One of Seymour Duncan’s most popular bass models, the Quarter Pound for Jazz Bass® was designed to take your bass tone to new heights. This neck and bridge pickup set has it all: hot output, great attack and massive attitude. The 1/4” diameter pole pieces and hot coil windings deliver a full, even response with great sustain and complexity that are at home in any genre of music. The neck pickup is RW/RP (reverse wind reverse polarity) for hum cancellation when both pickups are used together. These pickups are a drop-in replacement for any American Standard Jazz Bass®.
Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA the Quarter Pound for Jazz Bass® uses Alnico 5 rod magnets and Forbon flatwork, and is wax potted for squeal-free operation. Comes with black cover.
Below are impressions and anecdotal thoughts gathered over the years. Some are our own and some are from customers.
High output aggressive pickups. Simply quite loud. Among the loudest we have heard period
Punchy, snappy, aggressive tone that helps cut through other instruments, especially if there are multiple electric guitars and keyboards
They fit in a typical Jazz Bass® pickup route well. The pickups are of average depth. The length and width is pretty similar to the stock pickups in a Fender® J, or any pickups that are using the vintage style covers
Unique look with the over-sized pole pieces. The rest of the shell is similar to a vintage shell
