Acoustimax

In the four years since BBE last offered its award-winning 386 acoustic preamp, BBE’s design and engineering teams studied the recording and sound reinforcement needs of serious acoustic players. The result is the Acoustimax, a foot-pedal-style (or “stompbox- style”) acoustic preamp which raises the bar for amplified acoustic instrument sound quality.
