Gearank Recommendation

The Platinum Pro appeared on our recommended list for Acoustic Preamps from September 2017 until December 2018 when it was out-ranked by other preamps.


Being the most popular supplier of built-in electronics for acoustic guitar manufacturers, Fishman knows how to make acoustic guitars sound good. As such, it is only natural for them to come up with a quality acoustic preamp like the Platinum Pro E, an analog Class A preamp with 5-band Acoustic Guitar EQ, phase control, notch filtering and compression.

It has two footswitches, first of which is a boost switch for upping your volume on specific song parts, while the other one lets you engage the unit's built-in chromatic digital tuner,

Although it's no longer on our recommended list, all in all with Fishman's big brand backing and reputation, the Platinum Pro EQ is a safe pick if you're looking for a reliable acoustic preamp.
