If you’ve been a fan of rock music for the past 20 years, chances are that you’ve heard Chris Traynor’s guitar playing on the radio or seen him performing live or on T.V. with some of your favorite bands. He’s recorded and or performed with artists such as Bush, Helmet, Katy Perry, Dave Stewart, Blur, Gavin Rossdale and Rival Schools, to name a few. Chris sat down with Fishman one-on-one to answer a few questions about his current projects and some of the gear he uses to perform.
We interviewed Ken Susi of the metal band Unearth and the new Fishman Fluence Product and Artist Relations Manager. He talks about Unearth's current projects, his initial reaction when playing the Fluence pickups, and his experience working at Fishman.
Featuring Fishman Artists Chris Funk and Nate Query, The Decemberists’ seventh studio album What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World was released on January 20 through Capitol Records and the day prior in the U.K. and Europe through Rough Trade Records.
Guitar Player Magazine’s Art Thompson tests and reviews the Fluence Single Width Pickups in the February 2015 issue. After the cover feature in the May 2014 issue, Guitar Player awards the Editor’s Pick to the new Fluence Single Width Pickup. Thompson reminds readers “the novel feature about Fluence pickups is that they don’t use traditional wire-wound coils."
