Fralin Jazz Bass® Pickups feature hand-built bobbins, and hand-wound clarity. Their manufacturing process allows them to achieve unparalleled quality control. These Jazz Bass® Pickups consist of local fiberboard and USA-Made Magnets. Fralin winds each pickup by hand, one at a time. Each pickup is wound using their proprietary “Sectioning” technique. This gives the pickup a sweet, clear tone. Finally, they wax-pot the pickup to preserve the pickup, and prevent microphonics.
Offering a wide tonal range, they are wound to 60’s Specifications, which give them more output and balance. Expect a sweeter tone, with a warm midrange. Also, you’ll hear top-end sparkle and clarity. Nuances will come to life as you notice increased presence. They will break up late and stay clean longer.
Fralin’s pickups are dynamic – they’ll get punchy if you dig into them. They’ll have top-end spank when you slap them. You’ll also notice they’ll stay soft and dynamic when you play light. Finally, these Jazz Bass® Pickups are for those who are not happy with the tone from stock pickups. These tend to be sweeter-sounding, not aggressive. You’ll wonder why you didn’t make the switch earlier.
The 5% Overwind produces a thicker and darker tone. It reduces the highs by 5% and increases the lows and mids by 5%…basically thickening up the midrange while retaining brightness.
The Raised Centers raise the center pole piece magnets on your bridge pickup. This helps with string balance on fingerboards which have a radius of less than 9.5 inches. Do not choose this option if you have a flat fingerboard.
