However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Fishman F1 Aura+

The Martin DCPA1 Plus features the stunning realism of award-winning Aura Acoustic Imaging technology in a distinctive and easy-to-use onboard preamp system. The DCPA1 Plus offers the ability to replicate the sound of nine different world-class studio microphones, delivered via an intuitive menu driven interface that provides performance versatility with controls placed in the perfect position for total ease of operation.

New Enhanced ''Easy Mode''

The F1 Aura+ offers a simplified set of user controls called ''Easy Mode''. This mode allows you to quickly get a feel for the tonal possibilities of the F1 Aura+ while also providing quick access to the most important features you'll need for every day performances.

Simply press the Tone control to step through 3 custom-blended Aura Image presets as well as the uneffected, Gold Plus pickup sound. The one-knob Tone control blends between a natural, undersaddle sound with no EQ and a ''scooped'' tone with emphasized treble, bass and reduced midrange.

Same Great Performance and Power

For the real tone-tweakers who demand freedom for their performance, the F1 Aura+ retains the original ''Performance Mode'' as well as giving you full access to the powerful 3-band EQs, compressor and automatic anti-feedback functions.
