Fishman is pleased to announce that it is currently shipping its hotly anticipated AURA Imaging Pedals. These precedent-setting tone shaping devices employ Fishman's exclusive AURA Acoustic Imaging Technology in a familiar effects pedal format, finally allowing acoustic guitarists to easily and accurately reproduce the sound of their instrument as miked in a professional studio.
Easy to set up and use, AURA pedals eliminate intrusive stage noise and expensive microphone setups, allowing guitarists to achieve incredible recordings at home or in any live performance setting. Designed for use with guitars featuring undersaddle or magnetic soundhole pickups, there are AURA Pedals for each of the six major types of acoustic stringed instruments: Dreadnought, Concert, Orchestra, Jumbo, Nylon, and 12-String.
Each AURA Imaging pedal features 16 Images, selected from their vast online library to cover a wide range of the most popular acoustic guitar models. A deliberately simple and intuitive control set offers Volume, Blend, and Phase allowing simple operation at home or on stage.
AURA uses digital algorithms, developed in Fishman's audio labs, to create an image of the natural sound that microphones capture in a professional studio. This Image, when played through an amp, mixer, or PA, blends with your instrument's pickup to produce an immediate and dramatic improvement in your amplified sound.
Specifically, the Dreadnought model is for standard flat top and full size acoustic models; the Concert is for smaller body guitars like a 00, Concert and Grand Concert; the Orchestra for midsize guitars like OM and Auditorium models; the Jumbo for large body flat top guitars; Nylon for nylon string classical guitars and 12-String for 12-guitars.
For the highest audio quality, each AURA Acoustic Imaging Pedal features 24-bit A/D D/A and 32-bit internal processing, and runs on a 9V battery or AC power adapter.
MSRP for the Aura Imaging pedal is $309.95 and MAP is $199.95.
