The Fishman M-300 Nashville Series Archtop Mandolin pickup features a piezo-ceramic pickup element embedded in the base of the bridge, and an adjustable ebony replacement bridge saddle. The Fishman M-300 is designed for all archtop-style mandolins, and includes a high quality 1/4" Carpenter-style output jack that clamps onto the side of the instrument.
The Fishman M-300 provides a warmer, richer sound than the Fishman M-200 pickup due to the higher quality of the sensor and its position in the base of the bridge, rather than in the saddle. By comparison, the M-200 sensor in the saddle reproduces more string sound (including noise and squeeks) and less body resonance, while the M-300 includes more body resonance for a woodier, more acoustic sound overall, providing more depth and realism without sacrificing string definition.
In addition, since the sensor is in the base of the bridge you can continue to use your existing saddle, keeping any customizations you may have made to the saddle. You can even use different saddles (not included) for different types of playing for maximum flexibility.
Includes M-300 mandolin bridge assembly with embedded pickup and prewired carpenter jack assembly. Mandolin not included.
