A great unit, cost effective and plenty of 'preamp' from this preamp.
Devan Brown
You're supposed to use a Phillips head screwdriver to adjust the input level, and the plastic on the adjuster seemed to break immediately.
Erin M Ryan
Very good preamp, used to boost the signal coming from a concert pedal harp, to an acoustic bass amp.

A great unit, cost effective and plenty of 'preamp' from this preamp. I converted a non electric Ibanez Acoustic to 'wired' and I was worried I would not get enough signal, so I was pleasantly suprised when my guitar actually topped my voice in the mix, that had not happened before. I would recommend this unit for any player.

I use this preamp to connect my cello pickup and whatever output I want. It is great. Because the signal from my pickup was very low I had to adjust the preamp's sensitivity, which worked great. The bass and treble controls are great, it has good battery life, and is a a very solid thing. I don't have to worry about dropping it. My only complaints are that it is a bit chunky and expensive. I have no idea how complex this thing has to be inside, but for something that is so simple on the outside, and performs such a simple function, the price is too high, and the product is too big and chunky. But hey, it works well.

The perfect location for the transducer of my instrument yields low volume. Therefore I need a preamp that will boost the signal to match the loudness of my other instruments. This preamp didn't make much difference even when the input pot (on the back of the unit) was all the way to the max. If the job of this device is to merely match impedance, then maybe it's doing its job. I don't know. But if the job of this device is to boost the signal of the transducer, then it should offer a max volume setting that is too loud and we could choose a setting in between that suits us best. But at best it gives a slightly noticeable increase in volume.

This is not a strong amplifier. It is merely a 2-band EQ with a slight loudness increase. It did not do the job for me, so I am giving it the minimum rating.

I've got a piezo pickup for my violin, and needed a preamp in order to record directly into my computer. This one does the job well.

I needed a mandolin pre-amp and couldn't spend a lot of money, so I opted for the Fishman G-II Acoustic Instrument Preamp because I trust the Fishman name from having one of its transducer pick-ups in my acoustic guitar. Sure enough the G-II is simple to use, little to break, and the right tool for the job. I gave it four stars out of five because it is a little bit bigger than I expected it to be. Also, the nine volt battery compartment makes it difficult to install a remove and install a battery, yet too easy to install with the poles connecting the wrong terminals. The battery pull-out strap can also easily block a terminal connection. That said, I heartily recommend the Fishman G-II Acoustic Instrument Preamp for any acoustic instrument.

I play a Martin DXM acoustic guitar and use a Dean Markley soundhole pickup. I just purchased a Fender Acoustasonic 100 amp and didn't feel like I was getting enough "drive" to the amp with my pickup. I received my Fishman G-II 3 days after I placed the order and couldn't be more pleased with the results. Now my 100 watt amplifier sounds like a 100 watt amplifier.

Great results for a very reasonable price.

Best pre-amp I 've ever used, makes my mandolin sound like a much more expensive instrument than it is.
Very easy to use anyone can do it!
