Great hardware, unreliable and impenetrable software

mwop, 09.05.2018
Fits very easily and well to a guitar with a Tunomatic bridge (I used a Jackson Rhoads). Floyd bridge guitars will require sufficient space between the bridge and the pickup and necessitate using the 'mild' adhesive to attach the pickup to the guitar itself. The wireless functionality is great - no noticeable latency and battery life is excellent. The stock / default sounds are wonderful and I could made very good use of the strings, wind, sax, flute type instruments but I found that piano/keys and and other 'high attack' type instruments such as nylon stringed guitar suffered terribly from ghost / artifact notes and were practically unusable even where playing extremely cleanly. Perhaps a factory fitted Tripleplay might improve on this (such as the Godin or Fender Tripleplay equipped guitars that are available).

Unfortunately, the real problem that I found was with the software. Even forgetting the time consuming and impenetrable 3rd party software components provided on a 'trial' basis (but still require registration and authorisation), the base FTP installation was incredibly unstable, at least in Windows 7, and would crash completely seemingly at random. The software interfaces are also quite terrible. Native instruments and Fishman should be ashamed of themselves for producing such user unfriendly interfaces.

I could have lived these shortcomings with that had the software been more stable. Unfortunately the instability of the base FTP software made the whole package utterly useless for live performances and there was no way I could rely on it for fleshing out the sound of a covers band.

Fishman Triple Play and Telecaster Install

gpa, 09.02.2014
Having been a wired Midi Guitar Player for over 15 years, I was excited by the prospect of owning The Fishman Triple Play

My first impression was that of a very good build quality of the pick up and controller and well thought out application/instruction to install it to various guitar bodies

Good instructions and all the necessary included tools, was confirmation that it was generally intended to be a very user friendly item to install

I was unaware how much of a challenge it was going to be in fitting it to my Telecaster however and it proved quite difficult with unsatisfactory results at first until after some trial and error, I decided to cut the shape of the carrier for the pick up out of the scratch plate to recess the pick up by 3mm and to also ensure some adjustment for the correct height
This was not a decision I made easily and not for the faint hearted!!

I'm sure not all guitars would be this difficult ...

It did however, work a treat!

The Fishman Triple Play does require careful setting up with the software
The sensitivity of the pick up and the height of pickup in conjunction with the guitars action, makes a huge difference to the overall performance
The software has been a bit frustrating, it seems that you can't return to the Fishman Triple Play software window after using a third party plug window i.e. NI Kontakt without shutting down the NI window first?

Experimentation by actually playing nearer to the bridge pick up got preferable results

I bought the Fishman Triple Play to play horns, in addition to guitar, in a soul band project, but soon realised it has great potential and flexibility as a general midi controller and now firmly accompanies my midi controller keyboard I use for composing

I still can't get my head around that its wireless though, with next to no latency, just the odd rogue glitch which is more down to my incorrect finger positioning and pressure than anything else ... just amazing!!!

I've now bought a wireless guitar set up too which now gives me total freedom on stage, in particular ...

I've yet to find a way to wirelessly control the volume, which I prefer to operate by foot pedal and am currently hardwiring a volume pedal between the computer interface and the PA

I'd recommend The Fishman Triple Play to anyone who is looking to either dabble in controlling their computer generated sounds with a guitar or who might be looking for a guitar midi controller alternative

The Fishman Triple Play is a serious contender in the Midi Guitar arena and gives the competition a real run for their money, especially considering the expandability of sounds

Above all else though, I'm having loads of fun with it!! ...
