Fishman Nashville & Concert Series String Pickups Marked By Accuracy, Innovation [Summer NAMM 2008]

United States

Nashville, TN, May 19, 2008 — The Summer NAMM show will provide the ideal context for Fishman to introduce new lines of premium pickups for Violin, Viola, Cello, Mandolin and Resophonic Spider-style guitar which once again set the standard for the category.

A result of intensive R&D effort, company founder Larry Fishman’s expertise in the field and today’s most sophisticated transducer technologies, the Nashville and Concert Series pickups offer an extraordinary level of performance, tone quality and accuracy for stringed instruments.

The piezo-ceramic Concert Series pickups for Violin, Viola and Cello are preinstalled in high quality Despiau bridges to provide the ultimate performance in terms of a precise and perfectly balanced tone from string to string.

Specifically designed for two-piece Archtop and Flat Top style Mandolins and Spider-style Resophonic guitar, the new Nashville Series premium pickups also feature an integrated installation in high quality bridges that enhance the overall tonal character of the instrument.

In addition to an exceptionally clear, true and natural tonal response designed to reveal the true character of the instrument, these pickups sound remarkably consistent every time they are played.

The new stringed instrument pickups are also optimized for use with Fishman Aura Imaging Pedals to provide a higher level of sound quality and added sonic versatility in live performance. Violin, Viola, Cello and Mandolin pickups include a Carpenter jack, while the Resophonic pickup includes an endpin jack.

An impedance-matching preamp for these pickups is recommended, but not required.
