The Fishman Fluence Multi-Voice Modern Humbucker Pickup Set in Gold delivers a superb pair of pickups with selectable voicing capabilties, coil-tapping options, exceptional battery life, and are easy enough to be installed by anyone - what could be better? Oh, and its worth pointing out that they sound pretty awesome too!
Ceramic and Alnico V options
As part of the Fluence Modern Set there is a single ceramic humbucker, and an Alnico V-powered humbucker. Each pickup offers its own unique flavour to your set-up, but Fishman both perform exquisitely. Thanks to the onboard active electronics, you can push both of these beauties without cause for concern, guaranteeing a smooth output every time.
The ceramic humbucker has a characteristically more aggressive response than that of the Alnico V. If it is punishing power for your riffs that you seek, then the ceramic pickup is your weapon of choice. Voice 1 creates a crisp bite with a smoking hot edge, a meaty crunch with a tightly-packed bass response that pulls no punches. Voice 2 rounds off the edges a little, creating a smoother and less punitive blow.
The Alnico V magnet powered humbucker prefers to generate its heat with buckets of warmth and expression. If its wide-open chords with a hard rock edge you wish to execute, then the Alnico V humbucker is happy to oblige. Voice 1 delivers a dreamy tone with an energetic bounce that delivers each and every note with the utmost clarity. Voice 2 tails off the sharpness, retaining a very smooth, fat and juicy energy with heavy saturation - perfect for chunky blues-driven rock.
The Fishman Fluence pickups are designed to easily replace your existing dual humbucker arrangement. Simply unscrew and pop out your current pickups, then pop these in and screw to your desired height - it's as simple as that. Each pickup features a pair of solder points that allows you to coil-tap these beauties, expanding your tonal arsenal even further.
In order to satisfy the demands of the active electronic circuitry, Fishman has designed the pickups to run on a single 9-Volt battery. However, the Fluence modern humbuckers will both run for a lengthy 200+ hours before you need to recharge or replace your battery - easily enough time to take over the world.
The Fishman Fluence Multi-Voice Modern Humbucker Pickups Set in Gold are every guitarist's dream come true - easy to install, highly versatile, low-energy, high-output humbuckers that don't cost the Earth.
