Like the rest of the Prefix onboard preamp family, the Prefix Plus-T features ultra-quiet electronics and Volume, Bass, Treble and semi-parametric Contour controls which allow you to isolate certain frequencies and boost or cut them as required. In addition the a built-in chromatic tuner, the Prefix Plus-T adds a Brilliance control and a Phase switch and Notch filter to help fight feedback.
The Fishman Acoustic Matrix under-saddle pickup used in the Prefix Plus-T is regarded as the industry-standard acoustic transducer. A unique proprietary co-polymer sensing material is the secret to its excellent sensitivity and dynamic range. The transducer is fully EMI shielded and is comprised of a multi-layer sandwich of co-polymer strips that run the length of the pickup. The continuous length design allows the pickup to sense the motion of the entire saddle length, for superb string to string balance and sensitivity to both the strings and soundboard.
The Prefix Plus-T preamp offers the tonal variety and feedback-fighting capabilities of Fishman's deluxe Prefix Plus onboard preamp system, with the addition of a high-quality chromatic tuner and a streamlined new look. The preamp module incorporates a unique flip-top compartment for easy battery access. Bass, treble, brilliance and semi-parametric "Contour" EQ let you quickly dial in your personal tone. For real-world playing conditions, a problem solving phase switch and notch filter help keep acoustic feedback under control. A convenient low battery indicator rounds out the preamp features.
In addition to the traditional Volume, Treble and Bass controls, the Prefix Plus-T includes a Contour control that adjusts the level of the frequency specified by the Frequency control, from 250 Hz (low midrange) up to 10 kHz (brilliant treble). This allows you to "dial in" a particular frequency to adjust, rather than having a midrange control that only adjusts a single, fixed frequency.
The built-in digital chromatic tuner accommodates all standard and alternate tunings. For your convenience, the tuner button also acts as a mute switch. The tuner circuit uses the internal battery power, so be sure turn it off when you finish tuning.
