Item Description

"For unequalled sound quality and ease of use, it's hard to beat the performance of the Rare Earth Blend." - Fishman

The Fishman Rare Earth Blend Soundhole Pickup with Microphone has been redesigned with an improved microphone and re-voiced electronics to offer an even smoother treble response than their popular, category-defining predecessors. Yet nothing has been lost in this transformation. This Fishman guitar pickup and mic deliver the same unparalleled sound quality and ease of use serious musicians appreciate. Cutting-edge neodymium magnets provide excellent string-to-string balance, while the Fishman Rare Earth pickup's active electronics and low-noise, discrete circuitry design keep the sound pure and clean. Fishman also offers fingertip controls to adjust the input between the mic and pickup for the perfect blend.

Why Fishman? Fishman has been synonymous with the best in acoustic amplification for more than 25 years. Fishman established itself as the premier maker of OEM acoustic pickups and preamps for Martin, Gibson, Fender, Guild and many more. Today, Fishman is the choice of professionals in all styles providing everything a performer needs, from pickups and preamps to tone-shaping pedals and acoustic amplifiers. Wherever you find amplified acoustic instruments, you can bet you'll find Fishman.

Very Near Perfect for Acoustic Amplification
September 6, 2018
This pick up is very nearly perfect (well, that is a big statement). I'll qualify, it's among the best I've tried - including LR baggs m-80, m-1a, Element Active, anthem, most of the Fishman mag pickups, and tons of under saddle, and under sound board (Taylor es2, K&K). I could live with this pickup as my one and only, except for one (personal) major thing - no volume control onboard. For a nearly $300 pickup, with condenser mic, having no volume control was the deal breaker. Sound = excellent, blending possibilities right on board. So much to love - you may love it too. Fishman did a great job with this one.
  • Sounds great
  • Condenser mic blend is super addition
  • doesn't take much space (visually)
  • installs "permanantly" to endpin jack
  • Can split the pick up and mic signals at the jack with a "stereo" cable
  • Battery lasts a long time
  • No volume control on board
  • Battery replacement is not fast - have to remove pickup from body (not the end pin, just pickup)
  • No height adjustment for magnetic pickup.

Amazing pickup!
November 28, 2016
I bought a second Rare Earth Blend, I also have LR Baggs M80 and Seymour Duncan Mag Mic and REB works much better for me without any EQ'ing. Changing batteries requires removing the pickup and that's something you don't want to do on a stage. I soldered a CR2 battery which is pretty small and gives you around 500 hours of piaying so I don't have any issues with that anymore!
  • Terrific sound, pickup is pretty lightweight
  • No volume/tone control, short battery life

Reliable authentic sound
July 4, 2014
This is a great pick up for hassle free plug and play. Its more reliable than some under saddle units and an easier fit.
The mic lets your real sound through,reinforced by the humbucker. I'd recommend it highly even though its a little more expensive than some.
My only problem with it is the unnecessarily long cable, which I cut a meter out of and still had plenty. This probably ruins any warranty claim I might have, and some people might not want to take that chance.
