Fishman supports acoustic stringed-instrument builders, players, collectors and aficionados as a sponsor of the 7th Annual Woodstock Invitational Luthiers Showcase, a gathering of the finest handmade acoustic guitars and stringed musical instruments from around the world on October 23-25 in Woodstock, NY.
“I never expected any of these legends to say yes, but I figured it was worth a shot,” says Pat McGee about his star-studded new self-titled album. “If nothing else, I wanted them to know that I felt they would have been the perfect band for these songs. I have never been a guy that asked for favors or perks in this business, but on this project I definitely swung for the fences and thought to myself, ‘Why not? The worst they can say is ‘no’.”
In response to demand from players, the Fishman Fluence line of Multi-Voice pickups continues to expand. Players who appreciate the unique combination of dead-silent operation and Multi-Voice tones have eagerly adopted the Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker.
In this one-on-one with the eclectic guitarist and musician Keller Williams, we asked him about his experience with Fishman and the gear he has been using—Matrix Infinity and TriplePlay. He talks about his current musical projects, the benefit of having a wireless MIDI pickup in his rig, and the crowd’s reaction to hearing the TriplePlay live.
