BBE is at the forefront of audio technology which allows amplified music to sound more natural, and the latest generation of BBE High Definition Sound technology is a vital element to the new Acoustimax acoustic preamp. In the four years since BBE last offered its award-winning 386 acoustic preamp, BBE’s design and engineering team studied the serious acoustic player's needs for both recording and sound reinforcement. The result is Acoustimax, a foot-pedal-style (or “stomp-box-style”) acoustic preamp which raises the bar for amplified acoustic instrument sound quality. Acoustimax is packed with features including three band, recording-console quality eq with a sweepable mid -range band, low frequency notch filter, phase reversal, ground lift, line level out, dedicated tuner out and TRS effects loop, even a pre/post switchable-balanced DI output with pad. Other features include hard-wire bypass, non-slip rubber bottom and the included 12v power supply.
