Video Review - Mattrixx-N SanGreal Acoustic Amp

September 17, 2009
PG's Gayla Drake Paul's latest Video Review is the Mattrixx-N SanGreal Acoustic Instrument Amplifier. Read the written review.

The Mattrixx-N SanGreal Acoustic Instrument Amplifier is 400 watts (bi-amped 200 watts per low-frequency and high-frequency driver) with two input channels that can be customized for your specific applications. It comes with an instrument channel with line and instrument inputs-and the XLR in has phantom power. Both channels have input Gain, three-band EQ and multi-mode Reverb. Channel one includes a narrow-band notch filter, and our review unit had the option vacuum tube, which Gayla has said added some additional warmth. Other controls on the SanGreal are Master and Monitor volume controls and an FX loop.

It comes loaded with neodymium-powered ribbon driver and an advanced low-frequency driver. The cabinet is monitor-shaped, made of birch multi-ply with a handle at one end and a speaker pole mount on the other.
