A Compact and Portable Line Array
The Fishman SoloAmp SA220 is what is known as a Compact Line Array. Have you ever noticed those giant stacks of speakers suspended from the rafters, above the stage of one of those huge arena rock concerts? Those are known as line arrays, and they operate in such a way to give every audience member in attendance the same tonal quality and volume.

The 25-Pound PA System
The Fishman SoloAmp SA220 acts under the same principles, albeit in a much more lower-back-friendly package (the unit weighs in at 25 pounds, and fully packed with case and stand only tips the scale at 35 pounds). With that in mind, feel free to sell your cumbersome and confusing floor wedge monitors, because the Fishman SoloAmp SA220 gives the performer accurate, clear monitoring, all from the same set of drivers that your audience is hearing!
Six-Speaker Line Array
Under the hood you'll find six custom-designed four-inch high-excursion speakers and a single one-inch Neodymium soft dome tweeter with its own level control. Together, these elements deliver an incredible field of depth, and warmth, belying the modest size of the SoloAmp SA220. With 220 watts of startling, you'll wonder why you ever even thought about lugging around a larger PA. Listen to a SoloAmp SA220 in person before you decide you miss your old subwoofer -- the bass and low mid frequencies pumped out by this Fishman really need to be heard to be believed.

Two XLR or 1/4" Channels for Mics or Instruments
The Fishman SoloAmp SA220 offers two independent microphone or instrument channels, with independent 3-band equalization and gain controls, low-noise/high-headroom preamps, switchable phantom power, and 10 dB pads.
Built-in Reverb, Plus Feedback Filters
If you need to add a little extra depth and vibe to your performance, each channel also has independent reverb pots to control one of four selectable reverb types. Feedback is a problem for any performer on any stage, and Fishman knows it, which is why they've built nasty-feedback-squashing Phase and Notch filters into the SoloAmp SA220.
FX Loop, Tuner Out, Aux Stereo Inputs and More
Fishman hasn't left anything out of this design, really gearing the SoloAmp SA220 toward the singer, acoustic guitarist, and electric keyboard player, even including an effects loop, an aux stereo input with level control for backing tracks or MP3 player use, balanced XLR DI outs for both channels and main mix, a footswitchable channel mute, and even a tuner output.
Stand and Rolling Carry Bag Included
Pack the 25-pound Fishman SoloAmp SA220 and stand (let's not gloss over that -- a free stand is a really sweet added treat) into its included carry bag with built-in wheels and cart the SoloAmp SA220 along to your next few gigs at the local underground bookstore -- without the need to rent a PA system or pay a sound engineer. The Fishman SoloAmp SA220 will pay for itself sooner than you can say First Edition Dostoevsky.
