Instant gratification and wows through my Fishman SA 220 SoloAmp i.e True acoustic reso sound on steroids with no feedback at extreme volumes I would never never consider playing at. Then I plugged it into my pedal box and '64' Princeton at rehearsal with the band. This is the first time I was able express what I heard in my head with the full ensemble of drums, harmonica, bass, and keyboard. Again, NO FEEDBACK with a true reso sound. My band members were smiling last night. Sonic bliss. Thank you Fishman! Good-bye Barcus-Barry, Good-bye Highlander.

At first I was going to have a local luthier install this pick up, partly because of time constraints, but after reading the online instructions, I decided I probably knew more about resonator installations, since I've done a few. It took me two hours to install. However, I wouldn't recommend someone installing this who has not had at least some experience installing new 1/4" jacks in acoustic instruments that you care about.
The only unexpected customization was that the two-piece bridge was slightly narrower than the slot in the spider; I expected to have to sand down the lower part of the maple to get a friction fit. I ended up putting a bead of silcon in the slot that made a solid fit when it set up. (I've used silicon in the past to adhere one of Fishman's old hot dot pickups on a spider resonator cone - holds tight but you can remove it easily when necessary.)
The sound quality of the Nashville spider pickup was terrific when I had finished: great bass response and a totally natural reflection of the instrument. I chose this pickup because of very good experience with many different types of Fishman pickups in the past and reading good reviews in online resonator sites.

.The aura pedal improved the sound on my 12 year old American made Houndog by 50%. By changing my old Fishman pickups to these improve my sound and tone by 150%!

.I have a Dobro Hound Dog Deluxe roundneck that I tune to open E and play with a bottleneck slide. The pickup that came with it (a cheaper Fishman) was a nightmare to amplify. You really had to crank the volume to get anything out of it, and you had to dial the trebs down to 1 to keep audience members' ears from bleeding. Plus, it sounded tinny and metallic like a really bad, National Steel copy or a trashcan with strings.

This little beauty isn't cheap, but worth every penny and then some. I'd pay twice the price. I first, changed out the cone for a Quarterman, had a put on a bone nut, and then my luthier installed the Fishman Nashville.

Oh man, what a difference! Now, I plug it in (through an ART preamp to boost the volume a bit) with a flat EQ, and I get a sweet, fat, rich, woody tone. It really cries the way a Dobro should. I can now focus on playing my best without worrying about unwanted overtones or piercing, tinny highs.

A former bandmate heard it and was knocked out by the difference. "Man, what did you do to your Dobro?"

I have yet to record with it, but I expect it would work well for that too.

If you play a spider-style resonator, this pickup is a must. I would take it to a pro for installation, though, and although it's hotter than the pickup that came with the guitar, it's still passive and may need a little boost from a preamp.

I plan on getting another one of these for my Regal squareneck as soon as I have the bread. I may not play like Jerry, but at least I can approximate that tone!
