I was in a GC 3 weeks ago, none of the stores in the regional data base had a schedule date posted on the computer. But they were in the system anyway, for what that's worth.

They have started actively advertising them with an August 1st release, so that should mean they should start appearing in your guitar store any time now.

Mine on order from GC was "supposed" to ship Aug 5.

They got in over 150 "boxes" of all kinds today, no one knows if mine is among these.

Should know in a day or two, and I'll report in...

Default NOT Yet...

Now Fishman is saying they'll ship no earlier than the first week of September.

Not a surprise with a completely new product...

Will the Fishman be able to handle the +4 dBU line level signal coming from the M3000? In looking at the few specs available, it looks like it's a consumer -10 dBV unit. If so, it will have no headroom and will clip like a dog if your run the Langevin and TC Electronic unit at their nominal +4 dBU operating levels.

The M3000 can be set to -10.

Just turn down the output of the preceding device to below peak input level into the fishman. No?
