Together these Quarter Pound bass pickups provide a sonically full voice with a hold on to your hats high-output punch. Each strike of the string provides a full low end bite with plenty of sustain. They’ve provided their unique punch for bass players from Blink 182, Alien Ant Farm, Rise Against, Bad Religion and Smashing Pumpkins. Players who have a P-J bass will now be able to get the rich tone of the Quarter Pound pickups with our P-J 4-String Bass Set.
The Quarter Pound for Jazz Bass® was designed to deliver hot output, great attack, and massive attitude. The diameter poles and intense coil winding delivers a full, even response, with great sustain and sonic richness. The magnets on the P Bass® expand the magnetic field and extend the frequency ranges for fat, full, punchy sound with tremendous mid-range presence and maximum output. Though often used for heavy rock tones, this pickup gives amazing tonal versatility, making it a favorite across the board in live and studio settings.
These pickups work well with classic rock, hard rock, punk, grunge and metal. For more versatility you can add a 2 or 3 band tone circuit. Each pickup is hand built in Santa Barbara, California.
