Fishman Aura VT Enhance
Martin exclusively debuts a new pickup and preamp, the Aura VT Enhance acoustic amplification by Fishman, which offers the most advanced technology, Aura Acoustic Imaging, to preserve the unique and pristine acoustic tone of each instrument with studio microphone quality. In addition, the new streamlined Matrix VT Enhance will be offered on select models.
Both the Aura VT Enhance with Acoustic Imaging and the Matrix VT Enhance feature a new bridge plate mounted transducer to add dimension, resonance and body to the amplified tone of the guitar.
With no control holes cut into the side of your guitar, Aura VT and Matrix VT Enhance is discreet and simple to use with Volume, Tone and Enhance Blend controls inside the sound hole and at your fingertips.
The result is a sound that is pure Martin, with more responsiveness to your playing dynamics and touch.
