    I wonder how flexible the fans will be. A 6 with a 25"-24" with that grey-ish finish would be really hard to pass up.

    I'd be down for another 8 or a Floyd 6, interested to play these at NAMM.

    I have Fluence Moderns in my .Strandberg* Prog 7 and I have tons of bad things to say about them :D But ultimately they're just subjective things that boil down to me not really liking actives :)

    To be honest I've hated the tone in all the videos I've seen of Tosin since he switched to Fishman.

    However, I loved his Lace Strandberg tone in videos but swapped my X-bars for M8s because I hated them so much.

    I can't remember, did Tosin switch to Fishman before or after the most recent album? I strongly dislike a lot of the tones on that album (mostly the cleanish stuff), but that could be an amp/mixing/mastering thing.

    I'm pretty positive he was playing his prototype Fishman's on the album. Personally I think it's the best and tightest tone yet. Although I'm pretty sure he uses multiple guitars when recording albums.

    Last album was all Duncans, pre-Fishman.

    Ah there we go, makes sense. Not a SD fan most of the time.

    Man, I never thought Tosin had good tone in the first place. When I think of over-processed digital tone, AAL's rhythm tone is what comes to mind.

    Floyd Rose 8 string would be pretty cool...

    I was talking about his tone live and in clinics/demos. There was one in particular where he played his prototype and a TAM10, and I just thought the Fishmans sounded awful in comparison.

    Sound recording in clinics may not be of highest quality, have you seen this one?

    I think Fluence just for one reason : Versatility...

    This is why I am really planning to get them installed one day on my Agile 827 ;)

    BTW this videos kills me... Tosin, what a true musician...
