Yes there probably is a dry jopint on the wiring or the jack input isnt tight enough also the battery connector could have a dry solder or looose connection I would go for it if the price is low and just spend a few bob to solder it or check the connections.Good Luck

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.

Low volume from Fishman Loudbox Mini mic input, using brand new XLR cable and dynamic mic. Mic works just fine on instrument input using a Hi-Z cable so problem is not mik


I have seen defective XLR cables so check it with an ohmmeter. It is possible the mic input preamp has been damaged. If that is the case, the unit will have to be repaired.

Very low volume from mic input even with Gain and Master turned full on


You haven't told us what type mic you are using. If you are trying to use a condensr mic with this, you will need a preamp that supplies Phantom power to the mic. You haven't told us what cable you are using. Do check that you aren't using a condenser mic as there will be virtually no volume.

When I connect the onboard Aura via USB to my computer and open the Aura imaging software, it doesn't recognize my device and a fishman product..... HELP!


You could call Martin Guitars at 1-888-433-9177, or visit their website:

And/or try Fishman:

Although they don't have a recognizable toll free number, they do have an online form.

If you have access to support for your computer, you could try that, instead.

Good luck, and I hope this helps!

Fishman Prefix Plus preamp on my acoustic guitar picks up the unwound strings well but the wound strings are barely audible


You could try boosting the bass and reducing the highs on the EQ setting, however there MAY be a probllem with the pickup, not the preamp.

I have a Fishman pre-amp mod MKAB Acoustic Base Optimized in a Michael Kelly Dragonfly 5FL TBK.. as soon as the plug is pushed in the jack, the battery lite on the amp flashes for an instant , then goes...


Most acoustic/electric pre-amp's red light comes on when the battery is low & ready to die. The red light flashes when you put the jack in because the battery light takes a fraction of a second to proccess. If the red light flashes off & on when you push on the pre-amp, it is probably because you are causing the battery connector to short or disconnect giving the pre-amp low voltage so the red light comnes on.

Ground hum from Martin OOCXAE having Fishman preamp...


do you have active or passive pick-ups? if active, pop in a new 9volt battery, that might do it, it worked for me. if that doesnt work, go to guitar center or somewhere and get a heavier insulated, better constructed cord. sonds like you might be completing the ground from interference if its not your battery. hope this helps
