Based on Fishman’s convention-disrupting Fluence Core technology, a single bass pickup can now produce multiple timbres and sounds, each untethered from the other. Original and totally re-imagined, Fluence Multi-Voice pickups for electric bass are free from the hum, noise and frustrating inductance issues that plague even the most coveted wire-wound pickups, revealing pure, uncorrupted bass tone.

Like all Fluence pickups, the Bass Soapbar pickups are multi-voice and can be powered by a Fluence rechargeable battery pack or a standard 9-Volt battery.

Additionally, Fluence Bass Soapbar pickups can be split for single-coil operation or paired with Fishman's onboard Treble and Bass control to further expand the tonal palette.

Voicings for the Fluence Bass Soapbar pickup were created to offer players a wide palette of sounds that cover all playing styles.

  • Voice 1: Classic, fat and round
  • Voice 2 (Mid Cut): Funk, Hi-Fi scooped
  • Voice 2 (Mid Flat): Full frequency, full dynamics
  • Single Coil Mode: Same voices as above but with Jazz Bass string window
