  • Great sound, no volume control

    As reviewed by STEPHEN on 9/18/2014

    I have both the LR Baggs M1 Active and the Fishman Rare Earth Single Coil pickups. The Baggs is a perfect match for my Epiphone Jumbo - the Fishman sounded too strident and non-acoustic in this guitar. However, in my Ibanez PF-18s, it really sounds great! Unlike the Baggs, the Fishman pickup doesn't pick up every scratch and tap you make on the body of the guitar, and it has an aggressive, but still acoustic, sound. I'm getting great sounds out of both pickups through an old Mesa Boogie Mk iii. I'd give the Fishman 5 stars, but for the fact that it does not have a volume control, nor does it have adjustable pole pieces. Still, it is a truly great pickup with the right guitar.

  • Better on 12 string

    As reviewed by David on 8/29/2009

    Not wanting to greatly alter my HD-28, I tried the humbucker version of this pick up and it is very natural sounding. However the same humbucker pick up in my Martin D28-12 sounded mudlled, losing some of the sharp jangle of the 12 string. I tried the single coil rare eath instead and voila! problem solved. The trade of is that you gain some noise in exchange, but if you keep a little distance from your amp or run it through a pre-amp, its eay to manage. If your going to do the permanent install yourself, definitely get the end pin reamer from Stewart-Macdonald for that purpose. Its not cheap, but neither was your favorite acoustic. I had tried sound hole pick ups in the 70's, but they just made your guitar sound like a cheap electric. This is a great improvement.

  • Great sound Easy Setup

    As reviewed by Tim on 2/11/2011

    All in the title, great sound, easy setup. Sounds natural, crisp, and is worth the money, don't spend cheap on other acoustic pickups.
