Combining the company's most sophisticated onboard preamp with the company's Acoustic Imaging Technology, the Fishman Ellipse Aura is now shipping and available.
The Ellipse Aura is a state-of-the-art onboard preamp that blends the sound from your guitar's undersaddle pickup with Fishman's studio-mastered Aura Images — digital algorithms created using the world's most popular guitars and studio microphones. The result is an exceptional true to life, studio-quality sound in any amplified performance.
Up to 4 Images can be downloaded from Fishman's Aura Image Gallery software (included) via an on-board mini-USB port.
The Ellipse Aura also features easily accessible Pickup/Image Blend, Volume and switchable Natural I/Natural II low frequency controls. A Phase button and Automatic Anti-Feedback switch let the player quickly and easily control feedback.
The preamp's ergonomic soundhole-mounted design puts slider controls at the player's fingertips to maintain a natural playing position. A patent-pending neodymium magnetic mounting system enables easy installation and accommodates 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.
MSRP for the Ellipse Aura is $399.95 and MAP is $299.95.
