“Fishman bass pickups and preamps have been an integral part of my career success for the last 20 years. The strong feedback-proof signal allows me to play everywhere from intimate folk clubs through to arenas with country bands and maintain the clear and warm tone I love. Engineers complement me on the sound and stability of my tone and I love knowing I can trust the Fishman team to take care of me in an emergency” – Vanessa McGowan
