100's of Bass Pickups In Stock and Ready to Ship
Gain control of your tone with a preamp
Classic Bass Series pickups have a versatile voice for many musical genres, so the MV5CBC is one of Bartolini's most popular MusicMan® upgrades.
Classic Bass series upgrade pickups make you sound better, so you play better. They have a rich, deep voice with lots of high-end clarity and warmth. When you dig in, they are responsive and growly. When you pull back, they are clear and sweet. And they’ll take any slapping and popping you want to give them. The Classic Bass series is popular with progressive, jazz, gospel, and metal musicians where articulation is critical. Without sacrificing low-end, Classic Bass pickups are sweat-proof and won’t crackle and thud when you touch them or hit them with the strings.
If you play a wide variety of music, you know you need some pro-level pickups, but you don’t want to do a big upgrade project, Classic Bass pickups are a great choice. They are passive and will work with your current electronics in most basses.
