single coil 4 string jazz-type bass pickups
this is a vintage single coil j style pickup made with 60’s era correct heavy formvar wire and alnico v magnets. in winding these pickups we use a simulated hand wound pattern that lowers the resonant peak of the pickup resulting in a pleasing yet present high end. these pickups have a very even and full sound with that snap and grind associated with the classic basses of that time. includes black covers (exposed pole pieces).
this pickup is available with an alternative "70′s wind” featuring enamel wire and have less winds than the 60′s version. this results in a clearer more open sound with less midrange warmth that is more reminiscent of the marcus miller type of tone.
