An external parametric 5-band EQ and direct box.
The Para DI is a compact device that really should be in every acoustic guitar player's rig. The preamp enhances any passive or active acoustic instrument pickup and takes the tone to another level of fullness and depth. The studio-quality EQ provides ultimate control over EQ settings, allowing the performer to take the reigns before the signal ever reaches the P.A. system. The tunable midrange band really comes in handy when taming those boxy midrange frequencies, and the tunable notch filter helps you find and eliminate frequencies that are boomy or prone to feedback. And we don't have to tell you about the Para DI's reliability, just look to so many touring acts and sound engineers around the world who choose the Para DI for their stage setup.
