This pickup is pure tone Nirvana. Its slightly overwound wire definitely shines through. This is a record monster. You can almost dial in any tone. It’s worth the money.
I bought a Kloppmann P Bass pickup for my Lakland Duck Dunn and it sounds spectacular. Incredibly even and balanced vintage tone, but with a little extra edge to cut through the mix. Kloppmann pickups are indeed worth the higher price tag. Spectacular tone.
I installed the Kloppmann (with the included tone cap) into a Fender American Pro II P bass. The original was a nice pickup with good string to string balance but, hard to put into words, was missing something that I look for in a motown/Pino type sound which is what I am going for. This pickup delivers! Great low and low mids while still being balanced and giving detail to the notes and sound. With flats it for sure gets the Pino vibe going. I am totally happy with it!
