Equipped with cutting-edge neodymium magnets, the new Rare Earth pickups offer a warmer, more natural acoustic tone, along with exceptional accuracy and increased musicality.

As part of the new Fishman Acoustic PowerTap™ series, the PowerTap Earth pickup system combines the easy installation, superior performance, and warm, transparent sound of our Rare Earth Humbucker, with a totally new soundboard body sensor. The result is a new world of percussive performance elements and tactile dynamics for guitarists of all styles. With the addition of Tap pickup technology, players can add new performance dynamics of Touch, Ambience and Percussion. The easily adjustable Blend control mixes the Rare Earth and Tap signals in mono, or run both signals into separate channels using a stereo cable. This feature allows players to add separate effects, level control, and EQ to each pickup independently – to create a striking soundscape of tones from a single instrument.
