: I am getting a barbera implanted in my bridge and had an acoustic\tone concern. Does the barbera mute of otherwise adversley affect ones "acoustic sound". Everyone raves about it's use electricly. I notice a difference in my acoustic sound when I have the fishman "clamps" on as opposed to off. The Barbera's 8 sensors and cable being embedded inside the bridge surely must have some effect on the acoustic sound. Any comments?
I can't comment about the Barbera but about the Fishman:
Be sure that the felt inside the clamps don't touch the bridge crown at all.
It should reduce the muting effect.
The best I've done with Fishman's (when I had one) was to glue the elements on the bridge, with thin glue sheets and a hair dryer. It was then acoustically transparent.
