In a recent survey, over 90% of respondents said they “strongly agree” that Acoustic Guitar magazine is a reliable source of new gear information. Let’s see what they had to say about our new Matrix Infinity Mic Blend pickup system.
In this review by Acoustic Guitar Senior Editor Greg Olwell, Greg does his due diligence, pointing out all of the new and upgraded features of the Matrix Infinity Mic Blend “… [Fishman] recently updated the system, so we requested the Fishman Matrix Infinity Mic Blend ($299 MAP), which Fishman sent preinstalled in a recent Martin OM-21… Fishman was able to redesign the system to be more capable of working for the wider range of guitar sizes—and styles—players use today. They also redesigned the shape and placement of the soundhole-mounted controls to be reachable, but out of sight.”
Greg continues, “The small mic inside the soundhole can swivel from pointing toward the back to the strings… A slider switch on the control module selects between two preamp voices—one that yields a neutral response to help control boominess and low-end feedback, and another that provides a subtle boost in bass presence, which gave solo playing a richer, more expansive sound.”
After a thorough audition which included various mic positions and listening through multiple acoustic amps and P.A. systems, Greg concludes, “The new Matrix Infinity Blend didn’t have a bad sound anywhere on the control’s range… your ears will tell you that the new Matrix Infinity Mic Blend is the best Matrix Infinity yet,”
