Aguilar Bass Pickups

Since their release in 2010, Aguilar pickups have become the new standard for exceptional bass guitar pickups. Providing the rich, musical tone that Aguilar gear is known for, Aguilar pickups are used by top luthiers and bass players the world over. Our pickup line now features eight different models with many more slated for 2013.

Whether you are looking for period-correct vintage flavors or the most modern tones; Aguilar has the pickup for your bass. Our pickups provide excellent string-to-string balance and consistency of tone throughout the entire range of your bass. The dynamic range of our pickups allows for a quick transient attack that responds to your playing style. And this tone is not limited to active-only instruments – with or without a preamp; you will get the deep lows, articulate midrange and sweet treble response that are the benchmarks of the Aguilar sound.

All Aguilar Pickups are passive in design and work great with or without onboard Active EQ'ing. Available in O.E sizes including Jazz Bass, P-Bass, Soapbars including popular sizes such as EMG 35, EMG 40, EMG 45, Bartolini BC, Bartolini P2 & Bartolini P4. Aguilar pickups have a model to suit your current 4,5, or 6 String bass or future build.
