Fluence Tosin Abasi Modern 8 String Humbucker Pickup Set
Currently out of Stock
The Fishman Fluence Tosin Abasi Modern 8 String Humbucker Pickups have a unique construction that produces a very consistent pickup free from hum with unrivalled clarity and response. This set includes one alnico and one ceramic magnet loaded soap bar pickup each with three selectable voice settings designed with Tosin Abasi to suit the extended range guitars he plays.
The Tosin Abasi Signature Set is unique in the way it makes multiple coil combinations available, in conjunction with the different voices. Even the magnetic circuit is tuned, with pole pieces and a blade magnet combined in the neck position for authentic single coil interaction. For neck and bridge, Voice 1 begins with the Fishman Modern sound and fattens up the low midrange while adjusting the output level to Tosin's taste. Voice 2 is a passive style sound, bright and clean with an extremely fast and detailed top end for percussive attack and crystalline cleans. Voice 3 is a single coil mode, the neck pickup is reminiscent of a vintage Tele and the bridge pickup focusing on the quacky Strat like position '2 & 4' tones. Please note you will need a 5 way super switch (not included) to wire these the way Tosin uses them (accessing inner neck single coil), you can still access all three voices via two push/pull pots (single coils will always be coil nearest neck for both pickups).
The Fluence pickups are made by 'printing' the coil on to layers of circuit board instead of winding a length of wire around a bobbin thousands of times, this removes any inconsistencies in the wire size, number of winds or the winding pattern around the bobbin, producing consistent, dependable pickups with no change in output or tone between sets, no need to worry about finding the perfect set. The on board preamp provides three switchable voices (selectable via the included push/pull potentiometer but can be wired in to a switch or hardwired to just one voice) and no treble loss when turning the volume down or using long cable runs.
The Fishman Fluence Tosin Abasi Modern 8 String Humbucker Pickup set uses a 4" long soapbar housing (the same as EMG 8 string pickups) and features their solderless quick connect system for quick and easy installation, it comes with everything you need including two 25k volume potentiometers and two push/pull 25k tone pots, stereo output jack, battery connector and all required connector wires.
