The Fishman Fluence pickup features two unique voices for you to create your own ideal sound. The voices of this Artist Pickup have been personalised by Deftones' Stephen Carpenter, who stated "I'm not much for specs, but I like clean, full sounding pickups. We put Fluence in and I jammed on them for 45 minutes and thought… ‘these things are great…’ I didn't want to stop playing."
Voice 1 provides a sound that is similar to the original Modern Fluence pickup, with crisp and crunchy tones; that have been adjusted slightly in the midrange to create Stephen's ideal pickup. Whilst voice 2 features custom voicing which offers incredible heat and edge; for a tone that Carpenter is well known for.
Stephen Carpenter is the guitarist in alternative metal band Deftones. The band are said to be one of the most experimental and innovative groups within alternative metal. Stephen often plays with 6, 7 and 8 string guitars for ultimate shredding and increased versatility.
