The acoustic tech specialist prepares to make its Neo-Buster ‘feedback fighting’ soundhole pickup and ToneDEQ preamp available to all dealers
ishman is making its ToneDEQ Acoustic Instrument Preamp and Neo-Buster Soundhole Pickup Feedback Buster available to all of its dealers beginning in January 2015. The ToneDEQ Acoustic Preamp with effects combines a preamp, dual effects section, tone controls, a compressor, level booster with a balanced DI in one device, and the Neo-Buster combines Fishman’s Neo-D Single Coil pickup with a feedback-fighting soundhole cover.
The Neo-Buster combines Fishman’s Neo-D Single Coil pickup with an integrated sound hole cover that reduces the build-up of energy inside the soundhole that often leads to uncontrollable ‘howling’ during high volume situations. This single coil magnetic soundhole pickup shares the same neodymium magnet structure as the Rare Earth pickup. Its low profile, high impedance design requires no battery and can be installed in most standard acoustic guitars with no alterations.
Fishman’s ToneDEQ will retail at $461.46 (approx. £299) and the Neo-Buster will be $99.95 (approx. £59). For more information, go to www.fishman.com
