Regarding the electronics, the beating heart of this series is the Fishman Flex Blend system: formed by piezo and internal condenser microphone, this system allows you to grasp every nuance of the guitar thanks to the possibility of gradually adding the signal picked up by the microphone to the piezo signal. , by means of a “blend” potentiometer. Among the controls, in addition to the output volume and the blend, there is a tuner on the display (activated by pressing the volume potentiometer) and an EQ control that works in "mid-scooped" mode: kept to a minimum the signal is not equalized ( flat), increasing gradually reduces the mid frequencies in favor of low and high frequencies, very convenient for obtaining a sound “ready” for the mix. In the event that the guitar should have feedback problems, a very common situation in the acoustic field, it is possible to invert the phase by pressing the EQ potentiometer.
