The Federation’s negotiations with its bargaining partners, whether on an industry-wide, single-, or multi-employer basis, are a never-ending process. Other than contracts with touring producers such as the Broadway League, most of our negotiations seek improvements in compensation and working conditions when musicians are engaged to perform electronic media services either streamed or broadcast live, or captured for analog and digital distribution.
Fishman’s Platinum Stage and Platinum Pro EQ acoustic preamps provide accurate sonic detail in a clean and sturdy design. Their precision, high-speed circuitry offers high fidelity and low distortion. They feature adjustable volume boost and balanced XLR D.I. outputs. Platinum Pro EQ has durable foot switches, and includes simple and effective analog soft-knee compressor, effect loop, and precision sweepable notch filter. With its included belt clip, the Platinum Stage (pictured) is perfect for mobile instrumentalists like mandolin or fiddle players. It can also be powered by 48V phantom power, offering complete control over your sound without relying on batteries.
