...excerpt from the fishman Website - ''Fishman's lightest and most portable amp yet, Loudbox Mini delivers the tonal quality that has made the Fishman name the standard for great acoustic sound. The Loudbox Mini packs 60Watts of clean acoustic power, and has two channels featuring Fishmans legendary preamp and tone control designs, plus digital reverb and chorus for the instrument channel and reverb for the microphone channel. The Loudbox Mini sports an MP3 input and balanced XLR D.I. output a must for jamming along and capturing your performances.
