The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Used by musicians such as Slash, Eric Clapton and The Killers the Fishman Aura Spectrum DI greatly enhances your acoustic instruments amplified tone. Powered by a 9V battery (not included) or a power adaptor, the Fishman Aura Spectrum DI preamp uses digital algorithms to create images of the sound captured by stuido mics and blends it with the unsaddle or soundhole pickup on your acoustic guitar to create a realistic yet enhanced amplified sound when you play through an amp, mixer or PA.

Plug in to the preamp using a standard 1/4" or XLR shielded instrument cable and tune up with the chromatic tuner. You can use a tuner footswitch to turn the output off when doing this if you need to tune on stage, mid-gig. Adjust the input trim, select an image with the user-friendly Image Bank slider then blend to taste. If feedback starts, simply kill it using the phase switch.

The included Aura Gallery Image software gives you access to an expanding list of images recorded using professional studio mics and recording techniques. The sounds, taken from a variety of instruments, are versatile and realistic acoustic sounds for use on stage or in the studio.

The Aura Spectrum DI also features a 3 band EQ, one knob compressor, 3 notch auto feedback suppression, effects loop and balanced XLR DI output. All of this is housed in an elegant, durable metal case so it can handle gigging or regular studio use.
