Fishman acoustic blender: 2-channel instrument preamp Chances are if you're looking at this you'll know what it is- you'll also know they are now discontinued and increasingly hard to find.In short, this preamp allows you to combine a pickup and microphone (or second pickup) and control the blend, with gain/trim, bass and treble controls, phase reverse for each channel, plus bass trim and switchable phantom power for the mic channel, master volume, plus output mute.The connections are where this unit really stands out- input on stereo or 2 mono jacks, send & return jacks, jack and XLR outputs for each individual channel AND the mix. Headphone out on the front panel.Power via 9v battery (compartment in the top of unit, battery check on the front) or via AC adaptor (not included)- it takes a 9v centre- adaptor- ie the standard Boss-type. Comes with a mounting for mic-stand so you can access controls during a gig (see picture- mic stand not included!)For more details see manufacturer's info here , and user guide here. I used this when playing at Church and only a few outside gigs. While the features are really comprehensive, it's more suitable for a combination of piezo undersaddle pickup and mic than the passive magnetic/ soundboard transducer combination on my guitar, and as I have far too many acoustic instrument preamps, this has to go. It's fully operational and in great condition.
