Designed specifically for use with dobros and other resonator guitars, the Jerry Douglas Signature Series Aura Imaging Pedal from Fishman is intended to eliminate the need to mic your instrument by generating an emulated sound of your instrument while miked at various distances using one of sixteen different capsules. In this manner, the pedal circumvents the often-cumbersome process of placing a microphone on your instrument, as well as the restriction of your on-stage movement, and it offers up a much more natural tone than if you were to plug directly into the house PA. Please note that a pickup is required to amplify your resonator guitar and attain the benefits of this pedal.

Fishman Jerry Douglas Overview

Designed specifically for use with dobros and other resonator guitars, the Jerry Douglas Signature Series Aura Imaging Pedal from Fishman is intended to eliminate the need to mic your instrument by generating an emulated sound of your instrument while miked at various distances using one of sixteen different capsules. In this manner, the pedal circumvents the often-cumbersome process of placing a microphone on your instrument, as well as the restriction of your on-stage movement, and it offers up a much more natural tone than if you were to plug directly into the house PA. Please note that a pickup is required to amplify your resonator guitar and attain the benefits of this pedal.

The pedal includes an input Trim pot to optimize the input level for your pickup, as well as Volume and Blend control knobs. The Blend knob allows you to dial your pickup’s natural sound into the signal, mixing it with the timbre provided by the pedal. The real focal point of this stompbox is its Image Selector, which allows you to choose among sixteen different emulations of various microphone configurations. U87s, U67s, Royer 121s, and more are represented here, as are settings intended for use with resonators which have been drop-tuned to more bluesy keys. A Clip/Battery indicator sits on the top left of the pedal, while a Phase switch on the top right helps to eliminate feedback on stage. The footswitch is used to bypass the Aura effect or can be set up to toggle between the effect and a muted output.

The Aura Acoustic Imaging pedal itself provides 24-bit A/D/A and 32-bit internal processing to achieve a pristine digital signal path. Each microphone setting has been tested and approved by legendary guitarist Jerry Douglas, as well as studio engineer Bil VornDick and luthier Paul Beard, who specializes in building resonator-style instruments. The settings captured herein have been created with the aid of Class-A discreet mic preamps and all the microphones listed below in the Features section.
