Fill Small to Medium Venues with Premium Fishman Sound

The Fishman SA330x Performance Audio System is a great solution for amplifying acoustic-electric instruments and vocals in small- to medium-sized venues. Powered by 330 watts, this two-way speaker system offers wide sonic dispersion to make sure everyone in the crowd will hear well-balanced sound. Two mic/instrument channels accept instruments and microphones, with phantom power available for condenser mics. Complete with a tripod stand and padded carry bag, and weighing in under 20 lbs., Sweetwater can highly recommend the Fishman SA330x Performance Audio System to any gigging solo musician.

Fishman SA330x Performance Audio System at a Glance:
  • Deep, wide sound field from Fishman's Modified Line Array
  • For wall-shaking bass, add the Fishman SA Sub
  • If you need more inputs, add the SA Expand channel expander
Deep, wide sound field from Fishman's Modified Line Array

The Fishman SA330x leverages Fishman's Modified Line Array technology to deliver clear sound across a wide area. This two-way system combines six 4" midrange woofers with one 1" soft dome tweeter (with its own level control for fine-tuning high-frequency response). It's capable of impressive volume levels, while providing balanced audio throughout any small- to medium-sized room.

For wall-shaking bass, add the Fishman SA Sub

Get the Fishman SA Sub powered subwoofer (sold separately) to add impressive bass performance to your SA330x Performance Audio System. With an 8" high-excursion woofer driven by 300 watts of power, the SA Sub promises "enough low end to fill a 150-person room." An adjustable lowpass filter and polarity reverse switch allow you to fine-tune its response for any application.

If you need more inputs, add the SA Expand channel expander

To add more inputs to your SA330x, the Fishman SA Expand (sold separately) is a better solution compared to typical line mixers. This four-channel expander/mixer accepts mics, instruments, or line-level sources, each with a 3-band EQ and phase control. And it draws power from your SA330x, which means you won't have to manage extra power supplies - very convenient!

Fishman SA330x Performance Audio System Features:
  • Portable PA system for small- to medium-sized venues
  • Modified Line Array design creates a wide, deep sound field for clear audio anywhere in the room
  • 2-way system with 6 x 4" woofers and 1 x 1" dome tweeter driven by 330 watts
  • Capable of an impressive 113dB SPL at 1m
  • Built-in reverb effects
  • 2 mic/instrument channels with XLR/TRS combo inputs
  • 3-band EQ and phantom power available on each input channel
  • High-quality Fishman preamps for detailed, low-noise sound
  • Balanced XLR DI outputs for input channels and main mix
  • Footswitch input for controlling Channel Mute and Reverb Mute (footswitch not included)
  • Phase and Notch filters help prevent feedback
  • Aux Stereo Input makes it easy to connect a music player for set breaks
  • Includes tripod stand and padded carry bag
For small to medium rooms, the Fishman SA330x is a great portable PA.

Updated review

Update from my original review... Fishman and sweetwater came through and supplied the delux carrying bag free of charge and sweetwater sent me the sub pole kit and mixer mounting kit. Sweetwater is great to deal with. Fishman products are excellent. Thanks to Geoff for making it all happen. Full review updated: Sa330x review Nice To start: Sweetwater is a great company to deal with. I have finally come around to the "talk to your sales rep" method of buying. Geoff has helped steer me in a good direction a few times now. I am not an employee or paid endorsee. Check out my group on Facebook under Loose Monkey Band (one of three). Sweetwater is helping me with my negatives (see below) and is very supportive. Now then... On with the review... I owned the original SoloAmp (before it was called the SA220) and loved it. The unit sounded great, was lightweight, and came with a nice roller bag that carried the amp and the stand all in one. Unfortunately I had to sell it. About a month ago I thought I would look for a new one and found that Fishman was making the more powerful and more versatile SA330x so I called Sweetwater and placed an order for the whole new system. When the system arrived last week I immediately took it for a home test run. My impression is that it sounds just as good as the SA220 with some nice extras like an external mixer and the sub woofer. The sub: The sub can really pound the floor when you run a kick drum or bass through the system. It is not needed if you are an acoustic guitarist. I repeat... It is not needed if you are an acoustic guitarist. I tried it with just my guitar and noticed no significant difference with the sub on. The only reason to buy the sub is if you have a bass player or drummer going through the system as well. For this reason I am on the fence about whether or not to keep the sub. The external mixer. While it is very nice and adds 4 more channels I am not a fan of the CAT 5 style cable connection. It is very flimsy. Don't get me wrong... It works really well but kind of makes me wonder why I spend money on really good cables when it is all compressed down to a tiny computer cable. The mixer is a good value, though and the fact you don't need another power cord is a plus. The SA330x itself: sounds great, lightweight, nice mixing options, they've added a nice led light so you can see your controls in a dark room... But they lost a point on the input channels. The sa220 had separate 1/4" and XLR inputs. This unit uses combo jacks like every other Fishman amp out there now. Obviously a cost cutting measure but I prefer separate inputs. Other than that... A great system. Get the deluxe bag, even if it is more money... you will be happy for it. The basic sleeve is, at best, a decent dust cover for home. If you only have the sleeve here is the best way to work around its awkwardness: put the unit on the stand, reach the bag way up over the unit, slide it down onto the unit, then pull the drawstring before removing the unit from the stand. Setup is just the opposite... Put the unit on the stand before removing the sleeve. In summary: Pros: great sound, lightweight, versatile Cons: combo jack inputs, Ethernet cat5/6 cable style external mixer connection

Impeccable sound, and I'm all set up in 3.5 minutes

This unit is EVERYTHING I was looking for in upgrading my solo rig. For about 5 years, I've been playing through a Fender Passport 300, which is certainly a decent unit, but man, this thing.. whoa. Long part of review here, short part at bottom: I timed myself unpacking the unit, all stands, cables.. everything.. it only took me 3:37 to get everything set up with this unit. The deluxe bag is a HUGE plus, as I can fit my di box, all cables, microphone, the sa330x, and its stand in it. And, the bag has wheels! And many handles! One-trip load-ins from here on out. Cannot beat that. I've been playing through the unit in my house for the last several days, and while it sounds incredible in my living room, I was able to really take it on the maiden voyage last night at a noisy, spanky (a lot of plate glass) wine bar, and this thing just blew everyone away. Owner was super happy with the volume, and I could hear it SO clearly. My musician friend was in a corner WAY away from the unit, right at the edge of the dispersion angle, I'd say, and he said he could hear it just fine, and that it sounded great from where he was sitting. I had gains around 9-10 o'clock or so, master was closer to 11/12 o'clock. Now, here's the kicker; I'm running a Blue Encore 300, which generally feeds back pretty easily. I've got a Fishman Rare Earth Blend in my old Gibson acoustic, which also can get a little feedback-ey. None. No feedback at all last night, and I was standing directly in front of the unit. It was truly remarkable. So, these are my remarks. In conclusion: -It's super lightweight. -I can set everything up in 3.5 mins, 4.5 mins or so to tear down and pack everything up.. and I mean everything. -Sound quality is amazing.. acoustic sounds like it's unplugged, just louder, if that makes sense. -Dispersion angle is awesome, and it fills a room without beaming people's faces off. -I had no feedback issues where I really probably should have had feedback issues. -It has little LED lights shining down on the controls! Nice touch. -It makes restaurant/venue owners happy. Thanks, Wayne Davis for always having my back with gear from Sweetwater! 5 stars, AWESOME.

Best bang for the buck!

I started looking into the SA330 after playing through the 220, the previous model. I play in a Flamenco quartet and getting the sound dialed in has been a challenge. I had to haul a PA system to make things sound great, but it was always challenging to have to borrow my wife's SUV to make it happen. The SA330 which I've nicknamed "Tower of Power", solved that issue. It fits in my Two door car and it's so easy and quick to setup and tear down. I have had gigs where I've ran two Guitars, Cajon and two vocal mics and it sounded great. The input expander is a must have, for this type of setup. For the price, you can't find anything that can come close.

Fisahman SA 330

I recently purchased the new Fishman SA330, solo amp, SA Sub and the SA expander. I have own two Sa 220solo amps. But after 7 yrs. of 200 plus show a year and 20k miles a year it was time to retire them. I had great respect for the Fishman products, and the people at Fishman. They have always been good to me and helpful. The Sa 330 has a great sound with my Taylor 814ce, 214ce, and my T5. The Sub adds more bottom end and sounds great. The Expander is very nice, it gives you 4 channels plus the two in the Sa 330 itself. The 330 sounds great without the sub but the sub rounds the sound out. At 300 watts of power big enough for some of your show. 300 watts amp and 300 watts for the sub. My Sweetwater sales person (Ryan) has been very helpful with the purchase. He takes the time to understand what need to the type of music and shows I play. I would recommend this set up for any single act or small group.
Music background: I play around 200 show a year.
