WNAMM07: Onboard Toneshaping For Acoustic Guitars


Fishman say that the new Ellipse Aura combines their most sophisticated onboard preamp with the power of the company's Acoustic Imaging Technology for exceptional accuracy and true to life sound when amplifying acoustic guitars.
Up to 4 Aura Images can be downloaded into the Ellipse Aura from Fishman’s extensive Image library via an on-board mini-USB port so that players can accurately match the Image to the instrument's natural tonal characteristics. They say that this allows for incredibly realistic miked-up sound for Fishman’s popular Acoustic Matrix undersaddle pickup.
The Ellipse Aura preamp's extensive tone shaping capability includes Pickup/Image Blend, Volume and switchable Natural I and Natural II low frequency tone shaping. A Phase Switch and Automatic Anti-Feedback device control feedback.
The preamp’s ergonomic soundhole-mounted design puts slider controls at the player's fingertips to maintain a natural playing position. A neodymium magnetic mounting system enables easy, solder-free installation with a variety of size formats that accommodate most round soundholes from 3 7/8� (98mm) to 4 1/8“ (105mm) in diameter.
Ellipse Aura includes a no-hassle, solder-free Acoustic Matrix undersaddle pickup in narrow, wide, or narrow/split formats.
