Equipped with cutting-edge neodymium magnets, the Fishman Rare Earth Humbucking pickup has a dual-coil hum-cancelling design that provides a warm, full humbucker sound with more natural acoustic tone. The Rare Earth Humbucking pickup has been carefully re-voiced and fine-tuned to offer an even smoother treble response than its popular, category-defining predecessor.
The Rare Earth Humbucking pickup has a built-in preamp with a volume control that operates on two 1.5V silver oxide coin batteries (included). Since the preamp is built directly into the pickup housing, the included pre-wired output jack can be used externally, or it can be internally mounted for a more permanent installation.
Fits soundholes as small as 3-5/8" (92 mm) diameter. For 6-string or 12-string steel string guitars, will not work on nylon string guitars.
