Acoustic Image FLEX PreampThe mad scientists at Acoustic Image are at it again. Never content to rest on their past successes, Rick Jones and company are constantly looking for new, better, more efficient ways to help acoustic instrumentalists be heard in the best voice possible. They've continually re-developed their innovative amplification systems over the past decade and a half, and each new version features new, smart features.

Their newest development is the convenient FLEX modular system. With two convenient components - a mic-stand mountable 2-channel preamp and a compact, 2x10 tri-amped powered speaker - that you can combine into a "combo" (or use independently), you have a powerful modular SYSTEM that can handle most any professional situation.

The heart of the system is the brand new FLEX Preamp. Building upon the time-tested design of the previous Acoustic Image combos and heads, it adds some new features and specifications that you're going to love - and it's a brand-new preamp-only design that you can conveniently mount on a mic stand, or sit on a tabletop, for easy access to the controls.

Acoustic Image FLEX PreampIt has a host of inputs and outputs - with effects loops and separate line-outs for each channel, and a master DI output, as well as a new "pseudo-stereo" output for when you use stereo effects - you've got all the same flexibility as the original Clarus amp. But when used together with the FLEX Powered Speaker, the units connect with a single CAT5 network cable for simple, flexible connectivity, including the power for the preamp. So you don't need to use the power adapter (which is included if you wish to use the preamp without the FLEX powered speaker cabinet). And it means that you can easily and affordably get a bunch of different cables for a variety of different gig situations, with a quick trip to the local office supply store (heck, they even sell network cables at most 7-Eleven stores!)

The new FLEX preamp also includes some new features. The ¼" (instrument) and XLR (mic) inputs are now on separate jacks, rather than the combo jack - and they're independently buffered. So you can even plug in up to four different things (2 mics and 2 instruments) and get quality signal; you won't have as much control over blend, though, unless the instruments have their own output volume controls (like a keyboard, for instance.) And the EQ has been expanded from 3 bands to 4; carefully selected lo-mid and hi-mid controls provide a lot more control over your tone. All of the buttons on the face of the preamp now illuminate when they're active, so you never have to wonder whether the button is "on" or "off," even on a dark stage. And the built-in effects have been overhauled - the rarely used effects have been removed, leaving you the useful reverb, delay, and new "both" setting - as well as a new "rate" knob for more control over the settings of the effect.

Acoustic Image FLEX PreampAll of this, packed into a small, lightweight (under 2.5 lbs) unit that can be mounted atop a standard mic stand right in front of you onstage.
