Fishman Matrix VT Enhance
Matrix VT Enhance™ feature a new bridge plate mounted transducer to add dimension, resonance and body to the amplified tone of the guitar.
With no control holes cut into the side of your guitar, Matrix VT Enhance is discreet and simple to use with Volume, Tone and Enhance Blend controls inside the sound hole and at your fingertips.
The result is a sound that is pure Martin, with more responsiveness to your playing dynamics and touch.
How it works:
- Acoustic Matrix under-saddle pick-up, the world’s best-selling under-saddle pickup.
- Discreet, soundhole-mounted controls: Volume and tone controls up top and a new Enhance blend control on the lower part of the soundhole.
- Battery box integrated into endpin jack for easy access.
Fishman’s new Enhance Transducer is a bridge plate transducer that is mechanically and electrically optimized to bring out the dynamic and percussive elements of guitar playing.
The Enhance Transducer is specially designed to capture the longitudinal energy (dynamic and percussive attack) of the guitar top while being highly resistant to the transverse energy that manifests in string squeak, body handling noise, and parasitic feedback.
The Enhance Transducer adds these characteristics to the full spectrum audio performance of the Matrix VT Enhance to deliver a new level of sound quality and dynamic playing response.
