To the Moon and Back

Fishman created the Mike Inez Fluence Legacy series. The pickup set is multivoice and free from the hum, noise and inductance issues that plague even the most coveted wire-wound pickups, stated the manufacturer. It is designed to appeal to rock, metal and jazz players looking for their own bit of “magic,” and is a retro-fit replacement for most four and five-string soapbar-equipped basses. The Mike Inez Fluence Legacy Series pickup is available for four- or five-string instruments, as a single pickup or in a set with a standard Fluence Soapbar Bass pickup in the bridge position. Voice 1 is an exact sonic copy of Inez’s Moon bass, providing the same tone he has used throughout his career, from Alice Copper to Ozzy Osbourne. Voice 2 offers warm, vintage tones (passive). MSRP: $350.58 (sets) and $185.04 (single) Ship Date: Contact company Contact: Fishman,
