- Effective EQ
- Improve your pickup's dynamics and clarity
- Pro-quality I/O features
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.
