1 Ric12string 2 weeks ago So, something that I found at the NAMM Show which I quite liked, but haven't had the chance to post about here, is a new feature for the Fishman Loudbox Mini amplifier. It is that the amp is now rechargeable. Yep, you read it right. If you are a busker, or would like to amplify your guitar while camping, or play acoustic guitar in areas where you have to run a super long extension cord and want to avoid doing so, this is your deal.First, if you are an acoustic performer, and you aren't yet acquainted with Fishman's Loudbox series of amps, you might want to acquaint yourself with them. They are really tremendous amplifiers with most models boasting multiple channels, onboard effects, phantom power, etc. And, most importantly, they produce the sound of your guitar in a very natural manner. No thinness of tonal quality, and a full spectrum of sound. I use the Loudbox Artist and absolutely love it. In fact, I run my guitar signal through it before going into the board. And it even has a 1/8" aux input for playing your iPod between sets or for playing playbacks during your performance.So, this new rechargeable version ("The Fishman Loudbox Mini Charge") offers some greater flexibility for the performing artist. Fishman says that the amp will deliver 12 hours of use at average volume levels. And, it also has an AC power supply and an optional 12V car charger so that you can charge up your amp on the fly between gigs. It may not be for everyone, but it will be ideal for some.
