This Onstage Acoustic Essential Puts EQ, Preamp, DI and Feedback Control in oneThe Fishman Pro-EQ Platinum Preamp/EQ/DI gives players an all-in-one stage tool that's perfect for small stages and large venues alike. The Pro-EQ Platinum includes easy-to-use controls that let you quickly dial in a natural acoustic sound that fills any room, without fear of feedback. This unit includes an effective 4-band EQ, feedback-fighting notch and phase controls, and Fishman's exclusive "Voltage Doubler" technology, as well as their Smooth acoustic compression circuit. You also get a balanced XLR out, XLR pre/post EQ switch, and a ground lift switch on the Pro-EQ Platinum.
Fishman Pro-EQ Platinum Preamp/EQ/DI at a Glance:
The Pro-EQ Platinum's four-band equalizer is modeled after Fishman's gig-proven Prefix Plus onboard preamp, with sliders that are assigned to just the right frequencies for acoustic equalization. A semi-parametric midrange control employs a "constant Q" filter for more precise and consistent tone adjustments. Also borrowed from the Prefix design are feedback fighting phase and notch controls.
Improve your pickup's dynamics and clarity
The Pro-EQ Platinum features Fishman's exclusive "Voltage Doubler" technology, which improves both the dynamics and clarity of any pickup. Another innovation utilized in the Platinum is the Smooth acoustic compression circuit. This control removes the harsh percussive edge from your amplified sound when you play hard.
Pro-quality I/O features
Sound engineers will appreciate the Pro-EQ Platinum's pro-quality features, which include a balanced XLR out, an XLR pre/post EQ switch, plus optional 48-Volt phantom power operation. This means no more batteries or wall warts if your mixer has phantom power. Unique to the Pro-EQTM Platinum is a hum-killing ground lift switch that works even when phantom power is applied to the preamp.

by Darren O'Neill from Annandale, NJI use this as an interface between my classical guitar pickup (a Sony ECM-44 lav mic clipped on to the edge of the soundhole - inside the guitar - treble side - pointing down toward the bridge) and a ... read more [+]Roland Mobilecube. The results are excellent. It's an all battery powered set up. The Fishman takes a 9v and the Mobilecube takes 6AA. The Sony lav mic takes 1AA.

Music Background: Pro musician and educator
One of the best things about the Fishman is that it has a notch filter. Really cuts back on the "woofiness" along the bass strings. There's decent EQ (I leave it all set flat) and a brilliance slider (pumped up slightly).
I can't stand the sound of under-the-saddle pickups in classical guitars. And I don't like to set up a mic stand and external mic for gigs. For weddings, church ceremonies, etc. - any place you need battery powered amplification with a a true sound - this is the way to go. It's not terrifically loud, bear in mind. But loud enough in the right kind of situation.
I couldn't go directly to the Mobilecube with the Sony lav mic with any decent results (going into the mic input on the Mobilecube). Feedback problems, etc. This is where the Fishman really shines. It enables me to control the signal before it reaches the Mobilecube. In this way, I go from the Fishman into the line input on the Mobilecube. Much louder and purer sound.
All you classical guitarists out there who gig, take note! You need this DI! close [-]
