The Loudbox Performer amplifier is capable of cleanly
reproducing the sound of your instrument at very high
volume levels. Prolonged repeated exposure to high sound
pressure levels (SPLs) without protection can cause
permanent hearing loss. OSHA has set guidelines and
specified permissible sound-exposure limits for those who
work in high SPL environments.

Welcome ...
...and thank for choosing the Fishman
Loudbox Performer! Our passion for acoustic
instruments inspired us to create this amp - it
is our sincere wish that the Loudbox Performer
will inspire you as well!
With its unique tri-amp design, the potent
and portable two-channel 130-watt Loudbox
Performer delivers more serious acoustic tone
and volume than any other amp in its class. The
secret to the Loudbox Performer’s sound lies
in its three power amps and three-way speaker
system. This powerful combination results
in higher sound pressure levels and cleaner
acoustic tones watt-for-watt than comparable
acoustic amps.
You’ll find this lightweight and compact amp
is as comfortable in your home studio as it is
onstage. It easily passes the “one-trip” test, for
those times you carry both your instrument and
your amp to the car or into the club.
On the rear panel, good things come in
threes with D.I.s for channels 1 & 2, plus a
third summed Mix-D.I. output (watch your
soundperson smile). For pedal-heads, each
channel has its own effects loop, a tuner out
(Ch.1) and a 1/4” jack for a remote mute switch.
When you want more direct sound onstage, tilt
the Loudbox Performer back on its integrated
kickstand and transform it into a personal floor
monitor.
So what are you waiting for? Grab your guitar
and your Loudbox Performer and go out and
make some music!
If you have questions or comments, please
contact us through the Service and Support
section of our website at www.fishman.com.
The two-channel Loudbox Performer brings
together a wish list of the essential features
you’ve been looking for. The front panel
includes inputs for acoustic instruments, a
microphone and a CD player or drum machine.
Dual EQ sections include bass, midrange and
treble controls for easy, effective tone shaping.
Vanquishing troublesome acoustic feedback is
simple with independent anti-feedback filters
and phase switches for each channel. We also
include five digital effects you can really use:
two halls, two plates, and a smooth chorus.
A convenient mute switch keeps things quiet,
when you tune up or take a break.

Owner's Manual
Getting Started
Here are some basic setup tips to help get you going. To operate the Loudbox Performer safely, please read the
entire manual, especially the Important Safety Instructions above.
If your amplifier has an operating voltage of 120V, plug the provided AC line cord into the back of the amplifier.
If your amplifier operates at 230V, you must supply your own detachable power cord. The cord you supply must
have an IEC-style 320 connector at one end, and a male AC plug appropriate for your area at the other.
1. Find the Power switch (above the rear panel power cord terminal) and switch it off
(left position), then connect the power cord.
2. Plug the Loudbox Performer into an electrical outlet with the appropriate AC voltage.
NOTE: Do not defeat the ground prong on the AC cable; the safe operation of this
amplifier depends on a proper ground connection.
3. Push in the Mute switch and turn on the Power switch.
4. Connect your instrument to the Channel 1 input with a shielded 1/4-inch cable.
5. Play aggressively and raise Channel 1 Gain until Clip LED flashes, then back off the
Gain until no clipping occurs.
6. Set the controls as illustrated below

1. Power
Lights up when the amplifier is powered up. The Power switch is located behind the amp above the AC power
cord terminal.
2. Channel 1 Input
Accepts all types of passive or active acoustic pickups.
3. Channel 2, XLR Input
Plug in a balanced mic here for vocal or for your instrument. The Loudbox Performer makes an excellent mini-PA
or vocal monitor. You may also connect an outboard preamp with balanced XLR out to this input.
Note: If you attempt to plug in both the XLR and Channel 2, 1/4-inch inputs at the same time, the XLR shuts off.
4. Phantom Power Switch
Provides 48V to the XLR input, for a condenser Microphone.
Provides 15V to the ring contact of the Channel 2, 1/4-inch input, for instruments with mini-electret
microphones.
Note: Push the Mute switch in before you turn on the Phantom Power, to avoid a loud “pop.”
For more information on Phantom Power, see page 11.
5. Channel 2, 1/4-inch Input (stereo)
Accepts all types of passive or active acoustic pickups. The ring contact of this stereo TRS input is tied to Channel
1. An instrument with two signal sources (such as pickup and mini-mic) can be routed via stereo cable through
this jack to both Channels 1 and 2 (see page 12 for setup).
Note: Unplug Channel 1 input before you use Channel 2, 1/4-inch input for stereo blending. If you use both 1/4-inch
inputs simultaneously, Channel 1 takes priority and shuts off the Channel 2 ring signal .
With this setup, your pickup and onboard mini-mic can be blended separately. Wire the mini-mic to ring and the
pickup to tip and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Turn on Phantom 15V power if your mini-mic requires it.
Stereo cables are available through your Fishman dealer.
Note: Items 6-14 are identical for both channels.
6. Clip LED
The Clip LED will light when the Gain level is too high and the signal becomes distorted. If the light comes on
when you play, lower the Gain until the distortion goes away.

Owner's Manual
7. 10dB Pad
If you have a high output pickup and the Clip LED comes on at low Gain settings, push this switch in to put your
pickup into a more useable range.
8. Gain
Use the Gain knob to set the level of the signal. If the Clip LED flashes when you play, lower the gain until the
flashing stops. If either channel is unused, set its Gain to 7 o’clock (off).
9. Low
Boost here to add weight to the sound. In general, boost bass at low volumes and flatten it out (or cut) at higher
levels. With the dial set at 12 o’clock, the control is effectively out of the circuit.
10. Mid
This control affects how well the instrument blends in or stands out in the mix. At loud volumes a midrange cut
will achieve a more natural sound. With the dial set at 12 o’clock, the control is effectively out of the circuit.
11. High
Boost highs to add “air” to the sound of the instrument. With the knob set at 12 o’clock, the control is effectively
out of the circuit.
12. Anti-Feedback
If you encounter low-frequency feedback, sweep this control to isolate and eliminate it. Many guitars will benefit
with the Anti-Feedback knob set at about 10 o’clock. The Anti Feedback filter is off at the 7 o’clock position.
To read more about acoustic feedback, see page 11.
13. Phase
Use the phase switch in conjunction with the Anti-Feedback filter to eliminate acoustic feedback.
To read more about acoustic feedback, see page 11.
14. FX Level
Controls the amount of FX in the channel. Generally set this above the Master FX
Level.
15. Digital FX, (select)
These effects have been specially chosen and voiced for acoustic instruments.
16.Digital FX level (Master)
Set the overall level of the Digital FX with this knob. In general set this lower than
the individual Channel 1 & 2 FX Levels.

5. Plate2
17. Master Volume
Set the overall level of the Loudbox Performer with the Master Volume. In general put the Master Volume as high
as possible (2 o’clock to 5 o’clock) to achieve the cleanest sound.
18. Aux In
Plug in a line level stereo audio source such as a CD or MP3 player in here. The 1/4-inch stereo (TRS) Aux Input
mixes the signals to mono.
19. Aux Level
Use this to control the level of the device you plug into the Aux Input. Note that the Aux channel is independent of
the Master Volume and the Mute switch, so you can play pre-recorded music on your breaks. If the Aux channel
is unused, set the Aux level to off.
20. Mute
The Mute switch shuts off the signals from Channels 1 and 2 to the speakers and all the XLR outputs. The mute
does not affect the Aux Channel, the Tuner Out or the effects sends.

1. Mute Foot Switch
Plug a mono, on/off Foot Switch into this jack for remote access to the Mute. . The Mute Footswitch overrides
the front panel Mute switch.
2. Tuner Out
Plug in an electronic tuner here. This output receives only the Channel 1 signal and is independent of the mute,
so you can tune with the speakers and the XLR outs muted. The Tuner Out can also be used as pre-EQ unbalanced
D.I. out for Channel 1.
3. Mix D.I. (Post)
Plug in here when you wish to send signals from both Channel 1 and 2 to a mixing console or a slave amplifier.
This post-EQ output is always ground isolated to prevent ground loop hum.
4. Channel 2 Effects Loop (serial)
Patch an external effect (delay, reverb, chorus) through these jacks. Use a standard 1/4-inch shielded instrument
cable to connect the Channel 2 send to the input of the effect. Connect the Channel 2 return jack to the output of
the effect. The Channel 2 loop is located post-EQ and is compatible with battery-operated stompbox-style effects
processors.
5. Channel 2 D.I. Out (Pre)
You’ll find that this true direct output produces an uncolored signal that is exceptional for recording. Use this
output when you want a flat D.I. signal to go to the board. In this case you leave it to the soundperson or recording
engineer to dial up your tone and effects from the console. This pre-EQ output is always ground isolated to prevent
ground loop hum.
6. Channel 1 Effects Loop (serial)
Patch an external effect (delay, reverb, chorus) through these jacks. Use a standard 1/4” shielded instrument
cable to connect the Channel 1 send to the input of the effect. Connect the Channel 1 return jack to the output of
the effect. The Channel 1 loop is located post-EQ and is compatible with battery-operated stompbox-style effects
processors.
7. Channel 1 D.I. Out (Pre)
You’ll find that this true direct output produces an uncolored signal that is exceptional for recording. Use this
output when you want a flat D.I. signal to go to the board. In this case you leave it to the soundperson or recording
engineer to dial up your tone and effects from the console. This pre-EQ output is always ground isolated to prevent

Power Switch
Lower the master volume or engage the Mute switch before you turn on the amp.
Flip the power switch to the right and it will light, indicating the amp is on.
AC Power
For 120V amplifiers purchased in the USA, Canada and Mexico, plug in the
supplied detachable AC power cable.
For 230V amplifiers purchased outside the USA and Canada, you will need to
supply your own detachable AC cable. This cable must have an IEC-style 320
connector at one end, and a male AC plug appropriate for your region at the
other.
Fuse Holder
The fuse is located within the AC power receptacle on the back of the amp.
Access the fuse compartment with a small slotted screwdriver.
For 120V amplifiers purchased in the USA and Canada, replace the fuse with:
LittelFuse® type 218002 or equivalent 5 x 20 mm, 2A, 250V, time-delay fuse.
For 230V amplifiers purchased outside the USA and Canada, replace the fuse
with: LittelFuse® type 218001 or equivalent 5 x 20 mm, 1A, 250V, time-delay
fuse.
Kickstand
To hear yourself better onstage, use
the kickstand to angle the Loudbox
Performer back like a wedge-style
floor monitor. The kickstand tilts
the cabinet back 45-degrees.
Swing the kickstand up and away
from the amp until it stops. Gently
tilt the Loudbox Performer back
onto the kickstand.
Warning: Do not pick the amp up by the kickstand!
For safe operation, use the kickstand only on solid, level ground.
Do not permit the kickstand to rest on the AC power cord.

Tone Tips
You can find a balanced tone with the Loudbox Performer when you hear how tone changes as the volume rises.
Set Up
For reference, start with the tone controls flat (straight-up, twelve o’clock). In this position, there is no equalization
applied to your sound. Begin at a very low volume and work your way up. As you do, try adjusting the Loudbox
Performer’s tone controls as recommended below.

At intermediate levels, when you need
to raise your voice to be heard over the
music, the human ear is quite sensitive
to midrange. Cut the Mid control to about
ten o’clock, or to your taste. At this level
our perception of bass and treble starts to
catch up to the rest of the tonal spectrum,
so you can back off the Low and High controls slightly for good tonal balance.

At loud levels, when you must shout to
be heard over the music, your ears (and
your audience) will benefit from a deep
midrange cut. Set the Mid dial between
nine and seven o’clock. Our perception
of bass and treble “flattens out” at high
volumes, so you won’t need much, if any
Low or High boost. Set the Low and High
knobs to between twelve and one o’clock.
In many cases you can also improve the
tone at very high volume if you cut bass.
Try setting the Low knob between ten and
eleven o’clock.
Owner's Manual
About Acoustic Feedback
Feedback usually occurs in the lowest octave of your instrument, generally with two notes about a half step apart. The lower type of feedback (cavity resonance) starts when the sound pressure coming out of
the speakers excites the resonant air chamber inside your instrument.
We have found that it is effective to tune out an instrument’s cavity
resonance feedback with the Anti-Feedback (notch filter) in the Loudbox. For acoustic guitar this occurs at G# on the low E-string, or at
about 100Hz. Turn the Anti-Feedback knob to about 11 o’clock to dial
out this resonance. Note that the circuit can be effectively defeated by
moving the dial to the OFF (7 o’clock) position.
Lower
Feedback Range

Feedback
(E to G#)
OFF
Upper
Feedback Range
Phase
(A and above)
The higher range of feedback (top resonance) usually starts about
a half or whole step above cavity resonance of the instrument. Top
resonance feedback happens when the sound pressure coming off the
speakers excites the resonant frequency of the soundboard of your
instrument. For acoustic guitar this occurs at A and above on the low
E-string. Push the Phase switch in and out until you find the position
that subdues top resonance feedback.
Phantom Power FAQs
Q: I have heard 48V phantom power can damage some audio devices. True?
A: Yes, phantom power can damage the following:
1. An unbalanced dynamic mic that has been modified for XLR.
2. A balanced line-level device that is not designed to accept phantom power (ex: some effects processors).
Contact the manufacturer to confirm compatibility.
3. Some older balanced wireless receivers can be damaged by phantom power. Consult the manufacturer of the
wireless unit for compatibility.
4. An unbalanced signal from an instrument preamp or stompbox “modified for XLR.
Important Note: Turn off phantom power if you plug any of the above into the XLR input.
Q: Which devices are safe with 48V phantom power?
A: All the following can be used safely with phantom power:
1. All balanced condenser microphones.
2. All balanced dynamic microphones.
3. Many new wireless units.
4. A preamp/DI designed for phantom-power operation, such as the Fishman Pro-EQ Platinum.

Limited Warranty
Save your original sales receipt. It is your proof of purchase if you require warranty service.
Fishman Acoustic Instrument Amplifiers (“Products”) are warranted to the original consumer purchaser to be free of defects in materials
and workmanship under normal use and service for a period of one (1) year from the date of purchase, with the exception of the speaker
components which are warranted for a period of ninety (90) days from the date of purchase. If the Product fails to function properly
due to defects in materials or workmanship during the applicable warranty period, Fishman Transducers Inc. (“Fishman”), at its option,
will repair or replace the Product, with no charge for labor or materials. This warranty applies only if the Product is sold and delivered
within the U.S. by an authorized Fishman Dealer.
Warranty service and repairs for Fishman Acoustic Instrument Amplifiers are to be made only at an authorized Fishman Service Center
OR at the factory in Wilmington MA. Unauthorized repairs will void this warranty.
Note: For factory warranty service, the customer must prepay freight to Fishman.
EXCEPT AS SPECIFICALLY PROVIDED IN THIS DOCUMENT, THERE ARE NO OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
IN NO EVENT SHALL FISHMAN BE LIABLE FOR LOSS OF PROFITS OR INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR
OTHER SIMILAR DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF ANY BREACH OF WARRANTY OR OTHER OBLIGATION CONTAINED IN THIS OWNERS'
MANUAL. THE WARRANTY CONTAINED HEREIN SHALL NOT APPLY IF THE SERIAL NUMBER IS DEFACED OR REMOVED OR THE
PRODUCT HAS BEEN DAMAGED BY ALTERATION, MISUSE, ACCIDENT, NEGLECT OR USE WITH UNAUTHORIZED ATTACHMENTS.
To obtain warranty service from an authorized Fishman Service Center:
1. The Fishman Dealer where you purchased your amplifier may also be authorized to perform warranty service and should be your
first point of contact. If the Fishman Dealer who sold the Product is authorized to service the amplifier, bring the defective unit to
the service center along with your original sales receipt. If you can’t provide the original receipt, the authorized Fishman Service
Center may charge you for repairs.
If your local Fishman Dealer cannot service the amplifier, contact Service & Support at www.fishman.com and we will recommend
an authorized Fishman Service Center in your area. If there is no service center close to you, return the amplifier to the factory as
described below.
2. Make sure you can duplicate the problem for the Service Center. If you bring in the amplifier for warranty service and the problem
can’t be duplicated by the technician, you may be charged a service fee.
3. Fishman Authorized Service Centers reserve the right to inspect the amplifier before beginning warranty service. Final determination
of warranty coverage lies solely with Fishman Transducers or its Authorized Service Centers.
4. Fishman assumes no responsibility for the quality or timeliness of repairs performed by Fishman Authorized Service Centers.
To obtain factory service:
Amplifiers repaired under warranty at the Fishman factory will be returned to the customer UPS ground freight, prepaid by Fishman to
any location within the continental United States.
Important!
A Product that is returned to Fishman which is not covered by the terms of this warranty will be
repaired and returned C.O.D. with billing for labor, materials, return freight and insurance.
For factory service, you must deliver the amplifier prepaid-freight to Fishman.
1. Contact Fishman Transducers Factory Service via Service and Support at www.fishman.com to obtain a Return Merchandise
Authorization number (RMA number). Products returned without an RMA number will be refused.
2. Pack the amplifier in its original shipping carton. If you do not have the carton, request one from us when you get your RMA number.
Include your shipping address (no P.O. boxes or route numbers). Also include a copy of your sales receipt and a note that explains
how to duplicate the problem. If we cannot duplicate the problem at the Factory or verify the original purchase date, we may, at our
option, charge for parts/labor and return shipping.
3. Ship the amplifier freight prepaid to:
Fishman Transducers Service Department
