Fishman Rare Earth Humbucking


Fishman Rare Earth pickups have been the favorite of those who prefer a magnetic soundhole pickups for several years now. They are extremely low-profile and resist feedback that other species of pickups are prone to. They produce a warm, clear tone that can cut through any mix, and they have a bass response that simply isn't found elsewhere. In the full band (a.k.a. with loud drums) environment, where piezo undersaddle pickups can sound brittle and soundboard transducers can feedback and sound tubby, the Rare Earth really shines! We stock the Rare Earth Humbucker and the Rare Earth Blend. Here are the specs:
