The Fishman Fluence Bass 5-String Soapbar Pickup Set & Preamp - black. FREE shipping in the USA!
Versatility without compromise
The Fluence Bass Soapbar pickup brings revolutionary Fluence Multi-Voice performance, dynamic range, and articulation to bassists.
Based on Fishman’s convention-disrupting Fluence Core technology, a single bass pickup can now produce multiple timbres and sounds, each untethered from the other. Original and totally re-imagined, Fluence Multi-Voice pickups for electric bass are free from the hum, noise and frustrating inductance issues that plague even the most coveted wire-wound pickups, revealing pure, uncorrupted bass tone.
Like all Fluence pickups, the Bass Soapbar pickups are multi-voice and can be powered by a Fluence rechargeable battery pack or a standard 9-Volt battery.
Fluence Bass Soapbar pickups can be split for single coil operation with a Jazz Bass string window. Also, the included Treble and Bass controls can be used to further expand the tonal palette.
Voicings for the Fluence Bass Soapbar pickup were created to offer players a wide palette of sounds that cover all playing styles.
- Voice 1 (Passive): Classic, fat and round
- Voice 2 (Active): Full frequency, full dynamics
- Voice 2 (Active with mid contour): Funk, Hi-Fi scooped
- Single Coil Mode: Same voices as above but with Jazz Bass string window
