i cant use it.
Nasally, and sensitive to pickup placement. just sounds boingy--all strings, no bass body tone.
The pinch-clamps are too much guesswork. too tight vs. not tight enough is anyones guess.
fishman may have had a winner 15 years ago, but the technology is passe. but like all fishman stuff, the build quality is great.
there are better for less. $99 gets you a Revolution One or a K&K. these pickups are MUCH better.
