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.

Check out this demo video from Fishman:


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.

Product Description

Designed for the singer/songwriter, SoloAmp provides exceptional sound quality and coverage in a wide variety of venues. 220 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 SoloAmp, 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 SoloAmp is voiced for the singer/songwriter, acoustic instruments and vocals are projected with superb depth and clarity.

The Ultimate in Portability

SoloAmp weighs only 25lbs*, ships complete with a padded bag equipped with wheels, and includes a rugged speaker stand. Set up takes less than a minute, with only one trip to the car! And full-digital universal power means SoloAmp is ready to travel anywhere in the world.

Features Performing Musicians Demand

Fishman didn't make SoloAmp this portable by scaling back on features or tone. In fact, they've included all of the award-winning elements of the Loudbox family, and added a unique Monitor feature designed to revolutionize an acoustic duo's ability to hear each other on stage. SoloAmp is also equipped with two mic/instrument channels featuring high-quality preamps, each with 3-band EQ, phantom power, built-in reverb, effects loop, and feedback-fighting notch filter and phase controls.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (34 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "great for my application"
Overall: This thing has amazing sound quality. My Martin DCPA4 and Shure PG 58 sound incredible through it. If you are looking for huge bass out of the box than this unit isn't for you. However if you are like me and need a loud, clean ,very balanced sound then this could be your ticket. I either play by myself or with up to 3 backing vocalist. So I use a small unpowered mixer for vocals only on channel 1 and my guitar on channel 2. I play mostly smaller venues but occasionally up to 300 people. But they are typically more intimate shows without rowdy crowds. Wedding ceremonies , receptions, parties, small clubs and family get togethers that are acoustic shows. I appreciate it's incredibly fast set up time and ease of portability. It allows me to not get stressed about my arrival times and getting there early to do sound checks. Seriously an idiot could get an amazing sound from this thing in 3 minutes. The eq is perfect, the adjustable tweeter level and auxiliary inputs are great. The reverb is very musical. With my gear I have an incredible amount of headroom. I can stand directly in front of it while playing to tweek sound and not get feedback in small rooms. The antifeedback controls work perfectly. I love the height of the unit, as it seems to project clear sound over great distances and the small footprint keeps it from being in the way. I am very satisfied with the workmanship and thought put in today the unit. If I could have one thing it would be a little more bass response. Although it's not an issue while performing acoustically it would be nice for mp3 playback during intervals. But it's solid and it's not an issue for me.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Big Quality Sound In A Little Package!"
Sound: A very warm sounding guitar/PA setup that produces a full tone with plenty of clean bass response. The tone of this system is big in comparison to its light, small size! Feature: The controls have a decent selection of reverbs and EQ. The EQ sounds very musical for guitar. I plug-in my Fishman Aura-equipped Martins or my Gibson J-45 and RainSong DR1000 with Aura Dreadnought Pedal and can EQ the guitar tone using only the systems onboard 3-band EQ. Ease of Use: A versatile system that's easy to transport, setup and use. Quality: The Fishman SoloAmp seems quite well made and is easy to transport in its rolling gig bag. I've read a few comments from users saying they've experienced some ripping of gig-bag straps away from the nylon-woven fabric. I've not yet experienced this and hope not to as I'm very careful with my equipment. Value: Excellent value given its power, portability and tone! Manufacturer Support: Every time I've contacted Fishman about product information or other questions, I've always received quick and helpful responses. The Wow Factor: Definitely a product that'll make a performer smile and feel good about owning and using it. Overall: I could see possibly adding another Fishman SoloAmp to increase sound penetration and dispersion for bigger venues. A single SoloAmp is a very useful system for small- to medium-sized venues.
