The Key to Great Acoustic Tone on Stage!
See the crew over at Fishman knows a lot about acoustic guitar pickups, and really just acoustic guitars in general. And they developed this slick "Aura Acoustic Imaging Technology" not too long ago. Basically, they've taken acoustic images of lots of popular guitars out there, and you can download them to this pedal via USB. Get the image that matches your acoustic guitar's model... or try out different ones to see what sounds best. Whatever you do, the goal here is that with the image + your guitar's pickup output, you can get a studio-style guitar sound... like you're in the room with the guitar, versus plugged into a PA. VERRRY dramatic results... it's like having a more expensive guitar onstage or something. The audience is gonna wonder what your trick is.
Straight off the bat, the Fishman Aura Sixteen is loaded with 16 standard Dreadnought images. But, like we said, you can totally go online to the Aura Image Gallery and download other ones - up to 16 can be loaded on your Aura 16 at one time. And the software to do it all is included.
If you take your acoustic tone seriously, the Fishman Aura Sixteen is definitely for you. Fishman even threw in some cool extras, like a phase switch to help you avoid feedback. There's also a nice bypass/mute footswitch, so you can put down your guitar during a break, without having to unplug and blast everyone's ears... or stay plugged in and risk crazy amounts of feedback. Long story short, the Aura Sixteen is an awesome pedal for acoustic guitar.
