With the Carl Martin Quattro being som popular throughout the years,
Carl thought to himself. *I Could really use that same sort of high quality
straight forward, simple to use package for my acoustics as well"
The Acoustic GIG begins with Carl Martin's award winning Compressor/Limiter circuit.
Individual controls for compression and level allow for simple and easy operation.
Next, is the well known and highly respected Vintage Style Echo with controls for level,
tone, repeat and tap-tempo, plus the dotted 8th Note' switch for the most
beautiful musical echo.
The reverb is a new Analog/Digital Hybrid, tailored after the vintage-style spring reverbs
so suitable for guitar. A beautiful, shimmering, yet warm reverb with the added bonus
of becoming a more modulation/chorus/reverb texture at higher settings.
The Boost simply allows you to cut though the mix with a crystal clean volume increase
of up to15dB for your solo.No change in your tone,and no increased 'quackiness'
from your piezo pickup,!
To gain maximum EQ shaping, we found it necessary to include a high qualify semi
parametric EQ. We irncorporated this section directly from Cart Martin's famous
3 Band Parametric Pre Amp which allows for the specific shaping of tone from your
guitar and pickup.
To avoid potential feedback, practice has shown the use of a phase inverter circuit to be
very efficient, so of course the acoustic GIG has a Phase Shift switch.
To complete the Acoustic GiG, wa have incorporated a tuner and a overall mule switch.
On the back panel are all the needed connections 1/4" input, unbalanced ¼" output,
high quality balariced XLR outwith groundlift,an insertsection placed right aftor the boost
and before the EQ section, and 9V DC input with a direct DC output if you find the need
for an extra pedal.
