  • Rare Earth Blend Soundhole Pickup, worth the hassle

    As reviewed by Mike Walsh on 4/22/2014

    I've been using the Fishman Rare Earth Blend Sound hole pickup for over three years. I play out a minimum 10 times per month. I use it in conjunction with a Martin 12 String and then through a Bose L1 system and the sound is just fantastic. Keep in mind these are all quality components. I absolutely love the sound of this! the adjustment lets you adjust the Humbucker/mic for a deeper or higher EQ. Regarding mic placement, it doesn't move. Putting it in roughly the center of the produces a beautiful rich sound. Drawbacks? There are a few. No volume control. I have had some feedback issues but can't specifically say it's the pickup. Batteries are hearing aid/watch batteries. Very common but best price I can find is 3 for $10.00. Do not get caught with dead batteries during a gig! It's a P.I.T.A! I change mine when I change my strings-about every 2 months. Or as someone else stated, just before a big gig.I'm going to buy another one for my 1978 Yuri Alvarez DY77 6 string Dreadnought. Replacing a different Fishman sound hole pickup. While there are drawbacks the overall sound is worth it! I'd give it a solid 4 stars.

  • Loose Goose, Battery Blues, Ho-Hum Humbucker, but Good Mic!

    As reviewed by James Lee on 4/17/2012

    I would like a more substantial goose neck to keep the mic in place. You have to remove the pickup to replace the batteries and they're like watch batteries! After replacing the batteries, then you have to reinstall it and get the mic positioning right again! Do this a few times and the flimsy goose neck might get loose. I worry that even vibrations will move the mic to a less than optimal position, and position does matter! The batteries will need to be replaced especially before important shows, so it will be an ongoing concern. I blend almost all the way to the mic because the humbucker is typical, in need of substantial EQ to make it sound even OK. If there is (and I don't know) just an internal phantom powered mic, that would be better. Then the power source could be external. An external battery source wouldn't be a big deal since you need external controls anyway. I mean it doesn't even have a volume control! I connected it to my L.R. Baggs Para DI, which has volume, EQ, etc. With the external controls I managed to make the humbucker sound a lot better, but it still sounds best blended almost all the way to the mic. Having said all this, the mic is good, so I give it 3 stars.
