Guitar World’s Chris Gill reviewed the Fishman Fluence Modern Humbuckers in the June 2015 issue. Gill tested the Modern Alnico and Ceramic Humbucker pickup set in a drop tuning and modern metal setting. He first describes the technology of the pickups. “While all previous pickup designs use wound copper wire coils, Fishman Fluence pickups feature the truly revolutionary Fluence Core"
Since the 2014 launch of Fluence Multi-Voice pickups for electric guitar, artists have been quick to embrace the tone and features of this newest technology from Fishman.
Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s Adam Perlmutter reviewed the Platinum Pro EQ and Platinum Stage Preamps in the April 2015 issue. Perlmutter tested both Platinum analog preamplifiers and his overall reaction was that “both units deliver clean and accurate sonics, not to mention user-friendliness and affordability.”
