Fishman Fluence pickups for electric guitars are the 1st real advancement in pickup system design in over 80 years. A new, analog, system-wide approach delivers great “idealized” guitar sounds that are also quiet and free from hum and other artifacts that affect our favorite pickups from the past.
 
Multi-Voice — Change Pickups on the Fly
The nature of the Fluence Core also allows us to create multiple voices for each pickup, so every Fluence pickup has two selectable, complementary voices onboard. These voices can be accessed via any number of standard switches or push-pull controls.
 
Power To The People!
Another example of the fresh thinking applied to Fluence is the way their power supply is stored and managed. Can you use a standard 9V battery? Yes. But where do you put it if your guitar doesn’t have a compartment? The optional Fluence battery packs require no modification and screw on to your guitar in place of the control or spring cover. They offer 200+ hours of playing time and fully charge in a few hours using a standard USB charger.
 
Idealized Pickups
With Fluence pickups you can run hundreds of feet of guitar cable without any loss in sound quality. Your volume control operates smoother than you’ve ever experienced and it has no adverse affect on your tone – allowing you to get musically useful sounds in the “2 to 5” region of its travel. No hum, no buzz, no spurious noise or frustrating inductance issues.

    Comments about Fishman Limited Edition Fluence Stephen Carpenter 6-String Set Humbucker:

    Wow is all i can say. First off i hate the sound of active pick ups. I talked to fishman on the phone and asked them about the classic "hot rodded humbucker sound" and with out saying yes out right I asked if they sounded/where based on the tone of a "remore pumkin kc (names changed
    but rhyme) with the second bridge voicing being slightly hotter. I have 6 guitars, all with the rhyming named changed pick ups i mentioned in them. The Stef set is that sound but completely balanced and slightly more airy. Incredibly sensitive to pic attack. The second voicing is great cor when you need just a little extra umff for parts that really need to cut through the mix. I ran this thru my normal amp setup and did not need to change a thing. Everybody noticed how much better my tone was, and my tone is killer to begin with. They only made 50 so hopefully i can cop another set for my other main guitar for my band. I will admit wiring is complicated, I've swapped 15 plus+ pickups in my life time, and i did not even use half the options the fishman's are capable of. Once again wow just wow. The fluence hype is real.

      Comments about Fishman Limited Edition Fluence Stephen Carpenter 6-String Set Humbucker:

      I bought these to try them out seeing as they were limited edition versions of the 7/8 string variety of Stephen Carpenter. When I installed them, I couldn't tell how great they were until I directly compared them. These pickups have AMAZING clarity, and the two voicings are awesome to have, albeit I mainly use voice one. The thing here is that the differences are VERY noticeable in the clean tones. The dirty tones are masked by the natural compression of distortion. Don't get me wrong, there's still a big difference, particularly if you tune low or use big chords. Every note shines through the mix and they have an amazing bite. If you want an idea of what they're like, I'd say they're almost like EMGs but with an unexplainable tone. You really have to just try it out and hear for yourself

      The only con I'd say for these is the wiring. It's not especially hard, but for the novice person who is new to soldering pickups, they may get confused. The only thing that threw me off was trying to install the coil tap feature (something that I didn't even know these could do, being active and all). I actually had messed up my first pair and I got them replaced directly by Fishman. That was my fault, so I wouldn't blame the company, but they did fix it for free.

      Regardless, if you're thinking of buying these, GET THEM!!!!! They are amazing, and honestly they'll change your mind about the active world of pickups. Especially because these don't sound active at all (this is especially true for voice 2)
