Fishman Ellipse Matrix Blend Guitar Pickup and Preamp System

Add power and clarity to your instrument without revealing the source. Once the Ellipse Blend is installed, it's virtually invisible from everyone but you.

Now you can add the power and sonic clarity of Fishman's renowned blending technology to your guitar, without any visible modification. The Ellipse Matrix Blend combines the world's best-selling undersaddle pickup, the Fishman Acoustic Matrix, with the popular Ellipse Blend to give you incredible tone at your fingertips.

With its flexible gooseneck condenser microphone and volume, blend, and phase controls, the Ellipse Matrix Blend makes it possible to have the best of both worlds when you play: the sparkling, transparent sound and control that their Acoustic Matrix pickup affords, complemented by the unique and expressive character that a microphone provides.

And the Ellipse Blend gives your sound that extra depth without the need for major modification to your instrument. In fact, the Ellipse Blend is designed so that it's nearly invisible once installed, so its you and your guitar that take center stage.

Great sound, but be careful how much of the mic you blend in, as it is very sensitive, and may pick up the rubbing of a shirt sleve on the guitar. Also the mic can get feedback easily, but it is very clear.
The ability to blend the pickup and the mic are great. Also, having control over volume without having to run over to the mixing board is great. No major cutting out of the guitar is a big bonus.
It is a bit pricy
Manufacturer Support
Haven't had a problem with the pickup, but did have the wrong one for a 12 string guitar (bridge side)... Fishman was very good to talk to, and helped resolve the problem quickly.
