Fishman isys I have the tuner/pickup combo. The pickup cuts out after playing for a few hours. I have tested my amp cable and that is not the problem. The tuner and volume have no issues. Could it be that the pick up wires are loose? Or overheating?

    The fishman Isys is a built in tuner/preamp. You cannot just pop it out and pop it into another guitar. The issue has nothing to do with the body, wood, strings, or bridge of my guitar. Its an electrical issue.

Its possible that if you changed strings the saddle might have changed position in its slot. It has to sit uniformly on top of the piezo element in order to work properly. Try testing the pickup(piezo element) first before suspecting the preamp.

Use circuit cooler to isolate the failure. It may be a component OR a crack in the circuit board.

You can also try putting a fan on the unit to verify if it is a thermal problem.

It is not clear if the volume knob you are talking about is in the amp or the guitar... SINCE you said you verified the amp is OK I have to assume the volume control you are talking about is in the guitar and my answer is based on that...

I SUSPECT that the resistance element and/or the wiper in the volume pot is damaged. One other possibility is the soldering of a wire to the volume pot may be bad. If you are competent with a soldering iron you could replace the pot yourself or take it to a competent guitar shop for repair. I would myself suggest you open the electronics and look for anything obviously wrong. I have ALSO seen one other problem where one lead of a pot is touching the CONDUCTIVE paint in the cavity where the controls are. If the shaft nut becomes loose and the pot slightly rotates this can happen, grounding out the signal.

Hey There,
If its adjustable its worth checking if the Pitch of the tuner is set right (normaly changed by a + & - button) Any normal tuner should be set to 440 which is standard Pitch.
Hope this is of any help

Hello, I bought a second hand Martin J1 that has a fishman rare earth single coil pickup fitted. The problem is, when its plugged into the amp ( AER 60w) it makes a cracking noise every so often when


You have several options:

1. Do nothing and live with the occasional problem.

2. Check your guitar cable and the battery connections for loose or intermittent connections/noise. Try to see if it's the amp responsible for the noise....ie, Is it caused by vibrations, or maybe static....especially in winter when it's dry. Your home power may have noise on the line, so borrow or rent a power conditioner which filters out noise. If that fails, go to 3.

3. Bite the bullet and pay a competent guitar tech/luthier to repair it. Most of these issues are due to loose/faulty connections. Should be less than an hour. Hey....It's a Martin.

3a. Pay a guitar tech to loosen the end pin connector so you can see if you can repair it yourself.

Hi ive had a fishman pick up installed under saddle of my accoustic guitar its fine but something is wrong becuase wen im slapping the strings and tapping guitar the sound goes very quiet for around 1...


It is possiblle that the sudden pulse from the pickup due to tapping is saturating the input of your amplifier, and that is what actually kills the signal. Try this into a different amp as a test. Once you do the test I can offer some suggestions to try.
