The Fishman MX is an onboard preamp that includes controls for Volume and Tone. The Tone control lets you adjust between the natural undersaddle sound with no EQ (flat) and a variable “scooped” tone with emphasized bass & treble and reduced midrange.
The Fishman MX-T is an onboard preamp that includes the same Volume and Tone controls as the Fishman MX, but also includes a built-in Tuner and Phase Switch. The built-in chromatic tuner accommodates all standard and alternate tunings and mutes the output when engaged to allow you to tune the guitar silently. The Phase switch is used to improve bass response at low volume and suppress feedback at high volume.
The Fishman Sonitone is an onboard preamp that includes controls for Volume and Tone. The Volume control allows you to set the volume as high as possible without causing your amp or mixer to distort. The Tone control allows you to reduce the amount of treble in your sound.
