Founder, producer and artist for Windham Hill Records, Will Ackerman, and his playing partner, David Cullen, recently visited Fishman’s Wilmington, Mass. headquarters to have his custom Froggy Bottom acoustic guitars outfitted with Fishman pickups by instrument specialist Tucker Barrett.
Fishman also set up a special demo of its Aura™ Acoustic Imaging Blender and its Loudbox™ and Loudbox™ Pro Acoustic Instrument Amplifiers. Fishman reps report that Ackerman and Cullen now plan to take Aura on their upcoming European tour.
Ackerman’s latest CD for Universal Records on his Mary’s Tree label, Returning, is a collection of new recordings of Ackerman’s favorite solos. In addition to touring in support of the new disc, Ackerman will again be part of the Windham Hill Winter Solstice Tour for the 2004/2005 season.
