Absolutely Awesome Product!
by Gregory Ginter from Nashville, TN USAThis is an absolutely awesome product. I had it put in my acoustic so that I run it through a sound system in a live environment. I am blown away by the sound that comes from this system. My guitar... read more [+] sounded good before I put in this system but it really shines with this installed. Every time I play, I plug it in , even if I am just practicing. Installation was easy and involved cutting a hole in the pickup and widening the end hole. close [-]

Fishman Rocks Again
by Victor from PrincetonI installed this pickup in my Cordoba F7 Flamenco guitar, It was a easy install and sounds great like it should, Its not a mic in the sense of what you get when your in a studio, however for playing ... read more [+]live and wanting to be able to capture the sounds of the taps/glopes on the body of the guitar you need more than jus the piezo pickup. I will probably use the Fishman Aura at times. For live paying a great set up. Mark Magdichx 1265 was a great help at SW. Thanks close [-]

Fishman Ellipse Matrix Pickup
by Jerry Hildabridle from Burnet, TexasI purchased this pickup for my Martin D-35. It was very easy to install, except for boring the almost half inch hole to accept the jack. I danced around that for an hour. Next time will use a step ... read more [+]drill which is easier to control. It stated that a professional should install the product, but when I saw the installer, there was no way I was going to let this clown do the work. I use a PA system instead of an amp, the sound is great. I am planning to buy another to be installed in my D12-35. close [-]

my installation experience
by Tom from Houston, TxYou definately need to download installation instructions from Fishman website because there's not much info in the box. I'm pretty handy so I had the tools and background to do the installation. If y... read more [+]ou're not a bit of a crafstman, take it to someone who is, as you will be drilling holes in your beloved guitar. I installed this in a 40 year old Ventura 12 string. I'm glad I selected the Narrow pickup as my bridge was only 3/16" thick and this fit comfortably at the bottom of the slot. The mag pickup easily reached beyond the top and bottom E strings so I get full response from every string.

Drilling the hole for the mag pickup wire and drilling out the strap button hole were the only scary parts.
The rest was cook book per the instructions.
It works great....still playing with the balance between condenser mic, mag pickup, and mic location. There's so much sound coming out of a 12 string anyway that it complicates things a little. I play in a group and have been using a premium (but non-adjustable) mag pickup in the sound hole for the last 10 years, so the increased flexibility is totally fun.
It is invisible and easy to access for volume and balance adjustment. The trim pot on the mic doesn't seem to have much effect...still fiddling with it. Bass is great if you want it and easy to turn down if you don't. A low battery light would be a nice feature. Keep a spare batt in your case.
