Building on the success of its SoloAmp all-in-one portable PA — reviewed in PAR last year (read our full review here) — Fishman’s new Loudbox Mini weighs in at 20 lbs but delivers 60 watts of clean, balanced Fishman sound in a cost-conscious package (street price: $299.95).
Fishman’s lightest and most portable amp to date, the Loudbox is equipped with two channels and Fishman’s preamp and tone control designs. Loudbox also includes digital reverb and chorus for the instrument channel, and reverb for the microphone channel. The Loudbox Mini also features an mp3 input and balanced XLR D.I. output. The Instrument channel features include 3-band EQ with low, mid, high tone controls; a Reverb level control; dual-function Chorus and a feedback-fighting Phase switch; a quarter-inch input for active and passive pickups along with an eighth-inch auxiliary input; a D.I. output and a balanced XLR output. The Microphone Channel features an XLR input for dynamic mics; 2-band EQ with low and high tone controls and a Reverb level control.
