Two classic voices. Strong, “Calibrated P.A.F.” and the Hot Rodded tone that redefined lead guitar, in the same pickup.
The electric guitar pickup has been wound since 1934. 80 years later, Fishman has unwound it. Original and totally re-imagined, Fishman's Fluence pickups are free from the hum, noise and frustrating inductance issues that plague even the most coveted wire-wound pickups—revealing pure, uncorrupted and musical tone.
Each Fishman Fluence pickup has two distinct and useful sounds on-board. These sounds start with the revolutionary Fluence Core, the heart of Fluence tone. From this Fluence Core we then create the classic timbres and tone—colors you expect from great guitar pickups—as well as some you’ve never expected.
Fishman Fluence pickups are the first real re-imagining of electric guitar pickups in over 80 years. Before Fishman embarked on the Fluence journey, their team established some important ground rules:
The tones of the great classic and aftermarket pickups are the benchmarks by which all other pickups are judged. These tones and timbres are not negotiable; they are the sound of electric guitars. Period.
With Rule 1 firmly established, we listed the design shortcomings of classic pickups and set about to fix them:
Fluence pickups are true Multi-Voice. Coil taps and other switching can yield different sounds, but they can’t transform your pickups from vintage to hot, or from hot to “line-in” clean... with no losses in output level.
Fluence pickups are quiet. Single coils hum, and all standard pickups are susceptible to spurious noise—even humbuckers! No sacrifice of classic tone for quiet operation.
Fluence pickups allow you to own the stage. Long cables? No problem. 20’, 30’, 50’ or more, with no signal degradation.
Fluence pickups let you control your volume, without sacrificing high end or clarity.
Fluence pickups will run for days on a standard 9v battery, or with the optional rechargeable lithium-ion pack—never change batteries again.
Multi-Voice. Set and forget, or wire-up to toggle between two musically complimentary voices.
Drop right in. Replaces standard humbucking and single coil pickups.
Are rechargeable on your guitar. Optional lithium-ion battery pack offers weeks, not hours, of playing time.
