Very nice piece of equipment,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fishman Rare Earth Humbucking Soundhole Pickup (Electronics)
I have a seagull cedarwood acoustic, in which the pickup gave out a few months back after 10 years of wear, tear and travel. I removed the pickup and began hunting for a decent replacement. The Fishman Rare Earth series seem to have almost universally positive reviews, and although the 'blended' model is thought to be the best, it is not currently available on amazon. The humbucker model is thought of as 2nd best, and I must say I think it is excellent. It is easy to install, and sounds great, giving a very well rounded EQ, not the overdriven mid-heavy sound of a standard seagull pickup, or the laser-beam-through-the-brain treble overkill of an electro-taylor, but just a very natural, believable acoustic sound, which is versatile enough to be tweakable in any EQ direction once it hits the amp or mixing board. Good stuff, which I would definitely reccomend.
