"What the TriplePlay has done for me is to open the doors to a vast world of possibilities with the tools I already had and loved -- my guitar and my well-trained hands on it. I've been able to use virtual instruments like never before, and I was stunned to find inspiration and hours of enjoyment with sounds that I would quickly discard when auditioning with a keyboard controller!"
Grammy Nominated Guitarist Doc Powell has been a fan of Fishman products for over twenty years. Last year while recording BET’s Comic View and Apollo Live, Doc had a chance to use the TriplePlay wireless MIDI guitar controller during the taping and fell in love with it. Fishman had an opportunity to sit down with Doc recently and talk about TriplePlay and all of the musical projects he's been busy with.
"The TriplePlay wireless guitar controller and hex pickup can be fitted to a player's own guitar without being intrusive. This allows the musician to stick with a favored or familiar instrument setup while opening it up to 'an unlimited palette of instruments and sounds' courtesy of the impressive supporting cast of top notch recording, transcription and digital music creation and sound generation software. Oh, and you can leave that tiresome 13-pin cable in the gig bag."
Open Labs have teamed up with Linkin Park, Guitar Center, and Fishman to launch an unprecedented 12-month music creation contest for all musicians around the globe.

Monthly winners will receive a Fishman TriplePlay and loads of other great prizes from other sponsor companies. One Grand Prize winner will spend a day in the studio with Linkin Park!
Radical New Trends in Pickup Design! Guitar Player’s May 2014 cover story puts a big spotlight on the groundbreaking new Fluence electric guitar pickup technology from Fishman. "In terms of what it took to bring something really new to the market, Larry Fishman should earn a pole vaulting award for the gigantic leap he just made into the electric guitar field."
If you're a fan of acoustic music, particularly bluegrass, and you haven't heard of fiddler Becky Buller, there's a good chance you've heard some of her songs. Becky's compositions have been recorded by Ricky Skaggs, Rhonda Vincent, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Josh Williams, and Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out. We had a chance to catch up with Becky recently and ask her a few questions.
Check out The Hub from Musician's Friend! In a piece entitled "Infinite Curiosity and The Art of Sound," writer Marty Paule interviews Larry Fishman. The first in a series of interviews with industry pioneers, the writer leads in-depth conversation that explores the long and rich history of "an American entrepreneur staying at the forefront of music gear innovation."
Fishman's demo artist extraordinaire Greg Koch was on hand to play and show European trade show visitors that Fluence pickups deliver the tone they love, and leave the rest of the baggage behind.
Fishman artists and Grammy-nominated bluegrass expansionists The Infamous Stringdusters have proven they can both mine the past and look forward to the unknown. Their new album is a touchstone for a group of tightly bonded musicians completely comfortable with each other and their collective identity.
Marty Cutler writes, "For beginners, TriplePlay provides a turnkey, guitar-synthesis system with a minimal amount of tweaking and techno-angst. For seasoned MIDI guitarists, the wireless aspect of the system is a liberating experience, untethering the guitar from the bulky, fragile, and expensive 13-pin din cables. With a minimum of fuss, Fishman's TriplePlay system easily provides accurate and speedy tracking with both software and external instruments."
