Fishman has announced its new PowerTap Earth and PowerTap Infinity pickup systems.
Designed to help acoustic guitarists add texture and dynamics to their performances, the pickups feature a Tap body sensor that - when combined with a Matrix Infinity (PowerTap Infinity) or Rare Earth (PowerTap Earth) pickup - adds another layer of depth to the user's sound.
Both systems feature an adjustable Blend control that can mix the sound of the Rare Earth or Infinity and Tap signals in mono. Players can also choose to run the individual pickup and Tap signals into separate channels with the use of a stereo cable - allowing users to add separate effects, level control and EQ to each pickup independently.
Individually, the PowerTap Infinity features an enclosed, soundhole-mounted Volume and Tone control module, plus a voicing switch.
The PowerTap Earth features active electronics, miniature batteries and a neodymium magnet structure for increased string clarity.
The prices of the Fishman PowerTap Earth and PowerTap Infinity pickup systems have yet to be announced.
