The amplifier everages the acknowledged design of the Loudbox 100, yet packs more power and enhanced features into a lightweight and portable package. 120 watts of clean, bi-amplified acoustic power, two versatile input channels featuring Fishman's legendary tone and feedback-fighting controls, plus a new dual effects section make the Loudbox Artist a highly portable acoustic instrument amplifier.
