Fishman | SA220 Performance System
Use:
The Fishman SA220 Performance System provides exceptional sound quality and coverage in a wide variety of venues. Two hundred and twenty watts of clean, lightweight power drives a line array of six custom high-excursion speakers and a soft dome tweeter. This unique combination delivers incredibly full sound, ultra-wide dispersion, and deeper sonic penetration than the common speaker cabinet. Better yet, the enhanced bass response of the custom-designed speakers means there’s no need for a subwoofer.
It’s a P.A. and an amp. With the SA220, the performer and audience hear exactly the same sound, meaning there’s no need for separate wedge monitors or a combo amp backline.
And because the SA220 is voiced for the singer/songwriter, acoustic instruments and vocals are projected with superb depth and clarity.
SA220 weighs only 25lbs, and comes complete with a padded bag equipped with wheels, and includes a rugged speaker stand.
$999.95 (street price)

Visual Sound, LLC | Route 66 pedal
Use:
Originally designed for use on a worship team, the Route 66 pedal has become a must-have, not only for worship teams but for artists like Jonny Lang and Kings of Leon. If you’ve listened to the All That You Can’t Leave Behind album by U2 (“Beautiful Day,” etc.), you’ve heard Route 66.
With broad flavors of Compression and Overdrive, Route 66 sounds amazing with both guitar and bass. Many players leave the compressor on all the time because it just makes your instrument sound better. The overdrive is smooth and crisp, covering everything from mild boost to cranked amp sounds. You want to sound your best when playing for the King. With Route 66, you will.
