Solved all my problems :)

TheMightyAtom, 28.09.2018
I use this for live acoustic playing together with an Epiphone EJ-200CE.

I first became aware of the Aura technology from demos of very expensive Martins. Seemed like a great way to get condenser mic sound on a stage, without a mic.

Does exactly what is says on the tin, and more. From looking at YouTube reviews, I was expecting to find one tone that matched the guitar, and I did that (Gibson J200), but experimenting I found many other very usable tones from otherwise unrelated guitar body types.

When boosting the bass, which is one of the main effects of this pedal, I did experience feedback, which the feedback eliminator dealt with painlessly and effectively.

So I'm happy to have the sound of a much more expensive guitar, mic'ed with even more expensive microphones, and with no feedback, except on the occasions I want it :)

I'd say if you're looking for a great live sound, consider investing less on the actual guitar (the tone not being fully captured by the piezo anyway) and add one of these beauties to your rig. The combination of compressor, EQ, feedback suppression and the amazing AURA guitar images in one pedal is superb, and almost half the price of building *just the AURA* into your guitar.
I only use the tuner as a mute button, preferring the EJ-200CE's onboard tuner.

Acoustic microphone clarity in a stomp box!

Phil3994, 16.05.2016
I was not really convinced that this gadget would help me get a more realistic acoustic sound from my Godin electric Oud.. but even without an exact instrument match to any of the 128 pre-set images I still was able to find an acoustic image that worked really well by using the Image Wizard section on the Fishman image download website.. which gives you a choice of various body shape/size, top and bottom tone wood options etc. to select a choice of images that have tonal characteristics similar to your own unlisted instrument.

It takes quite a while to go through the image choices available, but if you have the patience, clean ears and a bit of luck your acoustic instrument sound could be transformed from a clippy standard undersaddle pickup tone to a much richer and warmer acoustic quality tone.

The other features on the Spectrum DI are all very useable and of a high quality, plus a great DI out signal!
