    Comments about Fishman Matrix Infinity Acoustic Guitar Under Saddle Pickup:

    Use it in Church as Worship Leader in My Martin and in Concert as a Music Minister. Sounds fantastic and can cut through the mix as needed. Love the volume and tone control at your finger tips. Very sweet sound! You won't go wrong. (Easy enough to install yourself if you have experience in woodworking. I do all my own setups and installations.)

      Comments about Fishman Matrix Infinity Acoustic Guitar Under Saddle Pickup:

      I had this pickup professionally installed by guitar tech John Lupton into a Blueridge BG-40 slope shouldered acoustic guitar at Midrivers Music in St. Peters, MO, and he did a fabulous job. The pickup is extremely accurate... the amplified sound (running through a Bose L1 Model 2, set flat) is very close to the guitar's sound when played unamplified. This pickup is also very responsive... when I lay into the guitar, the volumes really jumps, and when I play very lightly, the pickup still senses all the nuance of the guitar... wow! The onboard volume and tone controls are cool, especially the tone... basically a mid scoop control, but with a lot of good impact on the overall sound. Most of my other guitars have pickup systems that are rather old (15+ years), and I can see that Fishman has really come a long way in that time... great sounding pickup.

        Comments about Fishman Matrix Infinity Acoustic Guitar Under Saddle Pickup:

        The packaging from Fishman was an expression of the quality before you even get it out of the box.. After looking on the internet and finding the installation instructions I installed the pickup myself, even though they recommend a professional installation. The instructions were well written and there was a couple of good You tube videos so I was confident I would be able to install it. I took my time and was careful to make sure the under saddle pickup was installed correctly and the saddle sat perfectly flat on the pickup with the strings tensioned. After several adjustments I was able to sneak up on the perfect string height. When I was finished I plugged in to my amp and experimented with the tone and volume settings on the pickup. There is enough adjustment as well as having the bass boost switch that you should be able to find the tone you're looking for. The sound was crystal clear and it is amazing how this pickup brings out every little nuance when played through an amplifier. I am very pleased with the Fishman pickup and the way it makes a "just average" guitar sound really good. Works for my playing style. I am mostly rhythm, some lead, and finger picking. Not really rocking out or playing really hard. So I don't know how it would respond to that but it works great for what I do.

          I have a D28 and needed to be able to have volume for larger rooms and this system is what Martin puts in the instruments from the factory. It changed to sound a little bit, but it still sounds good. I like it.

                  Great Product !!!

                  I installed the Fishman Matrex Infinity on an old Ovation Custom Balladeer. After talking to many professionals telling me it wouldn't work and researching many options I took on the task of installation myself. All it took was a little over 1 hour.

                  I was first told the pickup was to wide,
                  (a drill and a 3/32 drill bit fixed that)

                  I was also told the back of the guitar would split and that the cord would bust the jack out because the back was too thin.
                  (The back didn't split when drilled and to give more support I added large washers to each side of jack mount)

                  I was told the adhesive wouldn't stick to the inside of this guitar.
                  (It held just fine)

                  I play in the band at Church and a few other places and this pickup works great

                  Comments about Fishman Matrix Infinity Acoustic Guitar Under Saddle Pickup:

                  This was a replacement for an old Fishman, so installation was very easy. Solderless installation is a big plus! The only problem is that the adhesive that holds the volume/tone control in the sound hole is a little weak. I had to improvise with some 3M adhesive strips (like you buy at Home Depot), and that worked fine. Otherwise, great pickup - what you'd expect for a Fishman under saddle.

                  I have installed many of these systems over the years, and they are my choice every time. They give you authentic acoustic sound and the guitar's appearance is unchanged. I've never been disappointed with this system.

                      Was a bit wary of installing this myself, but as a replacement for an existing under-saddle pickup, it turned out to be straight-forward and easy to install. Pretty good documentation for install was helpful from the manufacturer's website.

                      Very pleased with overall sound clarity and depth and ease of controls. I plan to replace pickups in other guitars with this one soon.
