An instrument preamp with effects for the stage-ready acoustic musician.

With a high-quality preamp, dual effects section, tone controls, a compressor, level booster and a balanced DI - the ToneDEQ has everything you need in one box. Its analog signal path goes from end to end – from preamp to output – to give acoustic musicians a richer tonal quality. Even the digital effects are mixed in parallel so they don’t affect the purity of the your acoustic instrument.

Fully Balanced Stage DI
Flexible outputs include a 1/4" amplifier output and XLR DI output for the lowest noise possible. Plus the DI features automatic ground-lifting and selectable pre/post
EQ settings.

Discrete Class A Preamp
With Fishman, you get quality discrete Class A signal conditioning created by a leader in instrument preamp design. The high impedance input is a must for any
passive instrument pickup.

Advanced 4-Band EQ
Legendary 4-band equalizer design provides superior tone control for any acoustic instrument. The variable low cut filter controls sub-bass effects produced by some
passive pickups.

Comments about Fishman ToneDEQ Preamp EQ:

Being a Fishman Loudbox 100 user, and now moving to the ToneDEQ, it's like having having the Loudbox 100 there beside you, plugged in DI to the PA. The separate chorus and reverb are very we'll set up, and the compression is flawless. The tone controls set at 12noon are almost perfect with little twitching required for a full sound. Add in an Aphex to the signal chain, and it's a full house. I use a Godin Nylon string Multiac with the Fishman pre and pickup system, and it's amazing.
Highly recommended. Well done Fishman, I'd be your Australian Sales Rep anytime!
