Stephen is a player's player, preferring to concentrate more on his music than equipment. "My signature pickup set has the full range of tones that you're looking for. Voice 1 is similar to the tone of the original Modern Humbucker Fluence set. And for the second voice, I like a bit more heat, some hot stuff on it... more edge, so that's in there too."
 
Each Fishman Fluence pickup has two distinct and useful sounds on-board. These sounds start with the revolutionary Fluence Core, the heart of Fluence tone. From this Fluence Core we then create the classic timbres and tone — colors you expect from great guitar pickups — as well as some you’ve never expected.
 
"I was never the super-critical guy. I'm not much for specs, but I like clean, full sounding pickups. We put Fluence in and I jammed on them for 45 minutes and thought... 'these things are freaking great...' I didn't want to stop playing."
 
Voice 1
"Like the original Modern Fluence sound that I love, but tweaked a bit in the midrange."
 
Voice 2
"This is my custom voicing with some tone and gain tweaks to give it that extra heat and edge.”
