    Well if that is really the case then I understand everyone switching now: £429 - £270-290 -> Tosin $$$

    All Fluence are pretty normally priced, so if they're showing up in certain markets way different than other pickups then something is either off with the distribution, or there's an error, etc.

    Well, the Fishman Fluence sets are $40-70 more expensive than 'similar' SD & EMG active sets. I'm comparing sale prices from MF here, for example:
    Modern Fluence 7-string set is $249 ......vs...... Duncan BO AHB-1 7-string set which goes for $199.
    Fluence Abasi 6-string set is $259 .........vs...... Duncan EMTY 6-string set $219.
    Fluence Abasi 8-string set is $279 .........vs...... EMG 57/66 8-string 2 x $119 = $238 (price from EMG site).

    For me personally, the Fluences are definitely worth the extra money, in the least, you get additional voicings which is a feature that is not offered by other manufacturers. In my own experience, the Fluence sets can be had for cheaper than the advertised price. I use eBay, there's a certain seller who allows buyers to make offers, and he/she usually accepts 12-15% cheaper offers.

    Great job selling out a guy who deals below MAP.

    ^ I don't believe this seller is doing any thing wrong. MF & GC offer 12-15% coupons almost all the time, and if the coupon does not work online, just give them a call.

    Bumping to see if anyone tried these? Curious to see how these compare to the Devin Townsend set. Looking for a set that can go from active tightness to passive PAFyness.
