|Potent and portable, Fishman's Loudbox 100 provides over 100 watts of power from a sophisticated bi-amped design for acoustic guitar amplification. To be launched at winter Namm show 2006, the Loudbox 100 is designed for acoustic players who need maximum power, projection and tone shaping in a highly compact and portable format.
A two-channel amplifier, the Loudbox 100 is conservatively rated at 100 watts (RMS cumulative) and can produce 114dB SPL (1 meter) from a bi-amped configuration with active crossover and master volume. The amplifiers' instrument channel features tone shaping with shelving style bass and treble, resonant midrange, and notch filter and phase switch for feedback control. A 1/4" input with gain control, 10dB pad and clip indicator is complemented by a dedicated effects loop and XLR D.I. output.
A versatile instrument/microphone channel includes 48V phantom power for condenser microphones along with shelving bass and treble, notch filter, phase switch, and a balanced XLR input and 1/4" input which is tip/ring/sleeve “stereo” to provide onboard blending for mic/pickup systems that support the stereo format. Other features comprise a full complement of digital effects (hall 1 & 2, plate 1 & 2 and chorus, with channel and master levels), an effects loop with level control and XLR, an auxiliary stereo input with level control, and D.I. output. It also features stereo input and balanced XLR outputs for instrument channel, inst/mic channel and main mix D.I. output, tweeter level control, tuner output, mute control for both channels, and a remote mute control footswitch.
Measuring only 16" x 13.5" x 11.5" (40.5cm x 34cm x 29cm) and weighing in at 23 lbs. (10,5 kg), the new Loudbox 100 will be introduced at winter Namm, booth #4258.
