couple of guitars with no on board EQ. This does the trick and can find the sound I like for each guitar.

        Comments about Fishman Platinum Stage Acoustic Guitar Preamp:

        The price and feature set, as well as the sound, are excellent. The case looks great, but I think they missed the boat insofar as it's supposed to be worn on one's belt but, if you do that, you risk scraping up your guitar on the bare metal, very square edges of the unit. I got a 3' patch cord so I could wear this on my right hip, but the case has such sharp, hard edges that I now have to get a longer cord and wear the unit on my left hip.

        Strange buzz.

        Comments about Fishman Platinum Stage Acoustic Guitar Preamp:

        I returned this product. I found that there was a noise when I plugged in either my electric guitar, electric bass, or acoustic guitar. With some more time and effort it may have been able to find out how not to get the buzz out of the sound. Unless I just got a dud or didn't know the secret to this device I would not recomend

          I play with a large contra-dance band. The pre-amp allows me to get enough volume to be heard on solos without distortion of tone. I plan to use it on acoustic bass also.
