Fishman amplifiers

Post by tobymcwilliams » Sun Oct 07, 2018 8:12 pm

Has anyone tried Fishman amplifiers with a classical guitar? How did you like it? Did you use a microphone on the guitar or a pickup, or both? Thanks!

I use a Schertler Giulia Y or a Genelec 8020 (with a Headway EDB2 preamp) with a DPA 4099g if I need to amplify my classical to bring it to the level of a grand piano. I don't like pickups but if you need to go louder on stage than that, a microphone is going to give you headaches. Btw, I also I didn't like any of the Fishman amps I've tired.
