    Fishman has introduced the new Platinum Pro EQ and Platinum Stage acoustic preamps, designed to provide very accurate sonic detail with any acoustic instrument. Redesigned from the ground up, the all-analog Platinum Pro EQ and Platinum Stage incorporate discrete, high-headroom Class-A preamps using precision high-speed circuitry to enhance fidelity while lowering distortion.
