My brother uses this. Definitely the nicer of the two, but also $329.  It sounds amazing.

Hi Luc,
does you brother use Fishman's Aura with Fly or with some other piezo?
I was looking into getting Aura for my Fly, and I really respect and value your opinion

thank you in advance

He's using it with a Parker acoustic. The images that Fishman use sound really natural. I highly recommend at least trying it. The Zoom is nice if you just want to take the Parker piezo and fatten it up a little and add some light effects. It still sounds like an acoustic electric, but a good one. The Fishman can make you sound like a legit acoustic guitar. Pretty cool tool. :)

Great Luc, thank you very much for the answer.
I will start looking around for it to try it and then to find some good offer on used market :)

Personally I hate the Fishman Aura.  I find the IRs in the unit are very "phasey".  I use an Axe FX and shoot my own acoustic IRs. Much more pleasant IMO.

Thank you very much for your honest opinion. Just confirms that - "try YOURSELF before you buy it" is always of an essence!

GC also has a few Fly Deluxes currently JFYI

I will also have to state for the record that our PDF60W plays just as good if not better but it has a real nice setup

Good Luck simpleonly

 If it were me I would buy the Parker saddles from Graphtec and through in the midi and acoutisphonic kit! You will need to make mods but it's pretty simple.
