I want to start by saying that I love the FE/M2 pickups and have installed them in three basses (all 4 string). Unfortunately, these pickups, which were specifically designed for the Fender American standard Jazz V bass, do not balance the string volume well. The G string is much louder than all the other strings (according to my ears and an VU meter) and if I drop the G side of the pickups the G gets quieter - along with the D. Since the pickups are potted in epoxy, I can’t adjust the pole pieces. I ended up going back to the original Fender noiseless pickups (one of the first iterations that are stacked) and grounding the pole pieces.
Most people would probably just compress the signal and never know; but, I am not one of those people.
All the reviews i read were dead one. Very easy to talk to and extremely Knowledgeable! Even gave me advice about a pre amp they don’t even sale!!!!! WOW!!!!!
These pickups sounded very full and articulate. Very punchy, bright and warm.
I bought Delano bass preamp and Delano jazz pickups from Fat Bass Tone. The tech/salesman took the time to listen to me suggested these products. WOW! he was spot on very knowledgeable about bass gear...Delivery was very timley and fast. I have made Fat Bass Tone my goto company for my sound needs. I've already told several musicians about this company! Excellent job!
I’d definitely recommend Delano Pick ups and Preamps
