A Reimagining of the Strat Pickup

From vintage sweetness to overwound punch, Fishman Fluence Strat pickups deliver the most sought-after Stratocaster tones. Unlike most wire-wound models, Fluence pickups manage to deliver the classic Strat sound - without hum, noise, or inductance issues. When you drop these pups into your Strat, you'll be immersed in pure, uncorrupted, euphoric tone. On top of that, Fishman Fluence Strat pickups provide you with your choice of two distinctly different voices - a clear, vintage-sounding single-coil and a muscular, overwound Hot Texas single-coil - all from the same pickups. Got questions about guitar pickups? Feel free to check out Sweetwater's Knowledge Base or give your Sales Engineer a call!

  • Multi-voice Fluence Core provides two distinct voices
  • Contains all you need for installation
Active electronics deliver classic tone - without the noise

We all love the sound of vintage pickups. That being said, the hum, buzz, and inductance issues leave a bit to be desired. With Fishman Fluence pickups, you can run hundreds of feet of guitar cable without any quality loss. Your volume control will operate with unprecedented smoothness, allowing you to milk useful sounds out of your guitar, even at low settings. To call these pickups "noiseless" would be a grand understatement!

Multi-voice Fluence Core provides two distinct voices

The Fluence Core provides you with the choice of two unique, selectable voices. The Fluence Strat pickup's first voice is reminiscent of a vintage single-coil. Plug into your Twin and treat yourself to that familiar sweet warmth, accented by clear and present articulation. The second voice invokes a Hot Texas single-coil, with its muscular, beefy, overwound tone. Don't worry, both voices deliver the unmistakable Stratocaster sound! The voices can be accessed by any number of standard switches or push/pull controls and can be added as a completely reversible modification to most guitars.

Contains all you need for installation

Fishman Fluence is a revolutionary new way to look at the art of pickup building. To deliver their wide range of tones, noise-free performance, and low-impedance signal, these pickups require a power source and specially designed pots. All of this is included with every pickup. Inside the package, you'll find the pickups, wiring, push-pull and standard 25k potentiometers that are ideal for the active circuitry, and more. Installing a set of Fishman Fluence pickups is a quick and easy way to achieve your electric guitar's full potential.

Fishman Fluence Strat Pickups Features:
  • Active electronics deliver classic, yet noiseless, tone
  • Multi-voice Fluence Core provides two selectable voices
  • Power supply delivers 200+ hours of use and recharges in a few hours
  • Direct replacement design requires no permanent guitar modification

They got it right.

I stumbled on a beat up Fender Aerodyne MIJ Strat, and it turned out to be quite the player. I normally don't swap out pickups, but after seeing Greg Koch demonstrate the Fluence line, I took the plunge. Wish I hadn't waited so long! The set comes with a single push-pull pot to select between vintage and Texas voicings. This is subtle, but useful. I added a second push-pull pot for the HF tilt feature. The intent here is to simulate the high frequency rolloff that occurs when you use a long cable with traditional passive single coil pickups. I find it a quick and easy way to roll off some of the top edge when I'm looking for a less glassy tone. These pickups have so much going from them. Dead silent, no tonal murkiness when you roll back the volume control. But most of all, just pure, strat tone bliss. The optional battery pack holds its charge, and is a much better solution than a battery compartment (or having to remove the pickguard to change a battery).


What every YouTube video fails to capture is how open and transparent these pups sound. On some of the YouTube videos, I actually cringe at the sound. In real life these sound amazing. The best way to describe it is, it's like putting high fidelity pick-ups on your guitar. I mean that in a very good way, not to imply that they are sterile...not at all. They can sing and then blow grit back into your face. They just do it with quality tone. These things are silent. Any noise you hear is your amp, not the pick-up. The choice of two different voicings is also a plus. Would be nice if Fishman would come out with different voicing kits for these. It really shouldn't be that hard to implement. Imagine the possibilities! Highly recommended.

Overall, I really like them. I took off a half star because they seem to sound a little compressed in the 2 and 4 position.
